A little something beautiful

I stumbled across this blog whilst on twitter, and was so impressed I felt that it had to be shared! Laura (a.k.a Lupin) sells and makes decorations, brooches and other crafty items made of felt. I particularly liked the above xmas decorations of tits, finches and robins. Reminds me of bird watching in my parent's back garden... You can see more of her lovely stuff at her blog here.

Speaking of birds, I've been enjoying drawing some chickens just lately. When I've done more that I'm happy with I'll put them up on here for people to look at. I'm thinking of working them into some kind of xmas/winter related theme, but not sure what. Any suggestions people?

Sale at JUMBLE!

It's been an exciting couple of weeks! First of all, I discovered that my pie illustrations are to be in the Association of Illustration annual next year. Then, I did a stall at JUMBLE monthly with my good friend Jo Cheung, you can see her lovely work here. And finally, at the start of last week me and my classmates graduated! We all looked very smart in our ceremonial garb. Some pictures of our colourful table at November's JUMBLE below, enjoy!

Some pics of the surroundings: Deptford Town Hall, the Amersham Arms Pub where the event was held.

And on a wall next to the pub, a mural by Gemma Correll! Small world, eh?
