Knitted Baby Dress

I cant believe how fast time has flown and my beautiful god-daughter is now 6 months old! She is a right little play-pot, it amazes us each day what she gets up to, not sure where she is learning these things from!!

Here is a little dress that I have just finished for her, a cute number she can wear over her little leggings whenever spring wants to show us its face.

The Little Epic Zine!

Im so excited to reveal a little project Ive been working on the last few weeks, as part of a collaboration of writers and illustrators started by the wonderful Katie Green of Green Bean (you may remember I did a post on her wonderful zines that I ordered several issues of, which you can re-see HERE).

Katie and her sister Jemma have started a new zine that involves many creatives, and I was asked to contribute some illustrations for several poems (written by Lauren Addicott)! Although Im still finishing up the artwork, I can show you the Cover which is completed!


Hopefully it will be out at the beginning of March, once everything is finished up more news will follow! Its such a great little project, which would be great to see more of, and I cant wait to see the finished zine!

Many Thanks to Jemma and Katie for asking me to get involved!

Designs for MouthLondon

A few days ago I was contacted by MouthLondon to create some designs to be used on bags, hoodies etc that will then be auctioned off for charity! 
Despite the short time frame, I gave it a go and came up with a few designs, and I think they look pretty cool!




The Brief was pretty open, about writing and literature, while incorporating the MouthLondon title. 
I cant wait to see what the look like!

The event also coincides with the launch of the next issue of the magazine, and looks to be a brill night. You can check out details on the Facebook Event Page, for location and events and what not, make sure you put yourself on the guest list if you wanna go!
