ellenstration. #AzureDepths Update⠀
And why I feel like such an idiot🤦🏻‍♀️Read belo

#AzureDepths Update⠀ And why I feel like such an idiot🤦🏻‍♀️Read below👇⠀ Some of you may already know this if you've seen my insta Stories about it⠀ ⠀ I've been working pretty much none stop on my Mermaid themed colouring book called Azure Depths for the past few months now. The plan was to launch the Kickstarter in October to help fund the printing costs of the book⠀ ⠀ After a few hiccups building the Kickstarter, (it kept making my images blurry) I hit the biggest hiccup yet⠀ Verifying me as a human😣⠀ ⠀ To launch a Kickstarter you need to prove to them that you are who you say you are, and not some sort of spam robot alien hybrid ⠀ Normally you can do this with ID, but because I was working so hard the past few months it completely slipped my mind, that my ID ran out and needs to be renewed 🤦🏻‍♀️😭⠀ ⠀ Then cue the last two weeks of October, was me running backwards and forwards to the post office to try and get this sorted out. I swear they make it so difficult on purpose 😂⠀ ⠀ I can't renew it online (the fastest and simplest way) because my passport also needs renewing, so I have to go to the post office in town⠀ ⠀ I get there and I'm told the machine (this super fast booth that takes your photo and fills in the form super quick) was broken and won't be fixed till next week⠀ ⠀ So I go in next week, the machine looks fixed, yay! I queue up to ask the lady how to use it, and I say I need to renew my ID and she hands me an envelope🤨 I ask about the machine and she says I can only use that if my ID expiry date is less than a month old🤦🏻‍♀️⠀ ⠀ It would have been nice to have been told that last time, so now I have to fill in this postal form and it will take 3weeks for me to get a new one😭 Uuuugh⠀ ⠀ I was quickly calculating my timelines, and it will be over the Christmas period which my printers will be closed due to the holiday. ⠀ ⠀ ‼So the plan is now to launch it in January‼⠀ ⠀ 🛍It will be £10 plus postage and ships worldwide⠀ ⠀ 🔗Link in my Bio to sign up for my newsletter to keep up to date and be the first to know when it launches on Kickstarter and there might be limited time goodies when it launches too

Stature of Poseidon's head SWIPE to see which mermaid this goes with, I bet you all can guess without swiping 😁⠀ ⠀ Little Poseidon fact/myth for you⠀ Most people know that Athena is the patron Goddess of Athens but did you know Poseidon was also in competition to be the patron God too?⠀ They each gave Athens' a gift to persuade them to choose, Poseidon struck the ground with his trident and a spring sprang up, but it was salt water and not very useful of the Athenians.⠀ ⠀ Athena won by gifting them an olive tree⠀ ⠀ This page is for my colouring book #AzureDepths launching in October on Kickstarter!!⠀ ⠀ 💌Sign up to my newsletter if you would like to be the first to know when it launches +10% off in my store⠀ (link in bio)⠀ ⠀

Legends tell of some mermaids being vain creatures interested only in jewels and other shiny trinkets. They care little about human life and would happily drown a sailor to get hold of his treasure 💀💎⠀ ⠀ I wanted to explore this side of the myths with this mermaid, she wraps pearls or beads around her tail, her scales are like a mosaic or cut glass and shine and shimmer like the jewels she collects⠀ ⠀ ⠀ This is for my colouring book #AzureDepths launching in October on Kickstarter!!⠀ ⠀ 💌Sign up to my newsletter if you would like to be the first to know when it launches +10% off in my store⠀ (link in bio)⠀ ⠀ --⠀ #mermaidtail #mermaidlove #mermaidlagoon #mermaidlover #mermaidstyle #mermaiding⠀#mermaidsoul #mermaidsofinstagram #mermaidcrown #ilovemermaids #mermaidscales #inktober #inktober2018 #drawlloween #fantasyart #fantasycreature #fantasyartwork #fantasycharacter #fantasydrawing #witchessociety #witchaesthetic #witchystuff #traditionalwitchcraft #modernwitch #witchesofinstagram #witchythings #witchywoman #witchyvibes #witchery

Did you know there is a Chinese myth about a golden koi fish turning into a dragon?🐉 ⠀ One koi was so determined to swim up a waterfall while all others gave up and failed, it kept going and eventually made it to the top! Impressed by its perseverance and determination the Gods transformed it into a beautiful golden dragon, a symbol of power, strength and destiny fulfilled⠀ ⠀ What colour would you choose for this koi?⠀ ⠀ I've always loved the gold ones, mainly because of this story. Who wouldn't want a pre-dragon in their pond?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ This spot illustration to accompany my Koi Fish Mermaid for my colouring book #AzureDepths launching in October on Kickstarter!!⠀ ⠀ 💌Sign up to my newsletter if you would like to be the first to know when it launches +10% off in my store⠀ (link in bio)⠀ --⠀ ⠀ #fantasyartist #fantasyartwork #fantasyillustration #charactersketch #inktober #inktober2018 #drawlloween #drawlloween2018 #creepydrawing #halloweendrawing #lineart #lovetocolor #friendswhocolour #wonderfulcolouring #majesticcolouring #ilovecoloring #colortherapy #creativelycoloring #coloringaddict #witchessociety #witchaesthetic #witchystuff #traditionalwitchcraft #modernwitch #spellwork #conjure #wiccansofinstagram #wiccan #wiccansofig

Which is your favourite, 1,2,3,4?⠀ I love them all for different reasons, with each piece of art I create I try to challenge myself with doing something a little different or practice a thing that didn't go well last time⠀ ⠀ Art is a journey and not every piece you create can be perfect, as a perfectionist it took me a long time to accept this⠀ ⠀ There is not one straight road to your destination, it's winding with many branches and sometimes the path you are heading down gets blocked. You have to backtrack, find a new route. It's not a failure as you've learnt something, it might be as simple as knowing not to go down that path again⠀ ⠀ Each choice, success or failure gets you one step closer to your destination⠀ ⠀ I've seen so many people getting stress or anxiety from #inktober and #drawlloween remember if you do 1 or all 31. You are making steps forward, that is a win in my book, be proud of what you've achieved ⠀ ⠀ --⠀ ⠀ These illustrations are for my colouring book #AzureDepths launching in October on Kickstarter!!⠀ ⠀ 💌Sign up to my newsletter if you would like to be the first to know when it launches +10% off in my store⠀ ⠀ --⠀ ⠀ #illustragram #illustratorsoninstagram #dailyillustration #illustratorlife #sketchdaily #drawlloween2018 #creepydrawing #halloweendrawing #wiccans #greenwitch #magick #metaphysical #witchcoven #lineart #lovetocolor #friendswhocolour #wonderfulcolouring #majesticcolouring #ilovecoloring #mermaidsoul #mermaidsofinstagram #mermaidcrown #ilovemermaids #mermaidscales #adultcolouring #creativelycoloring #coloring_secrets
