Weasel and Hare sketches

I've been really loving drawing countryside animals at the moment, as you may have noticed. I think I might need to pop the Animals of Farthing Wood on to help my obsession.

little pip and the extinct zoo

So this is a personal project of mine that i've been working on for a while now...
It's based on little pip, as a young palentology obsessed girl, who can see the ghosts of extinct animals. She builds them an imaginary zoo and goes on adventures with them.
Ever since illustrating I am Jake last summer I have been searching for a similar project to sink my teeth into, so I did this first finished painting in a children's book style, and i'm hoping to develop the story further - for now I am just loving drawing it.

Let me know what you think guys!

Brandon, the cat

Here's another wee cat that i've drawn. For some reason whenever I hit artistic block, I just have to draw cats until I get through it. I hope you like him!

(Oh and my boyfriend named him Brandon. It's different, but I like it)

Snow shoes - long strides

For mother's day I have drawn my mum a pair of snow shoes! Not very seasonal, but she's currently writing a play involving arctic explorers and lots and lot's of snoes shoes. Because I get to go home so rarely, I always like to make something for my mum.

On second thoughts the she may be sick of they sight of those shoes...hmm...
