It's been a busy week for me so far. I'm now back in the glass studio for my first unassisted full week and it's been going fairly well. I was very rusty when I first started back so there's been the odd disaster here and there, but nothing major and I feel as though I'm making improvements all the time, even though they may not be terribly evident in the final results!

Whilst working in the studio and trying my best to fight off a rotten cold that seems to have infected the rest of my household, I've been working away on another book cover design.....Wuthering Heights.

Right back to the studio for me......xx

Mr Ripley

I've just added this new book cover illustration inspired by 'The Talented Mr Ripley' to my website. It's the first new bit of work I've done in a while and I've been trying to go down the 'less is more' route. I'm so easily tempted to just keep on adding more and more elements and I wanted to achieve something clean and concise.....I hope I've pulled it off. I enjoyed making it anyway and If you haven't read the book already I would definitely recommend doing so....tis very good!

This and that

Whilst I eagerly await the furnace going back on next week I have been trying to get on with lots of little tasks here and there before I have a stint working full time in the glass making studio. It's been difficult to keep myself focused on one task at a time as I tend to easily drift and get distracted but I'm slowly but surely getting there.

One of the tasks has been to do a spot of updating and redesigning of my Illustration website and Etsy shop. The latter of which I have decided to streamline and use only for selling prints, cards and hand cut pictures as I feel it's now time to completely move away from the textile work and focus on other things. It was starting to feel as though I was stretching myself a bit too thin, with two many identities and I think the illustration & glass work are definitely enough to getting on with.

2013 has been a bit of a slow starter for me so far, but I'm beginning to get into the swing of things and I'm excited about the possibilities of the year ahead.

Here are some nice sights I've seen so far......

Have a good week

New things!

Whoa, it's been a while....apologies for the lack of blogging action of late. The run up to Christmas just seemed to take over and I'm only just now starting to get back into the swing of things again. Well, first things first, here's to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2013! A bit late I know, but I wanted to wish it anyway.

OK, so that's the first new dealt with, now to the NEW website!!!! I've been working on a website to showcase my glass work for a while and finally managed to get round to all the little niggling finishing touches and now it's ready! I hope you like it, would be great to get some feedback so don't be shy.

Back soon xx
