Be Bold prints

The original of the Be Bold, Be Bold paper-cut design has sold, but the white-on-black print is available on Redbubble, as an art print or other things (e.g. a hardback notebook which I think looks rather striking).

The other, more fox-centric, “Be Bold” (originally a calendar page) is also available as a print, etc, too.

Halloween edit

KJenningsHappySkeletons

I’ve updated my Redbubble store to include a Halloween category, bringing together (and updating) a few old pieces, with some new bats and skeletons thrown in for good measure.

In particular, I’ve updated Girls Running From Houses to be a repeating pattern and put it on a few more items, including (by request) hardcover journals.

Alice’s Tea Party

Last year’s Alice in Wonderland design is now up on Redbubble! (And as of the time of posting, there are about 12 hours left to put in Christmas orders, and a discount code for 20% off: LASTDAY).

 

Leftovers from the week that was

This week's pictures from Twitter etc

This week’s pictures from Twitter etc

  • I spent the weekend (at fairly short notice) in Sydney for a family function, but also caught up with several good friends to talk about podcasts, art, Dorothy Dunnett, comics, freelancing, illustration and stories. It was extremely pleasant, and also I got to hold a real live pet rabbit (it looks just like a rabbit!).
  • As you may be able to see above, the pineapple and raven fabrics arrived from Spoonflower and turned out beautifully – the watercolours on the pineapples printed particularly well. One of my cousins also ordered the pineapple skirt from Redbubble and it is very cute! (Since it’s white knit, you’ll probably wantto wear tights or something under it, as is true for all white skirts).

  • Congratulations to all the Ditmar nominees! I’m particularly thrilled to have a story nominated this year – “A Hedge of Yellow Roses” from Ticonderoga Publications’ anthology Hear Me Roar, but since I have interests in so many publications (whether as illustrator, fan or friend) mostly it’s just fun to see some of the many great works of 2015 celebrated.
  • Want to buy (relatively) affordable original art by established and rising stars of illustration? Check out Every Day Original!
  • The opera(!) of Shaun Tan and John Marsden’s remarkable picture book The Rabbits is coming to Brisbane next month!

    • I have finally (thanks to Kate Eltham) started listening to the podcast You Must Remember This, which is indeed epic and fascinating.
    • I want to learn to animate just so I can make book trailers like this gorgeous Isabella Mazzanti Carmilla:

Black-Winged Angels

  • Happy Valentines!

Flight of Ravens

Flight of Ravens - Spoonflower wallpaper

I have worked the ravens from January’s calendar into a repeating design of birds, stars and feathers. Pattern-making is something I’ve wanted to do more of, and it’s a lot easier to arrange existing images than to draw new things when laid out with a bad back!

They are now up on Spoonflower as fabric, wallpaper and wrapping paper – I’ve ordered a sample and will show more detail when that arrives.

They are also on Redbubble on shirts, notebooks, phone covers and other such items. I’m eyeing off a duvet cover.

I really am rather happy with these fellows.

I have a new design up at Redbubble! This was originally intended as endpapers for a current project, but we went with another subject instead. So here is a tangle of thorns and flowers available on several items, including leggings and journals.

Illustration Friday: Nature

Illustration Friday: Tiger

Tyger Tyger, burning bright
In the forests of the night…

-William Blake, “The Tyger”

A little cut-paper piece, made while listening to a Stuff You Missed In History Class episode on Calamity Jane (sometimes what I was listening to associates itself lingeringly with a piece).

RedBubble has recently introduced hardcover journals (lined, blank or grid pages), so I have uploaded this design there: Tyger, Tyger. I’m waiting for my first order to arrive so I can see how they look – very excited.
