The book is all finished HURRAH! and I'm really pleased with it, still can't show you anything until it's published in July but really looking forward to sharing it as soon as I can.
Last weekend's trip with Zef was amazing, really inspiring, we went to the Columbia Rd Flower Market where I bought a giant bunch of 4ft pussy willow before browsing the galleries and shops and going on to the BFI to watch "Two for the Road with Audrey Hepburn". I would not recommend attending the cinema with 4ft stems, but I absolutely couldn't resist and the lovely staff helped me to find a good hiding place for them during the ace film.
I've been working on a range of studies of the pussy willow, they are SO SO beautiful and are pride of place in the kitchen. I was convinced the our naughty cats would eat all the fluffy balls leaving me with bare branches but so far so good (crosses fingers and touches wood.)
Yesterday I spent the day drawing Easter Eggs for Delicious Magazine and I now have the most terrible craving EVER for posh chocolate. So far I have not succombed but I'm sure that the longer I leave it the more I will eventually have to eat. We're going to Rococo chocolates (they have the most amazing packaging) for a Truffle Making Masterclass in March so I am saving for a shopping spree whilst I'm there!
My sketchbook is still filling up with beautiful ladies as above, as I'm currently working on a new range of fashion/ beauty inspired illustrations. To this end Steve and I are visiting "Drawing Fashion" at The Design Museum on Sunday before the matinee of The Lion King and then dinner at Imli WOWEEE dreamy Sunday eh! but I have so much work that needs doing between now and then... see you on the other side...xx
