One Sketch a Day

July 31st - August 11th

I’ve been pretty rubbish at scanning and uploading these! I’ve been working a daft amount of hours recently so the quality has suffered too

The weathers been so rainy recently, and I had today off and may or may not have been hungover; so spent all day in bed watching Breaking Bad (almost finished season 3)I started to feel Christmassy so did some drawings for Christmas card ideas. I always start Christmas stuff too late so I need to be on the ball this year; especially if I end up with a daft amount of hours at my retail job from October onwards. Working in retail around Christmas is bad, this will be my 5th year doing it, eugh.

A custom piece that I did this week!
It’s for a Friends Grandma whose sister had a similar bracelet that she always liked. I didn’t have a photograph of the original bracelet to go on, just a description that it had photos of different buildings inside beads like the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty.
I googled other famous buildings for ideas and did tiny drawings that I could scan to make even tinier for the bracelet (each bead is 18x18mm, just under 2 cm)
It was fun to do a piece of Jewellery, not done anything like this in so long!

Toe hanging out on my bed while I draw.

He/she has a stump for a tail because it’s dad plucked it’s chest, back & tail so that he could line the nest with the feathers. Fortunately they’re growing back now

Throwback Thursday: Not a drawing but when I clicked ‘random’ at the bottom of my blog this post came up and I couldnt resist reblogging it. Look how cute my baby looks! He’s all grown up now with beautiful ginger cheeks. I’m tempted to get him a girlfriend, but him and his Dad (unfortunately his mum Audrey died) are really noisy as it is

One Sketch a Day
July 27th - July 30th
27th - Saw Peggy Sue at Sheffield Cathedral as part of Tramlines. We were sat on a cold hard floor in a very warm Cathedral but it was worth it, they were amazing! 
28th - Always nostalgic for Paris
29th - Armadillos
30th - I’m 5 foot 1, so when I find a jumpsuit that fits its a big day for me

I recently got asked to draw up a black and white version of a Tea-wok like what I used to sell before I started adding colour to pieces

The top one is the recent custom order, I think the design has definitely improved since my first ever Tea-wok in the bottom image!

You can buy a Tea-wok tea bag tidy with a green or red hood here:

or if you’d like a black & white one just email me! cmcgannillustration@live.co.uk or message me through Etsy

I am currently drawing up what may be the LAST EVER R2-TEA-2 Tea for One teapot, as I can’t find plain white Tea for Ones anywhere anymore

Edward is very kindly wiping his nose all over my top, and panting everywhere while I try to do this. I must have erased most of the design and redrawn it about 3 times because he keeps nudging my arms to get my attention
