Etsy Love - Sausage Dogs

It's no secret I'm a crazy dog lady, and Etsy is full of amazing dog themed art and crafts! So I'm aiming to do a series of dog themed Etsy Love posts.

Feel free to suggest some dog breeds! This week is dedicated to Daschunds, or "Sausage dogs".

Etsy Love - Prickly Plants

I recently went to the Made in Mexico exhibition at The Fashion and Textile museum in London. It was a small, beautifully curated exhibition that immediately got me inspired for my latest uni project. I think I'm going to team together Mexican imagery with modern illustrative styles, so prepare for lots of Mexican inspired posts!

Here's the first one, it's cactus themed!

Desk of the Day - Sneaker Time

Today I'm working on an illustrator drawing of some Nike Air Force 1 sneakers. I got some white ones for my birthday and have been itching to paint them for a while! I'm going to use this drawing to figure out some designs for them before I paint!
