Barry the Duck

Beginnings of a story, made up one morning by my little duck.

"One day there was a school for ducks and Barry the Duck knocked on the door. His mum's called Fairy. Daddy's called Mr Nap."

I like the names :)
I wonder what happens to this family of ducks?

Paperchase cards

A lovely surprise package awaited me at the post office the other day - my complimentary pack of cards from Paperchase, hooray! I'd not seen the whole range yet, and felt like a bit of a weirdo just hanging around the various Paperchase stores trying to find my own cards so was very pleased to finally receive them all.
There's 2 versions of the yellow bear card, the other is a Father's Birthday card.
It's a whole mixture of my work; some old, some new, some personal, some created specifically for this range...
You may recognise the pair of walking legs and shadows, and heads looking up at the birds belong to me and my boy :)

My big big thanks to Sue and Jehane from Yellow House Art Licensing, and to Caroline, Tamlyn and Alison at Arena!

what i wore today

I've not done one of these in aaaages - mainly because what I wear doesn't vary much from day to day :P 
On this day in addition to my usual outfit, I wore (without my knowing it) bits of tree and some sticky rice in my hair. I don't know how long it had been hiding in that mass of mess!

Bargain sausages

It's been a while since my last post...lots going on! I'm working on a picture book at the moment so that's taking up most of my 2 working days a week. I try to squeeze in a bit of personal work too, but it's near impossible these days...

I quickly managed to do this. Oki's latest words, dropped into a conversation about something completely different. I don't know where he's picking up these phrases...made me laugh anyway :D
