There are so many talented illustrators in the book. Yay :-)

WiStOw Gallery

I don't do many logos, most of what I do is aimed at the children's market.
However when the lovely Kate at Wistow Gallery in Leicestershire gave me such an exciting brief to do her logo - I couldnt refuse.
Kates brief was so inspiring and clear, I can't take all the credit for the ideas.
Anyway, having visited the gallery, I am blown away. It has lovely artwork ,jewellery and crafts, ALL from local artists. I am so chuffed I was involved in this project. And even more pleased to see the logo on bags, leaflets, and even pencils!!
So if you are in the area, its well worth a visit. I spent a fortune in there!

Hootiful Owls!

Last year the lovely people at Make Believe Ideas asked if I could produce a whole load of owl characters for them.
I love working on owls and birds anyway, so this was a lovely project for me.
The result is this lovely owl stationery box.
It includes a notepad, stickers (love these!), a stamper, postcards etc. A perfect gift!!
I was lucky enough to receive some samples in the post.
As soon as I know where these can be purchased, I will update this.
Anyway, I think they have done a 'Hootiful' job!!
