Gothic decoden pocket Mirrors

New craft work I'm making a bunch of these new Gothic decoden art print pocket mirrors with a resin encased art print front and lots of hand cast resin cabochons and silver studs on the back. Will be bringing some of these to local Christmas markets over December and hopefully will have some to list online when I launch my new online store next year 💗 !

New Cat Mandala Cards

I'm printing and crafting these new card designs with the mind to add them soon to my online shop, I added a little lace heart on the front, I love the Victorian mood of these juxtaposed with a feel of Dutch Delph Pottery in blue and white.

The design was created by manipulation in Adobe Photoshop from one of my original pen and ink drawings.

Charcoal Self Portrait

I don't usually draw realism, but it's a good way to test yourself and perhaps it can bring new energy to other work on the creative flow, years of drawing super stylized lips I am struggling to get these right In charcoal 🤔 A work in progress! #wip

Recent Charcoal Work Febuary 2017

After being away in New York for a month over Christmas it has taken me a while to get back into the studio, I wanted to start my creative year off by returning to my most beloved medium which for me is charcoal, I love the work ability of drawing in charcoal nothing sorts my mental clutter out as much as moving charcoal dust around on a sheet of good drawing paper. I recently bought a block of Fabriano 300gsm its big just larger than A1 size at 50 x 70cm, I have a lot of organizational stuff happening right now as I will be doing a bit of art and decor for Species a Gothic festival that happens on our land in Co. Leitrim, this will be its 3rd year and it's a lot of work! With promotion, planning, and a huge amount of emails. To try and conjurer my inner goth and get into the head frame for the task ahead I drew this gothy lady, here is a photo of the finished artwork and also below is a little video 3 stage time lapse I made of the process:

Three Stage Time-lapse:

Before Christmas I spent a bulk of my studio time making new canvas supports, these were marbled canvas stretched over board and coated with the most divinely coarse clear gesso from liquitex, amazing surface for charcoal work! I have not forgotten about these large 4 x 4ft canvases, I dearly look forward to begin the charcoal work on these and see how the images will evolve around the swirly psychedelic marbled design. These new and spontaneous charcoal drawings, that I will be making over the next while are helping me get back into my flow before I bring my new ideas to the canvas I spent so much time prepping. Feels good to update here! hope to keep up the momentum over the coming weeks 💗
