a small comfort

I have had to remind myself of this constantly today.

What's more, there's rather a large type-free gap in my portfolio, so as well as trying to cheer up soggy pedestrians with my cheery window "ads", I've been delving into a little bit of hand drawn text.  What do you think?

I have also been excitedly penning vintage shoes in my sketchbook ready for our collaboration with Poot.  I don't know if it's the cold weather, or the emergence of Christmas lights, or the fact that the shop on the way into Bradford on Avon has been counting down to Christmas for well over a couple of months now, but all I want to draw is Christmassy things!  I will share them with you very soon.

But for now I am off to Bath for a Thai feast!

Note: I would like to take this opportunity to express my upmost affection to the kind of people who take time out of their day to offer Photoshop advice to frustrated souls like myself.  I no longer have ugly white lines around my images.  Thanks Yahoo.


  1. i LOVE your hand drawn type stuff you've been doing recently, they styles go really well with your images xx

  2. Thanks Ella, that's really kind - just what I wanted to hear :) XXX

  3. Well, your work in general is really great!
    we WANT these shoes just as they are!

    By the way, nice to see a talented and nice artist like you come and have a look at Benito&co,'s work! ;-)

  4. Thank you, that's lovely of you to say! I seem to have lost the link to your blog though!! Can you pass it on?

    I'm glad you like the shoes, I wish I'd drawn them from my own collection! :D

    Love and light xxx

  5. Don't worry, found you! I followed the wrong link!
