I have a lot of things on the boil at the moment.
The above photo is the envelopes that the gift vouchers are going in for Hide & Seek gift bags, for the lucky first 25 people that arrive at the venue on the 22nd.
I am planning with no official opening date yet, (end of August definitely) at Sweets Workshop. Look out for the dates there. It will be all sea related pieces, which is pretty much all my recent work.
As a part of the Styl.us community, we are planned a publication of circular pieces, all the same size and specs. We are still discussing how to present it and where.
Sadly This Little Teapot has been pushed out until the start of 2011 for the exhibition. Leaves us all more time to do the work, although we haven't received the teapots yet. Soon, soon.
morning of sea monsters and surprises

I received the much anticipated Illustrators Australia Swatch Book today. Very nice. hopefully it brings some more interest to my door. Fingers crossed. I did spend the morning finishing off a couple more sea monster pieces this morning, I have delved back into small, sorry people pushing for BIG.
Plus I finally finished the two pieces I am going to send Catherine Campbell. We only said we would do one piece, but I found myself with two, just in case she prefers one over the other. I am pretty happy so far. I look forward to seeing how she interacts with them.
and to end, a bit of Catherine Campbell inspiration:
lots to do, but somehow... I do otherwise.

I have quite a few things going on at the moment, I have various pieces on my desk, resting against the wall, that I glance at out of the corner of my eye, or look at (shaking my head) wondering how to get to the next step.
And of course, instead of doing those, I find myself painting sea creatures.

Despite doing a massive week at the restaurant, tonight, I have the interest of drawing and painting flowing through my veins. I have had an idea of using Japanese Kokeshi or daruma as a base for a set of illustrations, and I think this is where it might start (generally). This is the start of a very exciting collaboration with Catherine Campbell.
I also sent out my very first newsletter this week, after threatening to do it for months.
