Wonderful artwork!

A few months ago I came across a photograph in Flickr which compelled me to look at all the others in the set. It was a drawing of a dog, coloured with watercolours, but with a fluency and skill I could never aspire to. Since then I have become a big fan of this artist’s work and recently purchased some original work from her Etsy shop.

The artist is C.J.Kurtzrock, otherwise known as Janey from Janey’s Journal,  http://janeysjourney.typepad.com/ . Recently she has embarked on a new project which she calls a zine (thing). Basically she is working very hard to produce little booklets of her art – prints of her drawings which she handpaints with water colours. The first one was produced in January of this year, and was called 15 Meows and 1 Woof. The second one which came out a month later is called 15 Woofs and 1 Meow. I have been lucky enough to purchase a copy of each from her Etsy shop and I an entranced by them.  Here are some random photos to illustrate what I mean.

    Who should be thanking who here. What wonderful things to say and thank you soooo much for the Flickr testimonial. I love sitting here on a Friday night, surfing the web and finding this. It really made my day (actually night).
