Just a note to say that I've listed some A4 prints of my leaf paintings in my Felt shop...you can find them here. And it's appropriate that this Zealandia statue is in Palmerston, Otago, because I'm heading down to the South Island soon to play with The Bitter Years on this tour! If you'd like to see some photos from the road you can follow along on Instagram @thebitteryears. Here's hoping we'll get a chance to hunt for some op shop treasures!
I'm planning a Felt and Etsy shop update but our band The Bitter Years is playing in the Coromandel tomorrow night, at the Purangi Winery near Whitianga. So I'll pop some new prints in my shops when I'm back in town...stay tuned.
Oh and I am having lots of fun with my new blackboard and blackboard marker!
I had a lovely Friday night at home and worked on this little guy. He's probably going to be on the cover of my zine but I thought I might get him printed as an A4 print or postcard too. Tiny t-rex? Giant teacup? Who's to say?
Happy new year to you! I was saying to Mr. Millicent Crow this morning that I had barely stopped accidentally writing 2012 when I was writing the date, and now it's 2014. Here's a little montage of some of the things I made last year...a lot of bunting, a lot of brooches and badges, and some new screenprinted patterns. I also did Antarctic drawings aplenty for Mr. Millicent Crow's show The Explorers' Club, did some good markets and did a screenprinting collaboration for some wedding outfits that are being worn tomorrow! 2014 has been busy so far with our new band The Bitter Years, and you can see what we've been up to on Instagram: @thebitteryears and Facebook: www.facebook.com/thebitteryears. I was lucky enough to find the most perfect chalkboard in an op shop in town today (we lugged it home on the bus on one of the hottest days of the year) so I'll show you some of the crafty things I get up to with that soon I hope! And one day I will finally get my zine that I'm working on finished. Happy 2014.
