A bit puzzled...

I trekked all the way through the blizzarding snow today (100 metres down the road!) to collect my very own puzzle  - it was very exciting to open it. It’s strange when you see the work as a final printed product!

Back to the eighties

Last weekend I went to a fantastic 80’s themed party. It was hilarious...I have never seen so many legwarmers, pink eyeshadows, big shoulder pads and double-denim looks in one room. Not to mention the numerous quiffed, gelled, back-combed and thickly sprayed hair styles that were sported! I chose to go in attire inspired by Jane Fonda and her workout videos with a hint of the good old classic film ‘Fame’.

So for some reason I thought I’d sketch my outfit, just while I wait for my Mac to sort itself out and start working again...

Hawaiian Hound...

It’s been a busy few weeks again and the start of some new projects this month. I’ve been working on a number of new greetings card designs for various clients as well as frantically trying to print, cut, glue, paste, and diamante-ify (yes a new word!!) my own cards to send this year. And I’m soon to start some new princess and fairy book illustrations ...time to get out the pink paint!

oh and the quick sketch is just a funny memory of mine...the day we dressed our little Bailey up as a hula-hound. I don't think he was amused! oops.

One clean doggy

Bailey is my battersea-rescue-pup. Well actually he’s not really a pup, more a bit of an old man now (nearing on 100 years old), and one of my favourite times with him is bath time. I can’t say he enjoys the actual bath bit at all, but the best part is after, when he thumps and plods and rolls about the bathroom floor crazily trying to dry himself. It’s a moment full of joy...just a shame about the wet dog stench after!
