Welcome to my blog and thanks for checking out my work! I’m currently working in academic publishing but I started out as a graphic designer and am still a visual artist at heart. Missing the creativity of my old design job, and to brighten what Homer Simpson would refer to as ‘just another lazy dog dangling day’, I’ve returned to drawing in my spare time. I’m currently concentrating on creating small pieces as I’m struggling with M.E./Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and energy levels are low and rather random most days. I’ve started this blog to showcase and share my work. As I’m a terrible procrastinator and ‘blessed’ with a vociferous inner critic, my only rule is that I have to finish each illustration started and post it on this blog, warts and all! The resulting portfolio is not edited in any way. This blog is not meant to be a selection of my best work, rather it’s intended as a record of my creative journey.

Please feel free to rate my illustrations or leave a comment, your feedback is very much appreciated. If you like my work and would like a heads-up on future posts, you can either follow my blog with WordPress or sign up for an email subscription. If you have any queries or would like to ask permission to use any of my illustrations, please feel free to email me using the contact form provided on the ‘contact me’ page.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my posts and will return at times to check this blog for new work.

With thanks and best wishes,

Christianne Bailey
