Chinese Spike doll no 1

Chinese Spike doll no 1

What a lovely lazy Sunday afternoon.   Not doing much other than sitting around drinking cups of tea/coffee, chatting and eating yummy home made cookies.  It ended with some extra work on a fun little drawing/painting.  I started this a few nights ago..  I did see a weird doll that gave me idea’s to create the inital spikey doll… it ended up quite different from the original though.. and I’m pleased with the results.

Mind you, you can see I’m watching way too many horror movies of late!    Really loving “The Walking Dead” a groovy zombie apocalyptic world – where you are always looking over your shoulder for groups of zombies running after you to eatcha up!  (eeek and yay!)  And also the American Horror Story, which is even creepier….a dysfunctional family moves into a murder riddled house, with it’s dead ghostly AND mischievious occupants, having alot of fun tormenting their new owners.  Ahh it’s all good fun really right?!

Chinese Spike Doll Card no 1.

The creepy effects and frame on this was created with Lo-Fi – a very funky little program I’ve been having fun with too.

Sketchbook Project 2012


I’ve been rather naughty and leaving this all to the last minute.  It needs to be returned and postmarked by January 31, 2012  – all the way over in New York!  And I havent done really much at all… tisk tisk!  (I did receive the book way back in April!)  The theme I’ve chosen for my book is “Fill me with Stories”.

So every spare moment now I’m drawing into this journal.  I guess I should of kept loads of time free for this, putting some really good pieces down, but it might be a bit of a rush now.

Here’s today’s effort and a couple of others……  *cracks knuckles* – better get moving on it fast though!!
