I'm Chloe, i'm an illustrator & Craftsperson from the UK.
I love drawing & making things and I am open to commissions or custom orders. Get in touch either through the 'ask' page or email me at cmcgannillustration@live.co.uk

I go away for a week tomorrow so I am busy getting some tea-bag tidys drawn up ready for my Etsy shop re-opening on October the 1st (or 2nd.. depending on how tired/ lazy I feel the day after I get back)
I will also have some Christmas Cards listed too! I am queueing up some posts of these for you to preview over the next week

This is a belated Birthday gift from my friend Emily who makes tiny creatures; a miniature Edward! He was very excited about it

Added some text to my Christmas card designs from last year; these will be getting listed when I get back from my holiday, possibly on the 1st of October

I also have brand new designs in the works which will hopefully be done over the next few days before I go away on Tuesday

Todays task - adding the finishing touches to all of these :)

They will then be getting photographed for the shop which will be reopened later today!

The shop will be closing again on September the 20th until October the 1st as I am on a well earned Holiday :) I am aiming to re-open with Christmas cards and decorations in stock

One Sketch a Day - Monday 1st of September to Monday the 8th of September

Snippets of info about some entries:

Tuesday 2nd: I was staying at the Beaus house this week while his mum was in hospital. Kim the whippet stays there sometimes too so alot of my drawings involve her as she is wonderful; apart from when she got in to the bin a few times and dragged cold teabags and rubbish all over the kitchen floor

Thursday 3rd: Lazy day in just drawing things around me in the house

Friday 5th: Golden Boy Edward (my dog) had a tumour removed (coincidentally the same week that my Beaus Mum had a similar procedure) Both of them are recovering well :)
