Snow, hello.

Experienced my first sight, taste and feel of falling snow yesterday. Like nothing else, mother nature just has a way of leaving me completely awestruck, silent and content. She did it again yesterday. I was completely hyptonized by those small white fairies.

In the way they move, float and flit. The weightless hover. An airy drift, not around for too long, just long enough to catch a glimpse and the she's gone, right past you on her way somewhere else. Turning everything in her sight into frosted cookies.

Makes minus degrees kind of bearable.

seventy







Doing a little research on the seventies for a current project. Always been one of my favourite eras, maybe its the hippy that lives in me but i think we were meant to be.

Libra ladies


Libra. The name will always remind me of feminine hygiene product adverts from the early 90's (May only apply to australians) but all that aside... as a star sign you little ladies are all about balance and justice and look cute in red xxx

thanks to the lovely libran who supplied some pretty trinkets for this illustration xxx

Happy BD Libra's!

Belleville






I'm a gypsy no more. I now have my very own room to call home in Paris & this makes me happy. Happy in the colour yellow sort of way.

My new home is in my favourite area, Belleville. Quirky, eclectic, arty and a little rough around the edges.... we are a perfect match.

The energy is buzzing, walls are filled with street art, roads are rich with history & colour and I have my own pet octopus right outside my building.

Mary had a little one


For you foodies out there, this is the current illustration that I drew for Sumputous magazine. The story is actually about eating lamb... but Im hoping they would never ever eat this lamb because he is way to cute.

Tina


She reminds me of orange curtains and green carpet but this image always takes me to a happy place. JH Lynch's - Tina 1961

je ne sais quoi





I have been researching french women for a new job. I have found the perfect spot is my corner cafe, lots of french ladies there and also a couple of very cute french boys who make my coffee every morning. Bonus.

The women have a self confidence in the way they carry themselves and communicate, a sexual liberation that oozes from their pores and the way they dress, never too tight or too revealing... oh and i can't forget the way they knot their scarves... amazing.
