Sorry folks, been quite busy…

So it’s kinda a late wish for you all to have a wonderful day…

But I don’t believe in a day set aside to loving people in our lives.

I believe in everyday, making the best of those with us and those who accept us, love us and hold our trust above all else…

Living + Loving Everyday!

Hit Like? Here’s how:




Yup, so it’s been a while…

But here’s something I’ve been working on- Adapting a lot of my work for Digital formats as well as items produced independently with my illustrations etc. In this case, Ipad 1/2 as well as Kindle and Nook etc. Covers ( for my first try in the form of my first print- the Brogues. I thought I’d try this simple one before I apply my other designs…) Others images are used as Wallpapers (Phones & Computer Desktop images). Here’s what an Ipad cover would look like. And of course, like my other prints, this too was hand cut and printed prior to being digitised.

I’d be lying if I’d say I’m not pleased… I’m embarrassingly chuffed to bits actually… just can’t decide which one to use for my own! tihehehe… 😀

Many years ago, sitting in a café, I sketched this as quick and as discreetly as possibly. Whilst having a hot Mocha with a gorgeous, soft, moist slice of crumbly Lemon and Poppy seed cake at a café next door in Norwich where I often went to when I needed to get away from my drawing board (in hindsight, the two reasons I went there was to hide and have some poppy-seed cake with their excellent Mocha! which somehow tasted better from their paper cups! weird… I know!). Every other day, a lovely friendly gentleman would drive up, park it across from St.Andrews and come in to read the paper and have a coffee and we almost always sat next to each other on the same spot over the 3 or so years I spent in Norwich. This piece was a product of keeping a sketchbook (ah… those were the days eh? Those little pleasures you could afford to have… now I struggle to keep a pen/paper in my hand or even find the time for it). But I am hopeful  that one day, I will return to my sketch-a-day habit. Even if it is on an ipad… ;-p

Anyway, years later, here I am. This was my first ever print even before Henry, The Owl. I badly wanted to cut a print and so went through my old sketch books and found this and it brought back all the memories and love I have for a Morris Minor. I later found out at the DeBeauvoir Xmas fair that it was actually a Morris Traveller and not just Morris Minor. Either way, I have fallen in love with these super cute, sturdy little buggers. The traveller even had a back made of wooden ‘slats’. Another reason why it ticked my box- Wood! Now, if only I could get my hands on one… * Sigh!*
