New mini print

This was an image I did in my sketch book a while ago... which then got turned into a painting. I've made it into a mini print which is available in the shop as of now. I've also got a couple of other new things in there.. check out my flickr page to see a range (link is in the side bar).
It's so hot right now and I have a million things I want to add to my blog, but none of which I can think of right now. Hold me to my word!! I have a new interactive project which I'll be experimenting here with soon that readers can get involved in. Stay tuned! Are you intrigued?

New bag & purse sets in the shop

Just a quick post today, about new bag & purse sets in the shop as of now. I have so many ideas in my head at the moment, but I think it's all stuck in a traffic jam and I just don't know where to start. I think I need to do some meditation to clear my head..

Also, I wanted to share that I saw four kookaburras on my morning walk today. I don't think I've seen so many together all at once.. I didn't know they hung out in gangs like that.

New items for tummyache

Just listed today. A "Daydream Dog" bag & purse (sold separately) and a mini art quilt featuring a bird speaking his mind. Mosey on over to the shop to check them out in more detail.

And, oh crikey, I've been tagged again! By Lauren. I have to write 6 weird things about me. I'm supposed to tag other people but I kind of feel like I'm being a pain so I wont this time. I like doing these things though, it gets me thinking and helps me procrastinate just that little bit more. Here goes:

1. I couldn't read a round clock until I was in grade six. Somehow I faked it through my entire time of being in primary school. It wasn't until I asked for a teacher to teach me that I learnt how.

2. Not only do I love dogs, but I love the smell of wet dogs.

3. I have strange dreams every night that I remember. For instance; last week I had a dream that I watched a cow give birth to a sleeping bag, which turned out to have a cat inside it. Jim hates hearing about my dreams. I remember once I was telling him about one, and he didn't hear this part: "I had a dream last night.." so I was telling him this crazy story, which he thought was true. I thought his reaction to my dream was quite over the top and enthusiastic. It didn't take long for us to figure out the misunderstanding! From then on, if it's not real, he doesn't wanna hear it!

4. I like raw potato, and pastry. I used to like raw pasta too but grew out of that. My brothers still eat it though.

5. I make nicknames up for many things. Neighbours (the tv show) is 'nackbours,' table tennis is 'pong,' the microwave is 'mickey wave,' and the salt has recently been dubbed "salty mcManis.' there are heaps of others that I can't think of right now, and some with swear words in them, so I wont type those here! They don't always have rhyme or reason to them, I just like being silly.

6. I used to have bright red dreadlocks with silver clamps in them.

The Sustainable Living Foundation Festival

You may like to check out The Sustainable Living Foundation's annual festival that I recently did some illustrations for. You'll find it at Federation Square in Melbourne from the 16-18th February 2007. Click on the link for all the details.

Take a look at the ad made by the talented folk at xyz studios from my illo's! It's so fun to see my characters come to life. They just get that extra bit of personality. Here's the link.

Tummyache is site of the week on Modish

Another stylish blog for indie shoppers has listed me as site of the week. Thankyou, Modish! It's so great there are blogs out there to help us find the stylish and unique. I feel like I keep repeating myself about that, but somehow it's so much more special buying from independent artists and designers, a.k.a. real people!

Also, to my list of Aussie blogs at the side there I am adding two mates... check out the cute, colourful and wonderful world of Binny, and the downright cool & dynamic pics from the brain of James Hart.

What I'm working on today:
An illustration for a magazine, and a mini quilt and bags for the shop. There's a new Chirpy bird bag in there now.. these bird bags are proving to be quite popular. Snap them up while they're available. I have now run out of fabric for this design so it will not continue for much longer!

A stupid riddle for you..

Something happens to my brain at 3am in the morning sometimes. I wake up, go into my studio and draw stupid pictures and laugh and giggle like a crazy woman.
