One month has passed since I started the #The100DayProject and it is slightly harder than I first thought. OK I lie, I knew it wouldn’t be that easy. I don’t stay home every night, sometimes I get back to my flat late from work and have other work to do – so forcing myself to draw in this sketchbook can be tough! But that’s the challenge and I’m enjoying it. I’ve had a few slip ups but the main thing is I’ve been keeping up, so I’ll hopefully complete my 100 drawings in no time!
Follow me on Instagram here if you would like to keep up with my #100DaysOfSketchbook project.
I’m also going to Istanbul at the end of the week so you’ll see photos from there on my Instagram too! (SO EXCITED!)
P.S Sorry if my blog is looking a bit weird right now or there are little bugs. WordPress updates have not been great lately and me and Henry (aka boyfriend web master pro) have been so busy we’ve not had time to fix them. That related posts plugin is painful right now but proving not as easy to fix as time allows, AND we’re moving my blog over to a new server which is a ~priority right now~ . Ooof, seriously riveting stuff guys.
The Horniman Museum in Forest Hill is a treasure trove of taxidermy, natural history and Wes Anderson style colour schemes! I love the baby pink they use everywhere, against the type – it’s perfect. It’s also an amazing place to sit and draw, it’s not super busy in there (I think it’s a bit of a London secret) and it’s got super good lighting. You’ll also find large gardens outside the building, a conservatory and a mini farm there – which is so nice in the sun. Great for an afternoon picnic after exploring the inside of the museum!
If this is your kinda thing then it’s well worth a visit and not as far from central as it seems. You can hop on the Overground from Shoreditch or Dalston, which takes around 20 minutes.
I decided that I would have a go at #The100DayProject a couple of days ago. My project is 100 days of using a sketchbook. The main reason being, is that I’m a little non committal with them! I buy loads, use them a lot at first and then end up with 100’s of half full ones… (you should see under my desk). Anyway, I thought this would push me to draw in the same one every single day. It’s also been a while since I did any ‘personal’ work – just for me, for fun. It’s nice to make time to draw whatever I fancy.
You can follow me on Instagram here where I am posting daily!
Please let me know if you are taking part and link me to your social accounts if you are :)

Recently I drew this portrait for Heasoo, sadly her dog Zola passed away recently so she wanted a picture of them both. Heasoo also runs the amazing Korean online store Oops! My Dog which is a super cute place to buy canine related items if you are a giant dog lover based in South korea!

I am a huge homemaker. I would probably spend all day in my flat if I could (probs best I don’t though..). I love being alone to make my own fun and can spend all day drawing, cooking and reading tons of blogs, oh and napping… ooops. I’m not massively anti-social though – I promise.
Ugg Australia got in touch and asked me for some tips on how to start illustrating from home (as well as a couple of other bloggers), to give a little inspiration for their customers during their Feels Like Home campaign. You can check out the illustration tips I gave them on their site here, as well as the other blogger’s ideas for some fun projects this winter.
When the weather is worse, what are you going to be getting up to?
