Really, really thankful for my mum and dad – for a whole lot of things – but feeling it especially this week because they got me a ‘Wacom’ drawing tablet for my bday!!! ☺️
Seemed fitting to christen it with a Pokémon drawing — and who better than the OG dragon: Dragonite! I’ve got a LvL 100 one in my Pokémon Bank called ‘Toothless’, and he’s one of my absolute favourites (also got another one called ‘LeBron’!)
Hope you like the drawing — really enjoying getting to grips with the tablet! (:
(Featuring: #149 Dragonite🐲 + some flowers! 🌸🌺🌼)
Found this old painting I did a good few years at ‘Imagine’ when I was tidying up my bedroom yesterday. I’d totally forgotten about it! Guess it was the first time I really painted or drew just for my own enjoyment.
Seems like a lifetime ago.
The painting is pretty explicit in its theme: it’s about how the road might be difficult, but we’ll get there in the end…
Earlier this year I did a painting of Bilbo Baggins (who coincidentally shares his name with one of our cats!) running out of ‘The Shire’ to begin his epic adventure with Gandalf, Thorin and the rest of the dwarves in ‘The Hobbit’.
I was pleasantly surprised by how it turned out. It had been about ten years since I’d last tried to paint something, and even then it was just messing around in secondary school. It’s something I want to get better at.
Seemed like something good to start this whole blog journey with — I’m hoping it’s going to be a fun adventure…
