Obviously I am very pleased about this not only because I felt that I would be good for the role, but also because it's more hours and better pay. This means that the hubby and I can now feasibly begin to save for a mortgage deposit, rather than rent again. It's going to take us a few years or so to do, but I feel like we have a goal to aim towards now and that we are moving in the right direction to eventually having a family.
The role of the job does mean that I will have to work every Saturday, but I will still get Sunday's off and two full days in the week to draw. So really it will give me the best of both worlds, as having full days off rather than my current half days will mean that I can properly settle and get my teeth into a project from start to finish.
On another note, in amongst all of the business I have managed to get a new illustration done, which is going to be used as thank you notes for my birthday. The image features Bella bunny looking up at a butterfly as you can see below:
The image is taken from a sketch that I did back in 2010 which I have been meaning to work it up into a finished image since. So I thought that using it as a thank you card would be the perfect opportunity.
Back when I did the original sketch I named it Butterfly Dreams, I think because I felt that it was quite a dreamy scene. The image is pretty much the same as in the original sketch I have just updated the face shape, so that it is more in line with the style that I have used in my more recent work. I am pretty pleased with the outcome so now just need to mock it up into a card and it will be done. As always any feedback you may have will be much appreciated.
I hope that you all had a fab weekend, whatever you got up to and that you all have a good week. Thanks for dropping by! x
