Etsy!

I just made myself a little Etsy shop! There's not much on there at the moment, just some things while I test the waters and see how it works. There are some editions of When The Grass Turns Blue, as well as a few smaller lino prints, and they're all originals, available unframed and can be shipped anywhere in the world. Go to etsy.com/shop/BeccaThorne to see the full thing, and maybe buy something if you see a print you like!

New Baby!

Not mine! My old school friends Sam and Rex had their first baby last month (much as I tried to convince Sam to give birth on my birthday, it actually happened two days later by caesarean section- babies are so stubborn). The new one's name is Esme Rose, and I made her and her exhausted parents this hare and moon card to say congratulations, and welcome to the world.

From Little Seeds

I keep meaning to put this up here and forgetting. My friend Helen creates wonderfully beautiful cushions, bags, stuffed birds, cards and all sorts of other delights, and she gave me this cushion for my birthday (along with some scrumptious chocolate brownies that we devoured very quickly). She uses any fabric she can get her hands on, from salvaged scraps and old swatch books to shiny, fresh new felt. Check out her work on her blog fromlittleseeds.blogspot.com





She also designed the card she gave me too. Look her up, she's marvelous!

Threadless T-Shirt Design

I've just been on threadless.com and voted for this T-shirt design by Silje Camilla, a lovely Norwegian lass who also went to college in Falmouth. She's very talented, and I absolutely love this design (I'd really love to see it in a fully illustrated children's book all about, say, people who live in a mitten...) I Particularly like how wolfy's tail swoops round all fat and luxurious and beautifully textured. To see what I'm talking about, and maybe vote if you like it too (hint hint), click on the image below:

Another birthday, another birdy birthday card! This one's for Anna, Rowan's sister.
