Valentine’s Special

Happy Valentine’s Day to you. Not everyone is a fan, and not everyone cares. But I’ve been playing around with love-related themes this month. And I’m happy that I have my first completed piece for 2017.

It’s a little different to my usual pieces – perhaps a little more graphic but it originally started with a hand-drawn sketch.

Anyway, I’d love to hear what you think of this latest one. Feel free to comment below. To stay more up to date with my content, follow my Instagram.

 

 

You’re My Universe – WIP

It was a mad week in the office, in an understaffed-overworked kind of way. But I had some pretty cute ideas for my art. My favourite is “You’re My Universe”. My boyfriend told me he liked the concept so I’m a little proud of it. I’m thinking this could be a great piece to develop, maybe even for Valentine’s Day. What do you guys think?

If you haven’t already seen my Art Goals post, I made it a goal to work on some art every day this year. And so far, I’ve kept to it. Follow me on Instagram for more regular updates.

Can I still be happy if I didn’t get paid to do art ?

If I find a full time job elsewhere, have I given up ?

When should I give up ?

 

Sound familiar?
