New Cards and Prints for Spring

3 Mar

I had a great day last weekend at Rhiwbina’s Handmade Market, organised excellently as ever by the wonderful April.  So many people and wonderful makers. Every time I do a market, I like to create something new to launch, and have now added several items to my online shop, which I’ve shared below.

Firstly, a card inspired by my Mum & Dad’s flock of fleecy Jacobs. This one is lino printed (using waterbased ink for a nice wooly texture) and then embellished with black brush pen and a greeny-gold crayon. I enjoyed drawing the ewe from life – in a blustery field whilst being hassled by some impatient chickens…

I have also produced a run of prints, which will be listed soon.

Next up, we have a rather intriguing situation – a greeting from one unicorn to another, through the medium of cake. I’m sure that, if unicorns existed, they would most certainly do this.

Here is the final card in the current collection – some mischievous carrots playing games underground. Vegetables do sometimes look like little people don’t they! I have plans for a larger piece including more raucous roots. I doodled this on the iPad using ProCreate.

Last but not least, after several requests, I have created a Welsh version of the popular Tits poster. Huge thanks to Ann Hemmings from the Welsh Gift Shop for sending me the translated names. Titws Tomos las is my favourite.

I’ll be posting up a fair bit this week, due to four illustration commissions / projects now being completed! More coming soon about them 🙂
