The last couple of weeks I took a wee bit of time off and spent some time outside London. I returned to Edinburgh (above) for a while to catch up with friends and enjoy the Edinburgh Festival followed by a quick camping adventure with my closest friends in Dorset (below). Now that I'm back its time to knuckle down and get some work done.

A few years ago I wrote a children's book for my Mum's birthday and recently I completed one for my Dad too. 'Nigel's Shoes' is about a boy (my Dad) and his red, shiny shoes. It rhymes (as did my Mum's book) and features various little boy scrapes that I imagine my Dad and Uncle got into as children. Here are a few images from inside.

I've added new work to my website. There are fresh additions to the 'Landscapes' series plus some Editorial images and a new section for cards and stuff in 'Stationary'. I've also slipped in a few extra illustrations from Cardigan Heart. The sketchbook bit is being constantly updated too! Phew!
Thought I'd update a bit on what's been going on with me here in the fine city of London.
I recently moved into the lovely OPEN Studio where I'm sharing a desk with my arch nemesis Ping Zhu (not really! she's flipping ace). We've only been there a couple of weeks but so far its been super. I'll try and share some pictures of our desk once we get it 'just so'.
I'm all done with Uni for the summer and will be heading back in Autumn for the second half of my masters course. Plans are brewing, ideas are evolving. I'm looking forward to it. Above is something I did this term, more a starting point or an experiment than a finished piece (probably worth clicking on to see it better, its a bit long and thin!)

'Nomads' is a wee zine about being a teenage girl in an uneventful town; not much happens I'm afraid. I guess this is a continuation from the kind of thing I was doing in 'Cardigan Heart' so if you liked that maybe you'll like this!
I'm doing a lot of zine based work at the moment. I guess it might be tedious for everyone else but I like the urgency of it, racing through a project and having a little book at the end of it. I'm a bit fixated on storytelling at the moment. So I reckon there'll be a bit more of this kind of thing in future.

I haven't had a good clear out of my drawers in a while so I thought it was about time to attempt to re-home some drawings. As usual if you're interested in a drawing send an email to lizzy (at) abouttoday.co.uk and remember to let me know where you are so that I can calculate the postage costs. At present I cannot only accept paypal payment transfers I'm afraid. Thanks!

I visited Berlin last month as part of a school trip with Central St Martins. Whilst there I kept a sketchbook/diary, as I always do when I go away, and I've collated every page from the book into a zine. Its not edited or touched up so its a bit rough and ready and the drawings are all over the place (the writing is worse) but if you're interested its available to buy here.
