Hello there my creative friends it’s been a while! I hope you’re all well and are as creative as ever. Today I wanted to share a wheekly exciting update and some inky advice with you aspiring creatives.
Update one: I’ve started a little inky project and blog called the Guineapig wheekly . It’s an illustrated small pet blog and a little side to this inky business I’m passionate about. I blog 8 times a month about lots of different things from pet advice to tutorials and more.
My point I wanted to make with all of you is I found a way to combine two passions together and really connect with over 3000 people through it and my artwork.
I even created a little wheekly shop and product line of greetings cards, notebooks, decal stickers and a colouring book to boot.
By doing this I realised where I felt a little lost before in my creative business and maybe you feel the same? I was trying to promote myself and my artwork, but I didn’t realise that sharing a love with others and joining that with your creative passion could really connect with so many people.
Also if somethings not working don’t be afraid to try something new. Be brave my creative friends and if you have two passions why not put them together?
It’s april already and the year is flying by! Since its now the easter holidays though I pondered on the fact that the easter bunny has so much popularity during this time of year, but what about the guineapigs! So getting my inky imagination going and putting pen to paper I created the “Easter Guinea” !
Whilst the easter bunnies elsewhere delivering more eggs, I figured that an extra cute recruit on an egg hunt would be the perfect edition to make this holiday even more fun for piggie lovers and those who love to relax colouring.
So if you want something to do to pass the time, have fun or help you to relax during the holidays you’re very welcome to print and colour my inky easter guinea! All you have to do is click the above inky image , right click and print ( you may want to check your printer settings to ensure the picture isn’t stretched and prints A4 perfectly ).
Then you can colour away to your hearts content and even do multiple easter guineapigs matching the piggie pals you have at home! Once you’re done I’d love to see your finished easterguineas on instagram, so snap a picture and tag me @kateleonardillustration plus #easterguinea then I can find and admire all your piggies to!
This is my inky easter gift from me to you and you’re welcome to colour it for your own personal use and enjoyment (non-commercial).
