Art Walk

I did a thing in the window of Analogue for Art Walk 09. That is all.

Seraphima Astafiena and her cabaret, 1922

Adore this new image by one of my very favourite artists (if not my absolute favourite) Carson Ellis. (via her blog).

Anticipation Stations

I am actively excited for the Anthropologie store that is opening in London next month. I have a long standing anthroplogie crush which is only exacerbated by the fact that I can't buy anything from their site as the customs/tax/whatever is so extortionate. Everything is so pretty and girly and luxurious which is about a thousand miles from my current state sat on the sofa in a hoodie and my boyfriends pyjama bottoms (so much comfier than my own) sporting the ugliest slippers ever (fact. there was a poll and everything). Anyway when it opens I'll be seeking out these things for love love the colour of that skirt (with mustard tights...yes please!)

p.s I'm doing this for these very fine folk. Photos on Friday when it all starts.

Lovely things!

I really love all of these pieces by Australian Jeweller/Silversmith David Neale. The flower brooch above especially. Those colours make me swoon! And how sweet is that wee stag? Lovely stuff.

London Calling

Last Wednesday I made a quick trip down to London for the opening of an exhibition put together by the agency who represent me, Eastwing. The show was great and it was nice to meet a few of the other illustrators on Eastwing. I haven't really mentioned the whole agency thing on here yet (its still very early days for me!) but here is my page on their site. There's some new work on there to peruse including this bear who was made into a rather nice giclee print for the show and will soon feature on tshirts by Scotland's own Oddities.
If you're in London go and take a look at the show! Its on till Thursday at the Framers Gallery on Windmill St (round the corner from Goodge St tube station.)

Richard Sanderson

Not content with being a thoroughly nice chap with an eye for a good stationary shop Richard Sanderson is also a top notch illustrator with some mean pencil skills.
Check out his website for more awesome work.

Student Guide

I did some illustrations for the List's Student Guide 2009 which is now out! If you're not a scottish fresher then you can see them online here. Above is Edinburgh and below is Glasgow.

I did a quick drawing today whilst watching a slightly mediocre BBC drama called Land Girls. The show might be a bit dull but the high waisted trousers, pin curls and head scarves are not! Hurrah! If I had a better knowledge of WWII I'd love to write a kid's story about the Land Army Girls. Maybe I should do some researchin'.

Another What I Wore Today drawing. Today I was feeling girly and summery (its september! Edinburgh is a bit slow on the sunshine uptake!).

We're off to Salisbury tomorrow in preparation for End of the Road festival this weekend. Very excited (especially as the weather looks like it might hold out and stay warm and sunny) and looking forward to seeing bands like Shearwater, David Thomas Broughton, Alela Diane, Okkervil River, Blitzen Trapper, Neko Case, Magnolia Electric Co., The Dodos and a fair few more. Camping! Trees! The SOUTH! Yeah!
(I might be a little over excited about getting out of Scotland for a bit!)

A quick doodle for my friend's band. They only have one song on their myspace but its nice. Give it a go.

His other band are a bit more energetic. They're doing pretty nicely at the moment.

What I Wore Today

Last week illustration star (and pug authority) Gemma Correll started a flickr group based on the tried and tested Wardrobe Remix idea BUT with one important difference. All submissions MUST be drawings. Needless to say plenty of people have joined eager to share their sartorial choices without the stress of posting photos of themselves (myself included). Here is my drawing for today and here are all my drawings thus far. Check out the group to see all manner of exciting wardrobe doodles and join in! Its good fun and a great way to get a wee bit of drawing done everyday. Perfect.


Dear Shuh. I would very much like these boots. Please make them in a UK9 for me. KTHXBYE. X

(will post properly later. apologies for erratic/flakey blogging)

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen is flipping awesome.
