today I have mostly...

...been working on a design project on the computer, interspersed with mad spending sprees... in a, probably, vain attempt to lift the eternally dreich January gloom which seems to go on forever, and ever and ever...

At last, the green polka dot tablecloth I have coveted for ages...



a gorgeous dish from Jules...

and little bird tile tattoos for my bathroom...


plus some watercolours, pens and the most fabulous knitting book.

Meanwhile, Jackson ran into a door (he did, honest! well, the door handle at least...), and now has a round, egg-shaped bump on his cheekbone. Although he is not complaining, it looks very sore and I'm not looking forward to nursery tomorrow!

In the midst, I found some time to work on the Growing Boy.

juno spring issue



With the deadline fast approaching, I have finally managed to pull together two roughs for the next issue of Juno. They are laying out the magazine this week so I'm cutting it very fine this time... Thankfully the fabulously understanding editor is quite happy to let me go to the wire on this one...
[the wee boy is becoming a bit of a recurring theme...]

sugar and spice

Mmmmm, cupcakes...! New work for 2010 - artwork for greetings cards. This illustration and Slugs and Snails (below) are also available as limited edition prints.

slugs and snails

My first post of 2010, so happy new year! I'm doing some speculative greetings card work, while trying to remain true to my own style and not being too 'cutsy'. Not easy... I'm also being a bit sneaky and using these to work on a style for the growing boy...

[edit: maybe try one with added mischief!]
