Christmas cards 2012

Here are my six Christmas cards for 2012, each a hand drawn sketch of Edinburgh in the winter.

Including the simple ‘Merry Christmas’ message inside each A5 card comes with a white envelope. The pack of six different designs costs £4.50 plus pnp direct from my site, or £5 from various places around Edinburgh. I will add places you can buy them below as they become available.

£1 from each pack of cards will go to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children charity; The Sick Kids Friends Foundation. A charity very close to my heart and one that does amazing work every day of the year to make the lives of the children and the families of the children in the hospital a little easier.

Helter Christmas card

This is your second glimpse of one of this years Christmas Cards. Being printed as we speak, ‘Helter Skelter’ will be one of six cards in a pack to go on sale from Saturday.

Three will be three watercolour cards like this one and three black and white like ‘Bobby and robin’, which you can see HERE.

They’ll be £3.50 for the pack of six with £1 from each pack going to Sick Kids Childrens Hospital charity; the Sick Kids Friends Foundation.

So how do you like card number two?

WhereArtI #034

Another Monday, and with it another WhereArtI quiz to tickle your head. Can you name this building, the top of which is seen here between a couple of flags? If you can then shout it from the rooftops… or tweet/facebook/message me instead.

Clues to come for those who need them, keep checking on facebook and twitter. Remember to include the hashtag #wherearti with your answers either below, on facebook or twitter and also to keep an eye on the ES facebook page for clues throughout the day. Answers to come by this time tomorrow, and although for now the quiz is just for fun the first three correct answers will get a mention plus a link from my site if they make it onto the WhereArtI leaderboard.

For the time being WhereArtI? is just for fun, but if you would like your business to appear in the sketch, sponsor the quiz or supply a prize then please get in touch.

Good luck!

Morning folks, perhaps a tougher WhereArtI sketch this week – but can you name this weeks location?

This drawing combines the old and the new of Edinburgh architecture, but can you tell me from which ‘walk’ am I sketching?

I’ll add up the scores, plus those from last week and add them to the WhereArtI leaderboard tomorrow. Good luck!

WhereArtI #016

Monday again, which of course means another WhereArtI sketch – can you name this weeks location?

This watercolour drawing is a beautiful building close to Edinburgh city centre, I’ve left the name off the front of the building but can you name the bar and restaurant on the ground floor?
