Hallo and happy 2017 friends! I hope you rang in the new year in the style which suited you most. In my case, I was woken up by the fireworks at midnight but tis' the life of a sleep-short newish parent!
December markets were plentiful and wonderful. New friends were made, screen prints were sold, commissions were created. It is a bright and busy time of year! Thanks to all of you who made it out to one or more makers market. You are who keep us going. Also big thanks for continuing to support the Just a Card campaign. I've enjoyed being part of the team this year and we have big plans afoot.
Once the markets were finished I jumped on the train to Paris (as you do) with the lovely Marie from Gallinée to do some filmed drawing of the bacteria I created for their brilliant brand. And this past weekend - it aired! My (serious drawing) face and hand appeared on French morning program, Télématin. You can watch it here. I'm on from 13:11. We had a great time and everyone from the show was so nice to us. It was my first time EVER on TV and though I feel a lot of weird watching it back, I hope it will lead to big things.
I'm currently working on a new collection of prints and am looking forward to getting back into the ink at Sonsoles in a couple of weeks. There's a sale on in my shop (use the code WOOSALE)and in my Etsy shop as I have a bit of a clear out, readying for the new. Everything is 20% off.
2017 is looking good so far and I'm excited to be working with some new clients. Watch this space but also, do get in touch if there are things of an illustrative nature you'd like to discuss.
Speak soon chums!
