Illustration Friday: ONOMATOPOEIA

This weeks topic at Illustration Friday is Onomatopoeia, and since that is a word that I have loved saying since I first heard it when I was little, I decided to try and find the time whilst taking care of the baby viking to upload a submission for the theme.

I was lucky again in that I already had a design that popped to mind when I saw the theme. "Giggly Ghost" is my go to. Not just because of the onomatopoeia of the word 'giggle', but also because of the classic ghostly refrain of "Boo!".

I reworked the image slightly to suit the theme, but the original design and indeed range of products can be found here.

Aerial Daredevil

Geronimo!

For some reason, my camera decided to make every shot of him blurry this morning, and I didn't have time before his nap to take any more. This was my favourite of the slightly-out-of-focus bunch however. I quite like the little smirk. Like he's saying "Yeah, so I jump out of planes with nothing but a handkerchief as a parachute. Don't you?"

He Likes To Be...Under The Sea

Erik: Deep Sea Explorer.

I'm really loving doing these little illustrations of our little guy. It takes so little effort on both of our parts, and he loves when I lay him down on the sheet and we make faces at each other while he has his photo taken. Then when he goes down for his long midday nap, I get to do my version of 'relaxing'....to whit: drawing.

So, now that I am for the most part, completely busy with being a mum and not being able to do much in regards to my online shops or making general designs and illustrations, I can still get to explore the artist side of me most days, if only for a few minutes (or at best hours)

One of the most fun parts is actually going through the pictures we take (sometimes up to 100) to find one that has the perfect expression, or body positioning. Weirdly, for this one, it was the first I took in a series of about 60. He was looking at something on the TV and thought is was very amusing.

My Viking Son

Considering he's half Danish, it had to be done didn't it? 
He's like 'Tra-la la-la-laa! I'm off to do some pillaging!"

Fun with Baby Photos

Our son Erik just hit the four month mark recently. What better way to celebrate than by taking some time out to create some fun pictures for him to look at later in life.

I got the idea to do this from Adele Enersen who originally started doing stuff like this with her children, Mila and Vincent. Check out her site http://adeleenersen.com/main it's awesome!!

Erik, The (Viking) Spaceman.

Because, as his archaeologist Dad knows, this is what really happens in the field.


Erik Rocks Out.

Illustration Friday: Whiskers


I love getting to use this image for Illustration friday, mainly because it still makes me giggle.

We have a little persian rug in our hallway, and our mad grey and white cat, Kalimah, just loves being pulled around the room on it. I like to imagine that this is how she sees herself when we play this game.

This image is available on a whide range of products in my Zazzle store, Lee Lee and the Bee. 

New wallpapers now available at my spoonflower shop!

New wedding range: Rockabilly Wedding

I made this design for the wedding of a wonderful friend of mine, in fact, it's her wedding dress that features on the cute bride depicted here. I had great fun making it, and was really pleased with the outcome. The simplicity and cuteness of it really makes me want to try my hand at more in the same vein.

This range is completely customizable, right down to each individual element. Don't like the stars? Remove them! want the background colour to suit your wedding theme? Change it! It's as simple as clicking 'CUSTOMIZE IT' on the Zazzle product page!

Make it unique, make it yours!

Illustration Friday: Bounce

I must admit, when I saw the title of this week's Illustration Friday theme, 'Bounce',  I giggled with glee, because it meant I could use one of my favourite silly zombie images. I made this one back in 2010, and it still makes me smile every time I looks at it. BOUNCING ZOMBIES!!!!

Illustration Friday: "Space"



I had quite a bit of fun doing this.

Mainly because I'm a space nerd and always have been. But also because after being asked to recolour one of my older Kokeshi designs the other day for a friend, Kokeshi Dolls were back on my mind, so this gave me a chance to space one up. 

Hopefully someday, I'll find the time to get this cute little one up for sale about the place as well, for now though, she'll just be here gazing at the majesty of the universe.

Illustration Friday: "Secret"

If you are like me, and you've chosen a vegetarian lifestyle, people often ask you 'Why'?

Often, this question is shot with a note of derision in their voice and a smug smirk on their face even as you calmly explain your reasons for not wanting to stick the rotting flesh of another living creature into your gaping maw. After hearing about this decision, which for me often includes the point that I do not wish to cause harm to animals, these people will often trot out the 'genius' argument "But what about vegetables?? What if they have feelings?"

I tend to get sick of this idiocy, so I like to fire back with some idiocy of my own. Usually along the lines of explaining to them that there is a massive conspiracy amongst the vegetables of the world to take over and enslave the human race, "Especially the potatoes." I say "Potatoes are bastards!"

This week's Illustration Friday topic 'Secret', therefore prompted me to go back an visit an old illustration idea I had that revels this vegetable conspiracy. So I give you "Plotting Potatoes".
