I am just about settled in my new home, for the next 2 and a half weeks I am house sitting 2 cats in Bristol. I am a few doors up from Suzie, round the corner from Tracy & Helena and 5 mins walk from the Bristol studio, it's all very convenient. I am currently working from an 11 year old boys desk, it's a new & interesting experience for me, this is my view.
I wonder if Simpsons characters are going to start making an appearance in my Belle & Boo illustrations, now that would be interesting!
Being in Bristol means I will be able to get my hands on a copy of a 'To Do' book as soon as that are finished, they are sssssoooooo nearly complete, today they are being bound & cut. The bad news is they will not be available to buy in our shops until mid September (sorry for the wait Annabel & thank you for my lovely postcard) To tease & tempt you meanwhile here is the front cover.
The book is called 'Bubbles Before Bed' it is a story book, colouring book & activity book all rolled into one as I said before it has been a years worth of work so I really hope everyone likes it!
If you would like to be contacted as soon as the book is available click here & we will add you to our growing list.
Another cute product available in September is new sticky tape, available in 2 colour ways which we like to call Paris Umbrella Sticky Tape (blue) & London Umbrella Sticky Tape (red) I was inspired whilst working on 'Poppy's Puddle' I just couldn't stop drawing kids in wellies and umbrellas.
Lastly Maggie did the draw on her blog & the winner is Jo who wrote this fab poem below, Jo if you haven't already can you please contact Maggie.
