Two hours into this entire process and I think I’ve reached my limit with the speed of making edits in the blog post and waiting for it to save. So I’ve decided I might actually resize the droplet again but add another vCPU – however, this does mean I will probably wait around 15 minutes for this process to complete but that seems worth it for my sanity. Waiting 5 minutes to process each click is driving me mad.Read More
I’ve got a couple of hours up my sleeve this evening. My intent is to work towards finalising the release of some prints of modern leaf drawings/illustrations. Last Saturday, I released the original drawings of these modern leaf drawings on my online store, as well as on Bluethumb and Etsy.

If you’re a creative maker selling art prints, then this is for you. It may seem more time-efficient to find a stylised stock image from another Etsy seller, but if you just can’t find something that’s perfectly on brand and inline with your audience, then save yourself time from endless browsing, and create your own stylised stock images. In whatever frame size, orientation, and as much or as little feminine as you like.Read More
When planning stifles your creative flow, especially in painting, then just ditch it. If planning is only stopping you from making progress on the task you want to focus on, then it’s completely missing the point.
