Lots of new things happening, I really can't wait for everything to unfold.
First of all... I dyed my hair blue! The photo doesn't do it justice (yes, my skin really is that white,LoL), the colour is amazing, we used a mix of turqoise and blue, so my hair has some really cool effects through it. The amount of times I had to re apply bleach to get my dark brown out must have been traumitsing for my hair, but it is all good now. :)
My hairdresser is amazing, so if you are in Aberdeen I highly reccomend her, her name is Sara Nezhad. She doesn't have a website at the moment, but you can contact me here or send me a tweet, then I can give you Sara's details.
Anyway, enough about my hair...
I am near the end of illustrating The Perfect Pudding: A Space Adventure. Just two chapters to go, I am so excited for this book to be printed, I hope all of you will buy it ;)
I have so much ideas flowing at the moment, I will finally be getting my scarves done soon (as soon as my photoshop starts behaving), got plans for jewellery, prints and character designs.
I have some ideas for a character I have been drawing, I don't have a name for her yet, I might just keep it as 'nicolpops'. These are just the initial sketches, but I just had an idea of this girl, dressed as different characters from fairytales, in different scenarios. When I finally get my tablet I will colour her in and use her to make a range of stationary and cards, perhaps make a story for her too! Super excited about this, and can't wait to show you more as I progress with this.
That's all for now, I will be having a pretty hectic month over the next couple of weeks, with the book deadline, moving house and my sisters wedding just around the corner!!
Fee free to share, comment and let me know what you think of the blog and website, I am always happy to hear from you guys :)
Various ponderings by me; Nicola Brand: creator of the Nicolpops stitch-punk doll. I dabble with illustration, but my main passion is for knitting, and using mixed media to create one of a kind critters.
