As a 'life' update, my boyfriend finally got a job nearby and now we live together, we our big silly chocolate labrador. And so face now has a constant smile smeared right across it (even when he leaves his towels all over the bathroom), but he's really encouraging me to produce more, and make 2012 a very prosperous year for my work, we hope!
Talking of work, I've been doing dribs and drabs over the last Autumn season. Moving my boyfriend in seems to have eaten most of my time, so much paperwork and bits to organise!
I took a commission for a Wedding, which came totally out of the blue. The client had my details for an exhibition which I unfortunately had to pull out of due to a death in the family, but she called me a few weeks later asking me to illustrate an 'Owl and the Pussycat' themed wedding invitation. I would have been reluctant if it hadnt been to do with a children's book!
It was to be used as a working postcard, I have taken the details off but you get the idea. They were having the wedding service in a Castle, and then a big festival style party the next day, with tipi's and fire pits, sounds wonderful!
I've also got some very exciting news coming up in the next few weeks (although I fear it'll roll into 2012 with Christmas just around the corner)... and its publishing related! Watch this space.
Thanks for checking back, come again soon! x
