Simple Wild Garlic Sketch: Changing This Post and My Mind (Again)



Hello there

Yes, technically am not blogging this week. But wanted to see how you are. And so, came here yesterday, first of all thinking that I was going to be telling you about one thing (social media), and then, in a complete turnaround on waking up this morning, had an enormous vibe just to present you with the simplicity of a pretty sketch.

So, without further ado, here's some wild garlic in digital watercolour:

And then I noticed how nice it looked in the shop:

As a transparent sticker that you can use to jazz up cards, laptops, and even water bottles:



And on everything else from phone cases:

To coasters...

Tune in for the next, proper post, for the background on this and (hopefully) more spring art.

In the meantime, I hope these bring a breath of spring to you, wherever and whenever you're reading this.

Thanks so much for being here, and have a lovely week.

More soon.

Hello there

Hope life is treating you well right now. And, either late for last week, or early for this one, but just in time for spring's arrival this week, is a fun little daffodil for whom spring has most definitely sprung on its leaves. (Digital line and wash watercolour in Rebelle 7 and Krita 5).

(And yes, I know it isn't spring everywhere, and if that's the case for you, please look here instead ;-) ).

Feel like spreading some springtime joy?

If you'd like to use this illustration in your own personal blog or on social media, you're most welcome to do so (download instructions are under the main image, above). If you us eit, please keep the watermark on it. Any further links or credit back to Clare Walker, BoundingSquirrel.com is always lovely, but never required.

If you fancy spreading some springtime joy a little further with this cheery daffodil, will just share that am finding it particularly cute on postcards and  pins/badges  in my Redbubble shop.

Image is a photo of a pin badge bearing the same daffodil design described in the last image.

available on Redbubble.

And with that, I'll leave you to your week. 

Have a good one-more soon.
