This is last week's Colour Collective illustration. The chosen colour was 'Deep Naples Ochre' which was so perfect for a lion! I'd been wanting to draw this maned lioness for awhile and I thought a vintage stamp would be the best tribute to such a gorgeous animal.
I've recently been re-watching the entirety of the X-Files (currently on season 8) before I get stuck into the brand new episodes! Scully is, of course, my favourite - she's just the best. Have you been watching the new series? I'm pretty excited about it!
This illustration is part of a little 'badge' series I'm currently doing. I have a couple more to share over the coming weeks but if you like them I could definitely extend this series and keep it going throughout the year. Let me know! I think they would look cool as embroidered badges or something, or maybe metal pins.
Here is last week's Colour Collective illustration. The chosen colour was 'Deep Lilac' which is lovely but I struggled to decide what to do with it. In the end, I went for a simple polar bear's face. She's called Mishka!
Following on from the Dala horses I made last year, I decided to jazz up the idea a little and ended up creating a Dala unicorn! I think Tara asked for a unicorn a little while ago so I hope this is okay!
This is the illustration I made for last week's Colour Collective! The chosen colour was 'Viridian' which was perfect for the forest scene I wanted to create. I imagine this curious deer is quite happy to trek through the landscape on her own, encountering lots of magical plants and flowers.
