Ettie's Elephants

It's been a bit quiet here recently I know. This is because I'm half-way through a project working with the lovely folks at the National Trust (as mentioned on a previous post) and, when I'm not doing that, I've been working on my new book idea. I warn you, it's a cute one and it features tiny elephants. You can't go wrong with a tiny elephant. I'll be sending it out to publishing types soon to see if anyone takes a liking to it...

What I drew today...

I've always wanted to draw a London Bus but nobody has ever asked me to and I've never had the time to do it for myself. Thankfully it cropped up recently and I got my chance...

Hug a Giraffe

Okay, so who had a soft toy when they were little that did everything with them and couldn't be left behind at home? I had a rabbit called Mendip. I still have a rabbit called Mendip, I just don't take him with me everywhere I go these days...he's enjoying a peaceful retirement on a shelf in my bedroom!

It's Monday and it's snowing...

Here's a blackbird for you. I love these little critters, we've got some very cheeky ones on our road who sit and stare at you with one beady eye and fly away at the very last minute.

Culzean Castle

If you're wondering what I'm up to at the moment, here's a sneak preview. I'm currently drawing a very detailed map for the lovely people at the National Trust of the Culzean estate. It's a beautiful country park on the coast in Ayrshire with plenty of buildings, wildlife and trees. They're open from April (which is when my map will be going up on show) so take a wee peak if you're ever heading that way...
