We had a lovely visit from gorjuss fan Pip yesterday,  she always cheers me up, she’s been so kind to us !!  She spotted some hidden gems while she was here, this is Air Born, she couldnt resist this one, so it was framed and went home with her !!!

She really is super cute with her flying hat on and a little propellor driven airplane flying overhead, when we flicked this page open in Suzanne’s sketch book, it was clear she wanted to fly home with Pip !!


While looking at Air Born with Pip, she pointed out another little miss, show she wanted us to show to the World! So here she is, Poppet, she comes ready matted & Framed, in these beautiful dark wood frames.

She is on sale in our GorjussArt shop now, and if you keep reading, you will find a special offer is on NOW YAY! on ALL our Originals ! WOW!


Runs from 7th July until midnight 11th July (GMT or GBT[“gorjuss blog time”])

Well thats a bumper blog edition today, RAWR and I need to let you know about our Summer Sale, we have a few original ink drawings for sale in our gorjuss art shop, all looking for a good home to go to, so we decided that as we are framing up some of the ink drawings we would give you all a chance to pick up a bargain to complete, extend or start your collection of gorjuss originals.

Click Here to see our Original Artworks!

Suzanne’s pen work is absolutely beautiful and will be the talking point of what ever room you choose to hang them in, pick the right frame and suddenly you have an amazing focal point. We do have frames at the moment, and though shipping is c0nsiderably cheaper for the drawing on their own, we still want to offer some lil framed beauties.  We also have a little stunning Trinket box that Suzy has let me sell, we will get this listed before the sale ends, and of course we will get photo’s up for you to see it. WOW!

We thought we’d leave you with a lovely shot we took of the Sun yesterday, it’s lovely Summer weather here in Scotland & we’re enjoying to the best we can ( I still cant move GRR ) but it’s nice to have lighter evenings, and see some Sun !

Hope you enjoyed all these new gorjuss items, please leave a comment, we love to hear what you’ve got to say !
