Super Special Festive Giveaway!

It is most definitely that time of year again, finally! Mince pies, Slade, advent calendars. I love it! Although I've been super busy recently (not complaining, I'm just getting my excuses in early) and I haven't had enough time to make lots of nice festive treats for you all.. I haven't even made any proper cards, shocking! So I hope this festive giveaway can make up for it.

- What can you win? Any THREE A4 prints from my Folksy store! Yay. Don't see what you like there? Pick three things from my flickr instead! Plus I'll throw in some extra goodies too (I'm thinking postcards, brooches, sticker & of course festive sweet treats)

- How do I win this loot? Easy peasy. Just comment on this post telling me your favourite thing about the festive season! You could also follow my blog, I'd appreciate it.. Just sayin' Then I'll randomly pick a winner (using a random number generator)

How long do I have to enter? I'll pick a winner on Monday 13th December 6PM GMT.



Lots of festive love,
Steph Says Hello

My Dream Band


Hello everyone!

Its been one massive snow day here in the UK today - now I'm warming my toes up and drinking a cuppa I thought I'd do a blog post, I haven't for ages!

This is a piece for the new Inkygoodness show, "Dreamboat" starting very very soon in Bristol. You can find out some more details here. If you're in or around it should be well worth a look. There are some really amazing artists involved!

The theme is "Dreamboat" and basically this is my dream band. Bit of a tenuous link I know but whatev's. I wanted to draw a cloud headed boy with a guitar, ok!

If you're around Leeds on Sunday 7th November then get yourself to the Corn Exchange and visit the Reet Sweet craft fair where I'll be having a stall among other awesome crafters / designers / cool people. I've got lots of brand new things up for sale including cute pin cushions, felt brooches and cuckoo clocks! Come down and pay a visit!

I just realised I hadn't posted my piece I made for the Lyrics & Type Exhibition currently taking place at the East Gallery, London (See my blog post with the details here) I'm very proud of it! I went down to London last week to have a look at all the work in screenprinted glory. Seriously.. If you're in London please check the exhibtion out, theres some gorgeous work up. If you feel like buying a (very limited edition 30 prints per artist) print then you can do so here. If you buy one of mine.. Well, I'll love you forever and ever.

Also, heres a video of the (very very busy) opening night!

Lend a Hand




I haven't been posting here as often as I should! So much for posting everyday, ey? Oh wells. I seem to have aquired a few more followers, so.. Hello! Thank you for following me :) He's a little gardening-based illustration whats been in my mind for a while. I still think theres something missing (maybe I need something else in the background?) Oh well! Gardening is something I've always wanted to get into. The lack of having a garden has always held me back though.. Guerilla Gardening maybe? Do any of you garden?

You're Nice!



Working on some little faces! I'm a bit brush happy these days. Illustrators / Designers.. Where do you get your photoshop brushes from? I'm looking for some brushes that have that "printed" feel / look to them. Can't find them ANYWHERE!

Contest! (of sorts)



Hello. Let me jump straight to the point.. I would like to run some kind of contest. I would also like a few more people to look at my work. Is this shameless self promotion? Possibly. But you could get something out of it!  Now I don't want anyone having to do anything too strenuous.. SO.. The 100th person to become a fan of my Facebook Fan Page gets some hand-drawn goodies / one big goodie from me. Sound fair? Become a fan!

EDIT: I just decided that to make this more fun and fair.. I'm adding another way to win. When I've reached 110 fans.. I will enter everyone who is a facebook fan into a prize draw to win some goodies too! Yay!

It's Exhibition Time!





I'm really happy to announce that my work is going to be part of Lyrics & Type 2! I'm so flattered to have been asked to take part. If you're in London between the 8th - 21st April and love screenprint, awesome artists, music and typography then come and check it out! There are some amazing artists taking part! I'm going down on the opening night, too. Should be a whole  lot of fun!

March Wallpaper for you!


Hello there! I hope you're all having a happy Friday :) I love that I posted about Spring being on the way.. As soon as hit "publish post" it pours it down. CHARMING. To cheer myself up on this cold, gross day I've made a March Calendar that you can download for free! Yay. I've never made one before so if the sizes are wrong, please let me know! I've made one iphone sized, too! I hope you like it!

P.S. I might add that the colours are a lot more vibrant than here on Blogger!

Cover Art

   Two posts in one day.. I'm really pushing the blogging - boat out! Still, I need to get in the blogging habit don't I? Maybe compulsive posting will work for me. Anyway, yeah.. I won a competition. Me! I am usually terminally unlucky when it comes to any kind of contest or coming first in anything. My work will be on the front (and back) of the new Pica Pica Magazine - a new magazine celebrating British craftiness. Now I'm usually fussy about entering design competitions (ethics an' all that) But this one was too lovely to pass up entering. I guess it's a good job I did, too :)
