Hey guys! I got to go to London last week to see a private viewing of this year's Christmas animation from @catsprotection - Libby Left Behind, animated by the talented @rushudda and sound by @james.sound & Dan Millidge! It is such an insanely sweet story that you can watch here (I recommend having some tissues close to hand because tears are likely!): www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=gUW4DPgQukk&feature=emb_logo . Swipe for some info on the animation and the charity itself, and also a timelapse video of this doodle I did of Libby! . Cats Protection are a charity that's very close to my heart as (and you've probably worked this out) I love cats, and CP do so much to rehome and care for abandoned cats. I feel very lucky to get to work with them and I really recommend checking out all the great work they do for our feline friends! . . . . #catsprotection #libbyleftbehind #christmasanimation #christmas2019 #painting #illustration #illustrator #illustratorsoninstagram #cute #cat #catsofig #digitalart #digitalartist #winter #ipadpro #procreate #artvideo #timelapsevideo #art #artwork #artist #artofig #instaart #kitten

Folktale Week day 1: home! . . This little dwelling is where little Wizard calls home. Though it only looks like a mound of earth, it is possible to see little windows, a door, chimney, and even small hints of brickwork poking through the moss and grass, giving the impression this was once an actual house. Time has aged it, though, and nature has taken over, which suits Little Wizard just fine as he feels most comfortable surrounded by the earth. His humble abode is situated at the very edge of his island as he loves to look out to sea, he finds something soothing about the waves as they roll onto the beach. . . I am so happy I can finally share these little snippets of Little Wizard and his world with you and I hope you enjoy them! This is a digital painting (in @procreate ) that I’ve worked over the top of an ink drawing I did over a year ago. I’ve included the video which has gone a little... sideways! I’m not sure how to fix it so you’ll have to turn your head, haha! . . . . #art #illustration #kidlit #kidlitart #kidslit #book #bookart #childrensbook #picturebook #cute #illustrator #illustratorsoninstagram #artofig #artist #artwork #doodle #dailydoodle #folktaleweek #folktaleweek2019 #drawingchallenge #instaart #home #mgbrushes #fairytale

Hey guys, it's November which means I can officially share these! I'm open for Christmas card portrait commissions! I will draw you, your loved ones and pets in snuggly festive outfits to help you spread cheer and all things wonderful to your friends and family ❤ As a bonus for the season, there's also currently 15% off all portraits until the middle of the month! . HOW TO ORDER: . • Visit my Etsy shop (link in bio) or www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ruthdraws and go to the christmas card listing (edit: had a bit of trouble with the link but it should be fine now) • Select the number of people and pets you would like and add to your cart • Purchase as normal • Send me photos to [email protected] and I will get doodling • Please note that you will only receive a digital copy of your portrait that you can print from yourself in whatever quantity you need! . Current processing time is 3-4 weeks, which may increase the closer it gets to Christmas! . I would also like to say a huge THANK YOU!!!! For all the support you guys have given me over the last 11 months, when I took the plunge to freelance full time. Every purchase means everything because it allows me to live and keep creating, and every like and comment just makes me feel so happy and encouraged to keep going with this! ❤ . #etsy #etsyshop #christmas #christmas2019 #christmascard #portrait #customportrait #cute #cat #illustration #illustrator #illustratorsoninstagram #painting #festive #doodle #digitalart #couple #coupleportrait #familyportrait #art #instaart #dailydoodle #drawingoftheday #artofig

Hey guys! I have seen that #folktaleweek is coming back and I wanted to make a little post to say I’m going to try my hardest to take part this year (after I totally failed last year, haha). This year, my images are going to be all about Little Wizard, a character I came up with last year who I’ve been dying to dedicate some time to, and when I saw the prompts for this event I knew it was time! I’ll undoubtedly fall behind, but it’s all about fun, right? Swipe to see the prompts - they’re the official prompts for 2019, I just wanted to make my own little picture for them. I am not a host for this event, but here is a little note from the original hosts who I will tag below: . Follow the prompts, one per day, for each of FolktaleWeek, November 4th through 10th. Use the hashtags #folktaleweek and #folktaleweek2019 to show your work and interact with other artists. During Folktale Week, the challenge hosts will be pulling work from the hashtag to promote in [their] stories! . Folktale Week was created to encourage people to share traditionally verbal stories through visual media. We want to see how you tell a story through the media that inspires you. . Folktale Week 2019 was developed by a group of talented artists from all around the world. Be sure to check out their profiles for inspiration: . @jennifermpotter @devonholzwarth @andrea_stegmaier @carolinebonnemuller @sofiamoore_studio @heycasshey @rachaelschaferdesigns @sandiesonke @debrastyer @laure_illustrations @louve.draws @matejalukezic @shelly_laslo @tanja_stephani @juliachristiansde @thebrotherskent @nicallanart @kathryndurst @chelslarss @bonbonoiseau . #illustration #illo #art #artofig #instaart #folktale #illustratorsofinstagram #illustrator #artchallenge #illustrationchallenge #drawingoftheday #doodle #dailydoodle #childrensbook #kidlitart #kidslit #book #littlewizard #digitalart #cute #painting #folklore #fairytale #picturebook #artist #artwork

"This is my costume, I'm a homicidal maniac. They look like everybody else." - Wednesday Addams. Happy halloween everyone! (Reposted this because I prefer this pic) . I was really upset not to go to my friend's halloween party last Saturday, I had my costume ready for it weeks in advance, but unfortunately poor Tom got sick and we just had taken on a bit too much. So, to make up for it, I've been in costume all day, eating sweets and painting this. Swipe for a bonus pic of me in my costume! (I had to go to the post box & take out our recycling like this) I'm maybe going to attempt to find time to carve a pumpkin this evening... or maybe just sit and watch The Addams Family. What are your plans for tonight? . . . . . . #halloween #halloween2019 #addamsfamily #wednesdayaddams #fanart #spookyart #spoopy #painting #gouache #arteza #colouredpencil #fabercastell #artofig #artoftheday #dailydoodle #traditionalart #cute #illustrator #artwork #art #instaart #pencildrawing #doodle

I wanted to say a proper thank you for all the support you guys have given me over the last year, sooooo: . - draw this image in any way you would like in whatever medium you would like - be as creative as you want - use the hashtag #ruthhammondillo35k to ensure I'll definitely see it (I'll be following the hashtag!) - I will be sharing as many of your drawings as I can until 15th November . And that’s everything, guys!

Hey guys! I wanted to share this little clay fox ornament I've been working on recently.

Happy #inktober2019 everyone! I wasn’t going to participate this year as I have a lot of different bits going on, but as I was working on a watercolour portrait this afternoon I couldn’t help but do a quick doodle for “mindless” from the official prompts. I’ll maybe do one or two other pieces for it if there’s time! I’d certainly like to do something cool in time for the 31st, but we’ll see how it goes. :) How are you all finding Inktober so far? Are you doing everyday? . . . . #inktober #illustration #inkdrawing #painting #artwork #art #spooky #mindless #drawing #traditionalart #cute #girl #artist #instaart #artofig #watercolour #painting #doodle #dailydoodle #instaart #illustrator #monochrome #ink #illustratorsofinstagram

Day 5 of #helloautumnweek is Pumpkin Patch! I think I just wanted to draw weird giant pumpkins for this one, I was also super inspired by the Over the Garden Wall colour palette as well (have been watching it again recently)! 🧡 . . . . . #art #illustration #pumpkin #pumpkinpatch #spotillustration #illustrator #kidlit #childrensbook #picturebook #doodle #digitalart #painting #digitalartist #autumn #fall #cute #artofig #instaart #illustratorsofinstagram #dailydoodle #drawingoftheday

Autumn week day 3: back to school! What game do you think they’re playing? If it were me it would be original Tetris or Super Mario! Swipe for more :) . In the video you’ll see I made their clothes all bright and colourful because Tom told me he wore whatever coloured coat he wanted in primary school, but at mine we had to wear either black or red. Did your school have restrictions like that? . . . . #helloautumnweek #autumn #fall #kidlit #kidlitart #childrensbook #picturebook #timelapse #artvideo #arttutorial #illustration #illustrator #art #artwork #artist #cute #school #backtoschool #timelapsevideo #artofig #drawingoftheday #artchallenge #drawing #doodle #dailydoodle

I am late because I’ve been poorly the last few days, but here is #helloautumnweek day 2: Rainy Day! I used to love it when it rained as a child (and still do) because all the little frogs and snails would come out ❤️ I also loved getting drenched with rain, haha! Swipe for video! . I am insanely proud of this one because I have never been very good at capturing puddles or that “wet” feel of a rainy day, but I think it worked out quite well with this one! . . . . . #illustration #kidlit #kidslit #kidlitart #spotillustration #childrensbook #picturebook #book #artwork #art #illustratorsofinstagram #artofig #drawingoftheday #cute #rainyday #autumn #fall #illustrator #artist #digitalart #digitalartist #painting #frog #instaart #doodle #artvideo #timelapse

Hey guys! Today, @catsprotection are running their #MoreThanJustACat campaign that promotes how important cats are in our lives. They aren't just pets, they're also family. ❤ You can find out more info about this campaign by checking out their profile! . I got a little emotional while drawing this as I had to leave Grace and Banjo behind with my parents when we moved to York as it's hard to rent and have a pet here. It has been really difficult living without them as they both keep me company while I work, comfort me during my moments of stress & panic, and provide so many fluffy cuddles and kisses. ❤ Grace will eventually move here with us when we have our own house, though, and Banjo will stay with my brother as he's actually his cat (although that doesn't mean I don't love or miss him any less). For now, I get to visit them whenever I go home and my mum sends regular updates and photos. She even lets us talk on the phone! Swipe for bonus photos of them both! . . #catsprotection #morethanjustacat #cat #catsofig #cute #doodle #illustration #illustrator #illustratorsofinstagram #artofig #art #artwork #artist #autumn #kidlit #kidlitart #editorialillustration #drawing #drawingoftheday #adoptdontshop #painting #dailydoodle #pet
