Month In The Life: Dreaming On A Star

Today Tina Devins from Dreaming On A Star continues my Month In The Life series for May with a visual diary showing her creative life throughout the last month.

Tina is an illustrator and surface pattern designer from Ireland. She is a fellow graduate of the Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design and designs under the name Dreaming on a Star which she beautifully describes as a happy, innocent place full of hopes and dreams!

Over to you Tina, tell us how May went for you:

“Oh I’ve had such a productive month! And it’s only by recording it that I’ve realised this. So thank you Sam for this opportunity!

Well May started off lovely with some glittering sunshine on my sparkly Converse! I think this twinkling magic kindled my creativity because I don’t think I’ve ever designed as many patterns and illustrations before!

I entered competitions, I submitted work to open calls, books and blogs.  I revamped my logo. I wrote a blogpost that inspired people. I even got a ‘like’ from Lilla Rogers! Ha!

I spent most of May getting my Etsy Printable shop up and running and I’m so glad to have achieved this.

I’m so looking forward to June and all that it has in store!” 


Thanks so much to Tina for joining in with the Month In The Life series, congratulations getting your shop open and thank you for supplying such a colourful and fun calendar graphic for the post – it’s fab!

      Hi Dawn. Thanks a million. Sometimes you feel like you get very little done some days. But over the course of a month, I suppose these little things add up!!
