Making Mondays: Deer Stitching and New Work
So I hope I will be showing you the finished piece soon! I’m not quite sure what I’m going to use it for once it’s finished…what do you think?
And some more making has been going on around here…I recently finished a commissioned illustration for a dear friend and very supportive customer. She commissioned it to give to some friends of hers as a wedding present. Their wedding was on the weekend and apparently they loved it and already have it hanging up in their house – yay!
You probably guessed that the illustration was inspired by the Lear poem The Owl and the Pussy Cat – very fitting for a wedding! The words are here.
This was a bit of a mixed media piece – I first used ink to draw it, then did some digital colouring, then finished it off with some pencil work. Prints of the illustration are also available now in the shop. Yay!
