Hello Bonjour!

Anyone in Paris this coming October? (I wish I were!) Because if so, you should stop by FANZINES! at The Marguerite Duras Public Library.

I sent a couple zines to Paris to be a part of this zine exhibition - very exciting! The festival celebrates zines and self-published books, and is organized by Papier Gaché. The zines will be exhibited for three weeks in Paris and then will become part of the permanent collection of the Public Library for anyone to see!

The festival runs from October 17th through to November 4th (2012).

For further information on this excellent festival:

Zine in Progress

I've finished all the art for this zine! Now I need to get all the images scanned and cleaned in Photoshop, thrown into InDesign and make up the layout, and then get it printed and assembled!
Here's a preview of the cover:

Spoonflower Shop

I'm currently setting up a Spoonflower shop! :)
I've found I've begun to be very interested in surface design, specifically in textile illustration. This will be the grand experiment, seeing how my illustrations translate onto fabric.
I've ordered the test swatches, and if the colours and images turn out well, expect the shop to be up and fabrics for sale within a month!
Here's a preview:

Poison Berry Zine

Working on a zine right now. There's a lot of images and it's proving difficult to configure the layout for printing!

I'm currently working on two zines, a large painting, new stickers, tote bags, necklaces, pins, illustrated fabrics, and experimental shrink plastic items!

Today is work-on-the-giant-painting day haha. Here's where I am so far! This will take a while!
