Nora's Faun

Here's a quick preview of a commision I made. He's a faun, made for Nora who's really cool and likes all the same weird stuff as me! Hope you like him Nora, he's on his way now :)

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.
