Just after Christmas I doodled some rather fun, bright Toucans in my sketch book and used my Mozart brush pens to colour them. I think the dull grey weather was getting to me.
I shared a photo of my picture on Instagram and was totally chuffed when Mozart Supplies shared my picture on their own page and it got over 465 likes! I can quite honestly say that I never expected that.
I also received the comment from a decorating company that it would make a great pattern for a wall paper for a children’s room. This got me thinking….. I have a much neglected Redbubble account (where you upload art work and they print it onto all sorts of items such as clothing, mugs, cards, pictures etc when someone buys it) so I decided to redraw my colourful toucans with a view to upload to Redbubble.
These are some photos taken from Redbubble showing how my toucans look on some of their products. I must confess to being a little bit pleased with the final result.
Anyhoo, it is Valentine’s Day. Are you sick of seeing hearts and flowers everywhere? I’m not at all romantic but we have a nice dinner planned with the kids and I have a small treat for them as tonight also marks the last day of school before half term. I have bought Mr Artisan Duck and enormous box of chocolates as that is definitely the way to his heart 😀
Your pattern is adorable!! ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you so much 🙂
They look great – no wonder the company wanted to use them.
Thank you. I was pleased with how they looked as a pattern. I think they would look great as wall paper 🙂
The toucans would cheer up anyone’s day. They are great.
Thank you. Maybe I should get a mug with them on to brighten my morning cuppa 🙂
These are awesome and definitely professional-looking! Congrats!
Thank you so much 🙂 I’m looking forward to drawing more birds and making a little series of them maybe.
Aren’t you smart. The toucans are really colorful.
Thank you. I just loved colouring with all the bright pens. They are so often neglected when I draw!
These are fantastic! The end product is gorgeous!
Thank you so much Lisa 🙂
Wow! I never knew there was a site like that! And, how awesome do your toucans look! I know stores in Florida that would sell them!!! I’d totally tote around a darling tote like that!!
Ah, thank you so much for such a lovely comment 🙂 I didn’t realise that sites like Redbubble existed until I saw someone else promote their products on Instagram. Turns out there are quite a few different companies offering the same service!
This really is stunning Hannah and I am delighted it got such well deserved attention!
Thank you 😃 I don’t think I’ll ever get that many likes on Instagram again 😆
Oh my gosh! That illustration makes the perfect print!! Love it.
Thank you 😀 I’m a little obsessed with how well it turned out 😆
This pattern is lovely 😍
Thank you 🙂
