My RedBubble Folio Cull

September 29, 2010

I am currently going through the surprisingly emotionally painful process of going through my art and t-shirt designs on RedBubble and deleting the least viewed / least favourited / least purchased designs. Hopefully the end result will be a higher quality folio.

I warned my redbubble contacts that I would be doing an art cull, asking them to favourite any of my designs they particularly like to stop me from deleting those particular designs. You don’t have to be an artist to have a redbubble account, by the way – if you like to look at good art, I encourage you to consider signing up for an account so you can see what different artists and designers are up to!

Mum’s New Art Blog :)

May 1, 2010

http://annepickersgillsart.wordpress.com/

Last week I was helping my mother set up a new blog / website about her Lord of the Rings and Robin Hood themed art. It will be well worth adding the RSS feed to your feed reader so you can be alerted to when the blog becomes public (which is not the case as I write this).

The RSS feed is feed://annepickersgillsart.wordpress.com/feed/.

Her current site (as I write) is http://pic6.piczo.com/AnnesFrodoArtEtcetera/?g=1. I think her work is pretty amazing, and I’m sure you will too.

She’s also been known to sell her art at http://myworld.ebay.com.au/frodosmum61/.

396. Christmas Cat

January 13, 2010

20090913-flokot-christmascatsmall

Watercolour pencil and colour pencil on paper, 2009.

I wanted to create a Christmas card friendly design. It was good fun drawing this cat by a fireplace. Even though it’s summer during our Christmas, those of us in the southern end of the continent do get a decent amount of freezing cold days.

This drawing can also be found at my redbubble.com Bubblesite.

Watercolour pencil, watercolour pencil and colour pencil on paper, July 2009.

This is a bit of a flashback piece for me – more akin to the type of stuff I was drawing in the late 1990s / early 2000s! A little inner Goth that keeps trying to crawl out… Admittedly, this one is relatively colourful when compared to some of my teenage years drawings.

I’ve made this painting available as an art print and greeting card, see http://flokot.redbubble.com/sets/79778/works/3471712-2-girl for more information.

367. Horse and Cupcakes

July 23, 2009

200809-journalcovers-flokot2

Pen, watercolour pastel and watercolour pencil on paper, Septemeber 2008.

This drawing was inspired by the desert-style horse. I guess I got its general body shape from Akhal-Teke style horses. The cupcakes are inspired by… umm… cupcakes.

Watercolour pastel on paper, 2007-ish.

I like looking out the back door at night, when the only sign of life is the glow of lights in nearby streets.
