I was able to spend the whole of yesterday catching up on various ongoing projects, and managed to put together another illustration for my 'Beautiful Cities' series, this time of Innsbruck. I went there about 8 years ago I reckon, but I remember really clearly the beautiful toy-town rooftops and thick crunchy snow - definitely a winter wonderland!

I thought my preparation page for this illustration had a lovely quality as well, so have posted that too. Hope you like!

The Lace-Breasted Sparrow

I hope this little character might one day adorn some of my hand-crafted jewellery, but for now it's just going to have to perch on my blog.

Apologies for the lack of postings lately - nativity rehearsals and christmas card-making has slightly taken over my life, despite it still only being November. More illustration work to come soon though! xxx

Welcome Magnus!

It is the first day back at school for me, so rather than posting some new illustration work I'd like to be a little lazy and simply point you in the direction of Kate Slater's beautiful new children's book Magpie's Treasure featuring Magnus; the most charming feathered thief that I've ever met!

Congratulations Kate - I will see you soon to get my copy signed and I fully intend to test this wonderful book out on my own gaggle of 7 year olds very soon!
