Inky Square number 1 - Toadstool

As usual I have been drawing toadstools, a lot. I have been making the most of my gorgeous Japanese pens, working on high quality recycled cotton rag paper, and really enjoying myself. I've been creating images that make me smile, using only black ink.

This one is for sale, as a one off original, in the ickleson etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/listing/71066320/inky-square-no-1-toadstool-orginal


More coming soon x x x

Brush pen girl

I treated myself to a selection of gorgeous Japanese brush pens of various colour, size and make. They are great fun to draw with, and I love the results. You can get the effect of drawing with a brush dipped in ink without all the mess.



If you want to get some to try for yourself, I can really recomend these http://www.jetpens.com/index.php/cPath/221_872

30th Birthday and other stories

Hello, I have neglected this blog for too long.

But while I've been gone I reached one of those milestones in life, the big three zero! I was dreading it but it turned out to be the perfect excuse to see lots of dear friends and family, and to take a road trip.
We stayed in the Hotel du Vin in York, which was simply gorgeous. We also stayed in Oulton hall outside Leeds, and that wasn't shabby either. I spent my time exploring and shopping by day, and drinking champagne & cocktails by night.
York Minster, very spooky by night: There are even Ghost walks that start right outside, next time I will make sure I have time to go on one. I loved the atmosphere, and can't wait to go back.
