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

Ripening apples with baby bee gardener 🐝 blimey it's been a funny old parenting day today. From feeling smug that we had a spare cuddly doggy when Tris freaked out seeing his favourite toy going round in the washing machine, to the clean cuddly doggy getting dunked in a bucket of water so NO cuddly doggies. Then we just couldn't get him to sleep tonight, maybe doggy related but we also realised he has a molar coming through. A 30 minute plus panicky search for the calpol ended in the wardrobe, where a certain baby bee had hidden it. He eventually crashed out snuggled with the real doggy (who hates snuggles) on the sofa at like 10pm. Here's hoping that means a lie in tomorrow… it means a lie in, right?! #stopcensoringmotherhood #thisisparenting #teething #andawonderweektoo #leap9 #weneedmorebiscuits #parenting #breathe
