Personalised London crafting

image

Last Christmas I made two of these London Routemaster Pillows for my nephews, and this summer I made another two for nephew Levi & niece Madilym who were visiting from Canada. I’m not sure they know what a London buss looks like yet, but they liked them anyways!

image

The buss is pretty big, maybe 50x50cm or more, and it has the name on there obv, the number is the year the kids were born, and London transport is replaced with the family name.

It was lots of fun to make them, but it also took a looong time! I’m working up the courage to start another two or three.

I also made individual London tube signs for the kids, and i did some gender stereotyping by making the girls pink. With Maddy being Canadian, she does not know what the symbol is yet, so i figured she might like it better if it was pink, her favourite colour.

Octopus in SPACE

If you put an octopus in space, they just look like aliens. Im ok with that.

I love those horrible posters you r can get with dolphins leaping threw space with a giant crescent moon behind them and unicorns up their asses. I might make one like that… maybe with worms? or slugs? hmm

Thank you internet for the stars and Photoshop for the oh so classy Lens Flare! You can never have enough Lens Flares in space. Ask Star Trek!

giant octopus

Painted some giant octopuses yesterday while watching tv.

I tried to mirror them but not working yet, might need to add one more. I like the top one, it looks like he knows something.

Doodled a little on the one i did last week too. Might have ruined it… not sure yet.
