Give Away: World of Froud (signed) Catalog

oh how they move when they walk
hips they do sway is their talk
they glide as a team
they stream and they gleam
oh how they move when they walk

in Jane Davenport's class: I ♡ Drawing
(awesome wonderful teacher and class!)
we are learning how to make our girls look as though they are walking

do they look like they are walking?


I love all my blog friends!
Yes that is you ~

you've been kind and supportive
you encourage and teach me
you inspire and keep me company along our journey!

I want to offer a wee awesome gift, 
if you like faeries that is!

right now has a Exhibition of Brian, Wendy and Toby Froud's art.
I bought a signed 108 page catalog that I would like to give away to one of you!

I will choose ONE winner on Valentine's day. 
I know that is far away, or is it?!

(update: winner will be randomly chosen
January 31st. Maybe it will arrive to the winner on Valentine's day)

108 pages of faerie land!

if you want to leave a comment, but do not want to win this book,
"no fairy book please"
in your comment
or something like that.

(sorry to say that one corner arrived crushed, still it is awesome!)

    Tammie, great post. It's been a challenge with these strutting girls, hasn't it? But always fun with our Ms. Jane.

    Your art is infinite, elegantly captures the movement ... I'm always glad when I see your work!
    Happy Sunday!

  8. They are gorgeous Tammie and they are definitely walking. I have been contemplating the i heart drawing course and I think I will start to save now :) And yes I love fairy books.

  9. Ooh I would have loved to see that exhibition. I love Brian's work, he is such an inspiration. Can you imagine what goes on in that mind of his?

    Now as for these ladies - they are most definitely walking and gliding down that catwalk. Love what you did and really wishing I was doing that class with you. Drawing legs scares me!

  10. Beautiful bodies! I have to learn how to draw bodies well. :)
    You know, I still have my first book by Froud & Lee, "Fairies". My parents bought it for me when I was a child in 1979!! It is like something sacred to me.

  11. wow...gorgeous art Tammie...I love the energy and movement and feel...such a powerful vibe..gorgeous!
    LOve it!!
    Shine on!

  12. Oh Tammie, your blog is so cool! Your walking girls are great and I love their wild, free flowing hair! You are so kind to offer the fairie book! Wow! What an encouraging gift to give an artist!

  13. They look beautiful, as if they're rocking on the catwalk in a fashion show!

  14. your girls certainly look like they are in motion! I love how graceful they appear!

  16. Your girls are very lovely, really like the pencil sketch of them!

  17. yes, they do look like they're walking & moving, much like supermodels

    have a sweet day

  18. Just discovered your blog and your awesome work :) and yes the ladies are definitely walking xx

  19. Awesome sketches ~ love the colors also ~~ thanks, namaste, carol (Share the Creative Journey)

  20. They most certainly do like they're walking--love their attitude too!!
    I wonder if that exhibition will still be going on in May--We'll be there at the end of May--I would love to see that!

  21. Tammie, I know I've said this before but gosh, I can TOTALLY see how your art is growing. Your ladies look stunning - look at their legs and the definition of them. Wow! I'm so very impressed. :)

  22. They certainly do look like they are walking...I love fairies!
    Much love to you.xxx

    Yes, these ladies are stutting down the catwalk straight toward me. Great job! Love the cover of the Froud book, too.

  24. how wonderful! I definitely think they look like they are walking! I love the shoes, too!
    happy sunday to you! xo

  25. I so love fairies and would love to win this one! My comment to you is yes, yes, yes isn't it fantastic how one can learn so much from this beautiful electronic connection we have to the universe!! I can't even measure how far I have come artistically. The most important thing I have learned though, is to TRY something. Just doing the something is the thing, right? Well hopefully, right. *smiles* Norma
    p.s. yes those ladies are moving!!

  26. They DO indeed look like they are walking! You're doing quite a great job, here. :) And thank you for offering such a sweet giveaway - I'll be keeping my fingers crossed...I adore the work of Froud! :)

  27. You definitely have movement down pat. And a faeirie book...I'd be crazy to say I wouldn't love it! :-)

  28. Dear Tammy,
    Your ladies are swaying....
    I love your art and fairies but I am downsizing and letting go of many treasures....no book for me please...
    Happy Full Moon.

  29. You absolutely caught their movement - and beautifully. They look like fashion models. Thanks for the visit.

  30. How generous of you, Tammie. Must have been a wonderful exhibit. Love Froud.

  31. Oh how fun are these two lovelies!!! I love the movement and attitude u have captured! So fun to grow as an artist!
    I'd love this catalogue as I do often feel my gals hover between this realm and that... :)
    Thanks for offering this as a giveaway:)
    Hugs and smiles
