You would think at my age maybe I should just draw something nicer than toes and tongues and eyeballs, but nope, still obsessed. Still feeding that 8 year old kid in me that loved all those crazy 80s and 90s cartoons with too many ghosts and too many colours. Do what makes you happy!
Who says vampires need to have two fangs? I’ve always loved the vampires that have more toothy pegs. More sharp bits more blood, surely more economical. More blood for the bite? So I’ve been looking at lot at 80s style air brush designs of late so I thought I would reach further into my Proreate brushes and try something new. What do you think?

‘it means if you have any vacation time take it now’ The Real Ghostbusters, still brings me ultimate joy. Now I look at the way it’s drawn, it’s pretty bad, but it means SO MUCH to me, I’m so happy I own original animation paintings. Never lose your childhood wonder and imagination, nothing is ‘stupid’, fuck other people’s opinions.
Tulips in Farnborough… Didn’t really have an idea when I started doodling on top of the minimal watercolour paint (not my usual fill the paper with colour!) So it was fun to see odd flowers blossom from it. Going to have some fun making ink bubbles later for some underwater vibes. Paper straws at the ready!
Finally turned off the telly and started looking at books. Had one of those fun but brain hurting times trying to draw something real. Been too phased out with abstracts the past few months so it’s good to get something new going. I do like a bit of botany!
The first batch of Eyeballs Kids are now live on Etsy and waiting for new homes! I had such a great response from Bob, the first Eyeball Kid that I couldn’t resist making some more. We have Jem, Babs, Cynthia, Goldie, Clem, Gavin, Jack and Kevin all waiting to keep an eye on you… www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ShellyStill
I made these with a new Polymer clay called Cosclay. It’s amazing stuff! Has a bend to it when cooked which makes sure all of the thin parts don’t break, and also don’t stab people, much to the dislike of the Eyeball Kids me thinks… I then create the shimmer effect with mica powder and varnish to keep it strong! Let me know who you like the best, or what sort of things you would like to see on the next Eyeball Kids! Message me at email@example.com or leave a comment on the blog!
Hi all! Wow I am so bad at keeping up with the blog. I even have weekly alerts on my phone that I conveniently seem to miss! But hey, I’ve been busy… I’ve been one of the very lucky people who have had two months off work on furlough in the UK and I’ve had the best time exploring and playing with all different sorts of material and inks. I was very fortunate to be a Kickstarter on the new Cosclay polymer clay from www.cosclay.com It’s astounding stuff that bends like rubber once cooked and it has opened an avenue that I have always wanted to get into, freaky fantasy pendant necklaces! Using a mixture of Cosclay, crystals, mica powder and paint I have been inventing some very weird and wonderful pendants that are already starting to be adopted around the world!
One eyed Bob was the first to be adopted and is now very happy staring at the sights and sounds of the North. I have some more Eyeball Kids coming up soon, and will blog when they are ready to enter the real world! But I also have some fun and freaky tentacle pendants currently for sale at Etsy! www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ShellyStill
So what happens when you start watching Star Trek Next Generation again from the start? You sit an doodle a load of planets you fancy visiting! Or at least look at from the Enterprise. NCC-1701-A though, I’m a traditionalist. You can find these sets on Adobe Stock HERE and Shutterstock HERE (or message me)
