I spotted this adorable little dude outside yesterday- he’s so fluffy! I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera and taking a few photos!

This little caterpillar is an Orgyia Antiqua larvae, and will grow into a Rusty Tussock Moth.

Blossom & the Moon

(..Okay so it’s not really the moon!)
But moon or not, I thought the lighting of the blossom here was really beautiful, and I didn’t need to edit this photo at all to get this extraordinary colour. I took this snap when I got back from my holiday the other day, the blossom’s definitely been blown away now since we had the random snow/wind/rain/horribleness today!

I spent the past week in Athens enjoying the sunshine and putting my feet up! (just like my red panda!)
I saw some incredible sights, some were quite unexpected!
The wildlife in Greece was totally amazing, and I’ve come back feeling fully inspired.
Some doodles to come soon hopefully!
(Bedtime now!)

It was great to get out over the weekend and get a little bit of Vitamin D! We headed to Whitepost Farm in Nottingham (a completely lovely petting zoo!) I took far too many photos and we fed many many adorable animals.
I’ve attached a photos of just a few of the highlights!

I’ll be uploading some doodles very soon- sorry I’ve been so elusive, I’ve been a crazily busy bee!
Maybe I’ll even have time to do an illustration Friday!

Bull Ring Yarnbomb!


I spotted  this yarn bombing happening in Birmingham Bull Ring today-
it’s utter GENIUS and definitely made passers-by smile! They gave him a wee warm jumper!  (it was pretty cold to be fair!)

Here it is on the news!

One for Sorrow, Two for Joy…

One for Sorrow..

One for Sorrow, Two for Joy, Three for a Girl, Four for a Boy, Five for Silver, Six for Gold, Seven for a Secret Never to be Told, Eight for a Message from Over the Sea…

Where I’m living right now is magpie, heron and crow country, but over  the weekend I spotted a huge amount of magpies, I was lucky enough to have my camera nearby and take some beautiful snaps before they all flew away.

On a random note, before I got here I also had a great fascination with silverfish as I hadn’t ever seen one, and I spotted one in my bathroom recently so I took the opportunity to take some photos of something that’s so alien to me!

I named him Farthing..

 And to end on a much sunnier note, I took some beautiful photographs of stormy skies with a rainbow from my window.  I’ve been dedicating so much time on full time work and my private commissions I’ve not had much time to do any personal work. I’ll do an illustration Friday on here again soon I promise!

Somewhere over the rainbow..

I’ll be back soon with doodles and drawings!

Stormy Clouds&Surprise Daisies!

Stormy clouds!

I think I’m a wee bit obsessed with documenting the weather after writing My Troublesome Cloud! I saw some rather epic clouds looming over our house with the sun peeking through and I thought it was time to get the new camera out again! I’ve been randomly pressing slow exposure and aperture buttons to see what happens…

Surprise daisy!

I don’t normally take photos of flowers (as they don’t tend to interest me massively..) but these aren’t just daisies (reading in M&S voice) these are super- lovely- surprise- visit- from- someone- awesome, beautifully-shiny- sunshine- love- daisies!
