At the moment, life for me is writing lots of job applications. It’s good practice in writing about myself… it’s good practice in not getting frustrated when people don’t get in touch with you… it’s good practice in reminding myself just why I want to be a successful artist…. but it’s not a good practice in creativity!
So………… A year of creativity.
I’m going to create a piece of art every single day from my 23rd birthday to my 24th.
I want to bring more creativity into my life, and I think the best way to do that is to experiment with my craft a little bit everyday.
Follow my project on Facebook, as that is where I’ll be posting my art everyday.
All pieces in this Facebook album are for sale. Prices from £5-£35 with postage included. Just click on the individual photographs for more details.
I’m still working on my Ondine project, she’s just a little in the background as I try to re-build my momentum for her. I love her, she is my most exciting project, but sometimes she becomes a little overwhelming… and the anxiety that plagues me can’t always deal with that. Ondine, know I love you, but I just need to work on you slower than I intended.
At the moment, my lovely blog readers, I’ve mostly been focusing on the writing aspect, and the logistics…. so, I don’t have any pretty pictures to show you :( but, I will always keep you updated when I do!!
For now! here are some pretty pictures of some of my favourite #ArtADay pieces so far…
And be sure to give me a wee like over on Facebook to follow the rest of this project, along with all my other arty things :)
I wrote a post about Faith Galvan’s and Gemma Whitby’s commission a wee while back, and my next one has arrived in it’s new home safely…. so here is AFP Patreon’ Patrons Commission three! Sorry it’s taken me so long to post sweetie!
For those that need a wee reminder….. I’m a member of a completely wonderful facebook group, set up for the Amanda Palmer Patreon’ Patrons. It’s beautiful, and real, and the best community I’ve ever been a part of.
So full of love…… I wanted to do a thing.
I’m really excited about my current Zendoodles, so that was the thing I decided to do. Give away three commissions, to anyone who liked my picture. Oh, and while I’m here I’d really like to thank everyone who liked my page, and to everyone who liked the picture but didn’t win…. fret not! I’m planning on doing more of these giveaways in the future…. stay tuned!
This one is Brooke Mackay……. a colourful girl who is running with the deer!
Hope you like it sweetie.
Much slothy love.
Inspired by one of my original Thoughts…
This little Zendoodle is fighting your perceptions of societally constructed beauty…
What do you think of her?
Ooo and you might be interested to know I’ve started up my Thought For The Day posts again. I’m doing so from Instagram… and if you’re feeling wonderful I’d love it if you’d give me a wee like over there :) @InkedThoughtForTheDay
Thank you :)
Much feminist love.
Inspired by Neil Gaiman’s The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains

Neil… you’re hair is delightfully challenging to draw!!
What do you think?
It didn’t quite win, but this is my submission for the 2016 Edinburgh Comic Con poster competition.
I was a little sad it didn’t get in… but that was quickly brushed away when I realised I now have a sexy geeky piece of artwork to flaunt!!
What do you think of it? Who’s your favourite?
There is something deeply comical about vampires brushing their teeth…
So here is Adam and Eve, i.e. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton from Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive (which is, by the way, my favourite film ever. If you haven’t seen it, go now, go on shoo, go watch it!) enjoying a personal care moment….
I like to think that Eve would be all in to it, with Adam standing moodily by her side expressing a quiet disdain for this inane zombie activity.
Happy Halloween everybody!
Much spooky love.
Okay… I’m a little late in sharing, but it’s pretty awesome, so I’m going to share anyway!!
In June this year I participated in the glorious Oh Comely Stranger Swap Care Packages.
It was wonderful!
Here is the gift box that the lovely Kathleen sent me… isn’t it adorable!!
And this is the box I sent her.
Complete with mermaid tail drawing of course :)
Much Love my perfect stranger.
Will be doing this again next time it comes around!
