Firstly, Happy Women’s Day folks! It’s lovely to see the achievements of women around the world. If you’d like to take a look at how far we’ve come- click the link here for a timeline all the way back to 1908! Such an inspiring day!
Feeling empowered, I thought to finish off some artwork that has been taking a back seat while I’ve been writing my dissertation. Oh the woes of a final year University student! Alas, if you have a passion- you’re going to do everything you can to get where you want to be. So this Sunday, amongst all my research papers, I have completed some designs.
I’ve started using the Micron Pens (which you can find here on Amazon) which have yet to disappoint me at all! I’d go so far as to say they are the best pens I’ve used. Plus I have the ailment (especially when it comes to sketching and art) of being left-handed. So you get the annoyance of smudging quite a lot, but these pens satisfy my needs. If you’re wanting to start dotwork illustration or need good pens for fine or thick lines- Micron is your best bet.
The reason for finishing some pieces is the fact that I’m designing a new collection for Keep Real (eep!). For a sneak peek, here’s the mandala I’ve just completed. Notice the tiny moths within it! It’s my favourite mandala so far within the collection, I cannot wait to get started on more ideas. I haven’t given away the theme of it, but the mandala is a slight giveaway. But not too much of one!
I would absolutely LOVE some feedback from my followers on it. If you haven’t checked out my Instagram, please do. I post most of my artwork up on there and give little previews!
