Illustrated art prints for summer! Bees, seagulls & nautical decor…

Hello Summer! 🙂 We are finally here again and it looks like it’s going to be a hot one, albeit with some thundery outbursts too, but I don’t mind that, as long as they dry out quickly!

Now, I’ve spent a good part of my artistic career so far in the more wintery/Halloween themes and though this is unlikely to change (honestly, the monsters are here to stay) I have had a lot of fun these last few months developing some summer and nautical illustration work for my Teeth and Claws brand, and thought given that the summer holidays are just about to kick off for a lot of lucky people it would be a nice opportunity to share some of my favourites with you.

If anyone is looking for an illustrated reminder of summer all year round, or just a print for the home or a gift for someone special, do take a look at my seagulls, bee’s and nautical prints…


Seagulls

Honeybee

These bee prints are some of my favourites, summer without bee’s wouldn’t be summer at all. Now you can add some fuzzy bumblebees or stripy honeybees to your wall all year round.

Now, I hope you’ll forgive the lack of teeth or claws on these buzzy little guys, but I’ve been inspired to draw some bee’s lately and thought they’d make a lovely addition to my shop of beasties and other critters. So, to welcome the bees I’ve introduced a new category here at Teeth and Claws too… Bugs 🙂 Hopefully more to come soon…

In the meantime here are my new Summer Bee’s, if you’d like to know a little more about them do buzz on over to my illustration blog here – Nicola’s Illustration Blog – Bee’s

I’ve been busy working on some more scaly beasties of late and am very excited to finally be able to share them with you here on the Teeth and Claws blog! Snake prints.

I’ve been meaning to draw some snakes for ages, I’ve always liked them and I think they really fit my aesthetic and ongoing range of slightly dangerous, but beautiful animals, however I’m also very aware of the common phobia a lot of people have of snakes having grown up with family members affected by it, so I have hesitated somewhat in introducing them to my work. I obviously don’t want to stop people visiting my shop for any reason! (I promise I won’t be drawing any realistic looking spiders or angry snakes, haha)

I’ve tried to approach the snake as more of a tribal patterned design than a potentially threatening being, and I hope my snake prints reflect this. Snakes, though sometimes dangerous are still very beautiful creatures… Here are my snakes… one red and one green-

Red Dragon, Green Dragon, Dragon Greeting Cards!

I’m very excited to add some new greeting cards to my Teeth and Claws shop this week! I’ve been really pleased with how well my dinosaur note cards have been received and have been meaning to organise expanding my range into dragons out for some time, and now here they are… aren’t they cute? 🙂

Dragon notecards, red dragons and green dragons, available now by Nicola L Robinson

I know a lot of people love cards with messages and text on them and there are plenty of beautiful ones out there to choose from, but I’m one of those people who looks for blank cards, with fairly simple designs so I can use them for any occasion, be it to say thank you, happy birthday, sorry, congratulations or just hello! so that is my method for creating them too, lovely high quality white card, blank inside, with a simple, yet striking dragon on the front, illustrated by me.

I have both little green dragons, and little red Welsh dragons available… in my Teeth and Claws shop! www.teethandclaws.co.uk

Happy St George’s Day! Here’s a new Dragon Art Print…

Today is April 23rd, St George’s Day! A Day for England, named after the Patron St- St George. Most people will have heard of St George via the old story – St George and the Dragon, where the Dragon meets a grisly end at the hands/spear/sword of St George, well there is none of that bloodshed here, just a lovely new dragon…

This fearsome Silver Dragon is my newest art print available in the Teeth and Claws shop- Dragon at Teeth and Claws

Badger illustrated art print by Nicola L Robinson | Teeth and Claws

I’ve been busy drawing in pen and ink again and conjured up this gruff little character… I’ve always loved badgers, they seem to have such personality. My badger is a bit grumpy, and doesn’t take kindly to being disturbed from reading his book. Who can blame him?

He is also available as a striking signed 10 x 8 inch print from my shop – Teeth and Claws. He gets on rather well with my Wise Owl too…

Last year I did a series of pen and ink owl illustrations, one of my favourites was this imposing fellow- my monocled Eagle Owl! I’m excited to say he is now available from my little shop of beasties as a beautiful black and white art print. My owl print measures 8 by 10 inches in size. Prints are unframed and signed and dated on the reverse.

Monkeys… See no evil, hear no evil speak no evil. I illustrated a version of this a few years ago, and they hang in a little row in my hallway, but I’ve always had the idea of making them available as prints, and they have been on my to do list for Teeth and Claws shop for some time, so here they are. The Three Wise Monkeys, v2.0, illustrated by me and now available as a set of 3 5 x 7″ prints from my shop…
