Sing along if you know it

… with boughs of holly, fa la la la laa, la laa laa laaaaa. Or if you live where I do, deck the verandah with bits of driftwood.

It's been a huge year, with not much time for drawing lines either on paper or in the water. But I've thoroughly enjoyed the times I've been able to get stuck into either; between work, children and life in general.

Whatever you're doing on Christmas day, I hope it makes you stoked.

Beyond the Veil

I was delighted to be asked to contribute to the third issue of Sea Stoke, an online magazine exploring broader surf culture. It’s the second time I’ve been involved, and as per last time I feel very humbled  (and maybe a little inadequate!) to be included among so much talent. The article I illustrated is about women’s surfing in Iran—absolutely fascinating subject matter, and very inspirational. It’s articles like this that make me so proud to be involved with Sea Stoke. Stoked!

Art show

My husband teaches at a local primary school, and like all teachers is often called upon to help out with extra-curricular events. Sometimes this means I end up helping too. This year the school is putting on a fundraising art show featuring a number of local and established artists, as well as (of course) the students. I drew this little logo for the show—a small contribution to a worthwhile event. If you're local, make sure you get to the opening night where you might just take home a masterpiece!

Four is the new three

One week down... and all is well. Hopefully a taste of things to come!

Sea Stoke

I recently realised I haven’t posted anything here since July last year. I’m not sure if anyone has even noticed, but regardless I thought it was high time to do something about it. Since my last post things have been extremely busy with work, family and as much surfing as I can fit in before our next baby arrives in 5 weeks (admittedly it’s getting pretty tricky by this point!).

There has been the occasional sketch though—this one was for online magazine Sea Stoke. The article I was asked to illustrate examines the plight of seahorses in Cambodia. I love surf publications that look a little deeper into what it means to be a surfer (or simply someone who loves the ocean). So I was honoured to be involved in this issue. Issue #3 is coming up soon, an illustration for which I’m currently working on—stay tuned to see the results... hopefully in less than a year :)
