Figure study 

Figure study on artset pro. Don’t know where I was going here.. Must revist:)

The natural movement of one’s soul is upwards. But just as any object is dragged down when a heavy weight is tied to it, the burden of the body drags down the soul.

 Take from it what you will.. An image can speak different words to everyone, don’t you think?

Life Study; biro on Cambridge ruled paper 

It’s been a week of being stuck in front of computer or vegging in front of telly/cinema screen. I needed to hold a pen in my hand and create something even if it was a quick scribble.
So scribble I did, behold my lady drawn on ruled paper with a biro as that’s all the materials I had in my work briefcase lol 

I like her! i hope you do to! Tonight I am off to the Blog awards where I’m shortlisted in the arts and culture section. Very exciting stuff! Not a hope of winning I’m just going to sit back and enjoy! Like this lady but with more clothes 😛 

Have a great day 🙂

Doodle fail 

This last weekend I stayed in Monart with my friends from school. yes we are still friends.. getting on now 😛 Its a long time since school ha

We spent two nights lazing about getting massages and relaxing. It was pure heaven. On one of these days relaxing I had my iPad out reading a book on my Kindle. I got bored and decided to doodle on my art set app. This is the catastrophe that happens when you have no stylus, no plan and are too comatose to function. Needless to say i gave up after 10 mins and admitted failure. Way to easy to do when the Thermal suites are calling. Haha Continue reading

Elephant doodles on artset pro

They say that somewhere in Africa the elephants have a secret grave where they go to lie down, unburden their wrinkled gray bodies, and soar away, light spirits at the end. -Robert R McCammon

If ever I am having a sucky day elephants cheer me up, they are my favourite creatures on earth 🙂 this quick “doodle” is done using Artset Pro. 

Thanks to Tracy  at Daily WIP for the reminder!  It’s nothing fancy just some art therapy really of a dreary Monday 😛

What’s your favourite animal? I’d love to know 🙂 

Added bonus pic is below of me being caretaker for a day in Chang Mai at Patara Elephant farm. They rescue and care for elephants, dream come true for me! They make you wear that extremely flattering outfit 😛
