i promise this isn't a wedding post ... but wasn't it just lovely! i've had a good few hours away from work to celebrate, my sister held a little royal party, with a strict dress code of red, white or blue ... i made sure i had some suitable attire to join the fun. twas a marvelous day, my mum even got to show off the meringue to the queen ... oh lols
but anyway, as i'm sure you can tell - my latest illo has absolutely nothing to do with the royal wedding! no no, this is one i have been working on for versus. it's a collaborative project of illustrated playing cards, where you design a card based on it's number. as you can see, i chose #3 ... do you get it, do you get ittt? ... will find out soon if it makes the cut, i have a feeling it might be a bit too weird!
last week the ladies from a beautiful blog called leivos kindly asked me to take part in a little interview with them & i was very flattered to be asked. you can see what i said here.
strangely enough, this interview was published the very next day --- even though it's like a year old! ('in to views' blog asked me some questions about a year ago. but then i never heard anything back from them after i sent off my answers) so, you can do a little virtual time traveling by reading it ... oh and don't forget to lol a little bit at the grey/gray. always baffles me when people spell my name wrong even when it's written right there!
in other news ...
any of you bear lovers out there might be interested in seeing this collabortive blog post organised by the very lovely jessica gowling... or grrrowling as i like to call her! it's filled with lots of lovely bear related things, and includes my 'heidi bear' illustration
speaking of which, i donated two a3 prints of 'heidi bear' to be sold in the ganbare nippon shop, to help raise money for the japan tsunami appeal. so much beautiful work for sale there, so do take a look and buy if you can as you'll be helping a really worthy cause.
oh and skipping back to the wedding for a moment, i was asked to do a few portraits of some royal ladies for the latest edition of cellardoor magazine - you cans sees thems heres
oh and and and ... i'm now on pinterest ... because i didn't have enough things to distract me. n o t
