Tees and Sweaters

On another note, the lovely clothing label PaperCup has released a Tshirt and a sweatshirt with one of my drawings on it. They came out amazing, and are lovely quality and fit. I've been wearing mine solidly the last few days and the sweater especially is going to become a wardrobe favourite.

If you live in Wellington you can purchase them at Swonderful, but I beleive they are also doing special orders for those who aren't local.


At the sacrifice of my neck and wrist, I have finished two new cameo brooches and a little necklace. I need to take a serious break from these now or I don't think I'll be able to recover. Or i need to finda more ergonomic way to work on them.. I really need to get a photo of me painting one, i'm sure i look very funny all hunched over with my face an inch from the wood.

I have been so tired lately, and all i want to do is paint, but after work all i can do is read or go straight to bed. So I've hardly been painting at all.. I don't know if it's my chronic fatigue getting bad again, or if my iron levels are down, or just being a bit depressed from working an exhausting day job and struggling with money so much. I really don't want to turn back into the sleepy boring mess i was a year or two ago.

I have something fun/cool coming up in July, so i have something good to look forward to. I will just focus on that and try not to fall into a rut.

Etsy Update

So many new things. Cards and postcards and i finally have one of my magical brooches for sale. xx

Back from Easter

Wetas are so great. Expect paintings of them in the near future. Heres a photo of me holding one. Also saw tuataras which were awesome but hate flash photos so i only have blurry nighttime half-tail shots. There were little blue penguins, too, but I've seen so many of them i wasn't so exited.
