Welcome to the weekend, Beastiebuddies! And since it's the end of the week, my mind has wandered in an artsy direction for this Friday Social. In school, it seemed like art class always fell on a Friday afternoon, and it was a much nicer way to wrap up the week than, say, double maths or … Continue reading Friday Social #4 – Getting Arty, For Free!
Hey there Beastie friends! I hope you all had a super weekend... Especially any of you who were celebrating St Patrick's Day on Saturday! Today on the BeastieBlog, we're weighing in on an issue that has been troubling humans for centuries - the ongoing battle between the arts and the sciences. And is it really … Continue reading Arts? Science? Why Choose?
Ooooh, it's been a while since I posted on a Friday! But after my lazy sick day post a couple of weeks ago, I thought I might give you all a more regular behind-the-scenes look at life in Beastie Towers, and share some of the antics that the rest of the global Beastie family have … Continue reading Friday Social #1
I've really been spoiling you all with the new Beasties lately. And look, here's another one... The first official Beastie commission of 2018! This fuzzy little fellow was specially created for Stephen, who recently celebrated his third birthday, and whose favourite thing is... Road signs! Turns out there's a bit of a gap in the … Continue reading New Beastie Time? Sign Me Up!
Well hello there! And despite the best efforts of the mean ol' flu bug that temporarily disrupted my blogging last week, I'm now back in the land of the living. Hurrah! So, shall we celebrate by meeting a new Beastie? I think so! Those of you who keep up with Laura at A Pict in … Continue reading A Picture-Perfect Beastie!
Hello there everybody! Today seems like a fitting day to share the last of my pre-Christmas commissions with you, since I'm looking out my window and watching the ground being slowly covered with a dusting of snow and hail! It seems we might have a bit of a way to go yet until Spring starts … Continue reading A Bewitching Beastie!
Happy Tuesday, everybody! And, after a brief wintry wander with Paddy and Plunkett last week, we're going to dip back into the pile of pre-Christmas commissions, and meet another new Beastie! So, you all know Explorer Beastie, right? ...And some of you might remember a few variations on the theme over the last couple of … Continue reading New Frontiers For Explorer Beasties!
OK folks, I promised you something big this week, and here it is! Now, I've made Beastie families before (you can meet some of them here and here), but when I was asked to create individual little monsters for all of a customer's nieces and nephews, I did briefly wonder what I was letting myself … Continue reading Monster Family Fun!
Hello everybody, and welcome to the first proper BeastieBlog post of 2018! I hope you all got a bit of a break over the holidays - I know I certainly took advantage of the end-of-year lull to catch up on some sleep! But it's great to be back, and right now is actually one of … Continue reading A Busy Beastie… And Her Best Friend!
Wow, what a hectic week it's been! And before I introduce you to another pre-Christmas new Beastie, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everybody who came along to meet me and my little monsters at our recent Christmas markets! It was so nice to see the faces behind some of my favourite … Continue reading Dublin The Beastie Fun!
