Artwork WIP and Life

I've had a half-decent day of the creative variety today so I figured I would share with you all what I'm currently working on and what I've been up to.

For those of you who don't know me, I work full-time as a sales administrator in a small specialist technical services company. That's 45 hours per week of mind-numbing boredom. Don't get me wrong, as jobs go this one is okay and I really enjoy the company of the people I work with. It's just not very challenging. At all.

Outside of work I try hard to do something a little more stimulating. I go to the gym four times a week and see my friends as often as I can. I adore reading and will quite often get home from work and sit quietly in my room with my book until bedtime some four hours later. Every now and then I get inspired to draw or paint or doodle, and once I start something I try my hardest to finish it. Those days don't happen so often anymore. Back when I was in London I found a lot more time to indulge my many hobbies, including sewing, claycraft and beading. I've pretty much given up on all of those now, but drawing and painting still happens!

This is my current WIP. I'm having lots of fun with him! I currently have a problem with the painting and the layout that I haven't yet figured out how to resolve, so it's currently stuck in limbo while I decide what to do. It will hopefully match the wolf picture I did for my Secret Santa gift :)

I have some doodles to post up later too, I did some sketching at the Manchester Museum earlier today :)

Righty, I am off to bed to read, when did it get so late?

Good night!


  1. That wolfy!! Loooveeee him. I just scored some stunning Windsor Newton watercolors, so I'm feeling the painting bug, too. But what to paint?!

    1. Aww thanks! I miss him, but Chelle has him up on her wall :3 My mum has already claimed my incomplete stag.

      Nice! Is it the half-pan set or tubes? What to paint indeed! I'm thinking about breaking out my ACEOs to do a small dragon painting. Maybe.
