It's a discount code

To celebrate the fact that Spin Spin is now on Facebook (um, what decade am I in? Oh well, better late than never) I'm offering a wee short promotion - 15% off everything in my Etsy store (including new things, oh ah) for the next two days. A good time to stock up on Mother's Day gifts perhaps! Here are the details -

Promo code: APRIL11

I've also done some wee tweeking of this blog, including increasing the width, again (so I can put in better sized photos) and adding some info pages (including About, Links, Stockists and Press pages, which are still a bit basic but better than nothing, have been meaning to create them FOREVER). It meant I sat at my computer for hours, concentrating a lot and forgetting to eat lunch...and ignoring the fact that a major media "event" is about to take place.

Happy Easter

For me this Easter has been about sitting around listening to a lot of music that I love, drinking lots of coffee and a bit of beer, being reasonably productive and doing some work but also relaxing, making buns (3x batches, none of which I remembered to photograph) and wishing there was more time for holidaying at home. And it's nice and sunny at the moment, yay. Oh, and how lovely are these eggs that I received? Packaging heaven and they taste amazing (from Shocolate.)

Gloomy day Melbourne/Sarajevo

Today I'm in Melbourne and it's a gloomy day and a bit drizzly. One year ago I was in Sarajevo and it was about as grey, with moments of blue, but without the drizzle.

Today I'm trying to get through a bunch of emails and am procrastinating by looking at photos. One year ago I walked along the last remaining stip of the Sarajevo Tunnel, strolled past the Miljacka River and ate an ice cream at a cafe called 'Dallas'.

Looking forward to reading these soon. There are so many great magazines around, who said the printed word is dead?

The newly redesigned desktop, a local mag, is looking really great. And the last few covers have been amazing (this one by

Issue number 5 of Extra Curricular, from New Zealand, is out and I hear it has a nice little spread on tea towels (including the Tree Towel and some other lovelies, including one from Ink & Spindle.)

More loveliness from UPPERCASE, the new issue of Work/Life. According to UPPERCASE, "the primary goal of the Work/Life series is to promote the illustration talents profiled to potential clients" and this new issue features the work of 100 illustrators from around the world. And another great cover.

Happy days :)

The international language of hello

I feel like I've been semi-hibernating for a while now - thinking, planning, formulating. And doing a little bit of playing around for fun (above) and some printing. Below are the new colour combination for Raindrops - burnt pink and blue. Hopefully I'll have some panels ready soon.

PS. I definitely have a thing for raindrops. Here are some other posts where I've drawn them -
