NEW STUDIO: I thought it was time that I gave you a glimpse of the new place and my gorgeous new studio seemed the obvious place to start. I will show you some of the rest of the house later on but we still have not really unpacked and set up properly.

I can't wait to get some things up on the wall and to get my inspiration pin board up and going. I still have to bring my big art drawers over and and a few other things, so no doubt I will post some pictures of my progress.

I just love this drawing table! My gorgeous husband gave it to me for my birthday and I have been wanting to give a permanent home where I can leave it set up all of the time. It's just wonderful to have the space to finally do that.


And on the drawing board today is an exciting new project I have just started this week. I am so thrilled to have been approached by a new book publisher to illustrate the first of what we hope will become a new series. I obviously can't say to much, but it's my first full colour book and I am so excited! As usual it's a pretty tight deadline so I am still pretty flat out, but am just loving it! Sorry no pictures, but it's due out early next year, so I will of course do a feature on it then! YAY!

Have a wonderful weekend and I am off to check my files to see if I can pull something together for the Illustration Friday topic! It's such a great theme this time (ZOO) but I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day to keep up with it!

Oooh, I love the look of your new work space. What a great view and I love how open it looks. That must feel so inspiring.

Congratulations on the new project. That sounds so exciting and I can't wait to see it when it comes out.
