May Dew

The Dew Collector
When I saw the word "Early" for this weeks illustration Friday I kept thinking of this little drawing so here he is once again!
In Britain there is an old wives tale that says that the May dew has magical properties and that any one that washes their face in it will have a beautiful complexion all year round. So early in the morning on the 1st of May young girls would rush out into their gardens to collect the morning Dew. I think that they would have found this little fellow very helpful...

Sugar Nellie

I just thought I would share the news with you that I have been working on some stamp designs for Sugar Nellie.

I am really happy to be joining their team, I love the work of their other illustrators, some of whom I have known through the blogosphere for quite some time; Diane Duda, Mary Hall and Leanne Ellis are some of their artists whose work I admire very much.

I have created 6 stamp designs based on some of my colour pencil drawings, I cannot divulge which ones they are just yet.... but as soon as they are released I will let you know! :)

When I saw the word for this weeks Illustration Friday, I instantly thought about this drawing which has been hiding away in one of my sketchbooks for a long, long time... you don't get much more fearless than this little girl!!
