…just a little bit of lettering originally drawn up for Jenipher Lyn and the promotion for her superb book "How being Stubborn, Depressed and Unpopular saved my Life". If you'd like to, you can find out more about Jenipher, her book and her work here. This little bit of lettering is now also featured on the GREAT type board created by Pumpkin Pie on Pinterest.

'teatime' ©beebrown 2014
…just a really simple pencil drawing for today…I'm finding it quite surprising how some of these quite random & playful little sketches/doodles are developing and influencing my ideas for my 'proper' work on a daily basis…a doodle a day has shown me that it's a really good discipline to make, even if its only very quick, a fun, just for the hell-of-it drawing a day…if you've been following along you'll have noticed that I've had more time on some days to experiment, but the practice has been great…and I've picked up a few valuable basic photoshop skills too! I'll probably be posting less frequently on my doodle challenge now but I'm definitely going to carry on with my doodle a day!  xx

watery sun...

... playing with a little watercolour painting in photoshop today just to experiment with another way of using colour  … this is a very quick, quite small painting which after I scanned in, I finished off by collaging together…I then played with colour adjustments and contrast to get some different effects... I like the way that the watercolour effect remains but to get the colour just right is going to take quite a bit of practice! Limitless possibilities and the process is a lot of fun. x

…just quickly dropping in to pop up my next doodle of another bird (do love me birds!)…a brighter and more jolly one today! Really feel as though I'm starting to get the hang of colour…and thank you to everyone sending me encouraging messages…its really appreciated. Hope you'll pop back for more when you can. xx

bird & butterflies...

…I feel like I've made a bit of a breakthrough on using colour, how to colour up sketches and adding a bit of texture in Photoshop today… this little illo has come out a tad darker than on screen so perhaps the next thing ought to be looking at how to brighten things up a bit!… Anyway, learning lots and more cut outs tomorrow! x
