Witchy portrait commissions

Posted on: September 18th, 2019 by samdrawsthings No Comments

I could see her so clearly, my little inner witch. 🧙‍♀️ It was in a dream. She’s about 8” tall, and towers tinily over her sacred fire. She’s sort of a miniature version of me, but with a wider, more elfin face, huge deep eyes and even more hair. She bustles with a magnetic energy, not concerned with her stature at all and completely comfortable in her own power… so I had to draw her. And add some flames for her to conjure with 🔥

My witchy self portrait over on Instagram really resonated with people.  I had a lovely reaction to sharing this part of myself, and quite a few requests for me to draw other people.

Sooo, I have a few spots for commissions of YOUR inner witch.

So far I’ve drawn the magical Mishelle:

@mishelle_bee as a witch! 🧙‍♀️ 🦋 . I absolutely loved capturing the inner witch of this beautiful lady for her portrait commission. She’s surrounded by her favourite colours and her butterfly familiars. And if anyone knows about the power of transformation, it’s this lady. We’ve become virtual friends and I feel so lucky to have her to chat to, especially about parenting stuff. She’s ace. You also need to pop over to see what she wrote about this little video over on her profile cos OHMYGODDESS the words are so pure and perfect. ⭐️ I’ve got a few spaces for witchy portrait commissions open at the moment if you’d like me to draw you too. You can drop me a message for a chat about witchy magic! 🧙‍♀️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . #WitchyPortraits #InnerWitch #IllustratorsOfInstagram #Transformation #Pixaloop #Halloween #BeMoreWitch

Sharing my little inner witch and then hearing how she’d resonated you has been so lovely. She popped up in a dream and I’m so pleased I was brave enough to share her with you.

Badgerween is a black and white stripy celebration of Halloween from the Badger Sett – a group of compassionate creatives fundraising for the Badger Trust.  We are supporting their badger vaccination project, a positive alternative to the cull which is being increasingly rolled out across the UK.

How gorgeous are these textile are badgers from Maysie Daydreams?

The badgers are available in Amanda’s online shop here.

And you can pre-order some of this scrummy Truffle Hunter Yarn from Mad Scientist Yarns:

You can get your hands on some Trufflehunter yarn here.

And there will be lots more coming soon, including project bags from Annie at Busy Pottering, who has found the cutest fabric!

I’m also still busy drawing things,and have been following some of the prompts for #mabsdrawlloweenclub on Instagram.  I wanted to draw something that touched on why the Badger Sett exists – so drew some ghost badgers, a haunted badger cage and a laboratory…

These drawings for #Badgerween and #mabsdrawlloweenclub have turned into a little story about why I started the Badger Sett, a group of creatives fundraising for @badgertrust 🐾👻🐾 1. The #ghost badgers haunt the silent fields in their thousands. The wild landscapes they used to call home bereft of their digging paws and soft sounds. Uprooted and lost, they search for their old setts, crossing roads and drifting through supermarket car parks, meandering through dead grass where bees used to buzz. 🐾 2. If only each badger trapped and shot could warn the next badger not to enter the cage… #hauntedobject. 🐾 3. In the #laboratory, scientists plot and plan and explore less deathly ways to deal with bTb and keep our badgers safe…

The Badger Sett are celebrating a black and white stripy Halloween this year, fundraising for the Badger Trust.

We are a collective of creatives making things to support the badger vaccination project and help end the badger cull, and the first few items for sale have just gone live.

There’s a little and growing collection of black and white and badgery things in the Samdrawsthings online shop…

And I am really excited to announce that MAD Scientist Yarns have just launched a Badgerween colourway!

This beautiful hand-dyed yarn is Trufflehunter, and it’s available for pre-order now:

Other members of the Sett are busy developing ideas for Badgerween (and Badgermas!) so I’ll keep you posted as more creations are unveiled.

I’m also attempting to keep up with the drawing prompts for Mab’s Drawlloween club over on Instagram, adding a badger theme to each prompt, and will be developing these into prints and things…

Happy Badgerween!  🙂
