Little Free Library

Hare, bear & pear repeat pattern Little Free Library

For the E17 Art Trail this year there will be a series of little libraries across Walthamstow for people to borrow books to read, their motto – Take a book, return a book.  I was lucky enough to be one of the artists to decorate one of these lovely little things.  Here are some pictures including a particularly uncomplimentary one of me writing its name on it (thanks BF!)  It will be in Cleveland Park Ave in time for the opening of the Art Trail on 31st May.

IF Mesmerizing

The topic for IF this week was “Mesmerizing”.  These people are mesmerised and it looks like they’re all mesmerised by you.  Run for your lives!  Or not, they look pretty friendly really.

This is my second week doing Illustration Friday!  I am so glad I stumbled on it, I was really excited about Friday rolling around.

badger card

Finally after some argument with my scanner (I won!) here’s the complete badger birthday card.  I made it for a lover of sleek home furnishings from Habitat, hence the weak pun!
