Cat's Eyes

Music to listen to today.
I'm slightly addicted to Faris Badwan's (The Horrors) new side project - Cat's Eyes with Rachel Zeffira. Its a wonderful album (if a little short)



It makes me want to dance like I'm in the 60s.

RubyRaeLove & Mad Men!

I have 2 new loves - RubyRaeLove and Mad Men!

I got this beautiful ring today from RubyRaeLove - Ella Masters' new jewellery collection. It's a black stone set in a antique gold ring and I loove it.


RubyRaeLove is one of my new fav online shops at the minute, there's some absolutely gorgeous and unique pieces (I really wanted one of the agate necklaces too but they sold out, I just wasn't quick enough!)... Read the rest here...

T&C Badges and Stickers

Us Tea & Crayons girls have been busy gathering some promotional bits and bobs over the last few weeks for our big mailing we're putting together, and our badges and stickers have arrived this week. Yay! They're amazing. Thank you to Fritha for counting out all the badges and stickers (I would've probably lost the plot half way through).

Aren't they cute?




Mine is the little birdy! I'm excited to send them all out now. Hands up if you're an art director - we'll send you some Tea and Crayons goodies!

There's more piccies over at the T&C blog, stop by and say hello!

GaGa for V

Over the weekend, I found a little link via the wonderful world of twitter to a open call for illustrators to draw Lady Gaga for her new column in V Magazine.   I found out about the competition quite late on so I've only just got around to blogging it.



Personally, I'm not a massive fan of the Gaga (I am a fan of V Magazine though) but she's always a crazy character in what she wears and does, so I thought she would be quite fun to illustrate, so here's what I did : )

New blog!

Happy Saturday!



If you've been following my blogs the last few posts, you'll know I've set up my blog on my website now so I'm sort of phasing this one out.  It just makes sense to have all my blog content and portfolio in the same place :) I'm going to continue posting on this one for a couple weeks just to give everyone a change to find my new blog :)

Please change your bookmarks/feeds etc to


Thanks! And I'll see ya over there :)

Daily Inspiration

One of my favourite new websites at the moment, is Pinterest.

I just love collecting images I find on my daily travels and now I have a nice little place to compile them neatly into categories. It’s like an ever evolving moodboard.  These are a few of my most recent finds – such talented illustration and lovely photography


Endless fun to be had.

Pick Me Up

Myself and fellow crayonette Rachel Lewis went along to the Pick Me Up graphic art fair at Somerset House over the weekend. We met up with  lovely illustrators Jo CheungEmma Cowley, June Chanpoomidole and Emma Block to had a little look around! An ideal sunday day out.

The place is packed full of illustration,  design, typography, collectives, books, prints and inspiring creative types.   The exhibition is on until the 27th March, so if you're in or around London and get a chance, I definitely recommend popping in.


(Nicely designed flyer too).

I love a nice bit of typography, and there was alot on offer at the exhibition, one of my favourite illustrators Kate Moross made an appearance with her colourful prints.


There's alot of letterpress artwork and screen prints on display. It's nice to see the more traditional hand crafted methods of printing are still around, I must get back in to screen printing this year.

I took a picture of the letter R.


It was alot of fun, I think I need to go back and go round again, there's so much to take in.

Alliterati Magazine

Local Newcastle based creative writing magazine Alliterati featured my little bird alongside one of their new poems from their latest issue.

"Excuse Me While I Put You On This Pedestal" by William Sebag-Montefiore




Although this isn't a new illustration, it suited the writing - and coincidentally, was created from another piece of prose, so it all ties together quite nicely :)

Read the article here

I mentioned earlier that I've been working on installing wordpress into my main website so I can blog from my domain, and its nearly there or thereabouts, so I think what I'll do is, keep this blog running alongside the new blog just for a little while, so all my lovely followers can change their bookmarks and feeds etc.  so please head over to http://www.itslikeart.net/blog

And, I'll see ya there! x

Compound Magazine

Happy sunday everyone!

Myself and lovely tea & crayons girls Rachel L and Abby have been featured in the very cool new Compound Magazine.   The mag isn't out for general release just yet, but you can have a little looksee at the download here.

The theme set for the issue was 'Chemistry' and related to a chosen song.  I love that everyone interprets theme's so differently, it's quite an eclectic mix of visuals (well worth having a browse).

My song was Friend of the Night by Mogwai.


A lonesome wolf.


In other news, I'm working on installing wordpress into my website so I can blog from my domain, so I'll let you all know when it's up and running so you can change your bookmarks and RSS feeds. :)
