At Home On The Sea

I have some new things to share with you. Above is a new print which is now up for grabs in the shops. It's titled "At home on the sea" and measures 8" x 10". Printed on archival watercolour paper. Will be sent out signed and sealed snuggly in a hardback envelope, accompanied with one of my 'fresh off the press' moo cards. I love Moo.

Down below we have some serious card making sessions on the go. I've been supplying cards to a couple of shops recently and after a lot of pondering I have decided it is nearly time to share these treats with you online. So far the themes are birthdays, hello's and random. I might branch out I might not. I'll keep you posted for when they hit etsy and folksy.

PS - Remember the Printer hiccup give-aways? I got more. Email me you address if you desire one. (I got millions, please desire one)

Good Afternoon Mr Postman

Today some treasures I've been eagerly waiting have arrived. Above is the beautiful book illustrated by Sun Young Yoo. The Red Shoes - a Hans Christian Andersen classic. I stumbled across it on the blog Book by it's cover, which is a wonderful site for opening your eyes to some of the most beautiful books out there. I didn't think it was possible but it's even more stunning in the flesh. I'm very fond of collecting beautifully illustrated children's books, so much so I need more book shelves.... sigh.

Below is another gem of a purchase. I mentioned a while back about being obsessing over fonts and writing at the moment. This book should do the trick. There's something really theraputic looking through giant books that delve into artist sketchbooks and playing with text. I can look at them for hours... and I plan to take this to work and do just that :)
- Talking about work, after my shift I plan on going to see an 11pm screening of Moon by Mr Zow-I mean Duncan Jones. Robots, spaceships, THE MOON, Klint Mansel, trouble, coughsamrockwellcough - Yus!

I've been playing around with photoshop this morning accompanied by a mug of tea and the sound of rain pelting against the windows. Never been more thankful for the rain, it's been so hot these past few days and I started to resemble a dribbly sticky mess of a human at work. Here's a hoping we have a break from the sun! (just a mini break mind you)

Anyway, I thought I would show you what I was getting up to. Above is the result of a random doodle session I had yesterday when I was wrapped around a fan frantically trying to cool down. It's just a little something, but most things need to start off small. I'm in the process of trying to come up with a decent selection of cards for the near future (I hope). Apart from writing 'happee Birfdeee" in the same font every 5 minutes overall I'm not making much progress. Fingers crossed folks!

I might go out and treat myself to a ginger bread latte... mmmmmm
