Canvas print with me for scale

Is this picture real?

The digital sketches of my Cat-of-the-Day blog mostly only exist in electronic form – I have printed cards, I have a couple of collections featuring in calendars for next year and I have printed and framed a few, but on the whole I’ve never seen them other than on a screen. So I am rather excited about this huge print that I have just had delivered. For a drawing for which I have no ‘original’ to sell, since it is all created on a digital screen, this elevates the picture to – not an original – but to a rather…

The Year of the Cat - a calendar for 2016 by Nancy Farmer

One year, two calendars: Cats & Swimming for 2016.

This is the blushing bride, surrounded by her hen party all as imaginary bridesmaids, all in fantastically awful pudding bridesmaids dresses (there was a back story here but I think the idea stands on its own without it). I had a photo of each of the girls, and…

Somerset Arts Weeks: 3rd – 18th October, 2015

“Swept Away” I shall be taking part once more in Somerset Arts weeks, however  there will be a change to the usual nature of things… “Normal service is interrupted: Nancy has gone swimming, and returned with sketches and scribbles both humorous and evocative, of a year spent jumping into cold water, through summer and winter. In anticipation of SAW’s theme of Momentum, she didn’t stop, even in February. Digital drawings created from memory and imagination, without the aid of a waterproof camera. Fairies will also be available, but this is the year of the mermaid.” Opening times: Wednesdays – Sundays,…
