At the beginning of the week I read a tweet by @amyjpeg (aka Amy Blackwell) announcing the arrival of her first book in her shop. I love Amy’s work, and have done for a long time, so was immediately intrigued and clicked over to have a look. 
Basically, I couldn’t resist it, and today ‘A Pocketful of Black Cats’ turned up at my house. It is truly wonderful, with the most beautiful little black and white drawings inside, and so professionally made. I also, got some lovely postcards too, which will be hung up when I find a new hanging system for my postcard collection. Anyway, thank you Amy, for the book. I will treasure it πŸ˜€

Early in January the wonderful Alicia Rose from iamAliciaRose, organised a Secret Valentines event. Participants were given addresses to send off a selection of goodies in time for February 14th. 
I received a corker of a selection from Harriet Gray, whom I follow avidly on Twitter, and whose work I greatly admire. I received a handmade notebook, a card with a beautiful bird drawing on it, a sticker, and some amazing handmade fabric hearts which now hang above my desk. They fit my colour scheme in room perfectly. There was also a selection of chocolate coins, but I ate those soon after opening :S

These were found in my Research folder, which I don’t look at often enough. Sometimes the most amazing things catch my eye. 
Unfortunately I don’t know who many of the artists are, but many of the images were found via ffffound.com I can tell you that the bottom left hand corner image is a Rosseau πŸ˜€

Issue 2 of Burst Magazine came out online yesterday! Burst is a new platform to promote and support emerging creative’s. 
My feather heart design was used as the front cover, which is officially my first front cover of anything, so that was nice! 
There is also a little feature on page 7! You can download the issue for free HERE

My Polar Bear is now ready to buy as Tee from the All Tropical shop. The team at All Tropical were kind enough to send me one over too, and I shall be wearing it to the Love Easy Fair I am attending tonight. I thought I would look nicely tied in to all my products then πŸ˜€ They are selling them for just Β£20 so be sure to go and grab one now. Remember you can still buy other designs as Tees by me at my Society 6 shop! 
I will try and get a pic of me wearing it and post it up as soon as I can!

I recently got involved in a project put on by the people over at the Illustration Rally blog. The theme was Colours of the Rainbow, and I was given the colour yellow. 
You can see my response in the owl at the top, but I have tweaked the colour to make it pop, as I plan on printing it as an A3 print, Limited Edition to 25, in my Brighton Pod shop. I will let you know when that happens.
