I wanted to do something different than a regular card for my friend Sabrina's birthday so I drew onto a tshirt with a fabric marker. The cats are based on illustrations by Gemma Correll and I added a few more of my own in her style. I like the wee guy hanging out on the back!

(ps. sorry the pic is so crappy, I only took a photo with my phone for some reason)

Easter Birthday Card

My sister Áine's birthday fell around Easter weekend this year so I did a birthday & Easter card in one featuring some springtime flora & fauna making a giant negative egg.

Today's post is brought to you by the number 4 and the number 0!

Belated Happy Birthday to Sesame Street, which turned 40 yesterday. Sesame Street & the muppets were a huge influence on me growing up from the colours & designs to their humour & trippy animations. What better way to celebrate than Feist's Sesame Street version of 1,2,3,4! (I love the way she gets excited at the end cos she got it right in one take)

This is the mask I made for the Tinderbox Mask party (and then also recycled for Halloween!)

D.o.G. R.i.P.

This is the sisterpiece to dogface. I got commissioned to do a portrait of a friend's dog who had died. Then they got me to do one of their new dog, maybe so he wouldn't get jealous.

That last post sounded a bit waffly so here's a pic to support my ramblings!

Wedding Card

This is the Congrats card I did for my aunty for her wedding.
She had it in Malcesine on Lake Garda in Italy which is gorgeous, the mountains behind the lake fade into misty nothingness so it seems like there's no horizon and nothing beyond, as if you're at the edge of the world.

Christmas cards

I know it's a bit early to be bringing up the "C" word yet but here's a couple of card designs I did for the charity Link. The first is a papercut, the second is a heavily Sanna Annukka influenced illustration.
