The Lizard King of books!


Alas! No Jim Morrison clad in leather (the mightiest "lizard king" of all!) Instead I'm showing you the book I made using the chameleon sketch you saw a few weeks ago.



Poor thing has been sitting around for weeks now, half finished and waiting impatiently for some pages to go in....so I overcompensated in guilt and made it rather chunky....which I'm liking! The spine is 2 1/2 inches thick!




The fishie sketch is still awaiting pages but is a tad more chilled out..I'll show you next week!












Did you know that the name chameleon means "ground lion"! I LOVE that these little intruiging guys get such a royal salute....not sure the king would be too impressed sitting atop lovehearts and lace frills though :)


I'm joining in with Paint party friday today...I've been a right party pooooooper recently and missed a load of them....so why don't you come on over and check out the talent with me?

Hugs to you all xx

  3. I think this is one of my favourites! I love how beautiful it is and that the little chameleon is surrounded by all that loveliness! I also love that it's chunky (was going to say mahoooosive but don't want to overuse a wonderful word!) Just lovely. I'm sat here watching the world go by and know I should be doing lots of other things, but can't resist catching up on my blog reading. Big hugs for a wonderful weekend. Are you up to anything nice? Em x

  17. How sweet is this Lizard King book! I found a lizard tail in my dinning room a few weeks ago. Probably a gift from one of my cats. Then yesterday I found the lizard missing that tail and his new one was growing back!

    Supergroovycool weekend to you, dahling =-)

  31. I love it! And so funny about the chameleon being unsure about the lace and hearts and such. I think he looks pretty happy!
