Coconut Ice

A new limited edition cushion cover, in yummy summery pink on bright white cotton. 

There are only 9 of these available, and you can get them in my Etsy shop and my Hello Pretty shop.

Thank you for the comments on my last post!

New Year

I hope everyone had a good holiday! I found time to do a 16-page book in colour, another big drawing I can't talk about yet, and made some cheese - pretty good!

Although I've been 'back at work' for about a week, I've been loathe to get back to this blog. There's something about the format.... I try to find ways to avoid using the word 'I', I try not to start every post with 'I', but it's unavoidable, and I don't like it. I can't articulate the discomfort any more clearly yet. (So many 'I's in that paragraph.)

Rather than giving up on it entirely, I'm going to try to change it. More pictures, fewer words, perhaps. I'll try to find something that's comfortable. After all, there are no actual rules about blogging.

Just a reminder that if you buy a signed copy of my graphic novel from Kin, you'll get a lovingly handprinted koeksister bookmark as well.

I've been working on a lot of unbloggable stuff lately: a children's book, fabric designs for someone else, a host of my own designs that aren't quite there yet. This is all likely to continue for the next few weeks, so this is probably a good time to wish you all happy holidays.

I'll be back in the new year with some bloggable things.

Book Launch on Saturday

Come to The Book Lounge on Saturday for the launch of these two gorgeous new books!

(I should mention that I have some drawings in one of them, but this in no way influences my opinions. )

New UK Stockist

Don't these look amazing?

I have a new stockist in the UK, Lou Hopper, and she's been making lampshades from my fabric. They're available in two different sizes (and she also stocks cushion covers in the same prints).
