My Muse

This week's challenge at's CHOW (Character of the Week) forum was to visualise and create your muse. This is totally open ended and it was interesting reading what inspires others and how they formed these inspirations and elements in to their own new character.

I'm very pleased to announce that I actually got my entry finished!! Hooray! I take most of my inspiration from animals and plants - markings, colour schemes, even my costume designs, are generally based on the creatures and plants of the natural world, especially birds and fish. Also if I stare at fire long enough I begin to see all sort of magical images that I want to create.

So, in a very broad attempt at smashing my inspirations all together, here she is - my muse.

For Alicia...

A friend of mine asked if she could commission me to do some artwork for the bedrooms of her three little girls. I said yes, before she even told me what she'd like - princesses, fairies and dinosaurs. Needless to say I was thrilled!! What wonderful themes! I'm going to keep them all fairly simple, nice and bold with bright colours and lots of textures. I'm doing 5 for each room, so 15 in total, so it'll be a while before they're all complete.

But for's the two I have done.
