Emma Lee and, seeing this image, thought that I may well hold on to them, give them a good wash and starch and dress with a simple floral display. I came across her work from the latest Cox and Cox catalogue and have been newly inspired. Thank you Emma!

pomme-de-jour blog, I had an instant warm flashback to when I was a child. Around 1970 or 1971, my mother cut out some of these colourful, bold graphic flowers and pasted them onto my white toybox. I still feel very fond of the pattern - there is someting of the Spirograph about it too. (ahh! Spirograph, now that is another post).

Elderflower Fields is a new festival being organised in Sussex by some friends. I was asked to design the poster which was a fun project. If you fancy a weekend of music, sport, Sussex countryside, camping and dancing, sign up to their earlybird ticket line at www.elderflowerfields.co.uk. See you there!

Five of my friends celebrated their birthdays in January and another two in December. It seemed the perfect opportunity to rustle up a simple card design. I enjoyed thinking of a different colour theme for each friend. As I thought of each person a colour palette came to mind. Here they are.

About eight years ago I planted a beautiful silver birch tree in the garden. When I look out of the kitchen window it is 'reverse silhouetted' against the dark green yew hedge beyond. It inspired this illustration.

Often, when I am dozing off to sleep, my mind skips through the day and all its visual feasts and, all on its own, comes up with a fresh new image. I keep a sketch book and pencil by my bed, quietly switch on the light and jot down the brand new image, delivered to my subconscious visual 'inbox' by an unknown and most welcome sender.
