July 2018 BuJo

Angela Porter July 2018 BuJo Spread watermarked

Can you believe that June is nearly over? Time seems to be flying at the moment!

I’ve designed the front page for July in my BuJo, and here it is – a dangle design for the month. I felt the need to add words/phrases that epitomise July for me.

The rest of my BuJo is likely to be very plain and simple this month, and done in a Fauxdori rather than an A5 Leuchtturm as an experiment.

Imagination

A little drawing for today, including some iridescent paint.

Imagination is important. Einstein said, “Logic can take you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

My art is often imaginative, nearly always intuitive, and this is an example of both.

Monday motivation

Today has been a quiet day where I’ve spent time playing with colour and pattern. These are some of the results.

I’ve not finished added patterns to the ‘Colourful’ design. The other two I’ve left just as patterns in colour. I like both styles, though it is hard for me not to go to town with entangled embellishments!

I did do another drawing, while having some tea at the Garwnant Centre in a forest at the edge of the Brecon Beacons. It’s in a sketchbook and a bit wibbly wobbly. It was a nice place, a nice way to spend an hour or so, somewhere a bit different.

More artsy busy-ness

I’ve been busy today with artsy pursuits. These are the fruits of my labours this afternoon and evening.

Practicing hand lettering, drawing with pen on paper and colouring too. All good fun.

A little cattitude

A couple of quick (ish) drawings of kitties, the first I’ve done since I said goodbye to my companion puss of 16 years a few weeks ago. So, they’re both white as he was pure white.

Often, all anyone would see of him was his backside while I was Skype-ing with them.  Sometimes his cute pink nose pressed up to the screen.

He sure left a lot of deep paw prints of love on my heart. He was one unique kittycat for sure.

Dangle Day Saturday

Angela Porter 16 June 2018 Dangle watermarked

Today I finished the editing for Entangled Butterflies; all I have to do is complete the coloured images when we’ve decided which ones are to be coloured.

I haven’t drawn a dangle design for a little while, so thought I’d combine my hand lettering of quotes and inspirational words with a dangle (or five). And here it is.

My book, ‘A Dangle A Day’ is available for preorder now. It shows you how you too can draw this type of dangle!

Your heart is a mosaic…

Angela Porter 15 June 2018 watermarked

I’m trying out ideas for making use of hand-lettered quotes with my kind of entangled art. This is today’s offering, and it’s part of my #fridayfeeling and #weekendvibes.

It’s unusual for me to leave so much white space in a drawing/illustration.

I used Towmbow Dual Brush Pens with a blender pen to colour the mosaic sections.
