i HEART you...

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

So yea i know Valentines Day was yesterday and my post is a day late..but me and Dave aren't celebrating it until this weekend when we head up to the coast..so Im not sick of hearts and pink stuff just yet..even have my nails are painted barry m glittery red..
I know alot of people hate Valentines day its corny and a rip off but I still love the corniness
of it..anyways its what you make of it..Dave has offered to cook for me all weekend which I cant wait for! :) Hope you all had a good day yesterday! x








On a previous certain controversial post a lot of guys asked to see some of illustrations and drawings..Im really shy about this..my skills are so rusty after not picking up a pencil in years but hopefully with practise ill get better.. Here's one little sketch I did recently.. I had to take a photo of it because i don't have an A3 scanner. Hope you like it..
The bottom appears to be cut off she was running bare foot through grass and red flowers..lol.
Now I have a favour to ask you guys, tomorrow Im working with a Northern Ireland Tv channel on a documentary about Irish blogs, they have asked if maybe some of my followers would contribute too? What you would have to do is email me a 30 second or less video of yourself saying why you like my blog & my style & if its influenced your style at all.
They need the videos by Thursday so not much notice I'm afraid, they dont need to be great quality just webcam is fine.
For more details or to send me a video email me at: the.magpiegirl@gmail.com
I would really appreciate it! xo

  2. Your illustration is beautiful, especially the balloons and rosy cheeks, I always think illustrations are a very personal thing, and portray a lot more quirks than life drawing.
    Good luck with your documentary xx

  14. It seems it's now the done thing to hate Valentine's Day, and people feel embarrassed about enjoying it. You shouldn't! Winter is grey enough without turning on every tiny celebration for being too commercial.

    Good luck with your documentary-making!
