I did a quick illustration for the Eastwing news page yesterday. Everyday one of the EastwingToday is October 20th and on this day in 1967 illustrators posts an image relating to that days date. Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin caught film footage of what they claimed was a 'Bigfoot'.
I also (finally) did a new picture book report post. Only its not finished.

It seems far too early to be chatting about christmas cards but nevertheless here we are! These three are my Christmas cards for this year. They'll be on sale in packs of three (one of each) in a few days. Once I get round to packing them all into cellophane. Although it is, as mentioned, perilously early for festive things I'm putting them on sale this month so that lovely folk outside the UK can get theirs ordered in time to still be able to send them out! Makes sense eh?
Today I am wishing I didn't have giant feet and I could get me a pair of these super cute wellies from aigle (ok actually if by some miracle my feet did suddenly become normal size I'd probably go out any buy something more exciting than wellies...but they'd be on my list for sure.)
I am also wishing that the UK shipping on these nice, simple watches wasn't TWICE the price of the watch itself. Thats just plain stupid (americans who want to buy me presents? i want the purple or the grey please.)

This is my spread from this year's Eastwing promotional brochure. Having been super unhappy with the work I submitted last minute (the result of a combination of having only just joined the agency two days before the deadline and a debilitating lack of confidence in whatever i was trying to do) I am happy to say that I'm far more satisfied with this year's efforts. The brochure for 2010/11 sees all the Eastwing illustrators take on certain dates within a month and illustrate the events on those dates. I did the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, The publication of the Great Gatsby and the great Fire and Earthquake of San Francisco.
