Lockdown 2020

This poster was going to be used for a lovely picnic in the green with B2’s Playgroup friends and families …..who was to know a mere month ago I would have just jogged around our weeny London garden to ‘warm up’ for the now not occurring 5km on Saturday! I think I will still don…

Rain Rain go away

As I stare out of the window, relishing a hot coffee and a hot cross bun the rain stops for a millisecond! Outrageous! I was getting my adopted Brit moan on about the constant wet but then the yellow daffodils and the emerging blossoms made me smile….. It was half term last week and I…

It’s the FUTURE!

It’s the FUTURE! It is now 2020 and we should all be wearing shiny spacesuits and taking our lunch in pill form! I was sadly disappointed to wake up to porridge and 2 laundry baskets of real clothing…..so in true future time traveller guise I figured the first sketch to do for 2020 is me…

Noel

‘It’s Christmasssssssssss’!! The 1st of December and now it looks like Christmas has thrown up on the house…..the delights that we found in the Christmas bags was a riot of sparkles and tinsel and Poondland purchases!

The C Word

Don’t say it! Yes it’s the C word…..CHRISTMAS …..! arghh ! I have seen the corners of shops tentatively trying to push the first of the Christmas cards into a more prominent position, the ‘ironic’ seasonal jumpers on the rails and of course M&S has decided it is perfectly fine and we can feel ok…

Bright Birthday Boy Bonanza

My lovely friend A asked me to do a wee poster for her husband who recently turned the big 40…they are such a beautiful family and have such a cool outlook and interests, this made it easy to draw and get excited about. There’s nothing like researching and sketching food and fun things like LEGO…

My First Blog Post!

“Hungry”! Boy2 – Thursday morning . Blogging on a rainy Sunday Welcome to the world of blogging I said this morning, now 3 hours later swearing at the laptop, imbibing my 5th cup of coffee whilst slummy mumming and letting Boy1 watch endless Octonauts…. I love drawing and colour and looking earnestly and longingly at…

Who am I?

Hi! Who am I? Well I guess without making out I’m descended from ancient mermaids and long haired narwhales all I can say is that I’m a Kiwi born, London living ‘Lady’ (thanks Aunty W for the title!) who loves to draw and illustrate and hoping to make it possible to do this as well…
