more sleeping...

These are some images I've been working on for my little project about infant sleep. I want it to be something other parent's can relate to.These images look pretty cosy but I also want to address difficulties like how hard it is sometimes to settle your baby and whether or not to co-sleep..more images to come soon!

These are all done in Parker Quink.

Sleeping like a baby (not for long then..)

I do a lot of drawings of Ez sleeping. Mainly because thats the quietest, most relaxing time of the day: nap time. I love drawing him playing too but theres something lovely about getting my sketchbook out and concentrating on his peaceful dreaming face. And I've been looking over all the different ones I've done, and they really are different, even though they are of the same thing. But actually, I don't think they are, each scene is unique...

Thinking of making it into a little project (feel like I need one) and making a series or book of images based on Ezra's sleeptime. After all, anyone who's ever had a baby knows how big an issue sleep can be!

Keeping watch

 New painting of Todd in one of his favourite places. Perfect to bark at any passers by! I wanted it to look a bit like the painting below which I did a couple of years ago. In the end,I guess they look pretty different. Maybe I was in a darker mood back then...
