Cookin’ Up A Storm

Kitchen Print

Here’s a design I’ve spent a lot of time on recently… for me! This is going into my new kitchen and features some of my favourite things, including my coffee pot, cowboy boot glass… and gin. Will be getting this printed up soon, it’s going to be about 150 x 100cm, can’t wait to see what it looks like supersize!

Prints and Peapods

OMG Peas copy

Hot!

I have some new prints up for grabs on my Etsy shop - including a funny little doodle of some surprised looking peas. Hoping to make a sale or two, and happy to be expanding the number of products I have in advance of taking part in some art shows this summer. I’m also making time to create other things and have been doing some screenprinting – and even picked up some paintbrushes recently. Hopefully I’ll have some different items up for grabs in the coming months!

 

 

Team Zine

 My copy of Poor Lass Zine arrived this morning – I am so pleased with how it turned out, and got a lovely thank you note from Em and Seleena, the awesome ladies who produce the zine. Now to get started on a new project or two, I feel like I haven’t been putting enough time aside lately to draw and produce things and enjoy myself! Getting the pens and paint out today.

Poor Lass Zine Has Arrived!Poor Lass Zine Thank You

Zine Time!

So delighted to have been able to design the front cover of the next issue of Poor Lass Zine - made by lovely ladies Em and Seleena about what it means to be working class. This issue’s theme is ‘family’, and I wanted to include things that I associate with my own childhood and relatives – my dad’s glasses, my niece’s babygrow, washing on the line and lugging the shopping home with my mum on the bus.

Happily it’s getting a good reception so far, and I can’t wait to see the rest of the issue.

Hope you lot like it too. x

Poor Lass Zine Cover

Under the Sea

It’s been a little while since I last posted anything, mainly as I’ve been busy with my new flat and my day job! But I’m happy to be finding at least a little bit of time to focus on some drawing – this weekend has been very productive and I’ve finally finished a design I’ve been working on for a few months.

Here you can see a few draft ideas, and the finished version, It’ll be on my Etsy shop pretty soon, I’m looking forward to seeing it in print! Hope you like it. xx

Society 6

 

After a good friend told me about society6, I had a good think about whether or not I wanted to use this kind of site to sell and promote my work. After seeing the designs of some other well established (and very successful) illustrators on there, this week I decided that I would give it a shot after all.

As well as prints, some of my designs can now be found on cards and even phone covers. It’s quite exciting to see something that’s so familiar to me in a different format, and I have my fingers crossed that these new products prove popular.

Have a look at my fledgling society6  profile here.

Boda Open Show

Window 3

Well yesterday was  the opening night of Boda’s  Open Show – here’s some snaps of my dutiful mates coming out to see my print in situ :-)

The bar itself has been refurbished and looks really lovely, and the selection of work on display was really impressive. I’m so pleased to have been selected to take part, and even if I don’t make a sale, hopefully my work will become that little bit more recognisable to the local folks.  I also have my work featured in an exhibition in Glasgow for two weeks, and will be posting a few (terrible) photos of that in a little while.

Boda’s Birthday

Boda Open Show

 

So in my last post I mentioned that I would be taking part in a special event very soon – and here it is! The lovely Boda Bar (in Leith, Edinburgh) is celebrating its 9th birthday this month and will be having an open show, with designs by local artists/ illustrators on show and for sale.

I’ll be selling a framed copy of my limited edition Skulls print…

Skulls

… and I’m looking forward to seeing what other designs will be on offer.

There will be an opening party from 7pm on Sunday 15 September – if you’re in the area you should drop by and take a look.

Business-ness

oohkatieq business card

 

This week I finally had my new business cards printed – and I’m so pleased with them! I’ve had the design ready and waiting for a few months but had been putting off printing them,  as I still have a few of my old ones. But now I have a special event coming up (which I’ll post about shortly) and wanted to up my game in terms of promoting my work.

I’ll be giving these out here and there over the next short while, you might spot them in several shops and cafes in Edinburgh already.
