Gumdrop dragons

I have a new shop online, on the 'Folksy' website. This is a site for handmade art and craft items, similar to Etsy, but based in the UK. My first item is gumdrop dragons; small colourful dragons that come in a range of patterns and shapes. With stuff like this I think it depends on the photographs. If you get really colourful pictures, that capture peoples imaginations, you'll do really well.

CathARTic art group

Started an online art group for people with M.E./cfs and similar fatigue related conditions. Please help promote it: Really important!

The group is based on facebook at the moment, though in the future I might make a website for it if it works. The ideas is to give people a place to chat and post artwork. If you have fatigue issues, one of the few expressive outlets is art, which for me when very ill, can be as simple as lying down and scribbling with some pastels. It's not about what you do or how it turns out, but the process itself.

In the future I plan to hold friendly local art sessions, in comfortable settings, possibly using meditations and visualisations, along with art therapy techniques. The ideas is to do something, easy, positive and fun which doesn't take and thought or energy.

Craft fair

I've been building up to a craft fair for ages, and held one this weekend at a local college. It was quite hard work getting it all set up, but it was an interesting experiment. I think we didn't really have the right crowd; kids and artistic people loved my stall but your normal boring browser didn't know what to make of dragons, goblins and crows! I think I need to find a better way to sell my stuff to the right people. Anyway, I was quite pleased for my first ever effort. Anyone who doesn't know, I have quite a few health problems so it was a big achievement to do this! Here are some pics:
Not the best setting for my stall of curiosities; in front of a computer room! It's me on the far right btw!

My favourite things on my stall, little pond fairires:

Here's some other things I had for sale. They're still avaliable, so if anyone wants to buy anything, just let me know;) !:
I've a few more piccies to add so check back...... Let me know what u guys think :)

Little pot beast

This is a little earthenware pinch pot I made. He's a cool little beast with horns and teeth! His tounge looks great too, all pink and shiny. Wouldn't mind making a load of these, all different shapes and colours, and having a little herd of em sat on my shelf. Check him out in my garden........

Probably not worth the fortune it cost me to do a clay modelling course, but still a pretty cool little guy. Also would mind doing a giant version of this dude to sit in my garden!


At the moment I'm working on putting together a craft stall, so far I got some owl art dolls, some cast sun and moon sculpted heads, crow art dolls, fluffboxes, greetings cards and more.... Okay so this probably doesn't make much sense to anyone, but I'll at least try to get some pictures up.


I'm trying to get a zazzle store set up too. This means you can buy greetings cards and stuff with my art dolls on. Some cartoons too, even if they only make sense to crazy peoiple like me:

Daemon art doll

I've had a break from the internet to concentrate on other things, but I'm back now and have updated my website. Here's a couple of pictures of an art doll character I made a while back. He's got horns made from sea shells, a real gourd across his back, and reminds me of a travelling monk....but a daemon too!

I've recently been working on making some unusual puppets. Kind of more like kinetic sculptures really. They have simple faces and novel, hand-built mechanisms giving them strange, fluid movements. The puppet above has a head mounted on a spring, and wires attached. These lead to plastic rings which you put around your fingers. Pulling these tilts and turns the head in a very creepy, lifelike manner. It's great fun experimenting with this kind of puppetry.

I've also been very busy making dragons, to sell in a local shop. It's a shell shop, buy the sea, and sells unusual shells and jewellry. I have a display in the window, with little dragons coming out of shells.

mutant munny and dragons

I got a couple of munny's a while ago and made them into mutant zombie creatures.... why not? I might sell them when I get my ETSY shop up and running again. I still need to figure out how to take better pictures, this guy looks so much cooler in real life!


I've been trying to get a load of little dragons finished too, for a display in a local shop. I finally got them done but have been too ill to get to work on anything else! This is one of the little guys, hopefully i can get some decent shots of the display when it's up:

There are a load of tiny little dragons, this guy is about 2cm across. I've also got some cool, bigger dragons which took ages to make! If anyone wants to buy one let me know!

Tommy and his Little Gas Mask

HIIIIIIII!! I'm back after a new year break, and this is my first main project of the year....

I've been commisioned to make a doll of this character, for a writer. He's called Tommy and, well, he's got a little gas mask. Check out this awesomely bizarre video on youtube:

There is also, randomly, a band making really dark and brooding music over at:

 I think I'll make the doll free-standing and fairly simple. He'll have flexible arms and I might try to make a real leather gas mask.... yeah good luck with that junk!

This is a great little project and I'll post my doll on here a s soon as it's finished. If anyone lese has any projects for me, let me know!
