I’ve been meaning to create this for months after a request from my son but inspiration just would not come.

Then Friday night I just felt the urge to draw and by Saturday afternoon it was complete. Phew. Wasn’t expecting that.






Creativity equals chaos, at least on a small scale.

I can’t seem to stop myself from taking over whatever space I have available to me for the duration of a drawing.

And I love it.

Common dolphin

Quick sketch to remind myself I can still draw. Really trying to be disciplined and finish editing my novel before attempting any more big art projects.

It’s been too long since I’ve seen dolphins, with a bit of luck hopefully that will change in the summer!



I asked permission to use one of The Foraging Photographer’s beautiful photos months ago (thank you!) and decided it was high time I took up the challenge. You can find more inspiring photos here.

It’s been far too long since I drew something that I could start and finish within a few hours.

Work in progress

It’s been a while since I’ve done enough drawing to make my hand ache. As this piece is taking me so long, I thought I’d take a picture of my work in progress.

Orcas feeding. Probably got another 6-7 hours work to go but I’m pleased so far.


Deep sea octopus

Today is not a good day, plans have been cancelled, lots of painkillers taken. Trying not to get too doom and gloom about it all and step one is remembering the productive things I’ve done throughout the rest of the week including drawing this little octopus.

I have a lot on over the next few weeks but I’m hoping to be able to draw a few more little creatures rather than attempting anything on a larger scale.
