This illustration is suited for a gift card perhaps?Experimenting in Photoshop this morning I messed around with a little bee I sketched out last night while watching T.V. I decided to set a task of making little bugs out of a thimble shape. I ended up rounding out the bee shape. The next page in my sketch book I played around with stylised trees. I am trying to experiment with more simplistic, child-like illustrations.
I just missed the deadline for IF for "swarm" and this week it is warning. I have an idea for that theme but in the meantime all I will say is that if I have any more interruptions this week there will be a big WARNING sign on my studio door "DO NOT ENTER ". I have had sick kids home this week and lost a great deal of working time through computer troubles. I am looking forward to more studio time next week. I am off to visit a children’s exhibition at the Maroondah Gallery this afternoon and really looking forward to that.
All has not been lost as I have managed to clean up a lot on my computer. My emails were the big one. I have filed the lot now and that was no small task. I also have started organising my mailing lists properly and sorting my contact files better. I am trying to learn Access so I can utilise that program as I know it will help my business. In the meantime I am using Excel for a lot of my business notes etc.
