Here is a little freebie from me to you. One of the great things about the lockdown is that for the first time every I have had the time to do an appropriate illustration Star Wars fan girl here from way back aaaaand I had a lisp as a kid 😉 Just click on The Child / Baby Yoda and it will take you to my Ko-Fi site. It appears to be less involved than doing downloads from my website. Print it out as is or have fun colouring it in.
I have fun drawing it, it is a continuous line drawing. The Child really could do with some shading of his eyes as they are looking more like Yodas, but that is up to you. Should you like some tips on how to use coloured pencils, you can check out a prior post here. Please note that as the artist I still retain the copyright. I hope you enjoy x
In honour of Waitangi Day on Monday, here is a little surprise for you!
20% off every purchase NZ $29.00 (that equates to approx US$21.00 or 16 pounds) or more using the code ‘Waitangi’ at either my website, Felt or Etsy stores. To use the code on my website, enter it at the very last stages of paypal’s checkout process. It is a little like playing chicken.
Oh and a free hand gilded item with every fine art giclee print purchased. Ranging from a hand gilded in copper or gold gift card, to a greeting card to a gorgeous love inspired illustration. Please state whether you would prefer copper or gold at checkout x
Some of the freebies that went off to their new homes with orders today. Hand gilded the traditional way using size, gold / copper leaf, patience and a bit of elbow grease. The cards are available for purchase separately here too.
Today the unthinkable happened, who would have thought that The Simpsons could have been so prophetic. I was unable to make it to our Women’s March held here in Auckland but I wanted to demonstrate my solidarity for all folk who are going to be affected by the inauguration of President Trump. The result was this colouring page which I intended to be a freebie for you to colour as you wish. However I do think that the cat wants it’s hat to be pink.
You can download it from either my website ellaquaint for free! If you have any issues you can message me and I can send you the full sized file or you get it via my etsy store ellacute for a token gesture amount (at 25c it covers the listing and sale fee).
Colouring is said to be excellent for mindfulness, a technique that helps easy worry or anxiety. I have to admit that drawing colouring pages has a calming effect on me. An insightful thought by Matt Haig . . . ‘to be calm becomes a revolutionary act.’ Please enjoy this token of my passive resistance. When times like this happen it is important that we stand together and let the powers that be know that we are watching and we are judging. Kia kaha (stand strong) you fabulous folk in the U.S who are making a stand against that ridiculous man and all that he represents.
Footage that I have seen of the turn out has been so inspiring and I get the sense that this is only the beginning. Thanks to Sway-rey for sharing this amazing clip of the phenomenal turn out across the US.
The hat pattern that inspired the had that this wee kitty is wearing is sourced from the wonderful Ravelry and is by Destiny Meyer.
