My first blog, wish me luck!
I guess I should start by introducing the namesakes of my blog, Belle and her little bunny Boo. Belle is loosely based on a much younger me and my all time favourite children's book character millymollymandy, who I think I looked alot like, except the stripey dresses!
Boo is an amalgamation of alot of bunnies out there. He is constantly changing colour and fluffiness, he is a new breed, a chamelibunny! They first arrived in my sketch book last Christmas in response to a greeting card brief, the cards are still pending but these two wont be held back. They are very excited to be appearing on BOTH sides of my new Tote bags, beautifully screen printed by the fabulous maryink.
Now a little about me Mandy, I thought I'd share with you a photo of my temporary studio space.
I always find it fascinating seeing peoples creative spaces, more so sometimes than seeing the creatives themselves. I say 'temporary'as we (we being me and my lovely boyfriend Russ) are in the process of having this...
turned into this...
ahem! or something similar ie cheaper, smaller & a lot less Elle decoration! So until we get our lovely new studio space, it's a case of Russ working in the Kitchen and me in the lounge, I expect alot of you are in similar situations.
