Hello! I am sorry that I haven't posted over the last two weeks. Today I feel just like Michael in my latest Gardening Australia magazine illustration above: wanting to huddle from the cold. It is FREEZING in the studio today!
I took this photo above of my hallway about a week ago, on a particularly cold morning. I must admit that the bright colours warmed me up a little.

This was such a lovely project to be involved in: great fun to research (a trip to Heide, anyone?) and the perfect challenge for my illustration skills. And have I told you how delightful the women of Random House are to work with??!!! They are AMAZING.
Speaking of delightful people, Garth Oriander is a lovely fellow with whom I have been acquainted for many years. A talented commercial photographer, he has recently started a blog about a variety of creative types called What Makes Them Tick. It is thoroughly professional, beautifully photographed and REALLY worth taking a look at (and reading). I am rather chuffed to have been included. Thank you very much, Garth.
