a few updates…

This blog has gone awry… sorry about that.

I have another blog which is to do with working for myself so I’m suppose to update that website/blog which I find hard enough but I’ve signed up to an online drawing/creative class so I will start to add my progress.


Before my Niece was born I came up with several ideas for things to make for her… many were beyond my skills as my imagination took hold! but I did come up with a little plush toy to make… here’s a sketch of the toy with a friend… who is very jealous of the balloon!

I made the one on the right for Sola. seen below the scary alien (that’s obviously not for Sola!)

below is a version re-created in Illustrator, which I’ve not used in years so proved to be a challenge – did help finding out that you can add multiple effects to one shape hoorah!

I couldn’t figure out a good way to create a fluffy coat though… oops.

I made Sola a Birthday Card for her first birthday – should have kept the background less fussy but I don’t think a one year old will mind too much!

Here’s Sola on her first birthday eating the “Lamb Carrot plush” – if you wonder why the name well my twin brother (Sola’s dad) came up with it and it’s now stuck.

She’s so stylish for a one year old!

I did make a rabbit toy for her too… I forgot to take pictures so here’s a mobile phone pic of the body and the completed version – next time I visit Sola (she lives in Paris and I in London!) I will have to get a picture of her with the rabbit – if it’s still in one piece and not eaten alive!!) lol
