Valentines Giveaway!

Owls are a traditional Valentine’s thing, aren’t they? Either way, I’m celebrating Valentine’s Day by giving away these hand-drawn owl illustrations to a pair of lucky winners over on my Instagram!

These one-off pieces have been hand-drawn with fine liners and metallic marker on art paper. The design has been loosely inspired by Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs, with a geometric twist. And if you place the two owls together, their wings form a chevron heart.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply head over to this post and tag one of your favourite humans in the comments. It could be your bestie, significant other, or just someone who you think would like the piece – leave them a nice message and let’s spread some love!

Sketchbook Stuff vol 7

I’ve been neglecting my sketchbooks a bit lately as my iPad and Apple Pencil combo has become more convenient for rough work.

My sketchbooks haven’t disappeared from my workflow though and I’m still using them for playing with traditional media and enjoying time away from my screens. 

Here are a few favourites since my last post.

Happy New Year!

Just a quick post to wish you all a Happy New Year and all the best for the year ahead. Here’s to making 2017 an awesome one!

I’ve got a lot of plans in the works for this year – more creating, learning, and generally aiming to make this year bigger and better than the last! I’m also booking in new commissions for the coming months, so if you’d like to work with me get in touch.

Festive #ArtDrop 2016

I’ve been putting up little festive illustrations around Manchester city centre today, for a one-off holiday #ArtDrop run.

The series has been created using a combination of digital lines, with details and colours added by hand, along with some sparkly layering and a silver frame to finish. No 2 pieces in the series are alike and they won’t be available anywhere else.

See my Twitter @stina_jones for clues on the locations. Find one and it’s yours!
