COCOSKIES | An art blog: April 2012

Painting done using gouache paint.
Hello everyone, it's been so long since I last posted! How are you all? Today I felt like I needed a break from Uni work so I decided to paint something. A while back I did a painting of Lily Donaldson in black and white and I really liked how it turned out so I decided to paint another. Also, not sure if you've had a look but I've added a links page. Please check out the people on there, their blogs are amazing!


A painting for my dad

From top to bottom:

Watercolour painting for my dad, A2 map, Sukie Agenda book and a pencilcase (All from Paperchase).

I don't usually paint things like this but it was for my dad. He's been asking for a painting for a while and I promised I'd do it if he gave me a lift to work when it snowed haha. So here it is.

I also popped into Paperchase the other day. I ended up buying a world map poster because a touch of wanderlust is just what I needed in my day-to-day life. I thought it would make a nice background for blog photos too. I also picked up this Sukie Agenda book because it just looked so bright and colourful compared to my plain, grown-up diary. Luckily it's undated so I can save it for next year. And finally I picked up this cute little pencil case in an attempt to get more organised for this last leg of the year.



My dad found this at a charity shop for about £2.00. I really like it! It's good for storing euros and jewellery in.


Hi everyone, hope you like the sketches! You probably knew this already but Biro is one of my favourite things to draw in simply because of its versatility - not to mention its ability to scan so nicely. In other news, I made a hellocotton the other day so if it's easier for you, you can follow me on there.

This illustration was made for the beautiful Becky at Milkbubbletea. Her blog is so pretty, she takes the loveliest pictures! It took me ages to get round to making this but I'm glad I finally did it. I really like how it's turned out, it almost reminds me of Alice in Wonderland!

I also found this the other day. It must have been from about 2 years ago? I think I was going through an Audrey Kawasaki phase. She's amazing!

Note to self: Must post Paris photos!
