Switching Creativity

Earlier today, I updated my logo on The Hedgeblog. And then I was going to really get going on my WIP. I am doing a NaNoWriMo inspired write-athon this month, mainly ‘cos I am sick of myself procrastinating, and just want to get the damn thing finished!

So, what do I do? I start browsing Pinterest, and found an irresistible pin showing how to draw a hedgehog in 4 easy steps. HOW could I resist this challenge? Easily, you say. No, not me! I used to draw years ago, and I was curious to see if I can still do it. That’s the ‘almost Aries’ in me. Long story!

Of course, after the hedgehog was drawn, he needed a little house, in which MUST be a bookcase, (because books!!!), and then of course, a little table and crockery in case of visitors

Here is my progress if anyone is interested in my scribblings:

First, sketch a hedgehog…

Well, that wasn't so hard! Hand cramp doing all those spikes though.

Well that’s ALL FOLKS!

Love from Hedgey and I, over at the Hedgehole! x

With apologies to my husband and kids. Who needs dinner anyway? πŸ˜‰

  1. Your hedgehog is excellent and suits your blogs personality – quirky and fun. Pinterest sounds fascinating, and very useful. I ought to check it out sometime. Now stop procrastinating, Hedgey, and go and get some writing done. (I’m a right one to talk!) πŸ˜€
