Hey guys and welcome to a  new Wren & Wilson studio vlog this vlog is my summer vlog of what I've  been up to for the last couple of months   so mostly I have been working on my Unofficial  Sir David Attenborough colouring book and it   has been quite a delightful time of um drawing  and getting to just make what i want to make and   uh see this thing start from nothing just a  twinkle of an idea into a whole entire book   it's quite exciting and I'm excited to show you  my progress throughout this vlog it has been   a fun journey of exploration and learning about  animals and habitats and discovering new things   like have you heard of the Brazilian Pantanals  I had not um I feel like I've seen it with my   eyes I just didn't know that what that  is what it was called but that's what i   discovered this summer I've also been adding  some wholesome activities to my working life   especially during the summer to try  and make the most of the sun outside   and i have been kind of going to my studio but not  so much because it is hot um yeah so that is all   coming up in today's vlog thank you so much for  joining me do you like my plans this bad boy i   got from the garden centre in the bargain section  because it was dying and it was really small i   know it's doing so well and has come back to  life and it's massive yay yeah so uh shall   we get to work then and go into this vlog and  see what I've been up to oh yes okay let's gooo hey guys um so I've been feeling a little bit  trapped working from home just because the studio   is so ridiculously hot that I cannot bear to be  in there for any more minutes than I need to be   so I've just been going into the studio to  pack orders and then leaving as quickly as   possible before I die from heat which has  meant that I've been working a lot from home   and mostly on the couch which isn't very good  and doesn't make my brain feel very nice but uh   it needs to be done because I'm trying to finish  my colouring book so I want to make a plan to make   my business working time more wholesome because  it's summer um it's sunny today but it's not that   warm um but I feel like I'm missing out on the  sunshine so I have got my sketchbook I'm gonna   go have breakfast outside and come up with  a plan for the week of how I can mix drawing   my colouring book with being wholesome and being  outside it's mid way through august now and I have   given myself a deadline of the end of august  to finish my colouring book and I do feel like   I'm almost there but there's still a lot  of work to do and i need to hunker down   and get it done so I'm going to write a to-do  list so i can make sure that i will get finished   in time and at the same time be wholesome and  live my summer life outside and not being stuck   inside all the time so let's go outside write a  to-do list and get this week started yeah yeah so   I've come to look at the spare studio space  that's just come available at the end of the   row where my studio is um basically I'm  thinking of maybe... - it is quite small,   it's quite small - uh I was saying um I'm  thinking of maybe moving into a smaller space   because my rent is going up for my current  studio this month and also we're thinking of   moving house soon so I wanted to save a bit  money but I think this is a bit too small I mean I could put my shelves along the wall   and the desk in the window because it probably  would fit however my current studio is just   so beautiful and so big I don't think  I could move I just love it too much this space would make a pretty  cool space for a painter though   if you didn't have much stuff  to store would be pretty nice but hello sunny beautiful studio  space i don't wanna say goodbye hey guys I'm back in the studio today because  I want to print out all of the colouring pages   that I've made so far just so I can see  if I've missed anything if I need to add   anything if I need to change anything um I think  sometimes when the work is on the iPad you can't   you can't see it properly when it's  not compared with all the other pages   so cutting them out and printing them out and  putting them all down on the floor I think it's   going to be super helpful for me to see uh what  the book looks like so far and what I need to do okay so it turns out that printing these out  was very useful because I have noticed quite a   few things that I need to change and some things  that I'd like to add for example on this Swiss   Alps picture I haven't put the location  name so I need to add that to the top   and I also need to add the fact  that this animal is an alpine marmot   I also think this grassy bit would look  better with some meadow flowers on it and I think maybe this rhino one would look  so nice with some flowers on there as well   some extra colouring goodness um that  Australian one you can see there I   don't like the picture of David there so  I'm gonna change him maybe give him some   better eyes and this Antarctica one is missing  the location name as well need to add that in might turn that little penguin around  as well because it was facing the same   way as the other one the Alaska  one also needs a location tab there are a few more pages that i want to add  there's going to be a suitcase contents page   and a label a luggage page there's a nice  opening and closing page section of the book hey guys um I just got back in from the  studio so I apologize if I look a bit bit   jaggled - bedraggled and um windswept because it  is windy outside but i have just got the post from   the draft printing of the colouring book and  I am nervous and excited to see it um it is a   draft copy so it's not going to look all pretty  beautiful like it doesn't have the front cover   and stuff um but it is exciting  to see what it looks like and   this is the copy that I am hoping to  send to a publisher yes so let's see   what it looks like I'll find my phone so I  can record over the top for an unboxing okay hello draft copy of the book yeah this is just printed from like a document printing  printer place rather than the place I usually get   things made but they had an option for the square  spine which makes it look like a real book and   it's quite exciting can you see it from there I  hope you can see it oh let's have a look inside it looks nice this book I wasn't expecting to look so good as  a draft copy but feels nice and I'm actually very   excited to send this to the publisher and it's  quite thick as well I was worried worried that it   was going to be too thin um but it is not too thin  and it looks freaking sexy I am gonna probably   put an over-the-top camera to show you this from  above rather than just looking at my face because   I'm sure my face isn't all that interesting but  um thank you printers I think I think I didn't   even need to add any more pages I think we're  good, I think we're good, I think we're going   to send it to a publisher, I think we're going to  write an email to our the publisher and send it   tomorrow, not even an email I don't even know  what I'm talking about not an email um a post   a snail mail, send it in the mail, send it  in the mail snail uh yes I am excited you   can probably tell that is my tomorrow's  task of sending it away to the publisher thanks so much for watching this vlog guys I hope  you enjoyed it before you go I wanted to show you   my WrenTober October prompt list I shared this  over on Instagram I don't know if you follow me   but this is my prompt list that I'm going to  be doing in October it is an every other day   prompt list because I find everyday art challenges  stressful as heck and I never ever finished them   so I thought every other day will be nice  so I'm planning on having a bit more fun   with this challenge um because in previous art  challenges I've mostly just stuck to digital art   however with this one I am planning on  making the prompts with clay for at least   some of the days so I've got some air drying  clay and I'm gonna make the prompts from air   drying clay and I'm very excited about it also  I think I'm gonna get some plasticine to do my   swamp thing and I might do some painting as  well just to try and free up my brain um and   do some things that I don't usually do and I'd  be very excited if you guys want to join me um   check out the prompts they're quite fun and then  the so the first one's for the 1st of October   if you'd like to take part just to have a little  girl and pop it over on Instagram and tag me in it   um yes I'm excited about that I might make,  well I will make a vlog about that next month   um yes thank you very much for joining  me and I hope the rest of your day   evening morning afternoon afternoon weekend  whenever it is it's nice for you okay I love   you I hope you have a pleasant time that is  a scrunchie throw it away I love you goodbye
