 Another new image for you. This one's actually a few months old. I forgot all about it (despite the damn thing taking a good two days to draw). 

 Got my eye on one of these ace hand-painted wooden badges by Edinburgh-based illustrator Eleni Karlorkoti

 Verity's Turn Up The Colour print would brighten any room wonderfully on a dull, autumn day.

P.S I have just ONE house-hat bear left in my etsy shop.

New Work

 If you head over to my flickr page you can find a few new bits and pieces from recently and no so recently (the one above being from early August). Do head over and tell me what you think! Hopefully there'll be some new prints and so on trickling onto the blog in coming weeks. Run up to Christmas and all that.

Family Tree

You can now buy my Wuthering Heights Family Tree as an A3 giclee print from my Etsy Store. You can also see the series of illustrations from which it is taken on my website. It's a bit pricier thank my other prints due to it size and resultant ink-heaviness but if you order one I'll be sure to slip in some kind of printed extra to make it worth your while!

(p.s hurray for bloggers improved image uploader. bigger blog images=happy illustrator)

Illustrated Treats

Urgh. BAD blogger. I am not so good at keeping up with things at the moment. I'm currently working my way through a big, exciting job (which I wont be able to show you for a while. Boo) as well as coming up with new things for the shop in time for christmas (what?) which you will definitely be seeing relatively soon. So whilst there's no work of my own to show you right now here's a round up of tasty illustrated treats for you to enjoy! PS there are still some drawings for sale here.

Dreamy print triptych by Elina Minn for Little Paper Planes.

I badly want this great totebag from James Brown. A girl can never have enough totes.

A wee pic I did last week as a distraction from doing the work I was meant to be doing. I'm excited about Autumn and the return of hats and scarves!

A quick reminder that all etsy orders over $14 will, until September 15th, recieve a free original drawing by me. All you have to do is include a message saying 'Blog reader treat' with your order and I'll draw you something special (you can even include a specific request...within reason).

We're heading down to Dorset on thursday for End of the Road at the beautiful Larmer Tree Gardens (picture above from last years festival). The weather forecast is looking pretty pants right now (not ideal for four nights in a tent) but hopefully that won't prevent us from enjoying a few of our favourite bands. I'm crazy excited for the Mountain Goats (always wonderful), the New Pornographers, Ra Ra Riot and Wolf Parade, among many many others. The food there is great too, looking forward to my annual love-affair with the scandinavian canteen tent.

Ooh! Nice stuff in the Zara autumn collection. I flipping love this time of year when jackets and scarves creep gradually back into use and I can dig out my beloved thick, wooly tights. image via Black Eiffel

Beautiful animal alphabet poster from the unstoppably wonderful Rifle Paper Co. I'm dreaming of this on my studio wall. I think the elephant and the bear are my favourites.
