Stay tuned for a postcard painting give-away soon 😉
My life is all about fluffy bunnies at the moment. This little painting is for a nursery, for a baby yet to be born. Made with acrylic paint on a boxed canvas, this bunny will hopefully soothe the little one through the quite traumatising nappy changing process.
Furthermore, I visited this famous rabbit who has an entire square dedicated to him (her?) in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Nijntje (called Miffy abroad) was born in Utrecht to a clever illustrator man called Dick Bruna in 1955. Starring in more than 30 books, Nijntje has sold over 85 million copies to kiddies worldwide.
Sugar in tea is a sin, unless it’s Sugar the Pin-up Girl who is sweet enough!
I vaguely recall my mum having a tea set like this. This design is called Old English and it’s now a super expensive collector’s item. I have to admit that I broke a number of the cups while playing grownups in my earlier days. I was a careless child. Sorry, mum.
This picture is done as a present for the Tea in England blog which I like to read while drinking my morning cuppa! For all you arty types out there, check out the header artwork on this site. It’s very cute!
When a little boy puts on a knight’s costume, he becomes a knight. Those dragons really happen and the day needs saving. The earth’s future depends on it! It’s serious business.
One of my favourite games was dressing up too. When I slipped into that pink, sparkly dress and put on the plastic tiara, the gates to the kingdom far, far away really did open. They needed me to be queen! And I ruled them hard, really hard.
Today’s India ink and watercolour illustration has been done for Illustration Friday and the topic is… imagination!
