Take that Mosquitos!

Chameleons are ace, not just because of their Predator like colour changing skills but also cos of that really weird way they walk and how their eyes can turn all the way around, creepy/pretty.

In this heat wave I have been bitten about 15 times so far and I have a gross allergic reaction to it. If only I had a bunch of pet lizard to protect me from them. D'ya think cats and chameleons get on well?? Seems unlikely but I can live in hope.

Foul Fowl // Muscovy Duck

Not that foul really, tho what is up with that lumpy red face? Why are so many birds so bloody lumpy? Tho obvs as proven by Lumpy Space Princess this is not necessarily a bad thing.

Drawn on the piece of card my new dress was delivered wrapped, around thanks to ASOS for providing me with free art supplies :)

Lizards are the new birds ...

Went a bit lizard crazy last week but forgot to post all of them. The colours of these guys in real life are amazing and the Mwanza flat-headed Rock Agama really does have very similar colouring to Spiderman.

Top: Leopard Gecko, Bottom: Mwanza flat-headed Rock Agama Lizard

Potentially the coolest lizard ever ...

Andean Condor // Foul Fowl

Three posts in one day, what can I say ... it's been a busy day.

All these birds (well only the ugly ones) are for a zine but I am kinda tempted to keep it up and do the whole alphabet in Foul Fowl and then make me/you some posters of them. Also on the 'cards' a set of bird playing cards *ahem* perhaps.

However, for now, another Condor for your perusal.

More Watercolour Birds

A strong contender for the title "Foulest of the Foul" // The Californian Condor

Birds that resemble ball sacks may not be the first thing you think of when you hear the word California ... this is something that I hope to change. 

Let me introduce you to the fourth member of the "Foul Fowl" crew the Californian Condor, please make him/her/it feel welcome!

Nose to Tail // Blanch and Shock

My dear friends Blanch and Shock Food Design are preparing a meal to be served this evening at The Russet made almost entirely out of this massive boar head for nose to tail fortnight ...

I thought it would be fun to draw them a boar on this theme, for them to use in any publicity manner they wish, or just to look at and chuckle.

So here he/she is. Kinda cute, kinda evil. Something about this reminds me of Lord of the Flies.

Continuing with the Spring, Trees and Watercolor theme ... I've always loved drawing trees. This must being from the countryside thing.

Wallpaper // Feathers, Petals & Leaves

I made this as the background for a message board that myself and the other members of What They Could Do, They Did use to talk shop and generally guff about. Thought I should share it with you. If you set it as your computer desktop and tile it you too can have trouble seeing your files and folders! Happy Spring!

April Showers (trying to ignore all the rain and just see the blossom)

So in classic English weather style, it has been miserably wet, windy and cloudy for the latter half of April. We are now in May and it's still going (the sun made an appearance yesterday, it was epic but over all too soon). However attempting to remain positive I have been enjoying the fact that all this wind has caused the blossom to fall and cover the pavements in a carpet of petals. It looks pretty amazing. Here is a drawing I did and photos I took in tribute to one of my favourite times of year.

Oh & F U Rain! If you could just go away now please, that'd be great.
