I thought it was about time I caught up with you all. As you can imagine it’s been total madness here at Alex Clark Art since we launched our new Stationery and Gift Bag ranges in January, and we’ve had all hands on deck to keep up to date with the orders.
I’ve been promising myself for weeks that when I get a quiet day I’ll get some painting done. Well, I think I could be waiting quite a while for a quiet day! There’s always something keeping us on our toes, but I’ve finally grabbed a chance to sit down and work on new designs. Now that this year’s Christmas cards and next year’s calendar are underway (yes, really!) I’m enjoying playing around with some completely new concepts.
At the moment I’m experimenting with new Cat and Dog designs. They’re often inspired by animals I see around me and people’s pets. I love reading about and seeing pictures of your pets on Facebook and Instagram; it’s nice to know it’s not just me who thinks the world of their pets! I’ve also recently been introduced to Pinterest, through which I’ve discovered a wealth of inspiration I never knew about before! I’ve started collecting images which inspire me and had a good giggle over some brilliant photos of pets doing funny things. My colleagues say it’s only a matter of time before I become a fully fledged Pinterest addict!
I can’t wait to get the new artwork onto products and see
what you think of them. I have so many ideas in the pipeline but can’t reveal
them all just yet!
That’s all for now, thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. I hear Betty’s quite the blogger these days too, maybe I should ask her for tips…?
