Long time no blog

So it's been quite a while. I have been busy working, and getting in at half 7 every night, it is quite tiring. I see the shops have started christmas early so im joining in and here is one of my card designs, i am going to make a set of four, get them printed up and put in my Folksy.

Harewood House

My Harewood House items will be on sale in the courtyard gift shop as of next week, these are some designs, they are on greetings cards and button badges, so if you fancy any get to Harewood House, it is such a lovely day out.

Hopefully i will have a select few of up to 5 of each card and badge in my Folksy shop next week as a limited online edition.

If you're interested let me know.

Busy, busy..

me and my very good friends Liz and Kieron on graduation day

What a very busy hectic few weeks it has been, with the Cube exhibition, Mr Thomas's Chop House, Graduating, and working on some new zines, cards and badges which will be heading to a very nice gift shop next week (i'll keep you posted on that).

I hope to do some new things for my Etsy and Folksy shop this week, so keep an eye out for that too. Unfortunately the job hunt continues though, which is taking up most of my time.

Friday, 14 May 2010


my blog hasn't been updated much recently as i have had internet problems which are sorted now (at home), but now i have moved (to Leeds) and have no internet there now. So updating is hard. One more week of my degree left, then i am free. So hopefully lots of new stuff to come.

I've been lonely..

..with no internet for nearly two weeks. But i'm back with good news, my entry to the macmillan book prize has been awarded as highly commended, which i am over the moon about.

Its been too long.

I have been working hard on getting my book ready for Macmillan and so, have been very busy. printing has been a nightmare, the library is the worst place to be, things never work or do what you want them to do. This resulted in getting Lulu to print my book, with it being so short notice it cost me quite a lot of what little money i have left. it arrived today, but its printed all wrong which made me very sad. But i had to get on with other work so here is a poem...

My Etsy shop 'Brown Paper Bag' is now officially open although at the moment it only has cecil badges in it, but throughout the evening and next few days ill be adding more. Keep peeking back to see what's new.

keeping myself busy

What i wore today..

Avoiding uni work not a good idea, but i don't like it and don't know what to do. So here is a drawing of me getting my hair 'coloured' red.

French Rabbit.

I don't think this is blog worthy really but i found a drawing of him in my sketch book and quite liked him so i thought i would share him.

new endpapers

with out the line.
(it may look like it has an outline on screen for some reason. i promise it doesn't)

A strange combination.

This is something i was commissioned to do. I think the elephant needs re-doing (yes that is an elephant in the space rocket) but i actually quite like it, and even enjoyed doing it.


this is an idea for endpapers, they are supposed to be badges...any thoughts?

Squirrel with balloons

This is a spread from my book, which i seem to have been working on forever. For some reason the squirrel doesn't look very clear on screen, he is fine printed out.
