Converse Boot

This year I have resolved to enjoy my clothes a bit more. What more fun can I have than buying a pair of sneakers I love! I automatically went for the black converse boots, but bought these blue ones on a whim.

And now they’re my favourites!

The only problem with drawing one of them was that it’s had to sit on my desk for a week, or so! Sure I could have completed the drawing a little quicker, but I wasn’t too sure how it was going to turn out – so fear was holding me back a bit!

As usual I drew the outline in 0.8 unipin, then used 0.1 unipin to draw in some of the finer defining lines. Then I used black ballpoint to shade in areas and blue ballpoint to shade in the main canvas of the sneaker. Finally I used a payne’s grey colour wash over the sneaker to aline it closer to it’s darker blue shade.

I finally completed this drawing today; just in time to spill Wasabi Dressing all over the black converse boots that I’ve been wearing whilst I drew!


Okay, buttons was the theme for day 12 of the Every Day in May project.

I thought it would be neat to draw a pile of chocolate buttons. So off I went and boy was it a flat, uninspiring creation.

Hated it! (In fact, I can’t believe I’ve even posted the darned thing!)

So I took off and redid the whole theme again with a different set of buttons.

Now, anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE my brown, denim jacket. I got it whilst I was at college (many years ago!) and although I’ve had to re-dye it a couple of times and the edges are getting a bit frayed I love it to bits.

Ladybird Toothbrush Holder

Well – a ladybird has wings, but this toothbrush holder, does not … Another one of Lucy’s things. She doesn’t use this to hold her toothbrush and she never uses the timer which the little fellow is holding. To be honest I don’t think this little chap is going to sit on the bathroom windowsill for very much longer šŸ˜¦
