Happy Halloween!

Ta-dah! My finished pumpkin as promised and a picture of my very put-together-last-minute halloween costume that I wore to the Monsterpalooza after-show party. My costume was pretty lame compared to some of the amazing efforts made by the make-up and prosthetics folk who work in the industry, but it was fun to dress up all the same! Happy trick or treating everyone!

Halloween LA style!

Halloween is such a big holiday here in the US. When I left the UK, the shelves where becoming packed with Christmas things - but not here! So exciting to see people decorating their yards and choosing prime pumpkins for carving! I have this beast to get going on!...Got an evening of sketching some designs tonight. Will be sure to post the after shot when it's done!

So in the spirit of Halloween, I did a doodle of course! Will be Twitter pic until the end of the month.

New chapter, new home.

Quite a lot has happened over the last few weeks, which has resulted in me being a little quiet on the old blog front. I left my job and I left London to embark on a new adventure, to try new things and make new art. I packed my computer and my trusty screen printing screen and headed out to live with some family in Los Angeles. I'm living in an environment where you can't not feel creative and get creative and learn more about being creative! We are surrounded by people whom we can learn a great deal from and I hope to tell you all about it on here as I go along! 

Before Gaz and I moved here, we were very lucky to stay with our friends up in Liverpool for a few weeks to catch up and say bye to family etc. I meant to blog about Amy and Dan's house while I was there but Frankfurt book fair got in the way! According to Dan, Amy has a borderline unhealthy obsession for anything with hearts on and very cute vintage looking items. I say there is no such thing! Their house is lovely and on it's way to becoming extremely stylish. I snapped some picks and did some doodles of a few items dotted around the house, for inspiration.
