The Last Trip Of The Year

Hi everyone! It's not long until New Year here and so I wanted to end 2017 with one more post.

In September, I visited Genoa with Sam's family.

Inktober 2017

Hi Guys! In October I joined Inktober amidst the masses for the second year. This time around I wanted to make my theme into a Halloween hit-list of all my favourite movies/tv shows/novels etc to get stuck into in October.

I've compiled them all together here, of course do keep up with my instagram @bearandcrocodile for more up to the minute sketches and posts.

Quentin Blake @ the Jerwood Gallery

Hello all! A few weeks ago I popped down to a great Quentin Blake exhibition, 'The Only Way To Travel' at the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings. The exhibition boasted all new illustrations from Quentin depicting many weird, wonderful and wacky means of fantasmic transportation and it was a treat for the eyeballs (all nine of them).

The New Forest!

Hello again everyone! A few weeks ago Sam and I decided we fancied a quick weekender to somewhere not too far away. We wanted nature, wildlife, and a less than four hour commute. The New Forest it was!

7 Day Sketchbook Challenge

Morning everyone! I've been trying a new approach to drawing over the past few weeks. I've been really busy and travelling all over the place, which has meant that whenever I've had two minutes to sit down and draw I've been absolutely dead inside with no creative juice left flowing. Rather than kicking myself for not being able to channel the next Mona Lisa on my lunch break, I've decided to take a step back and have a mental regroup.

So often when it comes to creative block it's easy to stumble at the first hurdle. I've decided to eliminate the hurdle-- for this challenge, I tasked myself with wiping my brain clean and drawing only what was directly in front of me.

Postcards from Palma Part 2!

Hello again! Do you remember, perhaps twenty minutes ago, when I posted to say I was taking a more laissez-faire approach to posting? Well how's about this for a doozy, two posts in one night, folks! I've been sitting on it for weeks, but I finally have the second and final part of my Mallorca travel diary to share with you this evening! It already seems like a lifetime since we went away as June as been another manic month for us. I have tons of photos to share again today as the second part of our trip was definitely the time we spent exploring the most. If you like a blue-sky beach and sandy toes, this is the post for you! 

OOTD For When It's Hot Enough To Wear A Skirt Despite Only Half Shaving My Legs

Hello all! Oh, it's so English to say, but isn't it just so bloody hot? I'm writing this at past ten in the evening and just having a laptop on my legs is just sending me into a heat spiral. Anyway, to the point. I had a little word with myself a few weeks ago regarding this blog, and the illustrations that come alongside it.

Postcards from Palma pt.1

Hello everyone! I'm writing to you today to share some photos of my recent trip to Palma, Mallorca. When I originally began looking to go away I found other blogger recommendations to be invaluable, so I always like to share and share alike when I return. Sam and I had a glorious four day trip away, and I want to tell you all about it!

Hello everyone! I hope you're well. May has been another busy month for me as I've been here there and everywhere.

20 Things to do in Edinburgh! (Part two) + VLOG

Hello again! It's part two of my Edinburgh guide today, and this was a day that I mostly filmed so it's not too photo-heavy. There is scenery and eating spots galore to be shared, so make sure to watch the vlog for the full immersive experience of bonny Scotland.

20 Things to do in Edinburgh! (Part one) + VLOG

Hi all!

A little while ago I took a trip to Edinburgh and I’ve been slowly working on a travel post about it since. When I was looking for things to do in Edinburgh I found blog recommendations to be invaluable and so I wanted to share and share alike. We managed to squeeze in nearly everything we wanted to (weather permitting), so I’ve written up all the places we went to as well as a few others we had to skip but would recommend for anyone with more time! I also bloomin’ well vlogged the whole trip so I could take you all along with us. It’s up on my Youtube channel now so give it a look!

Warner Brothers Studio Tour - Vlog!

Hello everyone! I really hope you're well, it's been a New York Minute since I last spoke to you and I don't mean in the Olsen sense. I hope that January and February served you all well, I've had lists and lists of content to share with you all and since December had no time at all to put pen to paper (figuratively, obvs).
