So this week I have been working on a little illustration of my own between other bits of work.

I thought I would finally start doing some things inspired by my amazing road trip across America last year.

So here is a little Chicago illustration. 

Hoping to do some more, maybe using different materials.

I also added it to my Society6 shop. You can get it printed onto all kinds of things over there so go take a look.
I also made my fox and bird print available as PILLOWS!

So first of all, Happy new year! (I know I am 8 days late on saying it)

Just realised how much of a failure my 'daily drawing month' was back in October! 3 posts? rubbish. 

Well, back in October things got pretty busy. 
In June, I took on a part time job at a lovely dressage stables, as I needed a bit extra income etc. 
It was nice to have that security and nice spending lots of time outside...even though it has mainly rained non-stop since June! 

Anyway, I finished my lovely little part time job last Friday. My design work has been picking up and I need the extra time to spend on that, as I was struggling to fit everything in and running out of energy.
I am hoping that I will not need another source of income, and hope that I can build my freelance design and illustration business this year.
I am really going to go for it in 2013!!!

Last year was quite a roller coaster.
There was a lot of sadness as we lost a few friends and nearly lost Pepper.
Some big decisions had to be made also.

I did however have an amazing adventure travelling around America on a road trip with Chris. Gained some unforgettable memories.
Also got to go to the Olympics and experience the amazing Team GB owning the eventing!

2012 felt like a year that just took you a long with it. It flew by, and only looking back now, I realise how much happened.

2013 is a year that I am determined to have much more control over.

Not sure if any of that makes sense.

Lets see what happens!
