Tis the season to be jolly!

Over at my place, I am full swing into the Christmas spirit! I may be a little keen, but with so many exciting projects on the horizon, I have no time to waste. These past few weeks have been spent getting my new line of greeting cards into motion. This line is about stepping back from all the big traditional things and taking notice of the details that make Christmas what it is. What would the big day be without a pudding? Or the simple yet delicious combination of mince pies and a cup of tea? I’m not quite finished yet, but I’d love to share with you what I’ve come up with so far.

Like all my cards, these will be printed onto a beautiful 100% recycled stock and will come with a recycled brown envelope to match. I'd love to know what you think! x

Project Card Stand

These past few days have been spent busily fine tuning my cluster of framed illustrations for SALA. A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to be squeezed last minute into a group show at Terrace Floors and Furnishings (Number 216 in the SALA book), so my name isnt actually in the publication, but im in the show none the less. 
I will have my line of greeting cards on display too, with the majority of these designs available as prints. So, in order to make this possible, I had to employ the skills of my trusty Dad this evening, we headed to the workshop to create a card display stand for the exhibition, yay! After a few solid hours of Dad translating my very non-structurally sound sketches into reality, we (mainly him..) had finished our creation and my oh my what a beautiful sight it was! Without tooting my own horn, isnt this just the cutest loveliest card stand you have ever seen!?

If you're diary is free on August 1st, it would be wonderful to see your smiling face at the exhibition opening! 51 Glen Osmond Road, Terrace Floors and Furnishings, Eastwood. SA. 5pm. x

Ok, my first blog post! My name is Pip and I’m an Illustrator from Adelaide. I wanted to start this blog so I could share my inspirations, exhibitions, ideas and journey with you. Here goes:

Last week I was so lucky to have won Irving Baby’s Window Art Competition sponsored by PoskArt Pens. My prize included a generous Irving Baby voucher, a massive pack of Poska Pens and the opportunity to reproduce my winning design onto their shop window! Photos of the process will be up on facebook over the next week or so, but for now I just couldn’t help to share one the many kitties that made up my design. Be sure to pop past the shop to take a look, I would love to know what you think!
