Here is a sneak preview of an owl print I have just created for a bag range at Disaster Designs. The bags are going to have lots of other cute features too but they haven’t even been sampled yet so I don’t know how the final bags will end up looking. The range will be out in September and so I will post some Photos then.
I stumbled across the Mail Me Art Project and thought it sounded brilliant! The British-based project was devised by Darren Di Lieto and over the course of a year artists took part in it by designing a piece of mail and posting it directly to him.
The artwork submitted for the project is going to be on display and for sale at London’s Red Gate Gallery from 3rd April to 9th April and a selected amount will be featured in a book. Luckily my little envelope is not only going to be in the exhibition and the book but is even featured on the front cover which is exciting!
My envelope was a good representation of my doodling style and I was pleased to see that it made it through the post and arrived at it’s destination safely! I love the whole experience of sending and receiving special letters and so I wanted my mail to be a unique gift that had been personally hand-made. Like most of my work, the doodle pattern on my envelope was an unplanned, eclectic compilation of elements, aimed at engaging your attention so that you want to explore it more.

I collect designer vinyl toys and was incredibly excited when I found these ‘Do it Yourself’ Munnys. Here is the first one that I did – it was really fun but quite scary as if you make a mistake you can’t rub it out!
