Children's book i never talk about is BLAH i hate the style i've drawn it in. And the way i've coloured it. Only my initial character designs are any good. I'm stressing over jobs and it makes me rush illustrations because i 'need them for my portfolio'. Then i hate them and throw them out and have wasted time on nothing.
My secret bandits series is looking good though. It's stretching my drawing abilities, what with mostly being full-figures and animals i've never drawn and teeny details to agonize over. I love it because it is secret so i feel less pressure and thus am just enjoying the process of drawing/painting.
I should probably start contacting galleries to pitch the proposal to, does anyone have any good suggestions? I would quite like to make the move to exhibiting in Australia, but have few contacts over there and know no galleries very well.
I was featured on Decor8.com recently (or my etsy store was) which was a fantastic surprise. I just love Holly's blog, and actually seeing my art on it was wonderful.

A bunch of these are off to a cute little botique in Wellington called Swonderful.
i also found the nicest cellophane bags at a packaging warehouse, so they are all nicely wrapped. Maybe clear plastic wrap isn't very exciting to some people but, gosh, i just love stationary related things! i had so much fun exploring the big warehouse. I wanted to buy so many things that i don't really have a use for.
Anyway, prints are A4 and A5, and the little girls on the far right are a note card set which should be added to etsy soon.
