Illustration Friday: FORWARD

This is a sketch I eventually worked up into a birthday card a few weeks ago for work. It's a centre-forward soccer bear being whistled at by the mouse referee. Not sure why he's been yellow carded! Most of the work I do during the day are cute characters and I love my job so much! At the moment I'm working on cute Christmas designs.

More Crewel Embroidery

Here is my latest hand stitched crewel work with my original sketch so you can see my starting point. I basted some soluble fabric onto the material, with my sketch traced on in washable fabric marker. It took flippin' ages to finish!

Illustration Friday: GROUNDED

I have never been grounded, but if I had grades like this whilst I was at school I think my parents would have grounded me. This little digital sketch took me about 45 minutes to do and hopefully Illustration Friday will help me throughout the new year to keep me doodling and updating my blog.
