Birthday Card Design for The Script House 2011

So I have been away from the blog for a while. in fact over a month to be exact. I have been on so many adventures over that time I don’t really know where to start. But most of the time I have been fortunate enough to have traveled around some very amazing countries, holidaying and working here and there – Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Croatia, Italy, Prague and Germany to be exact. And planning the building of a 70 square meter cottage for my husband and I to live in for a while. So my apologies for the long radio silence.

I have just finished work on two Album covers which i will post soon. More illustrations are coming for Holly Brown cafe – new store opening soon in the Elements Mall in Kowloon, Hong Kong. And I have finally had a chance to work on my own personal projects I have had shelved for a while. Very soon this website will have a wee overhaul before Christmas and Ill be having a spring clean clearance in my shop to make room for Christmas goodies. Stay tuned for that….

Earlier this year i was commissioned to create a series of Birthday Cards for an online card company ‘The Script House Ltd’. It was a great project to work on and Ill be posting more of them here soon. For now Ill leave you with the above image…

personal work

Meanwhile lots going on at the moment for me with packing & moving house – planning the building of a new one, also heading back over the seas in a few weeks time so working on multiple tasks to complete before we leave.

This is a small spot illustration i made during the chaos of moving house.

A splendid evening

In moments of wellness we made a very quick trip to China – ‘Shunde’ to be precise – which is a industrial port area known for the manufactory of all sorts of furniture. If you would like to go and check it out before it closes on the 31st March, the gallery is open Wednesdays 10am – 4pm and Thursdays 10am-6pm. Hope to have more to say in the new year but in the meantime I wish you all a very relaxing and safe holiday break.

A Glimpse of Gore

We travelled a few times north of Gore to a township called Mandeville for lunch at a lovely restaurant called The Moth – which sits on the edge of an air field and has a museum and restoration workshop dedicated to tiger moth planes and old steam trains.
