New Digital Painting (And a New Idea)

Amazing! I've (finally completed another digital painting that's in line with the season. (Unless you're reading this in June of course).

Anyway, this is "Autumn berries" and in Pixarra Twisted Brush digital oil pastels, as before.

The New Idea...

But what it also represents is the start of a new idea. It started when staring once again at all the tech spread out by The Computer Man in our front room.

The cases for all of it are still pretty plain, despite the fact that decorated laptop, tablet and laptopskins have been around for ages.

So it dawned on me that pretty, small digital-but-traditional designs like mine might look pretty good on tech. Having already been impressed with Zazzle, I've put some designs up to try them out.

So if you'd like to jazz up your tech, or send a phone case as a gift to someone, please hop on over to my Zazzle store.

Cookies (And *Do* Use This Cookie Picture If You Need One)

A friend of mine is convinced that I need a cookie policy. Given that I live in the UK, I know they exist, but thought they were only for humungous sites, and not little efforts powered by the (wonderful) Blogger and similar...

Given that being over-zealous can't do any harm, I've explained mine anyway, here

And it gave me a great chance to make the whole thing feel more appetising for all of us, by attempting a digital painting of real, edible cookies. (Feel free to use it if you need such a cookie graphic and are happy to link back here too).

It's a sad day when a post about something that should be as yummy as cookies has to contain any dullness at all...

Back with more colour soon.

PS. If you or a friend are cookie-minded, you can also buy this as a fun design on gifts like these speakers: Cx

A Completely Different Picture...

Am loathe to post this...It's so completely different, a little weird, and very "messy" unfinished and abstract compared to everything that's gone before. (It's still digital, but a digital acrylic painting, rather than digital pastels).

But the colours of a "Rainbow Autumn", feel jolly, it's useful in order to illustrate another blog (and anyway, I've promised to post every stage in the process here, whether it feels like "progress" or not).

Happy weekend, whatever you're up to.

PS. Update: I ended up calling this "Rainbow Autumn", and it's found its home on colourful gifts like this one:
