You may have read that I will be taking a Textile Design workshop on the 24th March at the Shipshape Studios in North London. Well, I am happy to announce that I will be back there on the 15th April taking part in an Illustration and Design forum. The talk will be lead by myself, Emma Block, and Rachel Lewis. We will be answering questions, talking about our careers and marketing, as well as selling our work. Refreshments  will also be available. Tickets and information are available HERE.

This is my entry into the Don’t Panic Design a Poster competition. The theme was Spirit, so I decided to design a free spirit. A dreamer. The posters are judged by Handsome Frank illustration agency. If you have the time, please click HERE to give my entry some support. I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

 

Ohh Deer have launched their very first competition called Stuck on Repeat.

5 winners will get their designs made into stylish notebooks. The competition is open to illustrators, graphic designers, photographers even textile designers!

This is your chance to be stocked with some fabulous people on Ohh Deer!

Good luck 😀

My new illustration Tiger Kitty is available to buy in my Society 6 shop and in my Etsy shop. This is part of my portfolio preparation, creating more illustrations that are suitable and aimed at the children’s picture book market.

Yesterday, I brought myself the gorgeous Sony Nex 5, as my small compact just wasn’t cutting it any more. The picture, recently had dramatically fallen. Now, I am not an expert, but I will say that it handles very well. It has weight to it, like a proper metal camera. The lens (which is interchangeable) is brilliant. The picture quality is amazing! It was so worth it, and buying it now gives me a week, to get used to it before I take it on holiday. Above are just a few quick shots of some flowers in the garden, and a little shot of my cat, Scruffy, with her tongue out. She has no front teeth, so this is a regular look for her 😀  

             In other news, a pair of beautiful cushion covers, designed by Anke Weckmann arrived in the post today. I brought these from Envelop, and am so impressed with the quality! As a designer and seller on there, it’s nice to become a customer for once. These are part of the Lavender club collection, which you can buy HERE

This amazing piece of work, was a little collaboration between myself, and flyHerofly (aka Liam Smith). It seems an age away when he asked me to do some drawings with the intention that he would add his own style to them. I didn’t do everything on here, and much of the credit must go to him. I drew the tepees, deer, mountains, and sun, but the fun dancing Indians, totem, canoe, and trees, and the wonderful colour scheme is all down to Liam. 
Great work!! Check out the flyHerofly website HERE.
