You may think that I have a fancy creative colourful workplace but the truth is I work from the bed most of the time!
The truth is, I have an office with a fancy computer. The office is full of stock at the moment but I really enjoy the quiet time in there. HOWEVER! My dog Daisy follows me everywhere and always wants to play. I thought to myself, if I work in the bedroom maybe she’ll go to sleep – and that’s what happens. She sleeps, I work!
My typical night usually looks like this: Daisy sleeping peacefully on my side of the bed, while Iain falls asleep while watching TV. I have to lie at the end of the bed because my dog has taken my side, and I have heaps of books and notes lying around.
So yes! This is how I work most of the time. I will spend time in the office when I need to do serious illustrations, but if I am just working I am usually on the bed! I am very jealous of people having nice home offices. I am also jealous of the super smart ladies that have kids and also built a business empire because I can’t even handle my own dog!
I have lots of young girls admiring my unicorn print – Be Magical everyday. I know. Unicorn is magical. It’s sparkle. It’s special. But sometimes I just want to tell them you’re so much better than unicorn. Aim high and be yourself.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we have some incredible ideas for Mother’s Day gifts!
This year I have illustrated an Emu mum giving her little one a kiss for our Mother’s Day products theme. As mother’s day illustration usually full of love hearts and bears I decided to give a little bit more Aussie “accent” in my illustration.
This illustration is printed on card, cushion and mug. They are all available on my website and in store and the mug can be personalized as well.
Today is my last day to work the shop coz I am going to Hong Kong tomorrow! My brother is getting married so I will be there for him. I am off for two weeks and I can’t wait to show you around my home city!
Wow!! It’s been an exciting week here at our studio! I can never imagine so many people came along and participated in the voting for our tea towels!! Thank you VERY much!! You guys are amazing!
So we have the result here! You can see how close the votes are. Tea towels 3,4 and 7 received the same number of votes! The result was very different at its early stage but the Whale tea towel(Number 1) is a clear winner all the way!
These tea towels are all my babies. I couldn’t pick the best one without your help so thank you very much for your vote. I really appreciate it!
These 4 tea towels are our winners and we will be printing them soon! After printing we still need to cut and sew them so it will be still awhile until they are available.
Stay tuned! We will let you know as soon as they’re ready on our website!!
For those who have voted last week I will be mailing our calendars shortly. Please keep an eye on your letter box!
I am so excited about my new prints! The look fantastic!
Do you know all my illustrations have a story behind? If you go to my website, you can see on my product description I usually write a little quote or something that explain why I drew that illustration. It is because I want my prints and products are not just a decoration piece at your home. I want them to mean something to you.
This week I have two new prints on my website.
Sweet Dreams is my a beautiful sweet illustration featuring a bunny sleeping on the back of a deer. It is sweet. It feels safe. I looks like little miss bunny is having a sweet dream. No matter what your dream is. Stay positive. Work hard and make your dream comes true.
My second new print is Live Love Sparkle. The drawing was done last year for my best friend’s birthday present. It was printed on a mug without quote. When I was at the market few weeks ago a customer asked me if I can put some words on it. So I thought if I have to send this print to my friend what would I say to her? And Live Love Sparkle is exactly what I want to say. Fall in love. Have a laugh. Live your life full and don’t be afraid to sparkle.
