Here are some pictures of my third penguin "Garden Bird". Check out the website and the video, you may just see me.....(skip to 2:00 and then 2:11!)

I designed a logo for Betty Beach a while back. She has 15 or so beautiful sheep on her farm in Maine and is selling the yarn online and in shops. I made a couple of labels to show the yarn with the logo.

Here are is the newest edition of books I have made. It's called 'small drawings' and ha a selection of sketches that I really like. I brought them to the Lancashire Artists' Book fair where I sold a few and had many compliments. It is an edition of 10, digitally printed on Fabriano paper.

Some pictures of my table at the Lancashire Artists' Book and Zine fair in Preston. Lots of fun!

owls on bags

Many people have told me that they would like a bag with one of my owls on it. So that is what I have made! Using my new screen (bought in Massachusetts!) I created a photo screen print of my design. The bags are on sale at my etsy store and I will also be selling them at the Lancashire Artists' Book and Multiples Fair in Preston, on Friday and Saturday, 29&30 January. Go if you can!

express to sunday

It's only been a few days since I returned from vacation and now I am working on my third penguin for Liverpool's Go Penguins project. I'm really excited because it is my original design, the one that I submitted way back in September. It will be done by this weekend and I will post the photos then so stay tuned!


I drew these characters a while back for a story that I haven't yet finished illustrating. It was early in the story development and I was just sketching out ideas for the characters. I won't be using it for the book, but it occurred to me that it is a good drawing whether it fits the story or not. The characters and story are written by Jill Tomasetti, who also wrote The Birthday. This is our second/third collaboration and is about two sisters named Thursday and Wednesday who get a letter from their sister Sunday. They take a train to find her!

Jesse and I have been having a wonderful holiday in Massachusetts. We've loved seeing family and old friends, eating a ton, and driving back and forth from Andover to Cambridge. It's only another week that we have here in the States and we still intend to spend time in Maine and Boston. Too bad New York won't work out, we've just been so busy. 

A little Christmas present to myself... a screen and squeegee! The screen is 17x22 in. and the squeegee is 14 inches. I'm so excited to have found these at my favorite art store, Artist & Craftsman Supply in Cambridge, MA. I can just fit the screen into my suitcase! I can't wait to get back home and into the studio at the Bluecoat. There are many prints to be made....
