Lovely plants

I'm spending today mucking about with freshly painted paper to make jungle plants. It's not for anything in particular but I recently read a great book called To The last City by Colin Thubron about a group of people who travel along the Inca trails in Peru. It contained some lovely descriptions of plants and birds in the cloud forests. I'm just not sure what to do with these yet, any ideas?

Have a great weekend!

These were some photos I've had on my computer since Bonfire Night when we went to Southend. I love arcades for the colours and lights. I thought I'd share them as it's so grey and horrid outside today.

In other news, I've been interviewed by the lovely Stephanie Levy for her site Artists Who Blog. I'm a big fan of Stephanie's colourful work and I love that she takes the time to get to know other artists. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a lovely weekend!

Matchbox labels

I bought some matchbox labels and have been having enjoying playing with them. It's fun working out what order the colours were printed. This weekend I also made almond biscotti and a robot costume. Hope you had a good one!

Giving it away

I'm getting back into the groove of doing some illustration work alongside the day jobs. I've just completed a really exciting commission (which I'll reveal once it's gone to print) and this was a little self-set piece about ignorance that I did today.

The article was about how we tend to outsource responsibility to people we feel know more about say, economics, or environmental matters than we do. Interestingly, the less we know about a subject the more likely we are to avoid finding out about it. Head in the sand stuff. I thought the idea of passing blame was interesting, hence the balloons changing hands.
