Pearly Queen Screenprint.

I'm happy to announce a new screenprint edition of my Pearly Queen design. This design started out as a small gocco printed card and I'm really pleased with how it has translated into the larger format. It is a limited edition of 50 and available in my shop. To help kick off the Festive season, all UK Special Delivery postage is FREE!

Pearly Queen is also being sold by East London Prints who are launching it at The East London Design Show. At the Truman Brewery, 5-8th December.

Judith Kerr

There was a very inspiring documentary on a couple of days ago about the life and work of the writer and illustrator Judith Kerr. These are frame grabs, showing details of beautiful early textile designs. Hitler, The Tiger and Me is on BBC iplayer.

I hope I'd be a bit like her if I get to 90.

Cards at Smug

Whilst I was working at Lupus Films last year, I often walked past the beautiful windows of Smug in Camden Passage Islington and made note to contact them about my cards. I'm very pleased that they are stocking my Valentine's card. Above you can get a sense of the beautifully arranged shop and their Guinea Pig logo and a selection of their Valentine's gift ideas, all available online including my card.

Cards at Frank

In their own words: "Frank is a place to find the best of British graphic arts, design and craft. Frank is a place for prints and for fabrics, for books or badges. For the collectible and the ephemeral, for things to see and for objects to own."

Frank in Whitstable had been on my radar as the perfect stockist for my cards for a while before I printed my first cards and got in touch. I'm grateful for their continued support over the years.

The top three images (courtesy of the Frank website) give you an idea of the beautiful shop front, our shared love of stripy bags and their varied products.
The final image captures the paraphernalia involved with sending off my card orders. The recent package to Frank included some new Valentine's cards.
