February 2015 Handmade Calender Pages

February calender

It’s February! Halleluah (Im not a fan of January). This month not particularly related to the season. Valentines theme? screw that.  February’s calender page is a mix of all leftover bits of drawings, screen print, photocopy and painting dating back to long ago. I dont like to throw stuff away. Its all under the bed, but now a bit less of it, as i used it. In your face naysayers.

This year me and my husband made calenders to give to some of our friends and family.

January says Happy New Year and has a sheep because 2015 is year of the sheep!

I will post each month up as we go along the year.

who knows where we’ll all be by the end of 2015!

Painting silhouettes on marbled paper like Jan Pienowski

I always loved the illustrator Jan Pienowski’s work with marbling and silhouettes. This summer at art camp we made some illustrations in his style. jan pienowski jan pienowski jan pienowski castleJan pienowski

Bookshelf Mural with Pot Plants

I recently finished a lovely commission which was to paint a bookshelf with dangly plants onto a kitchen wall. The clients chose some book titles and let their friends make suggestions too. As they have kindles/e-readers they don’t have a need for many books in their house anymore.

Simple illustrations for English Learners. Bus Story

This is another set of illustrations for a book that will be published next year for use in London ESOL classrooms. It is a story about a woman who is over 60 and assumes that the young men on the bus don’t deserve the priority seats.

She feels bad, and is more careful in the future but still doesn’t like it when kids take them.

thailand leaves. always autumn

Leaf likers should try Thailand. Or if that’s a bit far, Kew Gardens.
In Thailand jungle I noticed that as there isnt an autumn season leaves and plants are always dying. so you have birth and death ever present. coming from somewhere with more distinct seasons, i found it a bit tiring. or, how do you know the shape of the year? it means the season changes are more subtle? wet or dry. but if you visit just for a short time you can get the general idea, and see the plants in all stages of their lives. I enjoyed the skeleton leaves. great big skeleton leaves that look like massive fishbones. and tiny fragile ones. but i havent drawn those yet.
