Would you look at's almost christmas again!!

Once more I find myself neglecting the old blogger (pregnancy, moving house and big workloads are such distractions!) and since my advent calendar informed me this morning that it's only 10 sleeps till christmas day, I decided it was high time I got something a bit more festive up here. So have some carol singers. And a splendid christmas!

It's been a while since I posted something up on my blog, so here is a little owl for no reason other than to cheer up a dark and rainy Monday.

new books

We got back from our hols in france at the weekend and can you imagine my excitement to discover my two latest books had arrived while I was away? This is the first time I've seen Peekaboo since I posted off the artwork months and months ago, so it was a big treat to open up the pages for the first time.. This is my favourite part of being an illustrator for sure : )

illustration friday - ripple

This weeks topic is a special one. Illustrator Kelly Light has asked IF participants to create small sketchcards, somehow relating to the gulf oil spill, in an effort to help all the creatures affected by it. The sketchcards can be bought for the bargain price of $10 and every single penny will go to one of two animal rescue charities. These wee birds are my contribution. If we all do a small act to help then we can hopefully cause a ripple...
Find out more and view all the great art here

Great news! my bird sketchcard has been sold and will be winging it's way to the USA in a matter of hours!

I love unicorns

This is my latest screen print, a girl and her unicorn pal. I wonder if I should have used a colour which wasn't blue, blue or blue..never mind, it's kind of icy.

I did this recently for a birthday card but thought it might fit in quite well with this weeks illustration friday topic, fearless. Brave little Jack, climbing up the beanstalk towards the giant....

illustration friday - cocoon

Here's my attempt at this weeks illustration friday topic - cocoon. It's in honour of my brand new wee nephew Ben, born just a week and a half ago. It reminds me of how peaceful he looks when he's snoozing away in his moses basket!

Illustration Friday - Detective

Today I decided it was high time I had my first go at a little pic for illustration friday. The topic this week is 'Detective' and I'm not entirely sure why, but an anteater popped into my head. So here is Mr Anteater, detecting around for some tasty ants for tea. Hmmm.

Thought I'd post up a sneaky peek of the book I finished recently. It's called Peekaboo and will be published in autumn. This is spread two of five.

pocket mirrors

These are my new pocket mirrors which have just arrived in the post. Mr Fox is featuring again as well as a deer, a new foxy and a lady with an umbrella... fingers crossed at least a few fly off the shelf at summer craft fairs!

dpi magazine

I've been featured in the february issue of Taiwan based illustration magazine dpi. It's a lovely little mag, full of nice illustration and design, so I was delighted when they asked if they could interview me! They very kindly gave me 6 pages to showcase my work. I've still to work out how you get hold of a copy but here are some shots of my pages...
