Trip back to the UK

So last week i went back to the UK for a wedding and visit my family

I made a sketchbook to take with me:


I made it out of a random selection of papers, bound with a couple of heavy duty staples, and a nice charcoal grey cover.

I embossed the front with a little message:

I was quite excited, i'd never flown on my own before. And of course, by excited i mean worried everything would go wrong and fall apart!







So i did quite a bit of sketching mostly when i was traveling. Which i did a lot of. reminded me of how much i hate trains. so glad there isn't any here.

All items are limited edition, and will only be available until November-ish when i switch the stock around for some more festive items! (and or they sell out… which ever happens first… i think we know which one will happen first…)

We’ve got a tote bag, and a lorra greetings cards for the moment with some tea-towels and fabric goodies to come.

Ratcliffe

This is the pattern that greets me when i enter my building. 
I’ve seen this on a few houses here in the Isle of Man, but i don’t know if it is specifically Manx. If you’ve seen it before, let me know :)

I made in the same way as my ‘morocco’ pattern

A new collaboration - Bourne Creative


Playing about with making drawings translate to screen print, for tote bags hence the canvas texture.

Two colours, 
1 Beige/sand half-toning
2. Black line-work

The half-toning is two different patterns, Dots for the face, lines for the clothing.
