A HAPPY HOLIDAY

This will probably be my last journal entry for 2010. I’m enjoying my little
break too much and still have a bit to get organised for the holidays. It’s
been a bit quiet round these parts, so I guess you are all on the same boat.

Thank you for all your comments, encouragements & support this year. I feel very lucky
to have found such a wonderful community and wealth of talent & inspiration.

Wishing you all a very happy holiday and all my very best wishes for a creative, happy & healthy 2011- Hope all your dreams come true

Sorry I’ve not been around too much- Seem to be busy of late and not artistically (which has been bothersome).

Look forward to catching up with your art soon- In the meantime,happy creating & hugs xxx

Stickers Sales & A Whole New World :))

Welcome to the Brave New World of OMG CHANGED Red Bubble !!
I just figured out where my journal post button was HURRAH !!
Well I’m still getting used to it and knowing me that will take a while. Even I can see there’s some sparkling gems in this format, but there are a few things I’m not getting at all (i.e. I thought they worked, certainly looked, better before). Great for buyers I think, tentatively.…

I’ve decided to give it a go before getting too heat up (now I’ve calmed down- springing major change near my bedtime is never going to go down well), after all I remember being thrown last time there was change- but I grew to LOVE it all the same.
I did give my constructive thoughts through the official Feedback Page, which I felt was the right thing to do and I must admit Mr Baxters “reply”

STICK EM UP :)))

A Big Big Thank you to the person who bought 3 of my stickers today :)))…

I love that our T-shirt Designs are now available on high quality vinyl stickers. Apart from having a few stuck on the side of my microwave I had to think what else you could use the stickers for. Since they are so durable a few things sprung to mind-

Decorating a guitar or its case (my son is playing loudly in the next room)

Alternative to Fridge Magnets (collect your fav art for a mini gallery on your fridge)

Jazzing up your lunchbox or flask

Putting your personal stamp on your bike, car etc (apparently they endure this quite well, although after a few years they might disintegrate)

My personal favourite- Making a matching gift tag for your T-Shirt purchases- I will be doing this at Christmas to make my gifts look

SALES & NEWSY STUFF & INSTELLAR ELEPHANTS :)) x

Most excitingly I have been accepted for The Deeside Artists Show which (as a one off) is exhibiting at one of the best Galleries around here. I plan to work on 2 larger more

SUPERHEROES CHILDREN'S ALPHABET

The Superheroes Children’s Alphabet Project 2010

Once upon a time during 2010 a merry bunch of artists gathered from around the globe.
They found a happy place to stay where artists could play, this place was at the headquarters
of The International Superheroes of Drawing, Illustration & World Domination

The merry band of artists wanted to spread the word and a little love and happiness in the only way they knew how- by drawing. They wanted to encourage more people to draw and they wanted them to start young. Soon a great mission quest was born…….

To create an Alphabet which could be enjoyed by Children and the Young at Heart.

Please enjoy our Superheroes Alphabet- 26 Letters & 12 Numbers- created by 38 Artists

Now the quest is complete, the artists will be sharpening pencils and waiting fo

A Road Trip, Axl Rose & Some Sales :))

I’m back :))))
Just had a mad 3 days away from the computer which I thought I might document as it all seems a bit surreal now hehe…

Part One
My brother has a spare ticket to see Guns n Roses in Dublin, Ireland.
I’m supposed to be on bed rest and gradual excercise programme, but in typical
impulsive fashion I agree to go with him (keeping fingers crossed I will manage and my GP wont find out)
My passpost has just expired, so we dont have luxury of flying and plan elaborate road trip to Stranear to get the ferry to Belfast and drive down through the open border to Dublin.

Part Two
The sat nav goes mental and sends us 2 hours off course on some coastal route. We realise we will miss the ferry at 12pm and phone to book on the next ferry at 4.30pm. Thinking we have plenty time we stop for coffee and

Sleeping Cats & Interstellar Elephants

I’d like to thank the Mystery Buyer who got an Interstellar Elephant today. This little fellow seems quite popular, thanks for the great response to him. I’m planning some more Space Age Critters soon :))…

I also wound up a two day group exhibition today. Met some really nice people and some decidedly elitist artists (you can just tell lol). All in all it was a great show and I hope to do it next year again.

Sold out on my cards- which I think is a great testimony to the quality of the new Redbubble Cards and pricing structure (I like that they come in individual wraps).
These were the 3 designs I submitted-

I dont know what to expect but it should be a good day out- There’s a ceiligh afterwards, rally racing and pop star Sandi Thom is performing (sounds like a right mixed bag). I’m running low on smaller framed works, so over the next week expect me to be frantically drawing and uploading “wee ones”

WARNING: BIG JOURNAL

LOL !!!
Thought I’d keep the Journal Junkies Group Happy and its been a while since I wrote with what I’ve been up to :))…

A few of your know my health has not been great of late and I think there may be some big life changes coming for me. I stand on the edge right now, terrified to leap but also feeling more possitive about the new possibilities that may come. I have a lot to sort out in my life due to this, so may not be around so much- but redubble is my constant, so I’m sure I’ll be here more often than not (I’m trying hard to limit myself to a couple of days a week tho hehe)

SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR……….

Thank you to everyone who has faved my work and left lovely comments over the last few weeks- I will get round to replying to them all and appreciate it so much.

Our Kids Too- Art Auction

I just attented my first Art Auction today for the Our Kids Too Charity. It was exciting stuff, wonderful to see the big names go for big prices and such a good turn out.

I was lucky enough to sell all my submissions bar one in the silent auction. There was even a bidding war between 2 people for my Alice prints, it was so funny seeing them going back and forth trying to outbid each other (such a boost too).

Big thanks to Beverly Stewart and Debbie O’Neill for organising the event, which provides play/ leisure equipment and space for children with additional support needs.

Hi Bubbler Buddies
Still running about like a mad person at the mo- So soz for all the sporadic comments, missing stuff, non replies and general disorganisation. Seems to be my theme for this year lol.…

Was soooooo excited about a couple of things or three, I just had to share …..

Firstly I got a Thank You from Redbubble in Nat’s Community News Page. Completely stoked !! and honoured, humbled etc. I love this site, so anything I get involved in, is just a bonus. I must thank all my co-hosts- I could never co-host so many groups, if it wasnt for them- their support and experience (generally I’m just along for the ride).

HAPPY DANCING :))))

Two amazing surprises today :))
I sold a calendar of BEAUTIFUL ASIA , a collection of my Contemporary Asian Inspired works. I am soooo surprised that someone would want to buy a Calendar at the end of March, but I must admit I have used 2 of my calendars to split down and frame up as prints (the RB quality is so good)- So I guess its a lovely (and inexpensive way) to get a little collection of good sized prints.
Thank you so much Mystery Buyer

I just sold a Tee of my APHRODITE design too
Thank you Mystery Buyer- for a Happy Dancing Day xx

Thank you to the Groups who have featured my work this week also. I’m a little short on time these today, but will thank you all personally soon.

Redbubbles Inspirational Interview

:Here’s my contribution….…

What’s your favourite artistic tool or piece of equipment (past, present or dream)?

I LOVE my fineliner ink pens most of all.

Which work are you most proud of and why?

I was always most proud of “Mad Hatters Tea Party”. It was never perfect, but it felt like a big accomplishment. It hung around my house for abut 10 years, never attracting much attention- until I loaded it here- and now its my most popular work. The original was purchased and went on its way to a new home. It was a little magic moment which boosted my confidence after many years in the drawing wilderness.

Which artwork by a fellow RB artist do you secretly wish you’d created and why?

Geeeee Are you kidding- so many masterpieces to choose from. The portrait for me is
ROUBLE RUST -DISINTEGRATE. Its

Thank You & Updates

Hi Bubblicious Peeps
I’ve been a little quiet lately. The good news is I’m working on a bigger, detailed piece which I should have finished in a few days. Its actually for the Bubblers Portrait Challenge. Totally immersed in that and really happy to be back to my details.…

I am terribly behind in my comments and activity feed. So thank you for your comments and well wishes. I look forward to a free day when I can really catch up some.

2 Significant events for me this week- My wee boy turned 18 and I discovered I need reading glasses (or rather my first pair of varifocals OMG)- I have do idea if this will affect my art, but I’m sure it will only be clearer, when I get said glasses.
So in a day of feeling remarkably old (er), I oddly feel so young still- cant be bad :))

Had an amazing amount o

1000 Girls in 100 Days (My One Hundred)

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

No need to comment etc. I’m just making a journal record for fun of my 100 girls, so I can look back and think phew, I finished. I did pretty much 100 in 100 days, I posted a handful of old ones, when the going got too much (it was supposed to be fun after all) and my last few free topics are crops, colours and general jiggery pokery (bit of a cheat but also preserving my sanity). A few were too of the wall for my gallery here, but I hope to eventually post the thumbnails of all here, with any disclosures :)) on said jiggery pokery too.

I’M FREEEEEEEEEEEE- YIPEE

Girl 39- Butterfly Magic- An Exquisite Corpse Collab with Barbara Glatzeder- Thanks for sharing the work on that one hon xoxox

The Finish Line is in Sight :))))

Thank you to all my dear bubbler friends for keeping me motivated during the 1000 Girls in 100 Days Project. We finish on the 4th of February (just 4 short days) and I’m on drawing number 80, so will be going like mad to complete the last 20 in my evenings But I actually think I can DO IT :D
What have I learnt ??
Hmmm LOTS- Self Disipline, The joy of First Impressions (when they work), Stress Management lol, Trying new Ideas and New Styles on occasion, The happiness of drawing for drawing’s sake, That I miss doing detail, That I miss doing Bigger works, Hopefully to become a more fully rounded artist and continue to challenge myself.
Thank you to all of the artists involved- Particulary Heriart and Erica Rosario- for a wonderful oppertunity.
Would I do it again ?? Most probably not. Once is …

VALENTINE'S BONANZA

I was inspired by Nats Community Post to dig out some of my designs, which might be cool for valentines. Not the most romantic person on earth and being in a 20 year relationship, you tend to forget these things lol. Me and my dearest will no doubt be sharing a bottle and watching some wonderfully romantic film (such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre lol).…

Anyway hows about this lot and maybe you have valentines designs you want to promote too (I guess nows the time).
