Even more exciting news! My illustration is the cover art for the new issue of bespoke zine. It's ready to pre order now from bespokezine.com so make sure you get your copy! I am loving seeing my illustration used as banners and advertising bespoke. It is such a sweet little zine filled with lots of interesting articles on art and craft, photography and all things vintage. To be the cover artist for this issue is just so amazing and such great exposure for me. I am feeling very lucky!

So I just submitted this illustrated recipe to They Draw & Cook. I hope it gets put up, it's my own special recipe I made up for BBQs. Being a vegetarian I get sick of eating salads when everyone else eats sausages and burgers around me. The Fried Hula has become a hit with vegetarians and meat eaters!

More exciting news! I submitted some works into Curvy and Bat Dog has been successful and will be printed in Curvy 2012! I am so excited I absolutely love Curvy and to have my illustration published in their amazing book is such an honour! Apparently 1108 female artists submitted their work from 40 countries around the world. I am not sure how many were selected but I was one of them! Some of my favourite female illustrators have been in this book so I am just so excited to be a part of it. If you don't know what Curvy is check out http://curvy-world.com/

So I was asked to be part of Spoonful Zine issue 6 and the brief was to create an illustration of a hummingbird. Not knowing all that much about humming birds I did a little research and found a really funny myth about their migration patterns. For some reason people had trouble believing these tiny birds could migrate unassisted and therefore came up with the theory that they hitchhiked a ride on the backs of geese.

Recently I went to a craft market in Sydney and I noticed that almost every stall was selling items that had either owls, foxes, rabbits or deers/ stags on them. It made me laugh, but with the intensions of selling my work at markets soon I thought I should get in on the woodland creature action as they were selling like hot cakes! So I am selling out in my own quirky way I guess. Ah well...

So a few years back while I was in London I went for a walk in Hyde Park. For some strange reason a gang of squirrels and pigeons chased me out of the park. Ever since then I have wanted to illustrate this image and I have finally given myself to do this. I hope you enjoy it!

So after a holiday in fiji and coming down with a horrid case of swine flu, I am up and drawing again! Currently I am working on another album cover but i also just finished making up some wedding invited today that I am very happy with. I cant wait to see them printed, here is just a little sample of the front of the invite and the RSVP card. Its for a laid back backyard wedding where they will be serving pizza and gelato for the guests meal. Hope you like it!
