New Paper Art Doll

I will have a new "Cut-out & Dress" paper art doll in the shop at the weekend. I say NEW, but actually did most of the illustration work 3 years ago, before the mythical Mac Meltdown which meant I lost a lot of my work. I luckily found this unfinished version on a back-up disc a few weeks ago and have just tweaked it back into life. Yay!

Just experimenting in how to make work done mainly in photoshop look as messy and spontaneous as that done on paper with inks and pencils. Some doll inspired prints coming to the shop soon :o)

Number crunching

If anyone is thinking it has been a long time since I commented on your blogs... well, it's not through lack of trying (or interest). It's just that Blogger, in their wisdom, have changed to entirely numerical catchpa's, which means it can take me 3 or 4 attempts before I can successfully copy the catchpa code and prove I am not a robot, just a human being with faulty number recognition software in my head!

Let's face it, after the first unsuccessful attempt, I usually give up and go away. Dyscalculia rarely gives me that many problems in everyday life these days, I am pretty confident with small sequences of numbers but a big string of them still baffles me and causes slight panic. So please don't be offended if I don't comment for a while :o)
