Happy New Year...

Happy New Year everyone! Today is my first proper day at my desk since before Christmas. It feels lovely to have the house to myself and not have the incessant chattering of my little girl. She doesn’t even pause for breath! First day back at school today and she wasn’t impressed crying all the way there. It breaks my heart when we have mornings like that but I’ve everything crossed she’ll come out laughing and be back to herself.

On the run up to Christmas I did an illustrated advent calendar on my Insta and Facebook pages. The theme was Christmas around the world with each day focusing on a different country. I loved doing it and am keen to carry on as there are so many countries and not enough days. It was wonderful to draw things I wouldn’t usually draw and I learnt a lot about the world too. Below are some of the highlights…

The British Museum

Earlier this year I was honoured to be asked by The British Museum to illustrate their Christmas card. Here’s the final result. Available to buy now in the British Museum shop.
