butterflies on the side

An unusually 'technology-based' illustration for the autumn issue of Juno; both in subject and medium. To soften it, added hand-drawn butterflies, plus some extra on the side - pulled out of the original illustration in Photoshop so they can 'flit' around the text of the article.

Meanwhile, the design job (a music society leaflet) has reached the final text tweaks stage before hitting the printers, which means come August the real hard work begins. It's been a while since I've done any earnest self-promotion work so, for starters, there's a revamped website, art cards and an exhibition in the pipeline. It should tie in nicely with the publication of the book of children's plays - the first printer's proof of the book has arrived at the publishers and has had some lovely comments already over on their Facebook page.

two Js and a mouse

The final illustration for the book of plays. J appears in it no less than three times! And it includes the mouse I brought back from Budapest, the knitted rabbit I made, Brian the bear and, sticking out of the bottom of the quilt, a new knitted rabbit challenge (I will make him!).

Meanwhile, another design job in this weekend - out of the blue and most welcome.
