Very Pheasant To Meet You...


My goodness, it's April already.  
I feel like I've fallen off the blogging train a little.  April is always a chaotic month for me - we have many birthdays & celebrations in our house this month, including my own - so it's hard to remain focused as family life takes over.

That said, it's the social media stuff that has suffered more as I have lots of ideas for illustrations brewing at the moment and have been enjoying spending some precious creative time at my desk.  

I think it's about time I started gathering some of the new work and sharing it here on my blog. 
These pieces have been shared over on my Instagram and Facebook pages, but I think it's nice to put everything together and showcase them here (if only for me to document my work as it progresses)...

Today's piece is a woodland creature inspired illustration featuring a badger and pheasant which I've named 'Very Pheasant To Meet You'.  This pair began as a little sharpie sketchbook doodle following a weekend walk on The Quantock Hills, just a few short miles from our house....

The colours are certainly inspired by the hues of the wild flowers in the nearby woods.

I've already added this new design to my Society 6 and Etsy shops, but have plans for this to become part of a new mini collection...

I hope to be back here soon to share more work in progress and inspirations.

Have a lovely week
Best wishes
