New Emo Inspired Pendants and Charms

These are a few new designs I have been working on. I love to play around with different colour schemes and this new range has a slighty gothic feel to it. Now I just need some names for my little characters! Any suggestions?

Check out more designs at the Mouse Illustration Jewellery Shop

Cool gift ideas from Pink Pig Illustration

Mabel form Pink Pig Illustration has compiled a list of some great gift ideas.  If you are bored with buying the same old things for birthdays etc, then you should have a look at these. 

I think the alarm clock that runs around your room if you press the snooze button is a fantastic idea and think it would definately help me get out of bed in the mornings.
 If only they could invent one that brought you a cup of coffee though! 

PinkPig Illustration has some of her fab designs on there with a little mention for Mouse Illustration jewellery too.

This robot design is super cute from Pink Pig, just wish I had an iphone so I could get one!

A little bit about what I do

Hi my name is Emma Peers (also known as The Mouse).  I am currently living in Queenstown, New Zealand but I am originally from Glasgow in Scotland.  I have previously been working as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer but I have now also discovered a passion for jewellery making.  I have been creating yummy little charms from polymer clay which I have been selling at Arts and Crafts Markets for 6 months now.  All this has given me the confidence I needed to launch my own online business, which resulted in Mouse Illustration.  I will be writing this blog for two reasons really......
1: It will keep me on track with my goals and help me to concentrate more on my efforts online. 2: It will be my own personal source of inspiration.  As we all know with so many online social platforms it is hard to keep up especially if you are like me and all you want to do is be working with your hands, be it either sketching or creating.  But this blog is my promise to myself that I can do both and enjoy it, and hopefully I will send out a little inpiration to my readers along the way.  Here are a few examples of what I do.  I hope you enjoy.
