other recent stuff!

My camera really enjoys pixellating black lines; plus the lack of natural light in a dimly lit end terrace in the winter doesn't make for great photos. But anyway.

This is the next in the series of owls i did/am doing, dedicated to people I know and (in most cases) love.

recent things

The shading on the face hasn't scanned too well, but you'll mostly have to take my word for that.

I won't be updating much in the next few weeks. The only drawing I can fit in around work will be presents for people so i can't let their nosy faces see it. Anyway I'm pretty sure my sister doesn't read this, so here is an owl I drew for her. Glamorous.

It took two of us and this was still the best picture we could get.

This goes with the previous two posts.

Sounds odd, but this sort of doesn't look like I did it. But i saw me do it so I'm pretty sure i did. Anyway, it's a preta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preta).

'yes' is my favourite answer

I think most of everything I've done recently has been notes to myself - resolutions, reminders. This is no different.

talismen, a prayer for flight and a wish for better, now.

For halloween, I drew a three-headed totem bat type thing. You might just have to take my word for it though.

Some people think Raccoon boxing is barbaric, but all Pablo knows is that he has to put food on the table.

Note to my twenty five year old self.

The combination of camera flash, gold paint, it being night time and my general cack-handedness means I can't get a decent photo of this. So two bad photos should make up for that.

It's a pre-emptive new years resolution. gouache, acrylic, ink and marker on board.

Upward over the mountain

Bird for my mother

girl's best friend

Tortoises are nature's best idea ever. They're the best animals of all. This one is a leopard tortoise.

This is a guinea pig. They are not one of nature's better ideas, but it was a present for a friend who likes them more than she likes people. Each to their own.

Hidden in the Lion's Mane

The words belong to Sam Beam, the rest belongs to my lack of a social life.

terrible visual pun.

I've been doing some automatic drawing and turning it into paintings (I have a lot of time on my hands) - it sems to be serving as a sort of diary I guess. The previous tooth painting was one of these, this is a detail from another. Collaged onto shoes. I have no idea why. Normal service of animals in hats will resume shortly.

fever dream

gouache, acrylic, marker pen on board. Stupid amounts of camera glare courtesy of my lovely housemate and his camera.

i like birds

toucan and parrot painting, gouache, acrylic and ink on board. Not a great photo but when did I say I was a photographer?

Book worm owl

It's a sort of a...well, it's a...it's an owl who is a bookworm who is a snake, obviously.

Place orders now for Christmas cards! All animals in hats all the time - from dogs and cats to turkeys and robins! 10 original designs on high quality card with envelopes. Hand folded by me and anyone else I can enlist to do my dirty work! Sneak peaks of designs to come, because Christmas can never come too early, right?

Painting Post!

And now for something sort of a little bit maybe different! The first in what is sure to be an exciting and infrequent series of Paintings Small Enough To Scan!
It's called 'Requiem to the Common Lightbulb' (gouache and acrylic on board, 10 by 12 inches or so, at a guess, ever the perfectionist me) and marks the death of the humble, non-energy saving bulbs. Remember them this way.

More ladies.

Now, the concept here was meant to be a witch who had won a beauty contest. I couldn't pinpoint exactly when it became an unflattering portrait of Sarah Jessica Parker.
(not the best scan I'm afraid, but you get the gist).

There's no celebrities to be found below, just a sneering fortune teller.

Because 'Pealingo' doesn't have quite the same ring. Half peacock, half flamingo.

I lied about 'new stuff'. Stupid not having a scanner. But then, everything is new if I haven't posted it. So, in that spirit, a rather old drawing. In memory of my cursed wisdom tooth. May God rest it's soul.

Detective Walrus

I thought I'd already posted this! Here, before brand new drawings later this week, have my favourite drawing (possibly) ever (until something else amuses me as much).

Giraffe in a teapot!

But what is it doing in there?

Sad dog

Hideous dog getting rained on. I think this says it all.

Cat in a wig

Cat in a wig: it's a cat in a wig.

First post!!!!!!!!!!


I am Feef, this blog is a showcase for my drawings, sketches, cartoons and paintings (sort of. It's mostly going to be drawings until I figure out how to get a decent photo of a painting).

(above, Flopsy wants to reach out and grab you; pencil, ink, watercolours. Below, Pig in a portrait; same materials. Actually, almost everything that will ever appear here will be in those materials so I won't mention it again).
