Etsy update

What a busy month since I last posted here!  Exhibitions, artist markets... lots of opportunities, lovely people and wonderful conversations... it's great to be finishing the year with a feeling of being productive in my creative work, and my head already filling with ideas for next year. 

I now have prints of my latest gouache illustrations available in my etsy shop.  I'm experimenting with a new paper for some of my prints... it's a heavier weight 100% cotton fibre paper, and it's perfect for these illustrations - the prints look just like the originals - so happy with them!  I'm also experimenting with trimming these ones to fit inside a ready made 8x10 frame, and had a little photo shoot this morning - so if you check out the etsy listings you can see what they look like in frames.

Also, I've been making coptic bound and hand-painted books - lots of them - for artist markets and custom orders.  I've had some enquiries about whether they will be available online.  Postage is expensive on these non-flat items, particularly when sending them overseas, as Australia Post has recently taken away the under 250g option for parcels.  I'm thinking about how to give my customers best value for money, but in the meantime I will post about available books on my facebook page.

I couldn't resist keeping the large Wild Things journal, though... a gift to myself for 2013, and it is already home to a collection of words and ideas and sketches... will share the results of those soon :)

Superb prints!! Sky blue color and the light gray colored border of frame are just amazing. Loved first and third one the most.
