I haven’t been drawing much lately but I posted some of my recent drawings on my Facebook page and on Instagram though I failed to post them here.
Over the holiday season I created a series of twelve drawings for advent based on names of Jesus. Please check out the album and leave a comment or feedback. I would really appreciate it.
In the new year I decided to use those images to create a mini calendar. I added a scripture verse with the name to correspond with the images and added the calendar for the month underneath. Did you notice I started the week with Monday and the weekend at the end?! I like to see the two days of the weekend together. 🙂
The card measures only 4″X6″(post card size) and is easy to hang on a string or garland with clips or simply pin one page at a time to your notice board.
Here are a few more glimpses of it:
This was the first time ever that I made calendar but I enjoyed the process. I did have a few brainwaves in the process and I will keep these ideas on hand next time I work on a calendar.
Last year I started a project to illustrate Hindi alphabets. Having looked at the numerous and beautifully illustrated english alphabet books for pre-schoolers, I thought it would be nice to do the alphabet series myself. My daughter loves animal pictures so I set off with theme of incorporating cute land & sea animals, birds and nature into the drawings.
I gave myself a time frame but I got delayed. 10 months have gone by and finally, FINALLY this project is now complete. I have posted some progress images of this project here , here and here. In case you are not following my Facebook page, you may have missed out some of the illustrations I did so here is a compiled image of all the letters of the Hindi alphabet:
My client (my daughter) is very happy with the outcome and I am happy she is happy. I intend to refine it a bit more, put in some proper Hindi font (instead of my own handwriting) and create a wall poster for the children’s room but that will have to wait a little while longer. I will keep you posted.
I began designing fabrics to place reminders of faith and hope in family heritage quilts I aspired to make. It amazes me when phrases of scripture appear in unexpected places and encourage me. This blog presents my fabric collections, sources of inspiration, birthday cakes, quilting ideas, quilts and mini patterns, special events - musings!
