Lola butterfly

So all good intentions to draw over the holidays went out the window. Things have been happening, primarily life and just getting stuff done before Winter kicks in.

In my last post (back in the dark ages), I played with Sandy Hunter's lovely new pattern Lola. I had a lot of butterfly envy going on after seeing Sandy's samples and drew this one the very next day, but, as you can see, life got in the way of me posting it right away. Here it is:

To see all of Sandy's wonderful samples (I adore the butterfly versions and frankly, am incredibly jealous that I didn't think of using Lola that way myself!!!), a few more small ones from me, plus (most importantly) a step out of how to draw Lola visit the blog post here.

While you're there, take some time to have a good look around at Sandy's amazing work. I am in awe of her tangle remixes!

Hope the remainder of your week is fabulous - I have a sketched idea for this week's challenge  along with a deadline piece that I have to complete by tomorrow night (gulp). The clock is ticking - I guess I'd better work on that deadline first, huh?

Also, thank you so much for the comments on my…

challenge #162 - Initial String

A whole day at home for the first time in about 2 weeks. So, so good. I have another busy few days then should finally be able to take a break and enjoy some of the school holidays. Hopefully with lots of drawing :) This week's challenge is to use your initials as a string. 

Here's where I started (I took some artistic licence with the "w" to fit my idea):
My mum, Ann, is on my mind a lot right now - this is her "A":

Hope your weekend is wonderful - mine is going to be crazy!
