Hi everyone!

2013 is the year I push my illustration, I finally have time and space to create and that’s what I’m gonna do!

I have a giveaway on my illustration page with some handmade and screenprinted goodies (pictured below), would be cool if you can pop over and take a look :)

Some bits and pieces in my sketchbook from lately. I’m working towards a bigger zine than I’ve ever worked on before, which will be a mixture of photographs and drawings, so it’s a pretty exciting project.

This is my lovely little haul from Birmingham Zine Festival yesterday. I didn’t have a table (don’t ask, long story…) but I went along to check it out. There was generally quite a high standard of work which was good to see, and I got to meet some of my heroes! I also met with Karoline Rerrie (of Girls Who Draw fame) and Kate Hindley (check her work out here) for a good ol’ chinwag, so that was nice!
The work above is by these good people:Sandra DieckmannJamie MillsIsabel GreenbergKristyna BaczynskiAnd Girls Who Draw (link above) with a lovely cover by Helen of Hello Memo
AND I got fed… 
So, all in all a lovely day was had by all!

Cool video by the Salford Zine Library- WHY DON’T YOU MAKE A ZINE!

September 2, 2011
I *completely* forgot that a while ago, I’d sent a zine or two to Barbara Ryan, who organised a pop up zine library at Tatty Devine. Luckily, the lovely Lizzy Lee also has some work there and went to see it and take some pictures. Here is a link to her blog post: http://lizzyleeillustration.blogspot.com/2011/09/girls-zines-at-tatty-devine.html You should take a look through her other stuff on her blog too as her paintings are beautiful. A big thank you to Lizzy for mentioning me in her blog :)
The zines will be on display at the Women’s Library after tomorrow, so you can catch them there if you’d like. Here’s a link to their website: http://www.londonmet.ac.uk/thewomenslibrary/

One-eyed Cats, and other stories

This is the zine, finally! It’s an A6 zine with 20 digitally printed pages. I’m thinking about getting a batch really nicely printed for sale, what do you think?
