experimental work



So I'm playing around with different ways of working tonight. This is a little experiment in a more textural approach.

so it's that time of year....



It's getting to be colder and it's only going to get even colder! So here I am today...snuggled in my big chunky mans scarf and big oversized jumper. Brrrr!

sneek peeks


Hi Folks! Just thought I'd post some little samples of work I've been doing over the past couple of days. I'm in between jobs just now so have a bit of time to experiment and develop a few ideas which is nice :0)

little bird



I seem to get very little time to develop up new concepts these days. At the moment I am working on colouring in books and have a new board book to start which has lots of different animals in it :0)
Plus I have some bath books on the cards too.
Here is a little design I worked on last month.

Back home

I've been away for a week to Egypt which was glorious...wall to wall sun, sea and relaxing. Fabulous. Now I'm back it's wall to wall grey sky, rain and work!
It does not fill me joy the thought of this interminable bad weather we have here from now on til around may....so I will just have to content myself with the memories of sun!
you can see more of my pics here

working!



I've been waiting on feedback with jobs so right now I am playing around with patterns, characters and colour which is always lots of fun :0))
Weather here is dull, grey and damp-the sort of weather I hate so it is a good thing I can brighten up my day myself!

work and play


I am reading this wonderful book right now. I'm absolutely loving it! Obviously I'm not reading it in french but the translated version and oh! it's so so wonderful :0)) I love the film so it stood to reason for me to read the book.
Work wise I am ploughing on. Here is a little peek at some of the textile design I've been working. I am also doing kids books for 3 different clients and did a scraper board type illustration for bakery packaging depicting a rural landscape.

Go the hedgehogs!

I watched this programme "Britain's Big Wildlife Revival"
 the other night and really enjoyed it. Among other interesting animal related topics they told the story of the plight of the dwindling hedgehogs which I find really sad. I am a life member of the British Hedgehog Preservation society and I would hate to see a decimation of the population to the point of extinction....they said it could happen by 2025  if I remember correctly. so here is my little hedgehog character to raise some awareness. Please look out for our little prickly friends!

fruit, plants and work

Well I am still mega busy with work so can't show anything here. It'll all get printed at a similar time and then I'll have tons to show I hope. I have other jobs that have been printed but sadly I am not getting copies...I hate when that happens. You ask but then they don't send you them :0(
then you have to go searching online to see if you can find them.
For now here are some pics taken in my garden plus my fruity overload....will need to get stuck into this lot!
