419. Pegasus!

November 22, 2010

November 2010.

Well, it’s been a while.  I haven’t had much drawing or writing time recently. Things have been chaotic, to say the least!

Here’s a little cutesy drawing I whipped up on the Gimp using my Eee PC netbook. Picture me drawing using a little touchpad thingamijig (sorry – I have no grip on the technical jargon!).



404. Winged horse flying over flowers

April 7, 2010

Original illustration: ink fineliner on paper, April 2010. This image is from the RedBubble t-shirt previewer.

I drew this as just a little sketch and my husband turned it into a RedBubble friendly t-shirt. I am very happy with how it turned out. If I can say so myself. I posted it here and here. The first one is my RedBubble Profile, the second is my Bubblesite. The Profile allows users to comment on images and favourite them, the Bubblesite is an online store.

379. Mr Hippo’s Herbarium

September 17, 2009



Ink fineliners on paper, August 2009.

Caption reads: “When Mr Hippo was not chasing the local river fishermen, he enjoyed growing herbs for the organic produce market.”

I was trying to combine a Beatrix Potter-inspired cute animal in pretty garden vibe with that morbid truth that the hippopotamus is an incredibly dangerous animal.

A few years ago, on a visit to a zoo, we were able to handle the skull of a pygmy hippopotamus. I could not believe how sharp its teeth were… and that was the smaller hippo. I imagine the full size version would be full on terrifying!

I have made this design available for sale on greeting cards and art prints:


slightly morbid children’s art

September 16, 2009

Some slightly disturbing but amusing drawings by my son (aged 6 years old at the time).


Three bananas on a table smiling, while the fourth banana is sad because it is being eaten.


A house eating people (with the words “munch munch” written below its mouth), while a cloud smiles and watches.


A tree and a person, both sad for some reason. I can’t remember what the explanation was for this one!


A 4-year-old’s Menagerie

August 1, 2009

I found these drawings in my notebook. They are usually the results of my morning trips to a local coffee shop. While I sit there enjoying my soy cappuccino, my pre-school child takes my notebook and pen and begins sketching. Here’s some of her drawings from this year.




368. Fat Cat With Spots

304. Feelings…

November 25, 2008


Watercolour pastel and pencil on paper, October / November 2008.

This is from one of my rare super-girly happy warm fuzzy moments. Maybe life is finally eroding away my super-cynicism.


303. Cute Giraffe

November 21, 2008


Pastel pencil on paper, October / November 2008.

Giraffes! I like giraffes! I have recently had success with a giraffe design I drew for a t-shirt – I’ve been so surprised with the interest people have in giraffes.

In the past I enjoyed collecting giraffe figurines. They are one of the few animals that rival horses in the race to be my favourite animal! haha (I like animals in general so I don’t think I could ever say I don’t like a particular creature… with the possible exception of wasps!)

(On the 13 November 2008 this image was made available for sale as a gift card and matted print via the RedBubble.Com site. The card was selling for AUD$3.69 and the print for AUD$30.75.)

286. Pontificating Porpoise

September 6, 2008

Permanent Marker on yellow tinted linen paper, August 2008.

Hehehehe I’ve been mucking around with whale-themed sketches at the moment. I had to alliterate it, didn’t I?!

Linen paper is fascinating – I found it on the scrapbooking shelf at a local department store. It has this cloth-like texture and is fairly thick. I bought a packet of it to use for craft activities for my teen Bible study group, though ended up using about half of it for my own drawings! 😀
