Tomorrow sees the opening of Turn up the colour at edinburgh's finest bookshop/gallery Analogue Books. I have a couple of pieces in the show (which i'll show you once its officially opened) and am super happy to be in amazing company with some of my favourite artists/illustrators including Micheal Kirkham, Luke Pearson and Nigel Peake as well as awesome friend type people Jez Burrows, Verity Keniger, Richard Sanderson, the Nous Vous guys and Gemma Correll and Anthony Zinonos.
If you're in Edinburgh during the month of August (and its possible a few of you may be what with August seeing Edinburgh play home to the world's largest arts festival and all) you should definitely pop in and have a good ol' look round!

Craft Spectacular!

Yesterday Verity and I took part in the Made in the Shade Summertime Hop at the Roxy here in Edinburgh. It was a good day with plenty of lovely folk dropping by to say hello and some great crafters/artists to keep us company all day. I've just added the remnants of my stall to my etsy store so why not head that way to find badges, cards and prints galore!

Back in Edinburgh after ten days at home in Plymouth with my parents and sister. It was lovely to be home having family adventures and catching up with some old friends. Now back to work, tonnes to get through in the coming weeks (have i mentioned the craft fair this weekend?) and the Edinburgh festival starts soon ish. Life is about to get pretty hectic!

p.s there'll be nice new stuff added to my shop in the very near future. Keep your eyes peeled folks!

Last day at home before I board the train back to Edinburgh. Its been good to have some quiet time (although its not really been quiet at all) with my family in between work. When I get back to Edinburgh I'll be at the Made In The Shade Summertime Hop on saturday and some of my work will be in the upcoming show at Analogue books with all manner of awesome folks!

I did my first editorial for the New York Times at the end of last week. Its just a wee one in the letters section but in case you're interested you can see it here.

For those of you lucky enough to be in the fine city of Edinburgh on 24th July then be sure to pop by the Roxy Art House for the Made in the Shade Summertime Hop! This is the second Made In The Shade event in Edinburgh and I'll be running a stall with Ms Keniger selling all manner of treats. Its going to be a great day so I thoroughly recommend you come along if you can.

Etsy Escapades

Another day another gocco reprint. There'll be new stuff in the shop soon but for now I'm restocking some old favourites. This was my first bear drawing a couple a years ago and its now available as an a5 (148mmx210mm) biro-blue gocco print on recycled stock. Get yours here.

If you're browsing Etsy why not check out some of these gems, if I had cash to spare I'd be all over these for sure.....

Cute, fun porcelain watch by Misamimoko

Rabbit screenprint by Verity Keniger. Ok I admit I already have this but I love it.

Black Swan Giclee print by inaluxe. I love the combination of turquoise and coral. Really pretty.

Where I'm Going and What I Wore

I'm looking forward to heading home on friday for ten days in glorious devonshire with my family. Excited about road trips with my sister and hopefully a few days that look a bit like this.

Had some time to kill whilst waiting for an email today so I thought I'd jump back on the 'what I wore today' bandwagon. I've missed doing these, more to come for sure. I only wish I'd chosen something a bit more exciting to wear today!

Along with the two colour gocco prints I've also added ten hand painted Wolf Dream prints to my Etsy store.

Wolf Dream (edition two)

Thought I'd reprint my Wolf Dream print. The first one had an orange background but this time I went for a nice minty green and rosy watercolour cheeks. Very summery! Anyway its on my etsy now and there'll be some custom prints appearing soon too.

Yellow & Blue

Super bold and bright work by Chilean Illustrator Cristóbal Schmal who lives in Berlin. This tiger chap is all kinds of cute. Via Pitch.
If money was on my side I'd be quite tempted to invest in this waterproof coat from Aubin & Wills. A breton top and a pair of converse and you'd be set!

Found a small pile of the house-hat bear prints today. Thought i'd run out. Only a few left so if you fancy a bear with a fondness for architectural milinary you better head to my etsy.
