Friday Illustration: Onna Bugeisha


I've just got a new brush pen so who better to try it out on than an Onna Bugeisha or female samurai and the bamboo background evokes my love of the Arashiyama bamboo forest in Kyoto that's on my wish list to see.

nae man can tether time or tide - from Tam O' Shanter, Robert Burns

Last year I did a few illustrations for Burns Night & lo and behold here it is again on January 25th. So here are a few new illustrations of a few great quotes from the great poet, Robert Burns. Happy Burns Night everyone, will you be piping in the haggis this year & reading tam o' shanter or address to a haggis?

January Playlist: Workout

I'm going to do a monthly playlist this year, here's the first, I'm just getting into running and I love Jillian Michaels' workouts so of course it had to be a workout playlist, with lots of 90's dance & classic cheese to get you moving!

Friday Illustration: The Goldfinch

Week 3: The Goldfinch

 I finally finished the Goldfinch, a good easy read but it was too long and the ending was a a bit middle of the road. 
Have you read any great books lately?

Friday Illustration: Comet Lovejoy

Week 2: Comet Lovejoy

Did you spot Comet Lovejoy this week?  It should be visible (under good conditions - storms go away!) for another 2 weeks & then it's not expected to be back for 8,000 years! Also is there another earth out there?!

Friday Illustration: Swimmer

Week 1: Swimmer

New Year, New Illustration Project: I’m going to start posting a new illustration each Friday, it might be about a funny news story or an event that happened that week or a quotation or a place I visited or like this weeks a personal goal to start swimming! So by the end of the year I'll have an illustrative diary of my own 2015 in 52 illustrations {1 down, 51 to go!}.
