Patterns

I made a pattern! Hopefully I'm going to screen print it at some point, so I'll keep it black and white for now.




I actually joined a print studio recently, I'm so excited, I can't wait to make prints! They'll all probably end up on my bedroom wall, but it'll be fun!

Possum in the tea

Because I was feeling silly.

I heard the song 'Possibility' by Lykke Li for the first time the other day while watching the new twilight film and as I wasn't paying proper attention I thought the lyrics said 'there's a possum in the tea' hehe, it's actually 'possibility' but I'm daft and easily amused and a quick scribble soon appeared...
It's actually a lovely song, the whole twilight soundtrack is rather wonderful infact, I'm very much enjoying new Death Cab and Grizzly Bear (and if you take our the killers it would be perfect!)

Christmas Cards!

I was feeling very festive so I made Christmas cards this year!



They're available on my etsy shop until December 18th. Cards are available individually or as an assorted pack of six. They're professionally printed on 300 gsm, with a matte finish and come with seasonal red envelopes. Inside greeting reads 'Have a lovely Christmas & Happy New Year'.

Enjoy!

Illustrativo & blogs

My hummingbird has been getting some love from the kind people at illustrativo, this was posted 3 days ago, but as usual, I'm not with it (click!) yay.


And some lovely people were nice enough to reblog it. These are a few of my fav blogs I've come across tigerroll.tumblr.com, airwavesuperhero.tumblr.com, larobotique.tumblr.com, sleepyghosts.tumblr.com, and misterpeace.com.

Much love!

AphroChic feature

I realise this is fairly old news as it was posted in July, but I've only just discovered it! A very lovely feature on AphroChic's blog [ click]. I came across it when I was googling myself - (like you do!) I was just checking to make sure my website comes up in google.... hehe (which it does, yay!)

I'm very flattered and thank you ever so much to the lovely AphroChic. I love her blog, it's full of beautiful and inspiring things, I could look at it all day

itslikeart.net

So I finally got around to redoing my website! It's fairly simple but its easy to use. There's still a couple things to edit but for now my website is no longer on a hiatus! (I know its taken me like 6 months to do anything with it, but I promise I will try and update it more often)

Ballad Of

So I've been doing a bit of work with the lovely girlies at Ballad Of Magazine, and they're having a party to celebrate their new issue, for which - I've designed the poster! Fuun!


The party is on the 24th Nov at Bardens Boudoir in London, there's a group on facebook you can join if you'd like to come. There'll be lovely artwork to look at and live music to listen to and interesting people to see. I'm excited!

Screen printing fun!

I love screen printing! I printed my little hummingbird illustration today, as an edition of 5 (how cool is that - an EDITION - of FIVE!)


I twittered this picture earlier but I'll try and get a better pic up soon, its quite dark, I took it on my phone. I think I'm going to join the print studio as I have many plans for printing in the future! Plus, I will have more time to experiment next time.

London tomorrow! Excitement!

November's Narc 'Animal'

My latest contribution to the wonderous Narc magazine :)



The work is based around Miike Snow's debut single 'Animal' (and I've just given you the answer if you want to enter the competition!) I'm very much loving Miike Snow's album at the minute, I think it's definitely in my top 5 albums of 2009. The video is quite nifty also.




I'm screen printing again tomorrow! Fuuuun! Hopefully I should have a finished print to show you at the end of the day.

Oof its been a while!

I've been a very neglectful blogger - 2 weeks since my last post?! Where have I been?!
Well, I started a screen printing course last Sat which is just super fun! Hopefully by next week I should have something worth posting up here... I absolutely loooved the printing studio, I do so much of my work on the computer its nice to be in a real studio for once. I've decided I want to learn etching next! The whole process is fascinating!

Heres a bunny



He's a work in progress and will probably make an appearance in my next project. I'm working on a few things at the min which I can't post yet til they're finished. I should be in this months Narc magazine, I haven't gotten round to getting a copy yet though.

I'm off to lovely London town on Sunday, I'm sure I'll find many wonderful things to inspire me.

Hope you've all had a lovely halloween and happy bonfire night for thursday! yay! sparklers!
