Kicking off the new year with some creative inspiration:

  • Mr. Turner an award winning film about the life and career of one of Britain's best-loved painters, J.M.W. Turner. Written and directed by Mike Leigh. Leigh has described Turner as "a great artist: a radical, revolutionary painter. I felt there was scope for a film examining the tension between this very mortal, flawed individual, and the epic work, the spiritual way he had of distilling the world."

  • Developing Your Signature Style a workshop from Make it in Design

  • Filling my sketchbook with collages as a kind of visual exploration. 

  • Make Art That Sells: Assignment Bootcamp with illustration agent Lilla Rogers.

  • Poking around this website, refreshing my Portfolio and Shop + Licensing page. Ops! That reminds me that it's time to add some new designs to my shop at Redbubble! I love how duvet covers have been added as a product, it's so much fun to design for home decor! 

  • Collage. A workshop with artist Birgitta Kahri.

  • Taking a look at my shop at Creative Market. Thinking of how I can develop it in 2015, what products to focus on and rebranding it.
