Super SMASH Bros! Easter egg decoration

While I was busy eating chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday, I noticed that Nintendo were running a competition on their Nintendo 3DS UK Facebook page to decorate a Nintendo-themed egg with the chance to win a Limited Edition Yoshi's Island 3DS XL. So I decided to give it a go and went off and bought half a dozen eggs and got painting!

I painted egg-shaped versions of Mega Man, Samus Aran from Metroid, The Villager from Animal Crossing and Link from The Legend of Zelda series, all of whom are playable characters in the upcoming Super Smash Bros game.

And as they were eggs, I decided that the "Smash" in Super Smash Bros should probably be literal! Poor Link...!

Happy Birthday Saul!

Today was my friend Saul's birthday. Saul really likes My Little Pony so I drew him as a pony. (Coincidentally, my friend Anna also drew a VERY similar card...).

Happy Birthday Shirlene!

It was my friend Shirlene's birthday the other day, and here's a card I made for her, based on an illustration she produced for the Redheads Matchbox contest...

Sketches from my sketchbook

I've been trying to do more sketching while I'm out recently, and carrying a small sketchbook around with me in my pocket. Here are a couple of sketches I drew on the train, as well as a few from The Chorus Festival Weekend at the Southbank Centre today...

Happy Birthday Coni!

It's my friend Coni's birthday tomorrow - April Fool's Day! - and she went out for drinks on Saturday night to celebrate. Coni is a really good cook and is often posting photos of her cooking, but one thing she likes to cook with that I really dislike is nattō!

I drew a card for her birthday with a picture of Coni and one of her recent dishes, poached egg with nattō on toast!

Happy Birthday Alyana!

It was my friend Alyana's birthday the other week. Here's a card I drew for her...
