Just thought I'd post a picture of my desk from yesterday - I was putting together some collage christmas characters......

Here are the last card designs I will be doing for the winter fair this year - it's on Saturday ! For anyone who has missed all the plugs - we will be in the marquee outside Parkside Pool in Cambridge from 10 am to 4pm. Fingers crossed it's a nice day.
Those with eagle-eyes may notice that this polar bear closely resembles the sloth bear playing with a coconut I drew at Whipsnade Zoo earlier in the year (see September)!

I am still having fun making Christmas cards - this santa follows on from the children I did a few weeks ago. I have also done some hand painted penguins. And yes, you've guessed it, they will be for sale on our stall at the Mill Rd Winter Fair on December 5th from 10am-4.30pm!!!

Me and Lisa (who I share a studio with) are having a stall at the Mill Road Winter Fair in CAmbridge this year. It's on Saturday the 5th December so it's only a few weeks away. These were the first christmas cards I made for it........ still trying to think of some more ideas!

Trying to make the most of weekends before the weather gets too cold and makes it hard to draw outside for too long. Made sure I made it to the lemurs before it was closed this time.
I went with a friend so we went to see the sealion splash show - ended up with only one sealion as the other was not following the routine. Also went to see birds of the world which didn't go to plan either - an owl made a break for freedom over the children's zoo!
At the end of the day I went to the elephant house - the baby was asleep on the floor. It was pretty dark so quite hard to make out exact lines - but it was such a treat to see it in such close proximity.

Made the most of the sunshine and went back to the zoo yesterday with my housemate Amy. As she's not been before we tried to see ALL the animals which was good as it meant I went to see things that I usually miss out. The only disappointment was that we left the lemurs till last and by the time we got back their section was closed.
