In the hot summertime I enjoy nothing more than sitting indoors and watching other people playing sport on the telly, here are some patterns from the archives from an olympic themed project.

This repeat pattern in for the June page of my 2019 calendar of places and patterns. Inspired by the wonderful summer fruits in our garden right now and also Peter Gabriel:

Show me round your fruit cage

Cause I will be your honey bee

Open up your fruit cage

Where the fruit is as sweet as can be

I wanna be your sledgehammer

Why don't you call my name?

Wishing you prosperity and happiness in the year of the piggy! Here's a quick pattern I drew in ink of some very clean pigs, where's a big puddle of mud when you need it?

Here's the winter sun in my new decorated work room, with lovely things from Society6: the Kaleidescope curtains, Kaleidescope side table and Half Moons rug, they often have discounts and special offers so sign up for the Society6 mailing list and keep an eye out. Plus I've got a pot of really pretty tulip bulbs that my mum found lying around, and Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls, such cool book about amazing ladies with really nice illustrations.

I took part in the Make It In Design Summer School back in July. It's such a fun community of surface designers with really cool briefs to work on and I came up with loads of new designs and more inspiration than I know what to do with. This brief was called Jungle Luxe, I was looking at old Victorian glasshouses and vintage tropical plant illustrations from intrepid explorers. I had some fun drawing the whole thing in Photoshop and loved the colour palatte that came with the brief. This pattern was chosen as a winner for the Fashion Formula prize, very excited!

Check out all these cool things from my Society6 shop. There are so many good products on there and they often have sales on so look out for that so you never need to have boring stuff in your life.

Here is a whole suite of wedding stationary that I designed this summer. It was such a pleasure to work on, with lovely personal inspiration from the bride and groom with their British and Sri Lankan heritage and a love of vintage decor. Plus I got special info from their florist so I could include all the wedding flowers in the floral pattern! The brides family run the fantastic Loddon Brewery near Reading, so instead of table numbers they had different Loddon beer names for each table, a really nice touch. You can find more info on personal and bespoke wedding stationary designs right here!
