Wooohooh! Happy Halloween!


School Holiday Adventures

It’s been an eventful couple of weeks. I set myself some mad projects and seem to have miraculously come through it. I’ve been promising to decorate the middle child’s bedroom for quite a while as she chose the powdery purple colour on the walls when she was four. Never let a four year old choose their wall colour. So here it is, much more suited to a twelve year old.

And of course there’s been cake making. My first attempt at shaping a cake and covering it in fondant. And it tasted great too!

We’ve had tragedy as well with yet another fox attack. RIP Bonny, Cilla and Annie. Not sure if we can handle any more sadness, so we’re holding off on getting more chickens for a while. I really miss visiting them twice a day and hearing their happy clucking noises.


On a happier note. I went to this exhibition opening with my very talented friend, Jaquie Karney, who had painted my portrait. The exhibition is a portrait prize run by The Oak Hill Gallery in Mornington running at the same time as the Archibald Prize which has previously been held at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery.  But it looks like it’s in Ballarat  this year.


So it’s back to drawing now!

I should be getting on with work that people will be paying me for, but I just love doing these pop-ups. I love having to do them quickly and the effect that has. But most of all it’s so great to post them on 52 Week Illustration Challenge because the people involved in the project are so positive and generous with their feedback.

So here are this weeks.
