A Father's Day card for my father-in-law! I really like this design. There is a little collie in the rocket as they have had collies for a long time! And he likes space games! . . . #copic #copicmarkersketch #space #galaxy #rocket #collie #dog #animalart #animalillustration #illustration #illustrationoftheday #fathersday #card #handmade #greetingcards #art #drawing #markers #scifi #colliesofinstagram #flying #fun #cute #smidgeartcafe #art #traditionalart #copics #design
A little sketch I did as prep for Mermay. I've been prepping myself an art studio of sorts so I am pretty tired but excited to break in the new creative area! . . . #art #mermay #sketching #sketch #sketchbook #illustration #illustrationoftheday #fish #mermaid #fantasycreature #myth #seacreature #ponytail #drawing #doodle #doodleoftheday #cute #chibi #model #pose #smidgeartcafe #traditional #ink #pen #pencil
And that's that! The end of Mermay. I learned a bit about what I like and do not like in doing art. Did you learn anything from this passed month? June is hopefully going to bring much more art and improvement! . . . #mermay #mermay2018 #mermaid #thinking #bored #rock #watercolorpainting #watercolourart #watercolour #watercolor #purplehair #purple #clouds #fin #chibi #art #traditionalart #illustration #illustrationoftheday #illustrationdaily #drawingoftheday #cute #sky #challenge #smidgeartcafe
Thank you all so much for following along with this Mermay comic! I've finished a little early but I hope you enjoyed it! There is still room for a few mermaids before the end of the month! . . . #art #mermay #mermay2018 #comic #story #thankyou #grateful #clam #end #crowd #pearl #illustration #watercolorpainting #watercolourart #watercolor #watercolour #painting #drawingoftheday #ocean #scene #background #traditionalart #illustrationoftheday #illustrationdaily #dailyillustration #daily #smidgeartcafe #artwork
And so The Great Clam opens to reveal the biggest rainbow pearl anyone has ever seen! Once removed (by eight merpeople!) the pearl resides atop the town hall as a beacon to tourists evermore! . . . #art #mermay #mermay2018 #rainbow #pearl #story #comic #watercolorpainting #watercolour #watercolor #watercolourart #painting #clam #sealife #animalart #animalillustration #illustration #illustrationoftheday #drawingoftheday #drawing #ink #illustrationdaily #dailyillustration #smidgeartcafe #traditional #traditionalart
I have been rereading the Harry Potter books over the last year or so but recently I have been reading more often! I'm on The Order of the Pheonix at the moment!

Today I have been attempting to make trains out of coffee stirrers and glue. I have managed to make three blocks that tomorrow will be carved! And I made a lot of mess! Who would have though glue was sticky?! . . . #art #glue #hobby #wood #woodworking #train #cute #chibi #chibicharacter #toymaking #comic #webcomic #comics #ootd #purple #sketchbook #illustration #sketch #illustrationoftheday #inking #handmade #traditionalart #funny #excitement #drawingoftheday #dailydrawing #relatable #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe
I started feeling dizzy and sick earlier this evening, luckily I managed to doodle this before it got too bad. But now I'm going to have a very early night and hope that it passes! . . . #art #dizzy #lightheaded #doodle #chibi #cartoon #webcomic #comic #illustration #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #drawingoftheday #drawing #doodleoftheday #stars #spinning #cute #dailydrawing #dailylife #daily #familylife #funny #relatable #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe #spiral #ink
Today John went and grabbed his fishing stuff from his mum and dad's house. He's gonna head fishing with my dad on Monday. He hasn't been fishing in a long while! . . . #art #fishing #fishinggear #curlyhair #ginger #cute #chibi #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe #webcomic #comic #hobby #fun #mermay #lifting #carrying #comics #webcomics #pen #sketch #sketchbook #gear #supplies #traditionalart #fishingrod #dailydrawing #daily #life #illustrationoftheday #illustrationdaily
After trying needle felting for a bit I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that it's not a hobby I want to continue with. I feel a bit silly admitting that but I wasn't having fun and it was going to be an expensive hobby to keep going and I couldn't get decent quality starting supplies even though they were expensive. I feel stupid having spent money buying a range of things and not using much of it. But I think it would be worse to carry on when I'm not enjoying it. John thinks his mum might like to try needle felting so maybe it wont be a total loss. I'm thinking I might try journalling/bullet journalling. . . . #webcomic #comics #needlefelting #hobby #failure #embarrassed #ashamed #enjoyment #sketch #chibi #cute #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe #monster #illustration #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #drawingoftheday #sad #comic #relatable #traditionalart #sketchbook #dailylife #learning
I spent time sorting buttons by colour and size today. It was really soothing and fun. I'm thinking of using them as wheels for trains. But we shall see! Also! So close to 100 followers! (Thank you all so much!)

On the outskirts of Pearl Hills a lost noble on his way to the Capital consults his map with his companions. Will he find his way?

A moment from our walk yesterday. As mentioned John walked off on to the beach, becoming slowed down by the mud and sand at times. Dad tried to get a picture but John was always quick to free himself! . . . #art #walk #beach #comic #webcomic #comics #webcomics #dad #walkingonthebeach #sunny #summer #chibi #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe #family #illustration #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #sketch #sketchbook #ink #brushpen #inking #life #dailylife #exercise #hike #walking #drawingoftheday #drawing

A little late due to technical difficulties but here is Day Three of Mermay. Here we have a couple of mermaids getting Chubs, the sea slug, ready for the Great Slug Race. Which is held every year. Do you think Chubs will win? . . . #mermay2018 #mermay #mermaid #cheerleader #seaslug #painting #illustration #drawing #ocean #cute #chibi #chibicharacter #encouragement #fun #race #comic #story #smidgeartcafe #fish #animalart #cuteanimals #training #slug #sea #watercolour #watercolor #watercolorpainting #webcomic
Instagram just would not work for me last night so I'm late posting! Urgs. But I have hopefully fixed the issue!

Happy May! (Where is this year going?!) It's also Mermay so I will be drawing us as merpeeps throughout the month! John has taken to placing his head on my back as we sleep, it's really comforting in an odd way! P.S Over on @smidgeartcafe I'm doing a month long comic about a Mer village so give it a peep! . . . #art #comic #mermay #mermay2018 #mermaid #merman #curlyhair #ginger #sleeping #fish #comics #webcomic #webcomics #watercolour #watercolor #painting #purple #green #orange #yellow #smidgeartcafe #cute #chibi #chibicharacter #resting #tail #illustration #illustrationdaily #drawing #drawingoftheday
Welcome to the bottom of the ocean where merpeople dwell. This is the small village of Pearl Hills, where over the course of May we will get to know some of it's inhabitants.

I was moving things again! This time John was around and keen for a change too! So we have a new living room arrangement, which actually is a lot better. I'm also attempting to grow my hair so it's a bit shaggy at the moment! . . . . #art #comic #comics #webcomics #webcomic #moving #furniture #chibi #cute #watercolour #watercolor #watercolorpainting #painting #drawingoftheday #drawing #illustration #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #ginger #gingerhair #curlyhair #traditional #dailylife #rearrange #lifting #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe
A little Outfit of the Day as this is one of my favourites! The T-Shirt has a Junimo from the game Stardew Valley on it. Thank you all so much for the positivity on my last post, it is so heartwarming!

This is another painting I sketched straight on to the paper. I really love doing hair like this! I think John's might end up this way if he keeps growing it 😄 . . . . #art #ginger #gingerhair #curlyhair #yellow #tights #stripes #cute #chibi #blushies #yellowdress #sundress #dress #outfit #fashion #fashionart #watercolour #watercolor #painting #roses #illustration #illustrationoftheday #dailydrawing #drawingoftheday #sketch #ink #smidgeartcafe #drawing
Cows are so cute! This is just a simple doodle, testing out my limits. I sketched it straight on to the watercolour paper without a plan.

Sooo I have been struggling a lot with my art the past few weeks. I feel disheartened with my progress and skills and completely unsure about my direction and what I want out of my work. My process for comics is too long and I'm not happy with the way they are going. So I'm gonna take a couple of days off and have a good think about how I want to proceed! I hope that you will stick with me through this transitional period. I promise it will lead to a better result! #webcomic #webcomics #mentalhealth #sketches #wip #artblock #existentialcrisis #art #break #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #pencilsketch
We have a cute little piggy bank where we have saved up money for John's driving. Luckily, it doesn't need to be smashed to get the money out!

Introducing the best spymasters around! On Mother's Day me and my niece Ellie were team captains in a game of Codenames. We played it with my mum and sister. It is a really great game and we had tons of fun!

I really wanted to try the Daniel Smith watercolours so I got the dot cards. (They are sheets of cards with blobs of the watercolour on.) And I'm in love with them. I've only swatched two pages of the colours (there are four), I have to wait until I cute more comic panels. But eventually I'll be switching to Daniel Smith when I can afford to! #danielsmithwatercolors #danielsmith #swatching #watercolours #watercolor #watercolors #webcomic #webcomics #comics #painting #watercolourpainting #watercolorpainting #illustration #daily #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #dailyart #dailylife #art #testing #colour #color #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #dotcard
After failing with Majora's Mask I had a go with the Brain Training. I hadn't done it in years and good lord I'm stupid now! Everything was tough and I get worse each day!

I've been struggling with art over the last few weeks. It's not art block but a losing of skills and abilities that I had a few months ago.

It's British Pie Week! I do love a good pie. I think steak and ale is my favourite!

A celebration of people. May you be judged by who you are, what you accomplish and how you treat others rather than the labels that others places upon you. Be that gender, sexuality or whatever. Each person is a mix of many things not just one.

This is a bit of an exaggeration of how I feed the birds! Over the winter I have been throwing seeds out of our windows on to the roof and into the wooded bit beside us to help the birds through the cold. They seem to appreciate it and it's wonderful for us to see the wildlife so close! #art #webcomic #webcomics #comics #bird #birds #animalart #animalillustration #cute #feedingthebirds #seeds #illustrationoftheday #shorthair #rooftop #watercolour #watercolor #paper #daily #dailylife #lifestyle #funtimes #nature #sliceoflife #relationshipgoals #life #casual #outdoors #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe
