Happy Monday everyone! Further to my previous post, which showcased one of my bird designs submitted for the Ohh Deer competition, here are the other designs that make up my 'Bird and Leaves' collection. I have recently given a number of cards to people with these designs on and they have so far gone down very well, so I am hoping to get these into my etsy shop soon as my first paper product. Hope they help to cheer up your Monday. Ive nicknamed my favourite, the yellow 'Elvis' bird. I just love his hair!

I recently came across the fantastic site 'Ohh Deer' which sells quirky illustrated gifts featuring the work of some incredibly talented artists and illustrators.

They are currently running a competition to become a regular contiribtuing artist and the above pictures are my entries. They are available for sale in their competition shop for a limited time only, so please help support me by having a look, clicking on the links below the images and feel free to buy them if you like them! ;)

Why don't you give it a go too. You can still enter the competition and there is some absolutely amazing work up.

Hope you are all having a good week.

So because the weather is being so rubbish and Spring does not seem to be on the horizon, here is my 'Spring Burst' design to brighten up the end of your week. First featured on Judy Adamson's Art and Design Blog alongside some other wonderful work by my classmates from ABSPD. Thanks Judy and have a happy Friday and weekend everyone. Here's hoping for some sunshine :)

Hello and welcome to my new 'Ruth Thorp Studio' blog. After launching my website a few weeks ago, I have now managed to get the blog up and running too. Here you will find my inspirations, creations and a bit of day to day life alongside showcases of wonderful work from other like-minded talented creatives!

I will try to update you regularly on my new work and news - fingers crossed there will be lots of it as I launch myself into the world of Surface Pattern Design and Illustration.

I'll be showcasing some of my new work a little later, but for now, the latest news is that this weekend I became a proud graduate of the wonderful 'Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design' course run by the hugely talented Rachael Taylor and Beth Nicholls. This course has been so inspiring and opened up so many opportunities and ideas that I can only say thank you so much to Rachael and Beth for introducing me to this new exciting world. I'm not sure quite yet where this might take me, but so far I am enjoying the journey and indulging in developing my own style and creative path. I am finally on my way to doing what I love .......... and I'm loving it!
