Foxy Indiana!

I'm off to sunny, sunny (hopefully) France!

Just drawn this to use as my autoresponder- so you'll be seeing this if you email tomorrow as I'm up and away! Back at my desk on June 2nd, have a lovely half term everyone!

In the holiday spirit

Despite the Scottish weather I'm starting to feel summery as I pack for my holiday. I'm not actually going to Spain this time but it's close enough.

Fox on a bicycle

Playing with a fox character I created a while ago that I've rediscovered!

I've been reading the BBC News website again

And this one caught my eye. Apparently the lady is question had the knitting patterns for various Dr Who characters online.

Using the texture as a background

British Beach Scene

To celebrate the flood of Brits who headed for the coast on the weekend. Edinburgh was sat under its own personal cloud bank so we saw the sunshine for about five minutes.

Playing with texture

I wanted to make this look like an old postcard and I think I acheived the effect I was after. I then got a bit excited and tried it out on a piece I did last week.

I think it looks quite interesting and might mess around with this a bit more. In other news- my shiny new PC has arrived and is sitting in its box waiting for me to find the time to tranfer everything over and install various bits of software.

Encounters with bees

Whenever I got scared of buzzing bees in my Grandad's garden he'd say "don't worry, they are only sniffing". This has stayed with me to this day and when a bee comes up close I just stand still and wait for them to sniff me and leave!

Missing People

I was looking at the new missing people website and found it incredibly sad that so many people could be unaccounted for and so many are waiting for any word on their loved ones. All of those names and all of those pictures.
