Long time no post!

Hi all, I know it's a long time since I've posted anything on here, it's been a busy few years in our lives, one way or another! However, I am still here, and have still been doing some arty bits! The latest things that I have been doing, are some doodles, which I find very relaxing! All of the animal pictures are A3 size and drawn with Sharpie Markers, for the colouring I have used Inktense pencils, which I love! I will try and post more frequently!

Feel free to visit my Facebook page...Linda Dore Designs........sorry at the moment I don't remember how to put a link in...will investigate!

Tattoo design

I was asked by a friend to design a tattoo for her based on one that she had seen with a couple's names woven into a heart design, but she asked if I could do it with Mum, Dad and Tony instead...........this is what I came up with, this is for you Mandi :)

And now for .............. Christmas!!

I know it is still just about summer, but I have been busy designing a Christmas card with a bit of a cycling theme, in honour of the shop where I now work. The shop is Bicycles by Design , based here in the Ironbridge Gorge. Pete and Rob, who run the company, also run, The Tandem Shop and The Tandem Experience which was my inspiration for this Christmas card design, Santa on a Tandem!

The cards measure 18cm x 12.5cm, and are available from myself. They are packaged individually and cost £1.95 each + P&P, (including envelope). I am able to accept payments by cheque/bankers draft or Paypal, for further info please email me @

Animal bookmarks

Having made the floral bookmarks, I was told by the young daughter of a friend that she needed a bookmark, so I thought I'd better make some bookmarks that might appeal more to children (as well as adults)! These are the result!
