Oh my God, is it June already? I can’t believe it. Slow down, 2014! You’re making me dizzy!
May was a beautiful month.
♥ The ground looked like this:
♥ I saw the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition at the Barbican Centre in London.
Yes, this was one of the corsets he designed for Madonna’s Express Yourself performance (Blonde Ambition Tour , 1990). You know… when she used to be cool. – Watch here.
♥ I visited Chatsworth in Derbyshire. Or Pemberley for the Jane Austen fans out there. It was GORGEOUS, as I knew it would be. Mr. Darcy has exceedingly good taste. :0)
♥ And I did lots and lots of illustrations. I worked on a number of private commissions and I am currently working on my second children’s book. More about that soon, I promise.
So long, May! So long, Spring. It was a pleasure.
Hello, June. Hello summer. Please come on in. Make yourself at home…
This is the latest illustration I was commissioned to create, for the bedroom of a baby girl.
The baby’s name is Maria, so I kept thinking about Mary Lennox from The Secret Garden, one of my favourite characters in children’s literature. She has a bit of a temper and a mind of her own, but she is also imaginative and has a kind heart. The end of the book is gorgeous so I thought that Mary and the garden were the perfect inspiration for this drawing.
I hope baby Maria likes her illustration! :0)
