Still got stuff to unpack here but the one room that is sorted is the spare bedroom which also doubles up as a great wee studio for me! And this is it.

Today I like....

Building new in old. I LOVE this idea so much.

Great pattern by Hannah Waldron

Incredible sand floor painting by Elvire Wersche. Argh! So precise and yet so easy to damage!
Tasty colours too! More here.

Oh! And yesterday I added five handpainted 'Anja's Tattoos' gocco prints to my etsy shop

New & Old

So in amongst packing boxes, lifting boxes and unpacking boxes I have actually been drawing things. Sadly I cant really prove it as somewhere in between our old flat and our new flat we've managed to lose the power cables for our printer/scanner. AMAZING. So the little pile of new drawings I have to show you shall remain a mystery. Damn. I have managed to find a picture I did pre-move for a zine about favourite musicians. I chose St Vincent because she's flipping amazing and has a lovely face for drawing. Just a B&W dealie I'm afraid but right now its all I've got!

I've just added two different one off digital prints to my etsy shop. They're crazy nice quality and quite big (a3 anyway). They were printed for an exhibition a while back and they got sent back to me today.

Its been a busy week. We moved house on the warmest day in ages and since then we've been unpacking and sorting and cleaning and all sorts. Thankfully the end is in site now and I can get back to work again. Our internet connection got set up yesterday so today I am very pleased to announce the three winners of my print giveaway! As usual I used to draw three numbers from the imaginary hat. And those numbers were.....

16-Tigerlilly Quinn
4- Philip Kennedy
34-Livi Gosling

If you guys could email me at lizzy (@) with your postal addresses I'll get your mystery packages winging their way to you very very soon! Thanks to everyone for your kind and lovely comments. You're all splendid!

Giveaway Time! (again)

So sometime in the last week my blog gained its 400th (and now 402nd) follower. To mark this I'm going to give away some stuff! Hurrah! In clearing out our current flat to move into the new flat I happened across a selection of prints of varying shapes and sizes. I'm going to split them into three bundles and offer them to you fine folk! All you need to do is leave a comment on this here post before 5pm (GMT) on Friday April 16th and I'll draw three names out at random. EASY!

(p.s there are more prints than just the ones pictured!)

All spare cash is currently being pumped into things for our new flat but if I was feeling flash I'd love this necklace from Dot Over Dot. Firstly I adore the combination of the brass with the blue but then there's the added bonus of being able to shift the brass bars into different configurations. Nice!

I got invited to Svpply a few weeks back. Its great. But sort of depressing. Anyway if you're interested in seeing what I would buy if I had lots of money (and wall/wardrobe space) then my Svpply page is here

Lets move to Norway and live somewhere lovely!
I've been spending too much time browsing My Scandinavian Retreat.
Jez finished designing a new print today and damn I love the colourscheme.

"The Eternal Rocks Beneath"

Hello! I hope everyone had a lovely long easter weekend. Been quite for a few days. Its been a busy week. We're gradually moving stuff from our old flat to our new one and sorting through the tat we've amassed so quickly. Expect erratic blogging for the next week or so.

Above is an image for a personal portfolio project on Wuthering Heights. It has long been one of my absolute favourite books and my very dog eared copy stands testament to that. Anyway this is my imagining of Catherine Earnshaw; all wild hair and hypnotic gaze.

I've also started up a tumblr as a way of archiving stuff I like. I'll still keep this as my main work/rambling blog but if you fancy popping by and seeing whats keeping me inspired then you can do so here.
