I came back from work yesterday, feeling slightly lethargic and not really very excited about anything in particular, then I checked my RB and Holy Macaroni !Someone left 19 comments and favourited 13 of my works!!!!! At first I thought it must be a spammer. Hmmph! But as I started reading through her commens, I realised this person has gone through my works, one by one, and have taken the time to add very sincere and truly heart warming comments to them.…
I was so blown away I didn’t reply any of her comments immediately. Stunned… but in a happy sort of way.Judy You made what’s left of yesterday a blissful one. I went to bed happy as a puppy. So from the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank
Gee… I just found out there’s the new ’Share it ’button added at the bottom of each artworks. So now you can simply share all your fantastic, creative works to the BIG WIDE WORLD. Very powerful…. But with great power comes great responsibility… No?…
So i went testing testing… * Pink * straight to twitter without all the usual haasle. Not bad. not bad… next I tried facebook. Then I stop. And I thought, do I really want to share my bubble world with facebook? Should I? If for promotional sake, YES, I should. Why not? Tap into that vast network of friends out there, right? So why am I getting that tummy knot before I hit the button?
Honesly do i want everyone on my facebook list, including workmates, etc. and the odd ‘not my friend but added them anyway and forgot to un-friend them’ to know
Myoriginalsin and I have just started a new group called Post-it Art .
This group was inspired by how everyday materials around you can be used for those spur of the moment doodles. Ever noticed how we doodle on bits of paper while chatting on the phone,on napkins while enjoying a cuppa. When our minds relax and start to wonder… These doodles often form the very essence and foundation to ideas we later develop.
This group is here for people to share their doodles and to inspire each other. Sketches & drawings are an important part in teasing of ideas which leads to greater development. They should be celebrated.
So NEVER underestimate what you can draw and sketch with things around you! Go on! Start drawing something!
I’m thinking of setting up a group to showcase artworks created on post-its. I’ve never set up a group before. Been searching to add my post-it doodles to a group and realise that we haven’t actually got a group for artworks created on post-its, etc. So if you think you’re interested, let me know!
Oh and I’m open to other suggestions too. Just noticed when I was searching for post-its, only a little over 3 pages result….? We need more people doodling! Draw people draw! Maybe could be a group on artworks done on notepads, napkins, random piece of paper, something along that line… what do you think?
My works are mainly illustrations based strongly on colours and lines to allure and express an idea. The subjects are often close to my heart and the forms are kept quite simple and quirky, with a love for the whimsical. I am forever fond of drawing people and trees as the human body is always intriguing, and the trees forgiving. I am not usually concern with perspective. Composition, colours, line works and the ability to experiment with new medium are a lot more exciting to me.
My cat’s name is Muffin. The little monster is often in my works.
It’s cold here in Wellington. Not the best weekend but a good one to catch up on some of my unfinished drawings. I suddenly feel a need to share my art, but I haven’t been very discipline. I try to quickly sketch down ideas, ideas that seem to be materializing less and less frequent lately. I wonder what’s happening… I wonder if I’ve lost it. Lately I seem to do more think than creating. Putting myself through this process of filtering through the bad ones and when I’ve decided to take some of my sketches to the canvas, I convince myself it’s probably not worth painting. This new and foreign thought process, I am beginning to think what I do at work is being brought through into my art. The tedious and rigourous design and architectural decisions have finally taken a toll on my art life…
Hi everyone! I usually do not offer canvas print options as I’m a bit skeptical about the lack of texture and all… But anyway, seeing there’s a 20% OFF till sunday, I’m going to be offering the following limited artworks available as CANVAS PRINTS! Yes I am…no I’m not kidding… yes only till Sunday… no I won’t change my mind… yes I will be forever grateful if you buy one… :)
