Making a crack at D.I.Y.

In Vanocuver, Pretty much the majority of houses come unfurnished, So when it's time to move out, you either sell or give away your furniture... Lucky for me, one of the neighbors was moving out and left their dressing table in the bin. So I snatched it. I cleaned it all off in detol . Mmmmm. ThenI started painting it white.
I used black for the drawers and Christmas decorations for the handles. Then I put finishing paper on the top because  I make a mess when I do my makeup.
I like it!

Moving to VanCoova

Hello. I might not be as active with this because I am currently in the process of finding a job and moving house in Canada. It is so much fun!!! Here is a little illustration I made anyway. I will update this when something interesting happens... (or when I make some artwork, rather)

Matt Willis - McBusted Illustration

Hello hi 
I made an illustration of Matt from Busted cos I loved him when I was a teenager. I didn't know they had formed a new band (McBusted) to be honest. I wasn't even really a fan of Busted but I liked his crazy antics and he also had a great face. I watched a documentary about the newly formed McBusted and he seemed like a sweetheart. Aww. Bless him! I tweeted this pic to him but he never replied... I couldn't believe it!!!

Orla Keogh - XFactor Illustration

I was watching the Xfactor the other day and seen a lady I had not seen before. As shallow as it sounds, I always am more drawn to contestants because of their style or look rather than their singing ability. It's always a plus when they can sing. Irish girl Orla Keogh was one of those people. I hadn't seen her original audition so when she came out to the bootcamp finals it was my first time to hear her sing. She was pretty amazeballs and as soon as I finished watching it, I went on to ASOS and searched for some pale blue galaxy-esque style leggings. I didn't find any but bought a marble print Sweatshirt instead. (I don't really know why I told you that piece of irrelevant information)

So I made her a wee digital print to show my appreciation anyway. I think she was robbed but Xfactor can be a major platform to the ones who don't get in anyway....So S'all Good! She contacted me about the illustration and was very humble and thankful. I sent them on to her and posted them on her social media sites which was lovely of her. I hope she remembers my little drawing when she hits the big time :)

FRAN LOVE/HATE..Illustration

I was late to the bandwagon (dunno if that's even
the saying) watching LOVE/HATE. Everyone was ranting and raving about it and that always puts me off watching something. ...But the I watched it. I bloody loved it. I watched the entire 3 seasons in about two weeks and developed a Dublin accent. Oh god! Anyway, My favourite carachter is Fran. He is a ruthless gang member but also good craic. He does awful things but I warmed to him.

Then I drew him. The actual actor (Peter Coonan) commented on it saying it was fantastic and all... Thanks Fran... or Peter!
