horses dogs and penguins


I've got internet now and the carboard boxes are gradually dissapearing from our living room. Our new flat finally looks like a place to live and not a messy storage.
Back from short holiday which was not a proper holiday as I have been busy drawing horses for Penguin (the photo above shows how busy it was). I was drawing on the plane, in the garden, in coffee shops, in the park and on a beautiful meadow by the forest (there was a stork on the meadow too so I had a good company). There was this little boy sitting next to me on the plane and as soon as he's seen me sketching he started crying that he wanted to draw too. I think next time I should take an extra set of colour pencils. Anyhow...I've got a brilliant job - even 5 year old kids are jealous!
I made some dog sketches too - kind of reward after each horse drawing fiinished. Dogs are fun to draw!

new place

Last weekend was far too busy and too exciting and I think we will need a good few days to recover. Moving flat, a wedding, a very successful craft fair and an overdose of good news is kind of too much for one weekend. My studio is a mess and I there is no internet at our new place yet. Hope it is going to change soon. In the meantime I am using my mobile coffee shop studio.

moving home

I wish life looked like on the picture above. Instead I am surrounded by cardboard boxes, black bin bags and bubblewrap trying to find my way through. Moving in not fun!
The good news is that there is a cat flap in our new place! Which I suppose means that we'll be having all the cats from neighbourhood coming over for afternoon tea.
