DIY: Roses Hairbrush

I don’t know how many of you remember my Henna Hairbrush tutorial which I did quite a while back now, but this is a variation of that tutorial and using almost the exact same tools/methods. I had this spare hairbrush lying around in one of my draws, and decided I couldn’t stand seeing the back…

So many of you kept asking me over Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to draw this cheeky little devil, yes I know, he looks innocent, but so do most puppies and we all know how mischievous they can be! Of course the moment I’d pinned this to my Outsider Pinterest board I got a request to draw…

Outsider: Astrid Vârcolac Concept Sketch

I had so many different ways I wanted to draw this one!

Face Chart Planning

I’ve been considering doing series to go along side my current Real Life Disney series for a while now. As popular as it it, the lack of anything remotely dramatic or vaguely ’artsy’ is making my head melt. I need to get back to the crazy! Still planning it out but I’d like this series to…

Birthday Books Haul

One of my personal mottos is that you can never, NEVER have too many books! Especially if the book is loaded with pictures which I find inspiring. I don’t think it’ll come as a surprise to you that my favourite genres are sci-fi and fantasy. I tend to lean a little more towards fantasy but I love…
