Trinity Arts Market

A couple of weekends ago me and my friend Amelia took some things along to the Christmas Arts Market at the Trinity. It was our first market, and although we only sold a couple of things it was a good day.

We will have a stall at the Coexist Christmas Fayre on Saturday 18th December above the Canteen on Stokes Croft, 11am-6pm.

A jolly christmas Dragon




I have been pretty ill recently with nasty winter flu, but managed to finish this commission and avoid getting lost under piles of tissues and duvets.

The princess doesn't really mind the dragon hanging out on her roof, she is waving her hanky to let the knight and unicorn know which way to the cheese and wine party. The dragon is going to be roasting chestnuts later. Yum yum.

Good Vibe Notes


Another great sheet for doodling all over from Lisa (creator of The Scribble Project). I very much enjoyed sending some love out to Ren, although he is in my bad books after keeping me awake half the night licking himself on my pillow. Bad Cat. Check out Lisa's blog HERE. I am looking forward to the next doodle sheet :)

Book Launch!

I have just received my invitation to the launch of The Dumpy Princess on 14th September! I went to look at the room where it is taking place in Chelsea (how posh) on Friday, and it is a great space with lots of light. I am taking some limited edition prints along to sell, so am desperately trying to overcome my indecisiveness and choose which illustrations to take! It is all very exciting and I am looking forward to meeting Karin Fernald (the author) who everyone tells me is very lovely.
