Happy New Year everyone, my apologies that I haven’t posted any new illustrations of late - there is quite a backlog but they are all part of a short picture story. I have to resist posting them so I can post them all together when they’re done - I can’t wait! I have 3 of 8 images left to do.
In the absence of that I have some recommendations!
Instagram is brimming with wonderful illustrators who post regularly, here is a list of some of those that have posted my favourite works of 2013 - I highly recommend you take a look at their feeds if you want a regular dose of illustration goodness.

Just a quick note to say: This coming Sunday (8th Dec), my sister will be at the Harringay Christmas Market in North London selling her exceptionally cute handmade Christmas decorations (instagram pics here) + other crafty things. Suzy will also be selling my brand new greetings cards and copies of my illustrated book Asleep As The Breeze
If you can’t make it I have also added a limited number of greetings cards to my Etsy Shop here.
