There are no words for my relief and joy tonight! I have finished my book. For the last 6 weeks I have worked till 2am (on average ) to get it done and used every moment I reasonably could. I feel like I did 4 months work in one. It’s been crazy. And in the […]

2013 Calendar!!

Hooray here it is! I’m sooo happy with this – the paper is thick and creamy-white and the printing quality is beautiful.

What a pleasure was Thursday. The day began at Koko Black in the Royal Arcade in Melbourne. My fellow judges and I spread out the drawings and began the delightful process of selecting the twenty we loved the most in the adult division and the five most brilliant in the junior. It was hard!

Hot off the press…

It’s market day tomorrow and I have TWO NEW THINGS. Shiny and new. Spangly even! First of all, drumroll please, we have a clear favourite in the great print decision. There were many votes – at coffee shops, at the market, online, from the casting of bones and, yay-verily, a little  tea-leaf reading… and so […]

Hello everyone! Now I know you all have good taste and that you know what you like when you see it – so I need you to lend me your talents. I have been asked for more ‘boy prints’ more often than you could believe. So… here we go. Below are two drawings that I […]

How lovely lovely lovely is this? Koko Black now have made these characters of mine into the most gorgeous moulded chocolates. I LOVE them. And to show just how much I love them… I accidentally went through a couple of these when I was taking the photo. Snap, then before I knew it – another […]
