WIN a Scribble Doodle book!

Doodled Amy Slatem (c) 2016

It’s small, it fits into your handbag or back pocket, just needs a pen or pencil and some imagination. 

Scribble Doodles is the procrastinator’s perfect pocket book. Filled with 40 pages of creativity-starters and doodle platforms, this little book will keep you busy and offer the perfect distraction when you probably should be doing or paying attention to something else…

Each “activity” is based on a scribble which you draw onto, into, over, under, tippex on, paint, scratch out, write on or just colour in to create new creatures, constructions or mindless pen-wonderings.
At the start of April I’ll be giving away 2 copies of this little gem, one to a chosen Facebook fan, and one to an Instagram fan.

Living Room

Sunday, 17 August 2014:  Between some live music and craft beer, I found a chance to do a quick drawing of my scenery this afternoon: The Living Room – a vibey bar on a roof top in Moboneng, Joburg, charmingly decorated with hanging succulents, drift wood and many pot plants. Once I got home (to my own living room) I photographed the drawing along with my fresh Polaroid taken by my talented camera collector friend, Alex.

Hey, Hoopoe?

HoepooI love hoopoes, I think they’re the sweetest little birds and always seem to travel in pairs (awww). I played around with the detail images as gifs and process stages to share the development of my latest illustration from pen to digital colouring.
