petra doe

i was chuffed to find a little email waiting for me in my inbox the other week from these two lovely ladies. i've been keeping this illo on the down low until the long awaited release of ballad of... my dios de los muertos girlie will be appearing somewhere within the pages of the latest issue, 'little book of horrors' to mourn the loss of petra doe.

and guess what?! it's finally here! very sad i couldn't make it to petra doe's wake, i have been enviously looking at the photos from last night's shindig - the goodie bags that were handed out to the guests look amazing! i wonder who snapped up my hand drawn tote ... if you're reading this, hola!
if you'd like to buy a copy of ballad of petra doe for your very own self, head on over here

i feel smug

i am so so happy i finally managed to make it down to see the pop up print shop at smug, and ohmygosh i am totally in love with that shop! luke and i had a short trip down to london last week for some fun and frolics. i was delighted to finally meet smug's owner lizzie, and also the lovely louise (from wallpaper rose) who works there too.

i was obviously very distracted by all the pretties during my visit that i totally forgot to whip out my camera to take some photos, doh! so the snaps above are courtesy of louise - thank you. pop over to her blog to see more pics and a selection of her favourite prints at the pop up.

i couldn't leave empty handed so here's a little snap of my swag -  'good digging' print and christmas card (which i am going to keep for myself ha!) by victoria whincup, 'boston terrier' by isobel khor, some washi tape and a sweet little notebook with honeycomb like pages. i also picked up the latest issue of wrap which, if you've not come across it before is filled with beautiful sheets of wrapping paper - far too nice to be used!! fell in love with one of the prints inside by ruth munro. it was hard not to buy more

full details of the pop up can be found here, it's running through to january so you still have time to go and see it, and you really should go and see it!

ohh deer

don't worry, despite the title there's nothing wrong :) very very right in fact.
ohh deer have finally launched their jolly site. they have a whole host of illustrators involved (including me) offering an impressive selection of products, some of them exclusive to ohh deer; it's definitely worth a look
i totally missed blogging this in time for their launch on 11.11.11 as i was in london for a couple of days - could be worse! to celebrate their new adventure ohh deer are holding a gigantic giveaway on their blog, with big, medium and mini prizes. winners will be drawn on november 25th, go go go!
