The thoughts and works of a caffeine addicted artist!

I spent a few moments on Scribbler this morning and created a 3 minute self portrait before dashing out of the door for the school run. When I returned I decided to try a shoe from imagination and then gave it a backdrop in my paint program.
Scribbler is such fun to play with, I tried it briefly before Christmas too and created these from imagination:
The only downfall is you have to draw with your mouse...This is not an easy task! I'd love to have a pen shaped mouse to draw with for this sort of program.
I also designed and ordered a new mouse mat from http://www.mymousemat.com/ today and uploaded the sketch below for the design, my old one is more than a little weathered.
My handmade sketchbook from Kala arrived a couple of days ago and looks amazing! You can see photographs of it over at Kala's Etsy shop. I had originally ordered it as a smaller sketchbook to my Canson journal to pop into my handbag but I'm afraid it became far too precious for such rough treatment the moment I set eyes on it so I am setting it aside until it either becomes less precious or I think of some special project for it.
