Another Otter

I basically started this straight after the last blog post earlier today, haha.
Another painty doodle

Things I gone and done

Most of my creative energies have been going into making designs for work (embroideries for customers/ custom tshirts etc), but I have made a few things recently for me.

At work I recently came up with this little guy. We have a new kind of transfer vinyl which is transparent, allowing for transferring sketches which is pretty exciting for me.

He's on sale in the shop. 
 After drawing the seal, I drew this little otter to match. A few hours in photoshop

Years ago I bought a pyrography machine and doodled a wren on a scrap of old board. I meant to add more to it but it never happened. I found it again a few weeks ago whilst looking through the boxes of my university stuff (which I'm still to unpack, years later).

I had a brainwave and decided that I'd make it into a chalkboard and tried out some Annie Sloan chalk paints on it. The paint is so satisfying to work with. I honestly want to slather everything in the house with it.

I finished off the wren with some pen to darken the eyes and add details
