The Moon

It feels like such a long time since I've written here but I've been busy all the same with future projects! I'll have to wait a while before I can post about those but here's something I've been working on last week:

Love, Luck & Happiness Decal Mural

I had a brilliant request from a lovely person through Spoonflower to adapt the Love, Luck & Happiness calendar for a mural. It was pretty tricky working out all the elements into this format but I love how it's turned out! The measurements left a space at the top of the three 30 inch decals which I filled with another design (of her choice) to cut off and use in another project:

Woodland Mural

This was also originally a calendar and I really enjoyed playing around with the elements to fit the space.

Patrice A. is hosting a drawing challenge over on her blog this week; subject: the moon, so I'm submitting the mural image above. I first came across her work on V's brilliant advent calendar and absolutely love her owl cushion - click through for the links to all contributed moon pictures!

  1. hello Cally,
    thank you for joining this drawing challenge
    and for your sweet words
    your moon is magical
    and your work looks like
    a Japenese blockprint
    just beautiful

    dreamy moon reflection too, peaceful setting...

  16. What a beautiful illustration. So tranquil - I love the pattern fading in the sky and again in the water - so lovely...

  17. I'm glad it's still noticeable; the pattern was a lot more prominent in the original! Thanks for dropping by Nicky :)
