The sun is shining, the birds are singing!
And we went to the woods. It's a very rare occasion when I get to take my big flump of a pup to the woods which is awful given how much he loves it. No matter how bad you feel, seeing your dog light up with pure joy is one of the best feelings!
So we took to the road and found his favorite woods and had a good long walk surrounded by nature and laughs. Trust me, when you spend time with my dog you realise that life is for laughing at!
So after the most refreshing walk and flumps splash around in a pond it was time for home and work!
Well, at least work for me... the flump got to be lazy and sunbathe for the rest of the day when he wasn't clambering on to my lap for hugs and kisses. I love it when he comes to distract me :P Who could resist the huge teddy bear!
I had the idea for a sunny summer idea for a set of three designs. I had the first idea of a bear as I seem to be having a bit of a bear moment lately and then added a wolf to the mix... the OH then convinced me that a mountain lion would be an amusing addition to the mix!
So of course, I wanted to draw these guys wearing sun glasses... cos who wouldn't want a grinning wolf in sunnies?
The original plan was to have the three linearts completed by Friday... what happened was I sat down at my desk for a good few productive hours and now as the picture below explains have all three linearts completed!
This is obviously a huge bonus to me and means that I can have them digitised and coloured by the end of the week instead which then in turn lightens my mega work load!
Seriously the to-do list is constantly growing and never shrinking (I secretly love this)
I'm also very glad that I was convinced to do the mountain lion, she may be my favorite of the bunch... although the grinning wolf is close...
I just had to do something cheerful and bright, the constellation series is of course colourful but lacks the brightness I'm after so this is an extra addition.
Once these are scanned and coloured they will have a whole new life and I can't wait, it's taking all of my will power not to pull an all nighter to do it!
Just have to remember, sleep is good... Family will also kill me if I burn out :P
The sunnies designs will be available through my redbubble shop by the end of the week and during May something big will be happening.
I'm going to be expanding and if all goes to plan will be offering signed prints of my work so if you're interested keep an eye out!
I am also considering some limited addition prints with something extra... all shall be revealed soon!
So if you want to get your paws on my designs keep a look out in May when shiny sparkly things will be happening!
Have a beautiful week and make your own happy! :)
