‘Krita Mandala 36’

‘Krita Mandala 36’

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on my website – hello new subscribers! <3

Here’s today’s free colouring page download;


(Click the image to open it on Deviant Art, look for the ‘Download’ link on the right-hand side, and when the large image opens, right-click and save.)

I’ve made a few small changes to my site. The ‘free mandala colouring pages’ tab now links directly to my colouring page gallery on Deviant Art which contains ALL of my free pages, not just the mandalas. The ‘Digital Colouring Packs For Sale’ tab now also pulls directly from my Etsy shop, displaying all of my paid digital download pages in neat little boxes.

Pursuing art as a source of income as well as a hobby is starting to become more feasible. I’ve been picked up by the wonderful artlicensing.com and through them I have some exciting projects in the works with several companies – soon you’ll be seeing my name and my art out there in some very cool ways 😀

I also have a super awesome new colouring book in the works, and through an actual publisher this time as opposed to self-publishing!  It’ll be a book exclusively full of my work, and it’s being done by a large American publishing house – hopefully in a week or two I can start sharing more details of that, as well as some sneak previews of the art that’s going into it.

In another project a little closer to home, I recently found out through a friend about a not-for-profit organisation back in Wales called Heads Above The Waves, that raises awareness of self-harm in young adults and provides ‘creative and positive ways of dealing with the bad days’. I had a look at their Facebook page and loved their aesthetic, and of course the work they’re doing – and contacted them to see if I could donate an original illustration for them to use. They were very enthusiastic about working with me! I’ll be designing a special colouring page for them to add to their collection of coping strategy resources, and also doing a little interview with them about the benefits of colouring as a relaxation technique. Watch this space! 😀

So, all in all, I’m keeping busy! I also work on my own little original artworks the old fashioned way with pen on paper, and have been selling those off to some lovely buyers who are giving them new homes. If you’d like to see my works-in-progress and get first dibs on buying completed original pieces before I list them on Etsy, you can follow me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/delangharad/, and on Instagram at instagram.com/welshpixie/.

You can find the original art I currently have available on my Etsy shop at The Crochety Pixie (and see below).

Thanks for your support, everyone! Happy colouring <3

LoveCrafts Knitting/Crochet Colouring Pages

I’ve been on pins to share this ever since I was first approached for the project – and finally it’s live so I can tell you all about it! I’ve drawn some Knitting/Crochet/Yarn-themed colouring pages exclusively for LoveCrafts to share and they’ve assembled them into a little free digital download print-ready PDF on their website. Go see!

Two New Mandalas

Two New Mandalas

Hi folks! Hope everyone’s had a lovely holiday and is raring to go for 2016!

It’s summertime here in South Africa and we’ve been having a heat wave for the past week or two. Today’s the first cool day we’ve had in a while. The heat saps my energy so I haven’t been as prolific as usual over this period, but I’ve taken advantage of the relief today and knocked out a couple of free mandala patterns. As usual, click the images to download the full size versions to print and colour:

I spent the holidays drawing some very intricate animal skull illustrations that I’ve assembled into a ‘Decorative Skulls’ colouring pack. They’ll all fit on A4 and you might need your fineliners for some of the details, but I’ve been colouring a couple of them with my Copic markers too which have thicker nibs than fineliners, and I was managing fine!

You can find all of my digital colouring pages for sale by clicking ‘Digital Colouring Packs For Sale’ from the menu above.

Skulls Splash

I’ve also moved my colouring packs (all but the Star Wars one) to a site called Itch.io – I’ve swapped to that site because they allow for a ‘pay what you want’ payment model, which is very helpful for supporters who want to and are able to contribute a little more; I can set a small minimum price for my colouring packs, but buyers have the option to pay over that minimum amount.

Lastly, I have a bunch of new things up on my Etsy shop, including these two journals crafted by a local book binder and hand-illustrated by me;

Happy colouring!

Three Little Drawings

Three Little Drawings

Hi everyone! Things on the drawing front have slowed down a bit here over the holiday season – we’ve been out gallivanting with friends and generally doing activities that didn’t leave much time for pen and paper. Here’s three I’ve worked on over the past week or so. Hope everyone’s had a lovely time! <3 As usual, click the images to download the full size versions for printing.

Mandala and Scarab

Mandala and Scarab

Here are the two illustrations I’ve hand-drawn recently. The scarab is obviously highly influenced by Egyptian symbolism – I think I need to delve into Egyptian stuff more, they have some cool things I can appropriate for doodling 😀

While you’re here, have a peek at the illustrated journals I have for sale – these are unique notebooks that I’ve had made by a local book binder who does everything by hand. The paper is gorgeous, the covers are a nice durable coated card, they’re lightweight, and small enough to carry around in your pocket. They’re available with black or white covers, and when you order one I’ll draw an original illustration on the cover. 🙂

Happy colouring!

Two little doodles

Two little doodles

Messdoodle, so-called because I was fighting off a headache while drawing it and wasn’t really fully concentrating;

And a scorpion, though I don’t know why because I don’t particularly like scorpions!!

As usual, click the images for the full size downloads.

Also, check my Etsy page for new goodies – I’ve added a decently sized (20cm square) mandala-butterfly vinyl sticker that’s fully colourable with permanent markers, so you can colour it in and then stick it somewhere awesome!
