'heart of gold'

hello strangers, i'm here again. let's see if i can keep this up a little better then the last time!
i'm also now on instergram --> miss.t.reidy

so without further ado, may i present miss honey. 

she is an ball jointed doll, but specifically based on the beauties created by the oh so multi talented Marina Bychkova over at Enchanted Doll. her work is breathtaking, beautiful and a little bit weird - in the very best way!

this is the more detailed version i painted of the chest piece, the honeycomb 'heart of gold'. 
and so this is my entry for the contest to design a tattoo, for the chance to win one of Marina's beautiful ladies!
i have everything crossed!

hydrobloom show!

i was invited to take part in an exhibition/happening called 'hydrobloom' by the group 
the title is about a large group of jellyfish a 'bloom'.

...and here's my little offering :)

painted paper and tracing paper cuts, mounted in box frames like little jelly girl 

i really enjoyed making these little ladies and even went to the trouble of painting their bodies with patturns that would be hidden by their dresses... so here they are in a state of undress! oh my i hear you cry!

also exhibiting at the event was my friend Sylvaine, a very talented jeweller and illustrator, check out her website, it's full of beautifull whimsical things!

 i love these ink blot elaberations that she created! so fun!

long time no blog!

hello hello and a happy new year!
i've been a touch busy for the past several months and sadly not on arty things... till now! and there will be another post today about said arty things, but first i wanted to finally get these photos up because i lost the camera after taking them, and have only recently found it again!

this is the bundle i receved from the super talented and amazing Mall, who created 101 ACEO cards, two of which i managed to claim as my own! i love them so, so much! i am crossing my fingers that she will take up the aceo challange again this year and i can get my hands on some more tiny jems! 
this is mall's blog entry about her card sale, there are so many beauties! 

so far i've only managed to find the perfect frame for the little devil girl, and am sadly still looking for one for the amazing fluffy cat..  but here she is in situe with other assorted items on my sideboard, she judges us as we sit on the sofa opposite.

 other lovely arts here are 'my little pan-dimensional overlord' by the wonderful Petting Zoo and 'scriptorium' by the awesome Herman Inclusus!

harry's quilt.

hello, long time no post, i am bad at this blogging lark, so i do appologise.

rather different from my useual work, but i was feeling nostalgic and remembered an odd program i used to watch, called 'the brollys'. having rewatched a couple of episodes on youtube it is very much slower and odder than i remembered, but that's nostalger for you!
anyway, here is harry with his toys elepant and hippo, dreaming away under the 
embroydered weather quilt, sleep well!

the last instalment of london fashion week with amelia's magazine.

as the last of the london fashion week reviews go up over at Amelia's Magazine i thought i'd post the close-ups of the last three articles i drew for, and take the opportunity to thank Alia Gargum, Matt Bramford and Amelia Gregory herself for being so kind as too give me such wonderful photos to draw from and being so lovely to work for. all three have given me a real boost in confidence :) though i think everyone covering lfw is well deserving of some serious rest and relaxation after putting in such crazy hours!

in Amelia's review of Felder Felder here i was particularly 
pleased with the hand and legs!

Matt Bromford sent me images from the Jayne Pierson show here where fashion models were replaced with real ballet dancers from The Royal Ballet!

they were really tricky to draw, but oh the muscle tone!! so incredible!

and lastly one more for Amelia's review of the magical Carlotta Actis Barone collection here

everyone thank you and i hope to work with you again!
