Here is my new piece that I made for my Mum's 50th birthday. 

She requested a blue alien girl, so I took that brief and rolled with it. I think the turning point of the project was when I had the idea to give her pink hair. I was originally going to give her orange hair, but I thought the pink would suit my Mum's tastes more and made the whole thing look really sugary and cute. When I saw that I was going down the ultra cute road I made her eyes really bright and added white freckles.

I have had quite a long break between this piece and the last one I did at the beginning of the year, I've generally been sorting out my life, moving house and finding a new job. Now that I am settled I will be attending to my illustration again.

There will be prints, laptop skins, phone cases and cushions of thins available on my Society6 page.

Started Drawing Again!

Things have been pretty crazy these past few months. I've moved house, so imagine all the craziness involved with that and I hope you understand why I haven't been that active!

I'm currently drawing a birthday present for my mum. She asked me for a blue alien girl and off I went all inspired and ready to go. It's been quite a while since I picked up a pencil, and I didn't realise quite how much I missed it. The repetitive strokes, getting the shading just right and choosing the perfect colours. I feel like a piece of my life has clicked back into place, and I now have so many ideas that I want to execute.

Here is where I am upto so far with the alien girl piece:

She doesn't have a name yet, I'm still waiting for some inspiration to hit me. Since I've started drawing again I have started an Instagram profile! I usually post daily updates of where I am up to, or inspiration I see in my daily life. If you would like to follow me my username is natashahuttonart. I'll probably update this blog about once a week, and it'll be a more indepth update on where I am than any of my other social media sites.

Cute Robin Cushions!

This is a piece that I did for my Nan's 70th birthday. Happy Birthday Nanny!!!! As usual, made with pencils and pastels on neutral paper.

I have also put this up on Society6, so you can purchase this as a print or you can get this adorable fluffy robin on a cushion, which looks sooooo cute!
Here is the link to the cushions: LINK

I'm very busy at work at the moment, which is having limitations on the amount of energy I have at the end of the day to draw. But I'm currently on working on bits and pieces to put onto my Etsy shop and building up a greetings card portfolio.

Bombus Terrestris (Bumblebee) Card Design

Just finished the bee illustration that I have been working on. I LOVED drawing the bee's hair, it was so much fun and such an amazing texture.

So my plans for this illustration is to turn it into a card for my Etsy shop (one of many card that I have ideas for). The theme will my take on 'You're The Bee's Knees', and there's a few more bits and pieces that I need to draw for this card before I put it together. I'll be posting updates with where I am at on this card design on Twitter. Next thing I'm going to be drawing is honeycomb!!

EDIT: May 2014
This design is now up for sale on my Zazzle Store: LINK
The store has a wide variety of products such as cushions, greeting cards, keychains and phone cases.

Bumblebee - Bombus Terrestris

Just a little sneak peak into a card I am making at the moment. I've always wanted to do more insect and botanical illustration, so I'm including bits and pieces in my work from now on. So this will a card with a bumblebee included within the design (the rest will be a surprise!).

I've enjoyed researching into bumblebees, especially when you have to type bombus (the scientific name for the bumblebee family) into search engines and giggle every time. And they are so cute!!!

I also am making more of an effort to update my twitter feed with little bits and bobs. The link to my twitter  is on the side of this blog if you would like to follow me! I'm also on facebook (and a bit more interactive on that), so if you would like to follow me on that here's the link: FACEBOOK
