travel buddy birthday gift...

happy wednesday lovely people!

do you fancy having a look at what i've been up to?

this was an a4 commission i made for a lady who's travel buddy had a birthday coming up. she wanted to include all the places they had been on their (incredible sounding) trip, plus the two of them drinking tea at a cafe, as where else would you be happier?

for any questions about commissions please email me at

a big thank you & lots of nice photos of 2012...


i know.. i've been very quiet over the last few months, i was bombarded with lots of work, lots of seasonal stress, lots of people to see, and a few brand new exciting projects which i will tell you all about soon.

but first of all i would like to say thank you...

thank you to 2012 for treating me exceptionally well, my tiny start up business left his caterpillar stages and has now become a little butterfly which can finally buy me some food!

thank you to everyone who has made that possible, from the people who sent me a friendly email telling me they like my work, which helps me stay at my desk a little longer. the people who like, follow, share, and mention me to their friends, allowing me to reach out to more people than i did the day before. and especially to the lovely people that ordered commissions, i get to know each one when discussing exactly what they want, and i can happily say, i haven't had a grumpy one yet, and i am thankful for everyone of you!!

so goodbye 2012, you were bloody awesome...
