Oh my god you guys it is my ACTUAL BIRTHDAY TODAY. Yep yep y'all, I am thirty years old. I am totes all responsible and mature now, obvs. Anyway, my party last night was awesome (hence this post being twelve hours late, ooops) and today has mostly been spent eating and cleaning. I have a few days off though so the fun doesn't end! I'll let you all know more about the party soon but for now... GIVEAWAY!

It's the final giveaway of my Super Awesome OMG Giveaway Week The Sequel, but you still have ages to enter the giveaways so get on that. Today's giveaway is a self indulgent one, particularly as I did it last year too, but screw it. Today, I'm giving away a personalised illustration.

Over the last year I've got a lot more into illustration and have done a few bespoke portraits for bloggers like Maria, Sarah and Nicki. So I feel a lot more confident about giving one away - hopefully it will not suck. You will receive a portrait of yourself in the style of the below - a digital, coloured version, and the original (a pencil sketch). It can be used for your blog layout, or whatever you want. It doesn't necessarily have to be you, but it does have to be a single individual (no family or couple pics, I'm afraid).






Rules
  • You must be a follower of this blog.
  • Please include your email or a means of contacting you in the comment.

    1. Great Giveaway-again! Unfortunately I could only think of one joke :( Here it is anyway: A doctor wanted to write a prescription out for a patient. He reached into his pocket but could only find his thermometer; and said, "Damn it! Some arsehole has my pen!".

  7. Happy birthday!
    My favourite jokes are ones tweeted by the anti joke apple...
    e.g. What did the mechanic say when he couldn't find his wrench?
    Where's my wrench.

    I also like the joke "What did Batman say to Robin before they got out of the car?".... "Get out of the car".

  11. Happy belated birthday! Brace yourself for my favourite joke (it's a little cheesy....)

    What did the cheese say to himself in the mirror??
    Halloumi!

  12. I hope you had a great birthday! :)

    Your illustrations are so pretty, I would love one of myself.

    Right, so this man comes into a pub with his pet giraffe. He orders them a round of tequila shots. The giraffe gets too drunk and collapses on the floor. The man downs his last shot and staggers toward the door. Just as he's about to leave, the barman shouts after him, pointing at the unconscious giraffe, 'Oi, mate, you can't leave that lyin' there!' The man replies 'It's not a lion, it's a giraffe!'

    Ba-dum-chi.

  23. Oh you have no idea how much being one of your little illustrations would make my year! :)
    My favourite joke is this: Have you heard about the magic tractor? He went down the lane and turned into a field!
    (I know, it's awful, but I'm bad at jokes and that one has been drummed into me by a friend over the past many years!)
    I've tweeted also, and can be contacted by email on dinoprincesschar@gmail.com xx

  24. I do love your illustrations, but why are they all the same body shape? I would love to see some other ladies represented, and just as cutesy.

    1. All the people who have commissioned illustrations from me have been fairly slim. That's why. If someone who was a little curvier asked for a drawing, I would incorporate that.

    I wish I could tell you a really awesome joke, but my genuine favourite will always be 'Why is 6 scared of 7?' (just in case anyone doesn't know the answer it's 'cos 789).

    Here is a beautiful tweet too: https://twitter.com/GRTBlog/status/232881644850266113
