My latest Spoonflower swatch arrived today. It's printed on Eco Canvas (100% polyester, 45% recycled content).
It's a very small scale print, and too detailed for the fabric texture, I think. I considered scaling it up, but judging by the quality of my other prints on finer fabric, I've decided to leave it at this size. I love tiny prints, and can't do a block print this small and detailed.
It's available in my Spoonflower shop on a multitude of different base cloths, as well as wallpaper and giftwrap.

Mostly finishing off drawings from another Book Dash (that's the cover drawing). Before that a whole week of not quite feeling like myself, as if my brain had been replaced by a bunch of evil monkeys, all pulling strings and jabbering away, flinging banana peels and banging the bars of their cages. Sometimes that happens.
Back to the Book Dash: I'm determined to keep doing these things until I actually do finish a book in one day. The organiser described it as a marathon, and like a marathon, you can't just pitch up and run. You need to train and be fit. It's becoming more and more obvious that I really do need to draw every day.
Just not sure where to fit that in. Last week the evil monkeys made me stay up after bedtime inking two pages, which was great, but likely not an ideal long-term strategy.
