I am excited to share that I will be starting a new series of hearts, influenced totally by other peoples passions and loves.
I don’t want to give too much of the idea away – but it will involve collaborations with inspirational people…not directly linked to the creative industry – with a bespoke piece of heart art created. There will be a new look and feel for the geekheartsaday blog too. I hope you enjoy it as much as I am sure I will….eeeeek!
I’ve had such a special day today with my family. We took our son to an indoor water park for the first time. It was lots of fun – I’m convinced he is half fish! He really didnt want to get out & loved everything from the mini waterslides, splashing with daddy in the rapids to toddling about in the water fountains. A day to remember for sure. Precious moments saved in my heart.
So today is the last of my 28 hearts of February mission. Im getting lots of love & support for my daily hearts so will continue to post dedigns & creations…just not daily.
My sketch is black biro on moleskin. A for Alessandro (our son & representing ALWAYS) a few ‘timeless’ elements for FOREVER – all teamed up with a few scales & tentacles.
Today I was inspired by a mosaic pattern that I have seen thousands of time – as it’s in our local high street. It’s not very loved and is completely taken for granted. I’ve tried to find out about the history of it but with no joy. So I’ve included a screen grab from google to show it to you – which explains my heart art design. My design make me think tribal ‘knitwear’ though! haha!
Today has been a manic one. I’ve collected our happy dog paddy from his lovely dog-carer Claire at Pet Au Pair (think superdooper-doggy-hotel+walkie-lover)..she is a jolly, inspirational lady. Plus my mums been staying and we took the boy to a soft-play where he spent most of the time between bouncing-uh-hum falling on the bouncy castle and rolling around in the ball pit. I”m sure our boy thinks he is part dog too…as he likes to get in the dog bed (with or without dog in there) and crawl around picking up toys with his mouth! I was a little concerned his first word was going to be ‘woof!’ but thankfully it was just a ‘Hello!’ instead.
So a colourful day all in all…if a little hectic.
I’ve created this as heart art as a vector artwork in Illustrator…
How are you today?
Im feeling thankful for my loves, my life & lessons learned.
I made todays large scale heart art with the stroller and a puddle on our way back home from playing at the park in sunshine. About 2x3meters…
