Good Bye, Freak Mobile.

I'm in the middle of tweaking my website.... I got rid of my news section and have directing people here in stead. Saves me writing it all twice, but maybe this means I'm going to have to keep my blog very serious and strictly work related and stop blabbing about my life. I'm not very good at serious.

Anyway, I updated the portfolio section with some new images.

Here's the finished picture I did for someones baby, the mother was from Bilbao and the father from Wellington NZ. That dog took me fucking ages and sent me cross eyed, screw you Jeff Koons.

Here's another picture from a series I'm working on at the moment, I'd quite like these pajamas.

Audrey had the chicken pox this week, we spent most days drawing polka dot people and wishing we could play with the non polka dot people outside. I came to visit my parents in Manchester and bought a pair of granny shoes that make me feel like I'm walking on clouds. My dad sold his old car that looks like a hearse and totally ruined our street cred at high school, he was really sad. So am I in hindsight, she has been the thorn in our sides for 20 years. Long live the big, crazy freak mobile!!

Put a ring on it

A reworking of the drawing I did for the Puzzle EP last year. I like doing wedding invites, they're quite fun.

Partner In Crime

She's three and totally gets it. I love her little face.


Penny's downstairs playing the piano. It's a nice noise to work along side, for sure. I've been inside drawing for the past couple of days, it rained too much to bother going out and the kids are away at their grannies house.

I went to visit my sister in Aberystwyth. We played two penny push, got shit on by a starling and went to a dog grave yard in Portmeirion. It was nice to get out of London.

I stalked this Robin for about 10 minutes thinking it would finally give in and mistake my finger for a branch.

I'm working on some new pictures, I haven't done a sequence in so long!

Cordelia said to me the other day...

"There's going to be TWO STUFF that happens next week when I'm at Grannies and you're at home. The FIRST STUFF is that day about boyfriends.... and the SECOND STUFF is that day that you make pancakes."

She was right, though, I joyfully ignored and was ignored by the FIRST STUFF and decided to make THE SECOND STUFF in it's place so I got two pancake days. We used to con our mum into believing the Tuesday before the real life pancake day, was in fact pancake day.. so we got two...

Ding, ding. . . Round two.

Merry Christmas

I never got round to posting any of the cards I designed for the YCN... here's two.

I saw an old man today, walking about Stoke Newington wearing car washing gloves and a pair of pink, sequinned ladies slippers. I hope for his sake, that the snow doesn't stick about for very long.

9/10 Pain

I went to the Brighton tattoo convention last weekend to get my feet finished. I 'd say it hurt 10/10 but I've not given birth yet, so I'll give it a 9. Myles Karr is amazing and I cant thank him enough for putting up with drawing my lame, twee tattoos when he'd probably much rather be drawing awesome dinosaurs playing the accordian etc.

never again shall we

come dancing in the sea
we'll play guitar and video games...

Trampolining Dinner Table

When I was still training and life was all velvet leotards and glitter hairspray, I would dream for hours about knocking out the ceilings in my living room to make way for a trampoline. Anyway, last night, after 5 bottles of wine and a sing song round the old piano, I suggested to my housemates that getting a trampoline was the best thing we could possibly do with our living room.

They totally agreed.

I'm so excited I could cry.
