Down Down Frog – Childrens book by Beatrice Ajayi

Hi everyone, I am so excited because I picked up my latest children’s book today. I am planning to sell it at my sons school Christmas fair.

It took a little time to create using new brushes on the procreate app. But I love it. I always get my kiddies involved in the process. They have a can do mindset. They are inspiring and my little heroes. It would also make a great Christmas gift. A cute 6 X 6 inch size that fits into most bags of pressies.

Love you guys, later

P.s Hoping to bring more of my goings on soon.

A Hundred Hugs from Dad

Hello, my latest instalment of children’s books is available now at www.blurb.com. It was inspired by my son who had a dream. It took some months to write, illustrate and upload. I have ordered a copy and can’t wait to get it. Will try and post pictures once it arrives.

imageA lot of different things have been going on. Ideas and juices have been flowing, and I am in that place of realising I can’t do it all. So as always I have to take a step back and asses what can be done and flow with it.

Last weekend I took in my ten pieces for the ‘Postcard’ exhibition at The Line Gallery in Linlithgow, west lothian, Scotland, in the town I grew up. The owners Gail and Elisabet have always been gracious to me, since my first time stumbling into their gallery many many years ago. I always love taking part in the exhibitions they hold. The open day of the exhibit is on the 3rd of October 2015, from 2pm to approx 4.30pm.

I have also been looking into creating some Christmas Greeting cards. I am trying to contain it to ten images. Still not sure how many i will print as cards yet, but I have 8 so far. You can find them attached to this post.

My Shop has a lot of new cutie pies too, I am always on the go. I enjoy being able to be creative and my little son and daughter really add to the inspirations.

Have a gorgeous Sunday. B

Sketching Ballerina’s – by Scottish Artist Beatrice Ajayi

I have really been enjoying sketching my little characters. I have so many it’s becoming ridiculous to find the time to colour them. I created this cutie pie today. Hope you love her. Will start thinking of colours that may suit her. Hope you are having a great week so far. πŸ™‚ image

Alice and The Cat Video Process – Art by Beatrice Ajayi

Alice & The Cat

Hi everyone, hope you all doing ok. I have been working on a variety of self directed projects. One of those projects I stumbled into. I decided to create some work in black and white sketchy style. It had been a while that I have done sketches as a focal point of my work. They are usually used as a stepping stool to colour work of late.

I sketched my first cutie and was inspire to create a series of Alice in wonderland sketchy drawings.
This is a link to the fourth in the series of work. You can find other process videos related to the Alice theme in my Youtube.com Channel under my name ‘Beatrice Ajayi’

Origins – Book One in the Scarecrow Murders Trilogy by Beatrice Ajayi

Origins

Hi Everyone, hope your day has gone great so far. I thought for this post today I would make a mention of my thriller suspense ‘Origins’.

You can find it as an Ebook on Amazon here: Origins – Book One of Scarecrow Murders Trilogy

Origins

Writing has been a part of me for as long as my art has. I will say I dedicated more time to art, but am trying to increase that the opportunity for writing.

I am excited about having finished the first book. Have begun on the second. It is a challenge to put the pieces floating around in my head on paper. I am hoping I learned easier ways to digest my thoughts but we will see. I am also excited about my new characters.

Fun times. I will speak soon. πŸ™‚

Cat Balance – Beatrice Ajayi – Scottish Artist

Balancing Cat

Hello on this dry Wednesday. I have had a busy day planning strategies for my Business. I think it will involve some detailed thinking. I really am blessed with how far I have been able to achieve dreams, but there is still some more dreaming left.

I have been doing my usual research looking and reading and video watching on the tube for teaching on reaching more people who would really appreciate my work. Every artist has to think of this so I don’t feel awkward talking about it. It’s all part of running the buisness.

Outside of all the above I have been sketching and painting on my iPad and pen on paper. This cat digital painting is entitled ‘Cat Balancing’. You can view the process here: Cat Balance Video

Preening Cat – art by Beatrice Ajayi

Preening Cat

Morning folks, hope you are doing well, if not I am thinking if you. I have been flowing in and out of different self-led and self imposed projects. I think of a theme I have wanted to do for ages, and then do a series or collection to kick it out of my system. Not through loathing but to get a very much needed fix on cuteness of that particular kind. One of these much needed fixes have been cats. image

The process video is here:

This kitty is called the ‘preening Cat’. It is one of my favourite so far from my cat series. I have noticed that some subjects within my work have been set aside to some extent in my mind, and I have come to realise that probably subconsciously I have not felt I had the ingredient in my process to create them in the way I viewed them mentally. Let’s just say cats I had produced in my past were of different substance and message and style. I love this current experience in making these exciting characters and have more to come.
