i thought i’d quickly share this collage and gif i made for fritha of tigerlillyquinn. she was doing an instagram post for carex and wanted me to make a quick illustration for her. it seemed to lend itself very well towards being animated too, so i made a super simple gif. ones like this (literally a few frames) are so fun to make – i really should do more!
i particularly enjoyed making this because i used all of my favourite colours – mint, yellow and pink. they always look so good together and i think they suit this image very well.
if you’d like to commission a simple animated gif, pattern or collage from me, for personal use, your blog, licensing or for a publication (or anything else), you can contact me via email.

this year so far has been pretty hard to deal with, both on a personal level as well as on a level beyond myself. things are never easy, but they seem particularly hard and trying and i’m really struggling to cope. i feel like i’m getting closer to an edge that i will easily lose grip of.
so, as always a short list of ‘small things’ that have made me happy or lifted my spirits:
– drinking lots of green tea. it really does help to take a few minutes to have some calm. – the salted caramel green & blacks chocolate, it’s bloomin’ delicious. – ava sitting by my side to keep warm. she never really used to, and it warms my heart. – remembering to find beauty even on the worst days, if only for a moment. – kind people, always. – taking photos, always. – noticing that it’s slowly getting lighter in the evenings. – finding fantastic stamps in my favourite charity shop. – seeing my friends and acquaintances have small and bigger successes.
