tote bags coming soon!

Originally uploaded by Indescribble

After laboriously hand painting a tote last week and posting it up on le facebook, I'm getting a batch silk-screened to make them an affordable affair because the feedback on the design was great and loads of people were asking how to get one and how much etc.
So hopefully in the next couple of weeks you'll be able to get your hands on them in the indescribble shop for under a tenner. Bargain :)

Ok so Halloween is upon us again. Love it!! but so is the mexican festival Dias de los Muertos ( the Day of the Dead) where they celebrate and honour their dead. I like the idea of celebrating what has gone before, those loved and lost in such a vibrant way. Acknowledging death and embracing life.
So I had a cracking drawing session last night and this is what came out :) check out my flickr for more views. Gonna scan it in a little bit so you can see the details.

Bits and Bobs

That's it, it's now obvious that I'm not a regular blog poster. I'm resigning myself to that. However, a beautiful friend from my Uni days, Jessica (also a very talented artist and illustrator you can find her blog here ) popped up last night and requested I post some more. So here's a little update.
So after my first solo show, now way back in July (where does the time go?)I had intended to move up to Leeds with my sister but jobs being what they are, she bounced back home scuppering the plan. Then a job came up with Hallmark in Bradford so I applied for it and psyched myself for moving 4 hrs North by myself and taking on a full time position. Got through to the second round of interviews but alas they hired someone else. Northern plans scuppered again. So now the plan is Bristol, get a place in a studio, carry on freelancing and get bill paying job!

Artistically, moving on from my favourite piece from the Ladies and Gentlecreatures show, 'These Seasons Will Change' I've been working in pencil more and exploring natural/ botanical patterns mixed with graphic intersecting shapes and lines.
I'm really enjoying this style and have another piece that's working in it but can't post it up quite yet because it's being used in an exciting little project.

In other news, the show art work is up on the indescribble bigcartel shop with prints starting at just £5! and for this month I've put the limited edition screen-print of 'These Seasons Will Change' on sale at 50% to £30 + P&P. Keep your eye out for more offers :)

Ok, enough for now. Must get back to building the new website! will update soon (I promise Jessica :))
