What I made
While I put the finishing touches to my next craft tutorial (another upcycling project – all you’ll need is an old fork and a good set of muscles) I thought I’d share the above illustration with you. I’ve named it Diaper Sniper, for my U.S. readers, and Nappy Slappy for my U.K. visitors (if you can think of a better rthyme let me know!). I’ve used it to illustrate my About me section, which has been updated (with the aid of my Mother’s editing skills). Here’s a larger version – just in case you want to see more of the ‘sloppy’ details.
Mark Frauenfelder at Boing Boing just pointed me in the direction of Roy Doty – a cartoonist famed for creating beautifully detailed contraptions like this one. I love this sort of illustration – I’ve even had a go myself, check out my Twitter Factory.
What I made
Firstly, apologies for not posting my next craft project – I’m still working on the hand-drawn instructions (they takes ages to draw).
One of the main reasons I’m running behind is because I’ve been updating my blog – as you can see I have added a Featured on page, a Twitter link, a Shopping cart (the shop is coming sometime soon) and last but not least a new What I Made Facebook page with accompanying ‘Like box’ for my blog.
I’ll be treating my Facebook page like a virtual ‘work bench’ – a place where I can share and discuss the techniques and ideas behind my craft projects. So go check it out – and feel free to show your support by clicking ‘like’!
I may not have a new project to offer, but I did recently revamp my out of this world marble run post – it now includes downloadable hand drawn instructions. Why not go check it out?
What I made
I just came across the Illustration Friday website thanks to a post from Claudine Hellmuth (AKA Collageartist). So rather spontaneously I decided to have a crack at creating an illustration for this week’s topic ‘immovable’ – the result is the ‘cement shoes’ illustration above. I hope you like it.
I really like it when craft and illustration come crossover, these lovely wall decals created by Shanna Murray are a good example. They are simple and elegant, with wonderfully positive and uplifting messages – why not go check out here equally elegant blog?
