hello bear

i am completely inspired to draw a rumbling tumble of grizzly’s after seeing these ursine illustrations by uk illustrator, jamie mills.

sit. stay.

there are some amazing images by photographer & illustrator, anya mulder, on her blog and i have posted a couple of them before.  this is one of my current favourites.

paper proportions…

if you thought you had seen some inspiring paper sculptures/cut-outs/chopped-up-books…think again!  people too from russia have taken things to a whole new level.  a smaller scale, granted, but small enough to tickle your imagination!

these breath-taking photographs of new zealand were taken by andrew smith. i love the palettes he has used and the painterly quality of the images.  middle earth indeed!

a quirky, new abode for whimsy…

at last!  whimsy is now available in abode and quirky me at the old biscuit mill in cape town!

haas meet whimsy, whimsy meet haas

this past weekend saw me enjoying a whirlwind tour of cape town.  as usual it was a bit of a sprint from start to finish, ticking off a detailed ‘to do’ and ‘must see’ list.  but one of the highlights was meeting the owners of haas, Tess & Francois.  it is simply a fantastic store (soon to boast a wonderful coffee shop too!) in Bo Kaap that has a curiously beautiful range of art, jewellery and quirky interior decor pieces…and they have begun stocking whimsy prints, cards and wrapping paper!
