I rather like these three things.

My wonderful friend bought me this antique fan necklace. It actually opens and closes...I really love it and I plan to wear it everyday. 

During my tidy up the other day, I found this little piece of coral and a wooden yellow hexagon. I like the shapes of both these things. I'm thinking of turning them in to a necklace. 

Just lately....

.....I have been lost in a little woodland world.

A good sort out and I found...

Portrait of Space, 1937

I had a good sort out of all my books the other day......and my work, room and cupboards in general. Things like this only happen on the rare occasions were I want to tidy. I came across a little booklet from 'The Art Of Lee Miller' exhibition I went to a few years ago at the V&A museum in London. 
I really love her work. There's something quite magical and otherworldly about it. She was a model, a journalist and a photographer.

 'Portrait of Space' is my favourite.

I have just discovered the music of Karen Dalton.

I highly recommend it.

Draw draw draw and a blue beard.

The snow is melting here a bit now.....although you still need ice skates to walk on the pavements.

A cloudy evening.

A couple of new friends.

I find sewing very relaxing.

Here are a couple of new woodland friends ready to be framed.....or hung up? Not sure yet. They haven't got names yet either. I'm too indecisive for my own good.
I'm currently working on a cloud and moon and raindrops mobile. Watch this space.

I have often struggled when it comes to drawing ladies or girls for some reason. I hope these ladies look like ladies.

Hello Sir.

Here are some recent designs for greeting cards.
Hopefully they will be going off to the printers very soon....
After that they will be sitting in some lovely little shops!

I have enjoyed working in pencil recently. I think it's because of my nice Muji wooden pencil.

I've been cutting ad sticking and making these collages of the buildings in Amsterdam. 
I love it there. The houses are all miss-matched and squashed together. They have great roofs too.

Cloud people.

Lately I've been mostly making some stuffed little cloud people. I can't decide weather to put them in a frame or make a mobile. I'll probably make some more and do both. I like sewing. I find it rather relaxing.

The train journey I made from China to Vietnam is one I shall never forget.

Many exciting things...and some things I have learnt.

1.    It was freezing today. I wore a lot of my clothes all at once and looked rather silly. It's made me realise how much I miss camping on the beach, strolling along the sand and swimming in the sea.....even in England!
2.     I would love to own this car. Mine is old and will break soon I think. It is green though.

I gave been busy drawing and painting some card designs to be printed this week! I'm rather excited about this and have been looking for more shops that would like to sell my work. 

When I went traveling around South East Asia, I saw how the people work for so many hours every single day. I finish work at 3.30pm....making me realise I have PLENTY of time to be getting on with illustration work. Just thought I'd let you know.

So, I shall post some pictures of my cards on here when they have been printed. Exciting!

I like receiving cards. Do you?

I've got a thing about making cards at the moment.....
