I have been rereading the Harry Potter books over the last year or so but recently I have been reading more often! I'm on The Order of the Pheonix at the moment! I've missed reading. . . . #art #harrypotter #books #reading #orderofthephoenix #potterhead #illustration #drawing #webcomics #comics #cosy #trendingupwardscomic #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #drawingoftheday #comic #webcomic #drawing #sketchbook #sketch #hobby #fantasy #fun #chibi #cute #smidgeartcafe #quickdoodle #doodle #dailylife
Today I have been attempting to make trains out of coffee stirrers and glue. I have managed to make three blocks that tomorrow will be carved! And I made a lot of mess! Who would have though glue was sticky?! . . . #art #glue #hobby #wood #woodworking #train #cute #chibi #chibicharacter #toymaking #comic #webcomic #comics #ootd #purple #sketchbook #illustration #sketch #illustrationoftheday #inking #handmade #traditionalart #funny #excitement #drawingoftheday #dailydrawing #relatable #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe

I started feeling dizzy and sick earlier this evening, luckily I managed to doodle this before it got too bad. But now I'm going to have a very early night and hope that it passes! . . . #art #dizzy #lightheaded #doodle #chibi #cartoon #webcomic #comic #illustration #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #drawingoftheday #drawing #doodleoftheday #stars #spinning #cute #dailydrawing #dailylife #daily #familylife #funny #relatable #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe #spiral #ink
Today John went and grabbed his fishing stuff from his mum and dad's house. He's gonna head fishing with my dad on Monday. He hasn't been fishing in a long while! . . . #art #fishing #fishinggear #curlyhair #ginger #cute #chibi #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe #webcomic #comic #hobby #fun #mermay #lifting #carrying #comics #webcomics #pen #sketch #sketchbook #gear #supplies #traditionalart #fishingrod #dailydrawing #daily #life #illustrationoftheday #illustrationdaily
After trying needle felting for a bit I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that it's not a hobby I want to continue with. I feel a bit silly admitting that but I wasn't having fun and it was going to be an expensive hobby to keep going and I couldn't get decent quality starting supplies even though they were expensive. I feel stupid having spent money buying a range of things and not using much of it. But I think it would be worse to carry on when I'm not enjoying it. John thinks his mum might like to try needle felting so maybe it wont be a total loss. I'm thinking I might try journalling/bullet journalling. . . . #webcomic #comics #needlefelting #hobby #failure #embarrassed #ashamed #enjoyment #sketch #chibi #cute #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe #monster #illustration #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #drawingoftheday #sad #comic #relatable #traditionalart #sketchbook #dailylife #learning
I spent time sorting buttons by colour and size today. It was really soothing and fun. I'm thinking of using them as wheels for trains. But we shall see! Also! So close to 100 followers! (Thank you all so much!) Can we make it before tomorrow?! . . . #webcomic #comic #button #sketch #organisation #organise #organized #sketchbook #trendingupwardscomic #sketching #doodle #doodleoftheday #sketchoftheday #ink #brushpen #chibi #smidgeartcafe #drrawing #drawingoftheday #illustration #daily #fun #hobby #stressrelief #hormones #relatable #meditation #relaxing #mindfulness
A moment from our walk yesterday. As mentioned John walked off on to the beach, becoming slowed down by the mud and sand at times. Dad tried to get a picture but John was always quick to free himself! . . . #art #walk #beach #comic #webcomic #comics #webcomics #dad #walkingonthebeach #sunny #summer #chibi #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe #family #illustration #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #sketch #sketchbook #ink #brushpen #inking #life #dailylife #exercise #hike #walking #drawingoftheday #drawing
Instagram just would not work for me last night so I'm late posting! Urgs. But I have hopefully fixed the issue!

Happy May! (Where is this year going?!) It's also Mermay so I will be drawing us as merpeeps throughout the month! John has taken to placing his head on my back as we sleep, it's really comforting in an odd way! P.S Over on @smidgeartcafe I'm doing a month long comic about a Mer village so give it a peep! . . . #art #comic #mermay #mermay2018 #mermaid #merman #curlyhair #ginger #sleeping #fish #comics #webcomic #webcomics #watercolour #watercolor #painting #purple #green #orange #yellow #smidgeartcafe #cute #chibi #chibicharacter #resting #tail #illustration #illustrationdaily #drawing #drawingoftheday
I was moving things again! This time John was around and keen for a change too! So we have a new living room arrangement, which actually is a lot better. I'm also attempting to grow my hair so it's a bit shaggy at the moment! . . . . #art #comic #comics #webcomics #webcomic #moving #furniture #chibi #cute #watercolour #watercolor #watercolorpainting #painting #drawingoftheday #drawing #illustration #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #ginger #gingerhair #curlyhair #traditional #dailylife #rearrange #lifting #trendingupwardscomic #smidgeartcafe
A little Outfit of the Day as this is one of my favourites! The T-Shirt has a Junimo from the game Stardew Valley on it.

Sooo I have been struggling a lot with my art the past few weeks. I feel disheartened with my progress and skills and completely unsure about my direction and what I want out of my work. My process for comics is too long and I'm not happy with the way they are going. So I'm gonna take a couple of days off and have a good think about how I want to proceed! I hope that you will stick with me through this transitional period. I promise it will lead to a better result! #webcomic #webcomics #mentalhealth #sketches #wip #artblock #existentialcrisis #art #break #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #pencilsketch
We have a cute little piggy bank where we have saved up money for John's driving. Luckily, it doesn't need to be smashed to get the money out!

Introducing the best spymasters around! On Mother's Day me and my niece Ellie were team captains in a game of Codenames. We played it with my mum and sister. It is a really great game and we had tons of fun!

I really wanted to try the Daniel Smith watercolours so I got the dot cards. (They are sheets of cards with blobs of the watercolour on.) And I'm in love with them. I've only swatched two pages of the colours (there are four), I have to wait until I cute more comic panels. But eventually I'll be switching to Daniel Smith when I can afford to! #danielsmithwatercolors #danielsmith #swatching #watercolours #watercolor #watercolors #webcomic #webcomics #comics #painting #watercolourpainting #watercolorpainting #illustration #daily #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #dailyart #dailylife #art #testing #colour #color #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #dotcard
After failing with Majora's Mask I had a go with the Brain Training. I hadn't done it in years and good lord I'm stupid now! Everything was tough and I get worse each day!

Happy Mother's Day! I don't have kids but I have a lizard! I hope everyone had a wonderful day no matter what you did.

I've been struggling with art over the last few weeks. It's not art block but a losing of skills and abilities that I had a few months ago. My hands don't want to do what I want them to, but I'm trying! #artistproblems #block #mentalhealth #art #artblock #struggles #artiststruggles #watercolor #watercolour #painting #illustration #webcomic #webcomics #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #watercolorpainting #watercolourart #artist #dailyart #dailycomic #comics #stickfigure #comic #paper #dailylife #crumpledpaper #traditionalart
It's British Pie Week! I do love a good pie. I think steak and ale is my favourite! Due to our change in food we haven't had pie in awhile, but I think we might soon. #pie #britishpieweek #pieweek #food #foodie #delicious #deliciousfood #watercolor #watercolour #painting #illustration #webcomic #webcomics #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #watercolorpainting #watercolourart #foodart #dailyart #dailycomic #comic #tastyfood #pastry #crust #dailylife #brown #traditionalart
This is a bit of an exaggeration of how I feed the birds! Over the winter I have been throwing seeds out of our windows on to the roof and into the wooded bit beside us to help the birds through the cold. They seem to appreciate it and it's wonderful for us to see the wildlife so close! #art #webcomic #webcomics #comics #bird #birds #animalart #animalillustration #cute #feedingthebirds #seeds #illustrationoftheday #shorthair #rooftop #watercolour #watercolor #paper #daily #dailylife #lifestyle #funtimes #nature #sliceoflife #relationshipgoals #life #casual #outdoors #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe
During some of the bright days I've been getting migraines. To try and ease the pain I pull my hood over my eyes. Often all I can do is wait for the pain to go away.

I needed more watercolour paper recently so we made a trip to our nearest art type shop which is a Hobbycraft. We always end up wandering up and down looking at all of the crafty things. #art #hobbycraft #shopping #trip #watercolour #watercolor #painting #artsupplies #shoppingday #outing #wandering #illustration #webcomic #wecomics #series #cartoon #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #browsing #dailylife #artistlife #artist #curlyhair #relationship #love #couple #traditionalart #daily
I get bored with the placement of our furniture and when I want a change John is often in work. So since I have no patience I move it all round.

In our last living arrangement there was a park with swings just innfront of us. Sometimes, in the middle of the night, we would go and sit and have some fresh air.

Sometimes I like to head to bed a bit earlier than normal and enjoy an orange Calippo. I'm sure it will be even more lovely and refreshing in the summer! #art #webseries #webcomic #webcomics #calippo #bedtime #ritual #routine #dailylife #daily #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #bed #bedroom #night #watercolor #watercolour #painting #orange #icelolly #food #treat #refreshing #pyjamas #traditional #comic #cartoon #illustration #familylife #funny
Maxi mostly enjoys his baths, he thrashes about and has a drink. He likes being under a running tap! I think he would look very cute in real life wearing water wings. #beardie #beardeddragon #water #bathtime #lizard #cutepet #pet #watercolorpainting #watercolour #watercolor #webcomic #webcomics #animalart #animalillustration #dragon #beardiesofinstagram #bath #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #art #illustration #float #swim #cute #clean #funny #lol #inking #daily #swimming
I hate not know what I want to watch, I can sit there for hours scrolling through Netflix and Youtube. When really I should just listen to podcasts or music!

John is a dunker. I hate soggy foods so I can't do it. One day a biscuit fell in and I said this! Sometimes I just say weird and wacky things without thinking!

VICTORY! A little while ago we played Warhammer and I won! I play skaven (who are just the best little rat) and John played undead (who were rubbish!) It was fun, but as it takes so long to play we don't do it often. #watercolorpainting #watercolour #watercolor #webcomic #webcomics #trendingupwards #warhammer #minitures #wargame #game #boardgame #winner #cute #smidgeartcafe #fun #gaming #defeated #curlyhair #illustration #celebrate #saturday #gamenight #art #artist #painting #inking #undead #rat #skaven

Sooo for the last couple of weeks I have been feeling pretty lethargic, down and just foggy of mind. I realised that I was having a bout of depression. I'm glad to say I'm fighting my way out of it.

Introducing a mini series that will appear at irregular intervals! This series is about the cute and crazy wild life that visit us! First up is Kiki, she is a one legged Pied Wagtail. She has been with us for the whole time we've lived here (eight months). She flies about and hops along our railing.

Sooooo..our Subsistence (homemade Soylent) experiment didn't work out. It was amazing to start with but I couldn't drink more than a few mouthfuls. It made me so ill!

Recently I have been waking John up by leaving Maxi with him. After making a coffee I came back to find Maxi had crawled on his face and settled for a snooze!

We got all the makings for our Soylent ish thing. It was an experiment and we felt like scientists measuring things, altering things and mixing. It was fun making it!

For a couple of weeks now I've been doing basic stretches in the morning and they've really helped with back and arm ache. As the year goes on I will be adding more exercise and stretches to my routine! #art #trendingupwardscomic #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #stretching #morningroutine #morning #dailyexercise #yoga #exercise #workout #watercolorpainting #watercolorart #watercolor #watercolour #watercolourart #painting #illustration #webcomic #webcomics #cartoon #shorthair #progress #splits #drawing #dailylife #familylife #drawingoftheday #daily #fun
John is obsessed with buying new games. We mainly watch gameplay on youtube which is dangerous as John gets this face on asking to buy a new one.

Though I'm not one for clothes shopping I do like wandering around shops when I have the reason, i.e. Christmas, food shopping or to accompany someone else.

While joining me on the table one day, Maxi slipped off and did a flip. Luckily he landed well and ran off! He loves to jump off things, no matter the height.

Over the last few days food cravings have been driving me mad. We are going to be trying a Soylent type meal replacement thing. So hopefully soon I won't be thinking about food at all!

I've had a shaved head for about a year and a half now. It irritates me even if its over half a cm. I cut it all off for convenience and I must say, for me, it's so much better.

Sometimes I need to have a day of sitting on the couch with a hot water bottle and relax. Often I need to be told to do this, I'm learning to allow myself to rest. #art #webcomics #webcomic #cartoon #hoodie #mentalhealth #casual #selfcare #relaxing #trendingupwardscomic #trendingupwards #smidgeartcafe #watercolour #watercolor #painting #cosy #couch #illustration #casualclothes #lounge #traditionalart #relationship #lazyday #love #dailylife #daily #artoftheday
