Have I said before that every week I think I am going to fail and not complete an illustration? Probably. Well, surprise, surprise I felt like that again this week. It’s not always down to the lack of time. Many times I wrack my brain for an idea for the week’s theme and feel completely stumped. But I can breath a sigh of relief as it seems I always manage something in the end regardless of the outcome. So here are April’s illustrations:

Week 14: Camping

Gelli printing, pastels, posca pens

I hadn’t used pastels for years so it was good to get them out again.

Week 14- Camping

Week 15: Ocean

Gelli printing, copic markers

Working with a gelli print plate always has an element of surprise which is part of the joy of working with this medium.

Week 16: Mirror

Copic markers, fineliner pens

I am enjoying developing my skills and drawing animal characters and felt quite pleased with this little ducky.

Week 16- Mirror

Week 17: Collector

Copic markers

I collect many things as a family historian, teacher, mother, illustrator and finally writer. I am hoping soon I will be collecting acceptance’s from publishers rather than rejections. 🙂
