off the shelf

The latest addition to my bookshelf: Eric, from Shaun Tan's Tales from Outer Surburbia. Just gorgeous.

rabbit rabbit rabbit rabbit...

My procrastination knows no bounds and my knitted rabbits are breeding like, er, rabbits. Three done, another fancy merino one on the way (mine, obviously) AND a flump in production. Having just gone mental on ebay for kapok, wooden buttons and loads more wool, I don't see it fizzling out anytime soon either. Fortuitiously, this somewhat pointless activity has just been validated with the news that J's school is taking part in a 'knitathon'*. Now that I've youtubed my way to casting on, off and purling, I'm perfectly placed to take part... (Oh and if you're up for knitting your own bunny, this all started with a Christmas pressie I bought from here).

Completely unrelated, this could well be the funniest thing I've read for ages.

*If you're a knitter with time on your hands feel free to get in touch, it's for a very good cause.

spring sing

A sneaky peak for you - sections from the latest illustrations for Juno's spring issue. I didn't really notice until  I saw them side by side here that they are actually both quite spring-like. Jeez, I must be feeling subconsciously optimistic!

I've also had an update on the book of children's plays I illustrated way back in 2010. After some scheduling issues at the publisher, it's back on track and I should have some finished copies in my grubby little mitts sometime in late spring. Especially exciting as I'd almost completely forgotten about it!
