Gorgeous, gorgeous: benconservato a.k.a. Emma Kidd

Amongst the other goodies I received last week in the mail, I was lucky to get my own little package of benconservato goodness from lovely Emma. I have been loving her art for just a little while now, her Etsy shop is an amazing gallery of original art, gocco & screen prints, lomos & photos, and she sews things!

I won a giveaway on Emma's blog, so I got a signed copy of Lucinda: A Tale of Believing in Yourself, a gorgeous book written & illustrated by Emma. Talent, much? Get one for yourself, and then tell me if the page starting in 'She felt invisible...' is not the best illustration? I think it is!

And also, is that not the best way to spend the morning, a cup of tea, half an apple scroll, and an amazing book?

I also got Monacled Cat Limited Edition Screen Print, which is gorgeous! The back of it reads:
Nous Vous Observons
We are Watching You
anti-terrorism takes many strange forms

Which I love, because it is true of all governments.

And Puppet Gocco 6 colour Print, which I love love love!

Sometimes I just spend, well, a lot of time in Emma's shop, looking at everything and planning what to get next.

Please note that all these artworks are copyright Emma Kidd. Thankyou!
