2010- A PLAN OF SORTS

Drawing to the end of the year- I got to thinking about what I want to do for 2010.
I always want to do MORE than I actually acheive, so I thought I’d make my plan here and see if it pans out as expected, or whether to expect the unexpected lol.…

No Need to Reply to this- Just a Little Personal Excercise and Organisation on my behalf :)))

1000 GIRLS IN 100 DAYS
Complete Project on time by 4th of February (YAY- Hopefully)
APRIL UPDATE Well I did it kind of- missed a couple of girls on my way and lost the momemtum to return. I’m waiting to see if the book happens and if so will dash back and make ammends LOL.

RETURN TO WONDERLAND
Start my Alice Book Project and work through Adventures in Wonderland from the beginning, with view to self published book at the end of 2010.
APRIL UPDATE Still to star

ON THE UP & UP :))

Hi Beautiful Bubble Peeps…

You know I’ve been a bit preoccupied and not to say a little stressed. Good news is that whatever horrid infection Jamie had, its clearing up now and he should be home from hospital in the next few days- it was worse that we thought to start with. Its great to see him off the drip and looking/feeling much better now.

The 1000 Girls project has kept me busy in the evenings, helped with the worry. I’m still on track, but lost my head start- So it really is a challenge now. Such is life :))

I’m catching up slowly on comments, so thank you so much for those and the favs :))
BIG THANKS TO EVERY GROUP WHO FEATURED MY WORK & ALSO I HAD A FEW TOP TEN CHALLENGE PLACEMENTS- ALWAYS ALWAYS APPRECIATED
Thanks also to my co-hosts in various groups, for picking up the load and b

Hope its not a case of things come in three’s lol !!!!
Touching lots of wood and missing you all- Hopefully I’ll get a catch up at the weekend.

1000 Girls in 100 Days and Other News

Well I have been drawing like crazy, preparing for what is probably my biggest art challenge yet. 1000 Girls in 100 Days is the creation of the wonderful Heriart and assisted by my talented friend Erica Rosario

The concept is 10 Artists post 1 new work every day for 100 days, thus making 1000 Girls in 100 days. I am so honoured to be part of this and can confirm that the 10 artists involved are just amazing. As well as bubblers Heri and Erica, we have Mimi Yoon (its going to be a feast of feminine wonder).

The postings start tommorrow and run through to the 4th of February 2010.
When I post a work to the blog, I will also post it here on bubble, with links back to the blog. I hope some of you will sign up to watch the project unfold. You can follow us here…..

NEWS, APLOGIES & BITS & BOBS :)))

Hi Bubble Friends…

Just a few words to let you know what I’m up to and why I might not be around so much.

I have found it a wee bit hard to keep up with everything lately, so I must apologise for things already slipping by me. Its not going to get much better soon I’m afraid.
I’ve not really mentioned it to many people but I have been signed off work for a few weeks. I go back on Wednesday, which will mean much busy-ness for me, as I catch up there.

I have also signed up for an exciting (but frankly TERRIFYING) project called 1000 Girls in 100 Days. The concept is that 10 artists post 1 drawing a day for 100 days (a mixture of group chosen topics and free topics). Its probably the biggest art challenge I’ve ever undertaken.
Right now I’m saving any new posts until it starts on the 28th of Oc

THANK YOU :)))))

IMAGE REMOVAL ERROR

Just to let everyone know that my Jimi images were recently investigated by RB, due to a copyright complaint from within the community.…

RB found that my work was 100 % my own and were happy to leave the
images on the site. However they have been removed in error and I am in correspondence to resolve this- hopefully they will be up again soon.

It is quite upsetting when your artistic integrity is called into question, particularly when you see so many direct photo references used to make up tees on this site. Whomever is doing the complaining obviously cant tell the difference.

Thanks to everyone who has supported my art here and recognises that I pride myself on creating original, unique work in my own style. You all say it often enough, so at times like these, I’m going to remember those

WOOOOOP AND MANY THANKS :))))

BUBBLERS WHO NEED TO GET A LIFE !!!!!

Sorry guys but this is the first time I’ve got really mad on this site.
I’ve met the most amazing people here, who are always mature and
respectful- I appreciate RB and all you guys, you know who you are.…

But let me say one thing- If your work gets rejected from a group please act like a adult and respect the hosts decisions I always do . People who argue over one piece of work are a bit sad in my opinion. Then to go on and slag the work in the group and question the rules is just really hard cheese.

Hosts have a hard enough job trying to make their groups how they want them. If you dont like it- open your own bloody group I say.
We really dont need this sort of crap in our personal bmails and I will report people who use this kind of “harrassment” to RB.

Sorry for my rant, just needed to ge

Tulip Spiral Kitty AECO
Wanna B Betty AECO

A SURREAL KIND OF DAY

Well today I had a day off to go to my uncle Sandy’s funeral. It was a nice service. I will miss his “off the cuff sense of humour”.
I then had to go to the Sleep Clinic and get a “appartus” to monitor my sleep, so tonight I will be wired up like a robot. This makes me feel a little strange.
Tommorrow my village has the start of their Gala Week and an impromto Art Exhibition will be on this weekend. I’ve put in 2 pics-
The Original of My Little Cup Cake and a framed print of Selkie along with a few unframed miniatures. I have no idea what to expect.

There’s nothing for it at times like these, but to draw- So I’ll love yas and leave yas and pick up the old pen. Hugggggggies xxxxxx
Have a Nice Weekend- Anita

WILDLIFE APPEAL

Dear Bubblers and Wildlife Lovers.
I just wanted to take a moment to pass on a message from Wendy Slee.
There is an appeal site here on bubble which mirrors the Phoenix-Appeal
and set up specifically to aid the silent victims of this tragedy-
The Bush Wildlife and Pets caught up in the disaster. I know we are not
hearing the full extent of this loss and I also know that many people on here
have been very concerned about the effect on the animals and their habitats
and homes.…

Here is the link to the Wildlife Appeal. You can help by making a purchase, however small and/or donating a work for them to sell. Bubblemail them and they will tell you how to submit a work.

Wildlife Appeal

Thank you to both Appeals for their fantastic work.
This is my donated artwork for the Wildlife Appeal

This is one of my most viewed works here at bubble and I really appreciate the attention and comments it recieves. VERY HAPPY xxxxxx

OK ITS ALL PEAR SHAPED AGAIN

Sorry Guys, but if you are wondering why I’m ignoring some of your works today, its because every other one I cant see. I click on the image and just a wee box with the tile comes up. DANG !! I take it I’m not the only one.
I HATE MISSING YOUR WORK- I’m so busy at work right now, I prob wont have time to play catch up either :(((((

THANK YOU !!

It seems like a short while ago I was doing cartwheels (in my mind at least) when I reached 10,000 views here on RB. At the weekend I’d almost reached 20,000 (a great milestone). I did not really notice until now that my art views have shot up well over that milestone and if I add T-Shirt views I’m nudging 30,000 views.…

  • So this is a great moment to give thanks to everyone who has viewed my work, given time to comment and spend their hard earned pennies on my art- I APPRECIATE every one of you and this wonderful site- THANK YOU*

February is not about me tho- Dont waste time commenting here- head over to the Phoenix-Appeal Page and purchase something (however small) to help aid the victims of the bush fires. Remember that RB are matching dollar for dollar on all sales just now to help the ca

VICTORIA PHOENIX APPEAL

This is my donated artwork to the appeal on a T-shirt.
I chose this one because it was symbolic of how I was feeling- we want the fire
to sleep.
If you like the Tee please purchase from the Phoenix Appeal Site Directly in order to raise funds, if you purchase it off my site the profit will not go there.
Link Below to the Phoenix Appeal Site

Please try and purchase something small from this site if you can- Many artists
have donated wonderful works in the hope of making a bit of difference.

Any pointers much appreciated- HUGS xx
