Sloth Girl: Work in Progress ♥

I've always wanted to write and illustrate my own comic.  For a few years I've had an idea that I have been slowly working on.  There's odd sketches in many of my sketchbooks, but nothing felt right.
So I took a break from it for a while.
Recently, I picked up this idea again and began working on it. Ideas were flowing and I was liking what I was coming up with. I managed to get a story written and have begun developing my characters. Yey!
So I've given myself a deadline to have this complete. I'll be updating this post with my development/ work in progress.

Cosmic Wednesdays: Sarah's Guide to Pregnancy

I recently became an auntie! Auntie Ginge! My sister gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Lila, back in February.  I've never really been around babies before, I had never even held one, so this was strange, I suddenly felt like I had responsibilities, and the craziness that my sister was now a mum.

In January I organised a baby shower for my sister, we went to Happy Bunnies in Longton for afternoon tea. It was delicious.
I made some decorations for the tables, and a 'Sarah's Guide to Pregnancy' for everyone to take home.
The decorations were illustrations of my sister pregnant, that I made to stand up on the table.
I also made prints of them and put them in little Ikea frames as a gift.

Totally true, she did cry.


This is the guide I made, a two fold leaflet. 


I asked her for advice she would give to other people that are pregnant, these are the actual things she said to me. I included a little growth chart on the back. Science.

I loved doing this, I've always liked making leaflets and stationery. When I was at Uni, I made one on Mark Wallinger, an artist who was entered for the Turner Prize, or maybe he won, I'm not sure. I'll do a post on it if I can find it as I included a picture of Dennis Hopper ♥

Cosmic Wednesdays: The Candy Kingdom

I painted this ukulele back in 2014 (I think) Inspired by the Candy Kingdom in Adventure Time.  I love Adventure Time, Princess Bubblegum is one of my favourite characters and how adorable are the Banana Guards, they are so silly.  If you follow my Instagram account you may of seen I've painted a few ukuleles Inspired by Adventure Time over the last few years.

You cant quite tell by the photos, but it is actually a pale pink ukulele.




Super close up.

For more info on my ukuleles, or having a custom one painted, pop me an email at cosmicginge@gmail.com

Cosmic Wednesdays: The Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask Nesting Dolls

I spent many hours/days back in the nineties playing Links Awakening on my Gameboy.  Getting lost in dungeons and cutting grass for hours, collecting rupees so I could play the crane game. It was one of my favourite games. 
I had an Amiga back then, so was unaware of the other Zelda games, so I didn't get to play them until recently. My first experience with Majora's Mask was the HD remake for 3DS.
It's such a beautiful game, with a complex, and sometimes annoying, gameplay with how time works.
