New things

A couple of new characters I've been working on recently.. hoping to see them on some birthday cards soon.

Sainsbury's stuff

A nursery rhyme book I did a while ago has been re-jigged for Sainsbury's. I also illustrated a nativiy story which has been made into a cute little sticker pack. It comes with a mini book, two background scenes and four pages of re-usable stickers, loads of christmas fun to be had! This is most exciting because (a) I have wanted my work to be made into stickers for AGES and (b) Sainsbury's is a hop, skip and a jump along the road from us and I go there most weeks. Will be keeping a beady eye out for this pair :)

back to work!

It would appear that an entire year has passed by in the blink of an eye. The sleepy little bundle that was Elsie seems to have morphed overnight into a determined, noisy and mobile one year old, which means it is time to dust off my paint set and get back to the drawing board! I've been dipping my toe in over the past few weeks and it has been really quite lovely to be in the studio again. My paints and pencils are just as I left them and despite feeling a tad rusty, I am thoroughly enjoying the chance to do some illustrating after a super special year. How better to kick start my blog than with a pic of my wee lady :)
