This is a mock up of all the extra items that go with my poetry booklet! Fold out poster, Bookmarks with stickers (which arrived today so I can start to put those together) and a fold out book. 

Can't believe how fast this year has gone!

All I have left to do now is revisit each piece, tweaking things I'm not happy with, designing a cover and end papers for my booklet/zine and getting everything printed and made for the show!! 

After working hard on pieces for aaaages I always feel a bit odd at this point where everything is starting to be finished, for some reason. 

Anyway, business cards are also starting to arrive so my next post will probably be to do with those!

I have enjoyed illustrating this poem. I think because I like the last word... 'polleny'.

More Updates!

The next poem I chose is about bees! There will be a single page with the poem on (below) and then I am going to make some bookmarks (second below) and some little bee stickers to stick on the bookmarks! (bottom)

I think this is my best idea yet, although maybe I just like stickers...?

Today I have been planning my next page and also planning in my head (and through the power of digital sketches) what business cards I might get printed...

(I'm not going to write that I just wanted to fill space...or am I?)

I just want to draw bees.

The Big Sleep

Here are both my entries for the Penguin/Puffin book cover competition. 
Going to attempt to work out how to arrange the PDF version to submit and get it sent before the deadline on the 9th!
