Month In The Life: Linda Tieu

We start a busy September in the Month In The Life series with illustrator Linda Tieu.

Linda Tieu is a designer and illustrator currently living in the Tuscan Hills of Italy. Originally a valley girl from Southern California, USA – Linda is a big mix of experiences and points of view. She loves doodling and  does freelance design for clients to pay the bills while working on her personal artistic ambitions by night. She is also a fellow classmate of mine from Lilla Rogers Make Art That Sells course.

Find out more about Linda on her website, and keep  in touch via her blog

Over to you Linda, show us how September went for you:




1st – Lots of laundry… it seems like a neverending task. I most dislike doing housework but got to do it anyway!!

2nd – Most of my free time is filled with doodling at this point. With everything else going on I am more often able to doodle

3rd – My current ‘day job’ is designing for a lot of clients, so it can be a lonely work-at-home type a situation… routine… routine

7th – When I get the chance to go out I take lots of photos…everything can be inspiring and spark a project idea!

18th – I draw a lot, so go through journals fairly quickly. I make my own leather journals so I can doodle as much as I want!

21st – This month I revamped my art blog a bit, cleaning it up and simplifying basically!

23rd – I started a blog parade with some classmates in Lilla Rogers Make Art That Sells class and loved it…will be continuing every month

27th – I try to get some non-digital creative time by trying my hand at painting. I’m a novice but it’s fun to splatter it all around and play!

30th – Otherwise my process is doodling my ideas and getting them into the computer for digital colouring! Here’s a new little birdie illustration!


Thanks so much to Linda for joining in with the Month In The Life series, I love your illustrations and really enjoyed taking Lilla’s class with you!

  1. Month In The Life Snapshot - October 2, 2013

    […] For September, I’ve been paying more attention about taking daily photos since the generous Sam Osborne offered to feature me in her “month in the life of an artist series.” The idea is to show a snapshot of what a month looks like for a creative artist like myself. I’ve shared a whole month of snapshots, plus some details about my routine or non-routine… check it out on Sam’s blog. […]
