Boom! Anglerfish Headdress. I am pretty happy this managed to get out of my head and into a physical form. I will take a proper photo of it at some point. #wigglewiggleflashflash #anglerfish #headdress #copperwire #LEDs #art #craft #victory #festivalready #handmade #shiny #seacreature #fromthedepths #superpixels #stillwasntsurewhatiwasdoing #osmialumina

I was somewhat horrified yesterday after hearing one of the people in my office proclaiming how global warming doesn't bother her, how it doesn't keep her (or anyone?) up at night - having a house and a job does. How insufferably selfish and ignorant of her... Then again the same woman can be heard loudly complaining that emails are awful because people reply to her whilst she's out of the office. People make me despair sometimes. Conversely I like reusing packaging as "canvasses" for my art, and try to #recycle and #reuse as much as I can. . Crispbreads vs two little firecrests, a work in progress.. I'm sure they would have loved the seedy crispbreads nearly as much as me, but those are long gone. . #peoplearefrustrating #whysoselfish #everylittlebitcounts #watercolours #quicksketches #painting #recycling #wip #unfinished #creative #doodle #seeds #crispbreads #tastysnacks #bird #smallbird #firecrest #cute #somanyhashtags #illustration #art #artist #osmialumina #artistsoninstagram #originalart #artistsofinstagram

Fabric paint based jumper customising adventures. Many thanks to the sea cucumber for hunting high and low across the market for white fabric paint because mine had turned into a squidgy solid lump of unhelpful.

Plastecine Porcine: meet Malcolm and Biscuit. Concombre de-la-mer @falseidentitydub and I went to a little @aardmananimations workshop, where a super dude named George guided a bunch of fellow enthusiastic humans through making our own little boars based on Hognob from #EarlyMan.
Entirely unfamiliar medium, lots of fun.
Followed by seeing the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra performing a variety of Dvorak pieces that were goosepimple-level amazing.
What a Saturday.

After a wonderful evening with brilliant humans.. a free bellydancing class, giggles, wiggles and chatting away the time. I arrive home and decide that instead of sleeping I should continue the fabric painting I was doing before I left.

Himalayan Snowcock
(acrylic speedpaint)
.
When I was hunting high and low across the internet for birds with brilliantly euphemistic names to put on my kitchen birdwall, I discovered the Himalayan Snowcock. It is a partridge-like bird that lives high in the mountains (no out-of-season pear tree references here). It is also described as having a chestnut moustachial stripe (hipster or Victorian gentleman?), plus it's eggs are longer and more pointed than the standard bird egg... that comes to mind in order to prevent them rolling off ledges to their doom!

Cockerels, with their wiggly mohawks and wobbly jowels look a tiny bit like bearded feathered punks (to me). Here's PunkCock sporting his boss denim sleeveless jacket with tiny studs and anarchist patch, strutting his stuff left right and centre, bobbing his little head in synch.
Plus a pair of razor eyes. They have a story, but today the limelight is on PunkCock.
Also this is yesterday's to do list, which is considerably shorter than recent lists after a cathartic life sorting session over the weekend.

Late December was particularly grey for me; I felt like jetsam being tossed across stormy seas beneath skies heavy with clouds and bitter wintery darkness.
On christmas eve, I sat down and decided to do some art. In light of my complete lack of inspiration at the time, I went for: practice of drawing fluffy cute real things. So here are some of the resulting foxes.

Although I find the New Year to be a rather arbitrary thing, it is good to set aside time to take stock of the past and try to figure out ways to learn from it to make the future better..
.
So here's a little #selfportrait of me looking positively to the future. I need to remember; instead of getting stuck on the things that make me unhappy, I should work on the things I can change, and try to make peace with that which I cannot.
.
Here's to 365 more days of adventure under t...he 2018 banner.

Space pixies - non pico.
Video misses most of the details of the painting, but successfully captures the sparkle and a bit of the silver details. Will upload a proper photo at some point.

Tiny snow pixie sketches.
Inspired at least in part by a beautiful birthday resolution; after over 10 years of wondering - the nameless classical music that haunts my head we figured to be Waltz of the Snowflakes from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker.. and then I danced victoriously around in ecstatic satisfaction as snow fell gently from the Sheffield skies.

=Pigs in Blankets=
.
As the days get shorter, and the temperature plummets, blanket pigs become an ever more frequent sighting. Here are three cozy-snouts having a lovely snuggle in traditional winterpig style.
.
Hobbies:snacking, snuggling, snaffling...
Natural habitat:blanket kingdom
Nemesis:cold draughts, spilt drinks, spikey things and crumbs
Special Power:warmth

Today.
I try to keep positive, but its also healthy to recognise the onslaught of frustrating things, dislike them, feel the understandable consequential shit feels.. then gather the brainsoup back up, formulate a plan, put on some armour and keep on going.

=ButterPig=
.
[I drew Butterpig during the height of summer as I sat being gently baked by the gassy skyball we call the sun, on an emerald lawn in Durham for my wonderful sister's birthday celebrations. Any resemblance between Butterpig and a baked potato is entirely coincidental (and deeply offensive, so don't!)]
.
Butterpig is an escape artist of great skills and daring. No rope too tight, no door too small, no bars can contain the true awesomeness of the Butterpig. Her...e there and everywhere – sneaking out of awkward social situations with the bare minimum of social lubricant.
.
Favourite food: butter
Hobbies: wild camping, escapology, ropework
Natural habitat: anywhere under the clear blue skies
Nemesis: the crumbs that hide inside the toaster
