Hello and welcome  I'm Clare, (a.k.a. BoundingSquirrel) and every week or so, I post a round up of the art, news, sketches, and work-in-progress around these parts.

Think of it as a peek into someone else's sketch book each week. (If that sounds fun, you can follow BoundingSquirrel at this link).

The "What?"

Sometimes, you'll also get details,  and pics of the things into which they turn (art prints, cards, gifts, home decor etc) too.

The "How?"

Most of my designs involve some kind of watercolour (I know, I know, watercolor, if you're in the US  ;-) ) and pen process. That process can be traditional, digital (stroke-by-stroke painting with a digital pen on a Wacom tablet) or a combination of the two. 

Every so often, you can download and send or some of the images in your own projects for free, too, if you'd like. 

The "Why?"

I'm told that what links all my designs is a sense of whimsy, and if  that's so for you too, that delights me. Let BoundingSquirrel be your place to step into some joy.

If all of this sounds fun to you, please do click or tap here to follow the BoundingSquirrel blog by email (or however suits you).

Why "BoundingSquirrel"?

Reasonably enough, people also often ask why a site sharing art and illustrations should be  called BoundingSquirrel. And for the most part, the answer's simple.  I love squirrels, and find the feeling of freedom that I get whilst creating art (and hope to transmit in everything I produce too) to be as happy and full of "bounce," as a bounding squirrel.

The "Where?"

If you like what you're seeing, please do browse and buy my designs on all sorts of lovely things here.
