Old Lady & Her Cat

I'm so excited because I have just set up a new shop to sell my handmade goods on Etsy. I haven't listed anything yet, but just getting an account has opened up a new world of discussion forums with DIY crafters from all over the world. It's huge! A bit daunting maybe, but a new challenge that I'm looking forward to.
I have been sketching characters in my sketchbook that I'm also very pleased about. I'm undecided if I want to paint them traditionally or digitally yet, but I'm happy that I'm happy with my work for a change! I've been having many periods of doubt about my illustrations, but I must be going through a positive stage now. I hope it lasts a long time.
There is also a new blog from the "Real Illustrators" discussion forum. Its still in it's fledgling stages with few posts, but hopefully it will grow and grow.

Thanks Pea! But there's not that much on there yet. I'll try and add little bits to it gradually and then have a crack at promoting my shop properly.

Cheers!
