Barn Swallow wallpaper



I recently found out that bird-watching guides have bird "voices" listed with each bird. I'm now very interested in the bird field guide and have been borrowing it from my boyfriend for quite some time. (I also make him do the bird voices sometimes, he is talented ;). This is the result of my current interest in the bird book: download 1920 x 2000 wallpaper

Thanks to everyone for reading my guest blog at d*s this week, this is my way of saying "thank you":)

I dream of letters: invite



There are loads and loads of calligraphy-ized invitations out there. But, because of the crowded text and overlap with the illustration, I thought they stood out from the pack. See more detail in the big image. From I dream of letters.

Eggo font: found


A while ago, I posted about eggo ads using a hand-drawn-ish font… and I managed to find it by accident. The font's called Blockhead and it's from Emigre.

marsupials




After watching several shows about mammals, I had an urge to draw marsupials. I re-instated my library card so I could get some pictures. It's been a long time since I've drawn like this, but I like doing it.
