I started a new job recently working with young people and it's got me wanting to start drawing and painting again after seeing how creative they all are. I've seen loads of posts online about Art Journals/Sketchbooks and I'd love to start one myself, so I'm hoping over the next few months I'll have some brand new art work to place on here that's hopefully different from my normal stuff.

I was always told by art teachers that I was very neat with my art (even though my pages were never clean) so this is my attempt to be a bit more free with my creativity and hopefully use some new materials. 

Also I've started buying some supplies to make and sell my disney designs as jewellery. If the testers work then they'll be up for sale shortly (maybe even in time for Christmas) and there may also be potential to sell some prints of my work for those that are interested. 
Hey all, 
Just to let you all know that I'm in the process of moving house so won't be uploading any new drawings for a while and also may be a bit slow to respond to messages (At least until I can get my internet and computer up and running) but I will definitely respond once I'm back up and running properly so you can still send me notes/messages etc. 
Thanks for your patience :)
I was contacted by :icontarsadams: in regards to my disney line arts being made into stickers for her home sticker business. We've come to an arrangement and she's currently in the process of producing the stickers now. They should be out from next week so go check out her store for the princess stickers as well as a load of other cool stickers! I know a few people have mentioned to me about stickers well here's your opportunity to get some :D (and I'm sure if you ask her nicely she'd be happy to do any other stickers you wanted designed for a price of course). I'm really excited to see how they turn out and I hope you all like them too.

As I update my artwork she is also thinking of adding new stickers for the new work so I'm open to any sticker requests too (though I've still got a cue of requests to get through at the moment so may take me a little while). Once I've done a few more of the disney line arts I was planning on moving on to doing comic heroes or some such depending on how well they'll transfer to the style so I'm open to non-Disney images too. 

As well as my designs she also does stickers for shops, cars, weddings, baby showers, parties, wall art/mural, boats, caravans and more! They also have regular competitions on facebook so keep your eye out for those. The online store is at www.etsy.com/shop/savvysticker… with Facebook page for the stickers at www.facebook.com/SavvyStickers and you can contact her via 0448515306 or savvy stickers@hotmail.com for more information. Would be great to get some feedback on them too. 

Due to the use of the images by Savvy Stickers and the fact that the image has reached so far across the internet without any input from me I'll be watermarking all the images currently up and for future. You are welcome to still use them for tattoos for personal use as usual but any other use please ask my permission before hand. 

So my sister sent me a message the other day with a link to a disney tattoo website and my ariel lineart featured on it three times fuckyeahdisneytattoos.tumblr.c… and I found that doing a simple search online gave loads of hits for it (including versions in colour :) wevegotyoucovered.buzznet.com/… ). I can't believe it as I almost didn't even put it up here as it was just random drawings I did for my sister. I never would have believed it would become so popular.
Thanks everyone for all the great comments and for those of you who got it tattooed an even bigger thanks, as knowing that someone loves your work enough to want it on their body permanently is just so flattering and gives me a lot of pride as an artist. ^_^

Ok speech aside I'm finally cracking down on some more disney line arts (while I'm not searching for modelmaking work) and I've got my belle ready to scan and upload so I'll get that done later today or tomorrow (though truth be told I'm not sure I like it much). I'm also working on a rapunzel tattoo for my sister but unfortunately you guys won't be able to see that one, as we want it to be personal and unique (and the ariel has shown how unlikely that would be if it's up here). I'm still up for suggestions on any further characters to do and also what do people think about me doing a disney villains/superhero series? Not sure how well the superhero one would go but they're my other big passion aside from disney.

Modelmaking wise I've been working on some simple puppets for an amateur production of Skellig that just finished last week so I'll upload some images of those soon too. I'm in the process of finishing up my simba model that was supposed to be given to my sister 2 years ago for christmas... whoops but she's still finishing my christmas gift too so all is fine. I'm thinking of starting to create my own jewellery based on the disney lineart as well as a few other things I've got in mind so once I start on those I'll get some pictures up too and maybe if I can make enough I'll start selling them online so I'll keep you all posted on that. Other than that not much else is happening right now.

Hope all is well with you guys and I know it's late but happy new year!
So I've graduated from uni now YAY :D and I'm on the lookout for work. I just finished a short stint at M C Modelmaking in Chatham and I've got some props to make for a production of Skellig, which sounds like good fun. Apparently I'm going to be making some wings, dead pigeons, owl puppets and more exciting things :). I'll get some photos up of them when they're done but for now i've not got much stuff to upload as I've been really super busy. Our house is being sold as well as some other unfortunate stuff that came up, which has taken up a lot of my time so although I said to some people that my Belle drawing would be up soon I haven't had a chance to get it up. I'll try and scan it in asap and get some more drawings done for you lot but I can't promise anything soon. I've managed to make a mould of my simba model too but as of yet haven't made a cast so I shall hopefully have a finished image of that up soon too. Fingers crossed my airbrushing skills are up to the task of painting that :P.
Thanks to everyone for the favourites and watches over the past month or so. Sorry it's taken me so long to reply but I make sure to always reply to them all. Hopefully the next journal entry will come with lots of new uploads but for now all I can say is Belle will be up soon so keep posted! :D

Final Year Show

Journal Entry: Sat May 19, 2012, 3:34 AM


So I'm at the end of my uni course now and getting ready to go along to my final year show in London. I'm so super busy right now that it's a bit crazy, hence why I've not yet uploaded any more disney lineart stuff or any artwork for that matter, however I have a list of characters people want me to do for tattoo designs as well as general interest so they will be done once my show is over :D. If anyone is interested in meeting me and seeing my modelmaking work from the last three years then you are more than welcome to come and see mine and a whole load of other modelmaking students work at the New Blades exhibition at Holborn Studios in London on the 14th June 2012. It's free entry and the public viewing is from 10am to 5pm. There's also a bar there if you wanted some drinks :D. It should be really interesting to visit as there are 4 universities that will be displaying showing things ranging from buildings, props, animatronics, prosthetics and more. You can have a look at some of the stuff that was shown there over the past few years here www.modelshop.co.uk/article/sh… to see if it's something you'd be interested in.

Ok. So I'm getting a bit bored when at home and I decided to do some more disney silhouettes, Currently working on a tinkerbell and rapunzel. Are there any other good disney characters people want me to do? I'm thinking of trying out some other animated characters too to see if people can recognise those too.
Also I'm trying to build up my portfolio and needed some ideas for things to sculpt, such as characters and things. Any ideas people?
Sorry this is a bit of a boring journal update just wanted some input from artistic people. :)

New Journal Skin

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 20, 2011, 3:30 AM


So the wonderful :iconnatradzi: bought me a three month premium membership and as part of it I can use journal skins so i thought I'd have a go with a new one and see what it looks like :).
I've been busy recently and haven't really been doing any artwork but I'm sure I will be doing some again soon so when I do I'll post it up here.
Sorry for the boring journal post.

Old Work

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 1, 2009, 12:08 PM


So i decided that i haven't put any work up in a while and decided to raid my old a-level books and my more recent art books done for my foundation diploma. I started working on some more Disney characters in my calligraphy style and so far I've done Belle and the beginnings of Aurora. The rest will come in due time. Sorry to all those of you watching me that will have a whole load of random messages saying i've uploaded new work. I'm doing it in bulk because my internet has been a bit pooey recently so if i don't do it now i might never get it done.

I was tagged ... Doh!

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 12, 2008, 1:20 PM


I got tagged by :iconcrucifixjel:
=======================

1.post these rules.

2.each person tagged MUST post 8 random facts about themselves.

3.tags should write a journal entry of these facts

4.at the end of the post, 8 more peoples must be tagged.(take that!)

5.go to their page and tell them they've been TAGGED!
=======================

8 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME

1. I used to be vegetarian, for roughly 6 years, but had to turn to the dark side (AKA eating meat) not too long ago.

2. My favourite animal is the wolf so I adopted and walked with a wolf called Lunca from the UK wolf conservation society for my 17th birthday.

3. THIS ONES A BIT DISGUSTING SO BE WARNED!!! I used to have a hammertoe (where there is abnormal bending of the joint of the toe) in my left second biggest toe and had to have part of my bone removed and a pin placed into my foot (nice!)

4.  I've survived without a scratch; being dropped on my head as a baby, a car crash where the car rolled over as an older baby, accidentally forcing my hand through a window as a teen. (I'm sure there are more but they're the most prominent/dangerous)

5. As a hobby I'm part of a drama society and I have been in many plays and pantos, however I prefer being backstage and have been stage manager, set designer, sound manager and propertys manager all before the age of 14.

6. I have lots of experience with disabled people. I used to volunteer at the Riding for the Disabled Association on saturdays, care for my friend with Cerebral palsy and go on holidays with the British Polio Fellowship since i was a young child (not sure what age).

7. My lucky number is 13 because both my mum and grandmother (mum's mum) were born on friday the 13th and if they weren't here I wouldn't be. Also the sum of the month and day of my birthday equal 13.

8. arrgg i'm running out of facts... umm i suffer from Spheksophobia -fear of wasps. It started due to a bad experience at a wedding where they were constantly following me so i got really worked up. I've been really bad around them ever since. I start shaking, getting really paranoid and sometimes even burst into tears. So that's the last, and most embarrasing, fact. Hope it wasn't too boring reading this.

8 people I tag (sorry guys):

graphics tablet

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 16, 2007, 1:21 PM


woo i got a graphics tablet from my family and it's huge and so awesome. My family are so sweet. They'd already bought it for me as a present for my results even though i hadn't got my results yet and my mum wrote a message saying well done on the front. Aww my family are so sweet like that. Hopefully i can learn to work it and submit some digital art. I'm so happy teehee :)

disney drawings

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 7, 2007, 11:48 AM


So yesterday i finished my exams and that left me with a free day today to do some drawing. I was gonna do some drawings about the dream i had last night but decided to draw some disney characters for my sister disney themed party. I found an old keyring from the beauty and the beast musical and copied the drawing from that and decided to use the technique fromthat to draw the other disney characters. they look really good and so far i've drawn ariel, beast, pegasus and adult simba. I think i'm gonna start a mini project to draw as many disney characters as i can in this style which you can view probably tomorrow 9if you're actually reading this) when i scan them. i want to make a print of the ariel one (even though she only has one arm) but i doubt i can seeing as disney characters are copyright of disney
Oh and thanks everyone for the 500 pageviews. I know it's a bit late but i haven't really been paying attention to it.

Hello everyone at deviantart today i was feeling really happy and got really hyper earlier. Just wanted to say hello to anyone out there and happy chinese new year (even though it's a few days late) By the way has anyone heard of ' A chorus line' the musical? It's a great dancing musical and i really wanted to see it in the theatre but nobody has ever heard of it so nobody is producing it. Anyway i'm rambling in a pointless journal entry. Sorry guys :)
