down the rabbit hole.

some more of my illustrations from a while back.
these were inspired by the curiosity of alice falling down the rabbit hole.
a collection of kooky hand drawn objects.
i've always had a soft spot for alice in wonderland.
curiouser and curiouser...


rummaging through some of my old sketch books and found this illustration i did a while back.
thought it deserved to be revisited. the original was a fine liner drawing, but i added a little colour this time. it has really brightened this quirky illustration.

heart shaped.

heart shaped.
found out some love-ly news on the weekend, that a certain high school friend of mine
got engaged! isn't love sweet?

i'd rather be ridiculous.

thanks marilyn.

sugar skulls.

colour version.

black and white version.

skulls and crosses. a common theme i like in my jewellery collection.
slight obsession turned into a print. inspired by mexican sugar skulls.
i think i'm liking the colour one better.

the madame.

this is madame boutique. another new-ish collection by me, for kaisercraft.
traditionally, not my design style AT ALL, but i must say i really enjoyed this one.
i could almost say, it's starting to become one my favourite collections.. or maybe just one
i'm really proud of? the colours were so easy to work with, and im very pleased with the
finished product. it was inspired by vintage fabrics, dress-making patterns, femininity and 
traditional florals. say good evening to madame boutique... and on that note good night.

sneaky peek.

sneak peek.

here's a little sneaky peek at a project i have been working on all weekend.
to the left is a girl version, and the right is a boy version.

easy like sunday morning.

diana love.

a few of my favourite things.

easy like sunday morning. well, all weekend.
with very little on this weekend i was really able to stuck into some DESIGN!
here's two prints i managed to draw up today. sitting in my room on a sunday, i picked
out a few of my favourite things, and sketched them up into one collage type print. 
and i couldn't resist giving diana her very own print. she deserves it.

cock-a-doodle-doo! is another of my most recent collections for kaisercraft.
a cute and playful farm range, just for kids. all of the animals were hand drawn.


quite simply that.

it's beginning to look a lot like...

it's just around the corner, and being that time of year, i thought it would be
the perfect timing to introduce you all to merry medley.
this is my most recent christmas collection for kaisercraft, and i have to say my
most favourite christmas collection to date.
it's modern with a slight twist of vintage, and to be honest 
i'm REALLY looking forward to wrapping my presents in it.

love sweet love.

during the year i was surprised with the great news that
my close friend hayley was getting engaged to her long time boyfriend lee, YAY!
and i was lucky enough to get the chance to design her engagement invitations.
here's a little sneak peek of what they looked like.
so happy for these love-birds.

introducing 13th hour, another one of my collections for kaisercraft.
the overall theme is dark and moody, and i was inspired especially by time and numbers.
the name reflects a time that doesn't exist, a 13th hour, a mystery.


another day. another print.
a simple little kewpie doll design.

well it seems pretty fitting that on my thirteenth blog post, i am posting about one of my amazing friends.
because you see among many other things, the number thirteen, without a doubt
reminds me of her. thirteen is her number... and this is her print.
i designed this typography print, for one of my best friends, she is an extremely talented dancer,
and i wanted to give her something special to put up in her house.
i was so excited to give it to her, and equally excited when she told me she LOVED it, YAY!
and i just realised today is also the thirteenth of november...weird.

and the party continues.

here's another look at some of my little party animals.

it's party time.

introducing PARTY ANIMALS!
another one of my collections for kaisercraft.
this fun, bright and playful range was one of my favourite projects to work on. 
i really enjoyed creating all the party animal characters, and tried to make them as cute 
and adorable as possible. the collection is a combination of a quirky circus
and celebration, all wrapped up in cheerful colours and patterns.
