20 Blue HARE
The design for the blue hair came very simply from Cara at Blue Hairdressing giving me the brief of 'as long as its blue, do what you like!'
So I did what I like! It took approx. 120 hours as I like to torture myself by pencilling a design, then inking it, then painting it and then inking in all the detail.
It was an absolute pleasure to paint this for Cara and Haslemere hares, and very important to me to get a friendly twinkle in her eye!SPONSORED byBlue Hair, GrayshottDISPLAYED :

ARTIST DETAILSZiggy J Simon
Gardener by day, illustrator by night!
I studied 3D at Reigate School of Art in the 90s, but after finishing I started my gardening business and didn't draw a thing until 6 years ago, when I drew a few animals for my daughter B, and my wonderful husband pointed out that I wasn't too shabby and maybe I should give it a go? I've been non stop ever since. (thanks Nick.)
I have also discovered a love of needlefelting, which is incredibly therapeutic.
I love a nice wildlife commission as we are passionate about preserving local wildlife, but also I'm very keen on Fantasy, Burlesque and botanical, and if I can mix the three together I am as happy as a Haslemere Hog in a Haslemere bog!SUPPORTED CHARITYPancreatic Cancer Action
