Welcome to Sea Shanties and Sausages Illustration, beautiful personage!

Sea Shanties and Sausages – my website sharing space for all things colourful and illustrated and nautical and brill and dachshund-related…

So yeah! I love to draw pictures. Always have. I also love sausage dogs. But not sausages, cos I’m a vegetarian (although I’m not averse to a Linda McCartney veggie sos on the BBQ). So the Sausages in Sea Shanties and Sausages is about dachshunds.

On this here lovely website I get to share all the stuff I love to make. The pictures I’ve drawn. The stuff I’ve painted and made for gorgeous, sparkly people who’ve got in touch and said ‘will you make this for me?’

It’s a lot of fun making and creating bespoke illustrations for folk and getting to hear all their fun and frivolous, sweet and sagacious family stories. I love this (and all the other) part(s) of my job. (Addendum: I do not like doing tax returns so if you know of a good accountant, let me know.)

I also love drawing cats and dogs. You’ll see them pop up pretty frequently in my stuff.

Here’s all the other shidangles you’ll find here on my Sea Shanties tinterplace:
