Arts Derbyshire Directory

I'm trying harder at self promotion, and so...

 I'm now featured in the Arts Derbyshire Directory!

which is available, at www.artsderbyshire.org.uk

The site is a really useful resource for creative's and artists, and is great platform for finding opportunities and arts events in the local area.

So it's great to be listed on the site!

New work

Firstly I have to apologise for the poor quality of these images,

I've taken the pictures using a digital camera, but ideally I'm waiting to scan them in. I don't have a high quality scanner at home, but soon I hope to use a good scanner to scan all my recent work with.

Here are a few examples of the characters I've been painting recently, I've been trying to develop my Illustrative style, and keep exploring new ways of working and depicting characters.

I used the same pose, here for both character's, but changed the face.

I haven't kept the blog very updated, and have gotten side tracked from my Illustration work, due to commitments at work and home.

I've purchased a domain name, and hope to be setting up a professional looking website soon, and get all my work up to date and scanned in on it.

My Etsy Shop is up and running...


I've finally gotten around to creating an Etsy Shop to sell prints of my Illustrations and paintings.

I've been selling my prints locally, and at various events. However its about time I set up an online platform to sell my work.

you can find my online shop here : www.etsy.com/shop/SDGIllustration

and you can also find a linked tab to the shop underneath the banner of this blog. I haven't uploaded all of the prints available yet, I have uploaded ones that I currently have available for sale, having sold the others I had had printed.

so hopefully we'll see what happens!

I'm also setting up a Facebook page, it seems a little crazy that I hadn't done it sooner, but I thought I should add it to the list of online platforms I am available on. So that's underway too!
