It's been a while since I last posted. It's actually been about a year, how quickly time flies when you're busy.
It was hard to come back to the blog, or even to decide if it should continue, but this has been a documented visual record of my journey back to art, so I thought it would be a shame to stop. So, as from today, I'm back blogging :)
I'm really thrilled to tell you about a brand new and exciting online workshop that I'm involved in . 'Muse Merriment' This is a 10 week workshop filled with 10 lessons from some of your (and mine) favourite online teachers. More about those in a moment.
So, what's the course about?
The inspiration for the Muse Merriment workshops organised by Kelly Hoernig is the 9 Muses. These 9 muses were from Greek Mythology and had the role of inspiring artists through the arts. In fact, they dedicated their life to this purpose. Every week as the workshops are run you'll be discovering these muses through each teachers own unique interpretations. Each lesson includes a video introducing the teacher talking about their muse and how they have been inspired by them, the project video, PDF downloads and an extra video where each teacher will share where and how they find inspiration.
This totally awesome 10 week Muse Merriment workshop is available for $74.50 which works out at a fantastic $7.50 per class! Class begins August 25th, and closes October 27.
Sounds good right?
Ok, so here's what to do to make sure you reserve your spot on the Muse Merriment workshop.

So, it's finally here, the thing I've been planning for what feels like forever.
I'm finally off to show my art in New York at Surtex. I'm sat here in the airport waiting to be called for my flight, I've crazy palpatations which I'm putting down to too much coffee and an overload of excitement but it's all good.
I'll be posting pictures on Instagram and following up with a post here too from NY.
Well for those of you who have been following along on Facebook, you'll know that I'm currently working on my new Children's Book. Although I'm not sharing any other story details right now, I am sharing that the main character is a seagull. I ran a mini call for name suggestions, to which 179 of you responded! I'm loving all the ideas, and I have picked one of the names for him (I will use this name in the book along with a credit given to the person who suggested it.)
before I announce the name, I thought it would be fun to have a little competition.
The winner of this competition (I'm hoping for 5 of you) will win a signed Limited Edition print of the seagull shown above. He is the initial sketch for the main character.
So, before you start to leave your comments, here are a couple of clues.
The seagull is a boy
His name starts with S
To enter, leave your name suggestion as a comment. The closest ones (spelling differences will be allowed) will be put into a hat and I'll draw out 5 winners.
I'll announce the 5 winners along with the name at midnight Friday 28th March (GMT)
