Happy First of October! I can't quite believe we are here, the year has gone so so fast. In the last few months I have been working on some sketches for colouring in and so I thought I would create a desktop download that you can print off and colour in if you choose.
My usual style of illustration is very detailed and full so it was a real challenge to adapt my work to allow spaces for colouring. Just like any new challenge I really struggled at the beginning to get my head around the concept and I wasn't enjoying it at all, but with some time I soon got the hang of it - hurray! It was important to me that I still kept the design fresh and interesting, that's what usually motivates me in my normal illustrations.
In the end I was so pleased I did try this new style of illustration, it has actually pushed me to think more about spaces and lines in another way. I still love it when the page is just FULL of details but now I can appreciate the difficulty and patience required in other styles of illustration.
So jump on the colouring train, print and download this desktop to complete the journey, I would love to see your creations so please email them into me. All you need to do is click on the link and save the wallpaper that fits your screen or print out whichever your choose:

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy completing this illustration in your own weird and wonderful way!
