good days

Exciting things today! Pocket Carnival featured in The Age newspaper, in the Saturday A2 section. Hurrah! They published a little mini interview with me:

And a little picture of my Bunnykin Coinpurse, available in my shop on etsy.com - thanks The Age!

I also happened to go to a great little op shop near my house (after brunching on fruit toast and peppermint tea with Chris) and got this fabulous mini teacup. I'm a naughty painter and will just as likely use a cup of tea to clean my ink nibs as a jar of water, hence our teacups are sometimes a bit inky. But not anymore! This is my designated water cup from now on. And a new illustration!

Congratulations on the feature, you are a horrid little self-promotor ;p.

You should be very happy! You kick butt! I hope you get tons of sales, you certainly deserve it. I am gushing on you, sorry.

And yes, seems we all have the same traits, I have various receptacles that really shouldn't be used as gouache holders, painty water and ink. They are usually just the right size and shape and who cares what they are supposed to hold!
