Badges for Stereohype

A set of 3 badges I designed this summer is now on sale from graphic art and fashion boutique : Stereohype.

£4 for all 3 of them or £1.50 for 1. What a bargain!!!

Other than that, I've been working on a new piece of pencil drawing. It is very loosely based on one phrase in The Gyres by Yeats which goes,

What matter?
Out of cavern comes a voice,
And all it knows is that one word, 'Rejoice!'

I'm starting to draw the frame now which is the final part of the illustration! This piece is my personal work but it's making me re-realise how much I love drawing. Oh I do love drawing. Oh I do I do!

it's nice that is so nice like that!

it's nice that wrote about me today thanks to lovely Alex!

it's nice that are at Portobello Dock as part of ‘The Dock’ exhibition this week. You can buy it's nice that 2nd publication there like I did yesterday! (Possibly the best £10 spent this year too!) You should definitely pay a visit there... the whole thing is amazing. It's massive and has so much space with lots of fantastic exhibits.

Yes yes I went to London yesterday and saw lots of inspiring stuff including the Dock exhibition. The day made me want to create more and more! I'm working frantically on a new pencil drawing piece on women of the woodland!!

I came across this ffffound user. She seems to be an illustrator originally from South Korea currently based in NY. I'm an illustrator originally from Japan currently based in the UK. Hmmmmmmm just switch and stitch here and there and me and her could be swapped around the globe! I hope she won't find out, or if she does, won't mind my little blurb hehe.
The photos she finds are amazing.... I can't stop looking at photo after photo of beautiful girls... Very inspiring indeed.

OUR EXHIBITION - The Menagerie Exhibition

I'm taking part in The Menagerie Exhibition at Ropetackle in Shoreham opening this Wednesday!
It's a group exhibition of

* Me (Illustrator / Pencil Drawings)
*Emily Maude (Illustrator / Screen Prints and Pen Drawings)
*Ellie Wood (Illustrator / Collage)
*Katie Munro (Illustrator / Pencil Drawings)
*Sarah Latham (Photographer)

The opening night is on the 9th of September (yes this Wednesday!!) from 7pm.
The exhibition is open until the beginning of October (yes for AN ENTIRE MONTH!!).

Ropetackle Centre / Little High Street, Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex, BN43 5EG Tel: 01273 464440
It's 10 mins walk from the station towards the seafront. I have never been to Shoreham before but now I have and it's actually a really nice place especially on a nice sunny day. You can see multi-coloured boat houses floating on the ocean with people really living in them! Amazing....I do worry if it's ok when it's storming though. But I guess there are people living there so it should be no problem? Hmmmmmm......

Ok I'm off to the cinema the second time today (I went to see a special screening of Pierre le fou this morning) to see Broken Embraces! Hoooooooo!!!
