Square root birthday!!!

Today I am 27, on the 27th, I can't believe it's been 10 years since I was 17!

It's a lovely sunny day, I've had lovely prezzies and another is on it's way.

[NOTE: just to explain the photo. 6 Cadbury's Creme Eggs - my Mum buys me them every year for my birthday, I do love them and would wonder what I'd done wrong if she didn't get them. 'The Way Back Home' by Oliver Jeffers - I love picture books and his are fantastic I can especially recommend 'Lost and Found' about a boy and his penguin, and 'The Incredible Book Eating Boy' about, well, the title says it all. I also got 4 packs of Faber-Castell PITT artist pens I'm spoilt rotten and well love pens and these have amazing ink and brush tips]

Woop woop, full of beans.

I had a fab weekend full of friends and family, pizza and puddings. I'm off out tonight for a romantic meal... I'm not sure where... it's going to be a surprise.

Four new prints

I've added several new items to the shop, these are a few I've just been working on. I was going to make them into mono-prints but I think I prefer them as line drawings.

I'm going away for the weekend to see friends back home and squeeze my little niece. I'll be back on Weds for birthday fun. x

Red Shoes

I love red, I love shoes... mix them together and what have you got?
Sadly though, I can never wear heals for long, I'm a comfort kind of girl. But I love the vamp and glamour of a mean pair of stilletoes. x

I am a very happy lady because I have made my first sale on Etsy.
Woop! Woop!
To celebrate this fact I have designed my own postage label:
And a friendly little card to go in all transactions:

I hope to get a few more designs up over the next few days, and then I will have to give my other illustration work some attention... I have been neglecting it, but it's not been forgotten. Honest.

Under the stars

Here is a romantic little piece that I have just listed on etsy. I love mono-printing. Here's what it looked like before I added the colour.

I love inky messy misprinted marks, distressed surfaces all that kind of thing. Try as I might I always seem to come back to this way of working.

I heart butterflies

I made this print last year but never finished it, I thought that it was about time I did.

It is lovely and sunny outside, although still bitterly cold in places, I love it.
Fresh bright days are a hundred times better than grey miserable ones.

Bring on spring...

Ghost again

Happy Valentines Day x x x

Love maybe in the air but I've been revisiting my lil ghosty friend, I though he would look good as a tryptic, so here he is.

I'll sell prints as a set of three in my shop, I hope they find a good home.

Star shaped pack - BOYS & GIRLS

I'm quite proud of this little set, 6 star shaped stickers (3 boys and 3 girls) in their own little envelope. All my own design and to be sold on etsy. Just look at their solemn eyes, surely someone will want to adopt them.

Edie Sedgwick

While I was ill my clever boyfriend rented Party Girl on DVD to keep me entertained. It was relly interesting - the Sixties, Andy Warhol, the Factory and most importantly Edie Sedgwick.

I won't say much about her as I wouldn't want to ruin the film for anyone who hasn't seen it, but I found her fascinating as a character. Since watching the film I've been browsing the net for glimses of the real lady.

I need more vitamins

I have been ill again, I'm so angry. I ended up wearing a jumper and coat, wrapped in a blanket, sat by the fire and I was still shivering. Rediculous! Honestly, I must need more vitamins!!!

On the mend now though, fingers crossed.

I have been writing recently, which is another reason why I've been quite. I'm not giving anything away at this point because there's nothing definite.

I will however say that I'm trying to work in a little character like this guy:
He belongs to my mum, I think she got him in the 70's. He's older than me and I think he's perfect, don't you?
