bright bullfinches

I had a look out in the garden this morning, and it's a very cold, grey day. Apart from some very bright, lively bullfinches hanging out in the hedgerows. I just love their bright peachy orange chest, so I had to do a quick sketch!

Cakes ....

...yum! Unfortunately, I drew these cakes looking at a book, I didn't have the real thing handy! I have a very sweet tooth, but I'm trying to have a healthy January!!!

Thank you Lois...

this is a little thanks to my daughter Lois for her beautiful bird drawings. We scanned them in, added some lovely colour and pattern, and our first ever design together was sold at Heimtextil. She is very pleased and wanting payment to buy some toys!!!

I love whales...

...I've been reading about them. I think they are amazing creatures, and it's such a shame many species are so endangered.

Retro kitchen

I'm working on some food/ utensils/ kitchen designs at the moment for Lucy Woodhouse. I love retro 50's style imagery, I love the simplicity of it. Trying to have that kind of feel in some of my new designs...

New floral...

A little fun floral I worked on for the latest tigerprint competition. I loved the bright colour palette.

Happy New Year...

... after a lovely break with friends and family I'm looking forward to doing some drawing again. I can tell I've been missing it, because I keep doing my daughter's colouring books!!!
