I am pleased with progress for November. Commissions continue to come in. Three have been completed so far, and another has just been started.
Featured image is a previous commission, Black Rose. Well it is Black Friday.
There are other tasks which I hope to get time to work on – a new web page for Pen and Lens Artwork (we already have the domain name), a publicity sample for my rubber stamps (available through Chocolate Baroque), and start work on designs for cards.
The release of a second set of stamps gets ever closer!
Julie is working on cards for her colour therapy healing, and colour healing journals, as well as her flatlay photos. So there is plenty to do.
In the mean time check out Julie’s Instagram page @juliemoo1960 and my Instagram page @kpm.illustration (and @the_scratchypen for coloured works).
And if you would like to discuss a commission please contact me at email@example.com
With the success of the first set of crafting stamps, we realised it was time to make things official. So we set up our business – Pen and Lens Artwork Ltd. I’m the pen, Julie is the lens.
What we do is simple enough. Julie is a dab hand with the camera and captures images wherever she goes. These images are used either for her flowers, flatlays, or affirmation cards, or her colour therapy / psychology requirements, or by me to create the quirky houses seen on this web site.
She will also visit the site of commissioned work to record the detail for me to create a caricature of a house – so I can expose the inner character of what is sometimes a bland piece of architecture.
Summer seems to have arrived now, and it is good to work in the studio with loads of natural light.
Interest in my artwork is increasing. There are one-off commissioned pieces, and interest by a decorative rubber stamp manufacturer, and this week I have been asked to provide illustrations for a poetry anthology being written in Australia.
So, not only is the weather looking bright, but also – as the very old TV advert said – is the future.
I am always open to offers, and if you want a picture of your house, or shed, or whatever, that is not quite true to life, but conveys the soul within, please get in touch. firstname.lastname@example.org will do it.
