Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
2010 is the year of the Tiger.
My favourite tiger has to be Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes :)

old and new

Sorry for the lack of posts lately...I've been busy writing my Christmas cards - around 60 this year(!) - and sorting out various stuff and things. December is always a bit hectic!
Still got a few more Christmas pressies to buy but I'm reluctant to go into town to face the ridiculous chaos and crowds. And it is freezing outside, brrrr!!

Here's a new illustration of a lion I did, and an old sewing on felt of a lion and dolphin I found whilst rummaging around in my studio. The felt pieces are based on constellations. I used to sew quite a bit, but haven't done in a while. Maybe I will get back into it in the New Year...

My new shop

My Christmas cards are now available in my brand new Etsy shop!
The colours came out a little darker than I's tricky getting the colours right, from screen to print.
Lesson of the day - must be more organised and not leave things till the last minute!

Christmas cards

I saw this Christmas card of mine for James Ellis Stevens at Paperchase in Goodge Street today yey!
Do people send Christmas cards to their teachers??
This design is also available as a pack of 5 mini curved top cards here.

Here are the other cards. Some are available addressed to people such as grandson, granddaughter, friend, special couple and the one I love.

(This one is also available as a pack of 5 mini curved top cards, although it doesn't seem to be listed on the website.)

These cards are available here and here.

Let it snow!

Oops, I forgot to crop the images so please excuse the messy edges...
Anyway, here are some personal Christmas card illustrations I've just done. I've ordered them to be printed as greeting cards. I hope they come out ok...I am a little nervous!! Typically it's all last minute stuff with no time to spare for any mistakes. hmmm.
But I like to at least make an effort each year. I enjoy sending Christmas cards as it's a great chance to get in touch with people and actually write something using a pen :)

I also have some Christmas cards for sale here.
They are the cards I worked on for James Ellis Stevens at the end of last year. I mentioned it in the early days of my blog. There are 6 different designs. I'll post about them properly the next time...(it's 3am and I need to go to bed!)
