further experiments in ink…

I have been doing some more work lately using splodgy ink and a feathery brush. I quite like the results and I thought I’d try adding other collage layers digitally. The black dog above is the result of ink and collage combined and the creatures below are ink applied with brush and dip pen. There’s a story there, I’m just figuring out what it is…

red critter and the cowboy snowman

I woke the other day to thick flakes of snow falling past my window. It didn’t last long before turning to so much slush, but whilst it was falling the world was silent and beautiful. I can’t help it, I love snow!  Here is a little red critter who has just come across a cowboy snowman. I liked him so much I turned him into a pattern too.
