I had thought of using Andrea Joseph’s charming dog portrait as one of my backgrounds but when I looked at the updates on her blog I decided they were just too lovely to ignore. Her drawing has such delicate grace and flow whilst incorporating an array of varied textures and well observed minutia.

I am way behind on certain presents due to people. But I can tick this one off the list. Made for my wonderful cousin who herself makes magical prints, I wanted to draw something real yet abstract in meaning. Like so many frustrating ideas that get crumpled up, I thought I would use this imagery literally and crushed some paper in order to draw it. That in itself took a little while… one has to get just the right amount of crush and no-crush and an interesting shape to want to draw this for a few hours. Hope she likes it!!! And thank you IKEA for your lovely affordable frames.

This week’s background is by Stacey Nolon. Such delicate detail on such a cute and dignified face.
