Pen tablet & a puppy

Hi everyone! Hope all is well with you. Here’s what I’ve been up to this past week while my blog has been quiet…

Would you believe that I managed to ‘lose’ my Wacom pen tablet? I hadn’t used it for quite a while. Well I spent about 3 days searching, unpacking cupboards, and silently cursing! Eventually I found it in a cupboard in my bedroom! I guess it was on one of those days when I did a quick tidy up after I had been doodling on it in my room and it ended up being tucked away in a strange place!

I have always struggled to get the results I had hoped for from the minute I bought it about 2 years ago. I simply accepted that I needed more (and more) practice.

I decided there must be another reason… So I used my faithful ol’ Google… Would you believe my problem was sorted out with a quick software upgrade? So now I can draw without looking like I have the shakes and the pen pressure works perfectly!

Long story short, Here’s my latest digi drawing for the September contest over at CDAC – hand drawn on my pen tablet…

I have also been designing some cute party goodies for a friend of mine’s son’s birthday. The party theme is African Safari as we’re going to a game farm nearby for a sleep over. The birthday boy requested this as he wants to play with the little lion cubs.

So the kids get to cuddle with the cubs – they’re gonna love it! (And I will too!) I’m hoping to take some awesome photos of the kids and the cubs as well as the party decor. Will post some pics next week!

Have a great week!
