After falling a little bit behind with my 365-drawing challenge (365 Days of Art!), I've decided to participate in the online Inktober challenge. For anyone who hasn't heard of it, Inktober is a month long drawing challenge that was initiated by artist Jake Parker. I'd heard of it before, but this is the first time … Continue reading Inktober Challenge
Although I've sketched fennec foxes a few times in the last year (being desert animals that sleep most of the day, they make lovely drawing subjects!) I hadn't gotten around to creating a full size drawing of them. The reference photo I used for this drawing was a slightly grainy image I'd taken in 2016 … Continue reading Fennec Foxes

This year, once again commencing on the 1st November, I have decided to create … Continue reading 365 Days of Art!
Last year, on the 1st November, I started a 365-day Photography Project. The idea of this was to unlock some creative blocks and to get into the habit of taking photos again. Most of the photos were taken with a Sony smartphone, and I discovered so much more about the art of composition when taking … Continue reading A Year of Creative Photography…
While doing some research, I stumbled across various photographers pages and groups with 365-Day Photo Projects, each posting a photo a day online. I thought I would have a go at doing this myself as I find it hard to strike a balance between either taking far too many photos or struggling to get inspired! … Continue reading 365 Day Photo Project
