esther marfo

Here's a drawing of the talented lady who makes a lot of my dresses, Esther Marfo.

new handbag i just had to show you

I'm not really a shoes & handbags kind of gal, but Yasmin from the bead shop just set me up with this corker. I love it so much, it looks like some sort of strange carnival teapot. It's sitting by my desk and I keep reaching over affectionately to pat its belly.



And here's a little Teddy boy #ShapeChallenge drawing for @StudioTeaBreak. :)

raven girl, seagull lady

Happy birthday, Audrey Niffenegger! Audrey taught me how to do etching in her studio in Chicago last summer and I don't have etching facilities here so I tried to fake something that sort of looks like an etching with aquatint.

fashion show with esther marfo

Here are some photos of my very brief modeling career! :D



On Saturday, a few friends and I went along to the fashion show of my amazing tailor Esther Marfo. She makes lots of the dresses I wear to festivals and things, and she's amazing. Here are all her models lined up together.



And Esther herself! If I just draw a picture of the outfit I'm thinking of, she's able to make it, without a pattern or anything.


Photo from Esther Blessed Facebook page

I used to pop in to see Esther all the time at her shop on the high street, but she's since closed shop and started working from home. If you want to commission some work from Esther, you can find her on her Facebook page as Esther Blessed.

New Irish Laureate na nOg PJ Lynch is going to be recording a series of interviews with different illustrators, and I was lucky enough to be his first person! Here's a chat we had at Listowel Writers' Week about drawing, influences, a peek at a stage event with Philip Reeve and a tutorial, how to draw one of the pugs from Pugs of the Frozen North. Hope you enjoy it! :)
