Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone! Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog this year. Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and Holiday break!
Thought Id leave you with this greeting inspired by all of the wooden Nutcracker toys I have seen in the shops lately.
See you in the New Year!

Catch Up

So much to catch up on in the lead up to Christmas!! Hardly know where to start!

After our tour of the south finished at the beginning of December we were home for a week before flying away back to Hong Kong to visit our friends from Holly Brown and plan more exciting projects with them. It was lovely to see Hong Kong at christmas time - I didn't take enough photos to do it justice unfortunately. The temperature was very pleasant too as it is now considered winter time in Hong Kong - most days a average of 17-23 degrees, 40-60% humidity. After a very quick week there we are now back in NZ and busily trying to catch up before Christmas arrives and sweltering in the mugginess of summer. :)

In the meantime I have been working on various projects - one of which I am creating birthday illustrations for. I also have a few exhibitions planned for 2011 so that will keep me busy over the holiday period.

Also happy to announce that one of my Holly Brown illustrations was selected as Runner Up in the latest judging for issue 21 of Creative Quarterly magazine. (you can see it in their online gallery here - scroll down to my name to view). I was stoked as the judging is of a very high standard and there are so many awesome illustrations submitted.
