Inspired by the super cute superb fairy wren, a bird I see fairly frequently when I visit my parents’ house.
If you enjoy my blog and like my art, please consider purchasing an item from my online art portfolio, flokot.redbubble.com.
I’ve been going through the fairly labour-intensive process of updating my RedBubble portfolio to accommodate their newer ranges of products. When I first joined, it was just art prints and t-shirts. I love their new product ranges, though I have to actively edit each of my artworks to suit the various new products. In many cases I’m really happy with the results. New products like spiral-bound notebooks and scarves have given my drawings a new lease of life.
Technically my art is “just” a hobby. It by no means produces a liveable income – as helpful as that would be (Australia’s complex tax laws aside!). My day job is a stay-at-home-parent, but I am looking to take on my visual arts and writing as more serious pursuits. In particular, my writing is something that I want to develop to a much higher standard. It’s a good way to keep the brain going before the kids are self-sufficiently old enough for me to head back to university. But I am profoundly grateful that so many people seem to enjoy my art, and do so enough to buy items from my RedBubble portfolio. It’s very encouraging and it keeps me motivated to continually work on improving my illustration and painting skills.
Here is a list of some of my newly-updated artworks*:

Some imagined landscape action. And a felt tip marker eagle inspired by a photo in a book about birds.
I recently bought a little notepad from a newsagents – basically, don’t let me anywhere near a stationery store without supervision because I will buy something I probably don’t need. It was meant to be a little shopping list notepad but I found that I love the feel of the pencils on the smooth paper. For a cheap little book it has surprisingly good quality paper, and a lot of it. Here’s some of the results of recent little pencil sketches on that paper. I wasn’t trying too hard to follow any rules. I was just enjoying the texture of the pencils (Derwent Artists and Faber-Castell Classics) on the paper. I wasn’t following a particular theme, either, though some of these came about while I was reading a photographic book about the history of the domestication of farm livestock.

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. God Himself is not secure, having given man dominion over His works! Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. Faith alone defends. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." -Helen Keller
