Hey everyone, I have some news! Recently the company I worked for was sold, and I have taken the opportunity to strike out on my own and start working on my art and design projects full time!

I am so excited to have this opportunity and have already been making the most of my new schedule. I am now streaming four days a week on Twitch, and am enjoying sharing my progress with everyone who pops in for a chat!

Hi everyone, apologies for the lack of posts in the last few months but our cat Su has been very sick so a lot of my time has been taken up with looking after her. Su has lymphoma and is currently about a quarter of the way through her treatment so I may not be able to post as often as I had been at the beginning of the year.

I did finish the alphabet section of 36 Days of Type, but unfortunately couldn't complete the entire month including the numbers. If you're curious here are the last few designs that I completed:

I have moved all my Vlogs to my Twitch channel as unfortunately Vidme shut down at the end of last year. Here is the December Vlog!

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you have all had a good holiday, I am back and ready to go!

One of the things you might have noticed if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram is that I have started streaming on Twitch.

I will be streaming my art projects on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and am currently working on an oil pinting of a Victorian bunny. I may also stream games eventually as I have quite a few drawing and art games.

Here is a timelapse video of my most recent stream, I will be working on this painting again on Thursday.

This month I am also enrolled in the MIID Winter design school, so I will be busy making patterns throughout January and February. I have already started on the briefs for the intermediate and advanced tracks, here is a sneak peek:

Finally, one of my goals for 2018 is to improve my digital painting. I love making graphics, but my actual digital painting skills are in need of drastic improvement! I have had a few breakthoughs recently, and have been trying out these Photoshop sketch brushes from Macalabs. I think with regular practice I should see good progress. I am posting progress photos on my instagram account and will do a round-up here when I have a few more under my belt!

Thank you for your support in 2017, bring on 2018!
