It has been quite a while since I've done a sketch in my Little Brown Notebook and I decided it was time to get back into it. I'm wanting to do a lot more drawing this year so hopefully this will get the ball rolling! I was feeling particularly nostalgic one day which led to me watching Almost Famous – the movie that inspired this particular sketch. It didn't quite capture the beauty that is Zooey Deschanel but I kinda like it anyway. Once the sketch was done I scanned it in and did some colour work in Photoshop. I think the coloured ones turned out nicer than the original. Here's to an artistic 2013!

So, I've been MIA from the blogging world for a wee while... A true holiday for me means no computer. At all. It's pretty difficult, but also amazingly freeing at the same time. It's a little scary how dependent we become on these screens in front of us. But when you're on a computer all day everyday for work you really do need to say goodbye to the pixels. It just doesn't feel like a holiday otherwise. BUT my lovely husband got me an iPhone for Christmas so I guess from now on I won't be completely detached! This also means that I now have Instagram :)
I'm pretty excited about 2013. There are quite a few things that I'd like to get done this year, but for now I'm pretty content to just soak up the sun! So far, my highlights have included... Wrapping Mums Christmas present in a not-so-subtle way, my husband becoming my hero (literally) when our kayaking trip turned into a little more "adventure" than we bargained for, thickshakes on the beach, reading a couple great books, swims in the ocean, hanging with friends and getting an amazing typewriter from my Grandma... Any one know a place in Hamilton that restores/repairs typewriters?
All the best for 2013 everyone! xx
