The heavy rain and light snow hasn't arrived yet so I'm going to put off the wellies-and-umbrellas blog for another day and go with a summery theme - insects!
Before we start I thought I'd share my latest project with you. I bought a book on drawing cartoons over the weekend so this week I'm experimenting with digital art (if I try to do real drawings a little boy runs off with my pencil...), texture and distortion, and the result is the picture on the right. What do you think? I think the mug needs some steam coming out of it to make it look more like a lovely big mug of tea/coffee but otherwise I'm happy. The use of real textures in cartoons seems to be very popular on children's tv at the moment so this image is probably influenced more by Cbeebies than anything I learnt from the book.
Back to today's blog - here's a collection of insects made justg for you by British sellers on Etsy.
