‘Queen of the slipstream’

This little lady came about because I was asked to make something a bit more ‘risque’. My mind went straight to a flash of side boob, and once that idea is in there…


Work in progress…

Busy, busy

I seem to be having a moment. I was always hoping it would come, and here it is. Living the dream, living my dream. Making pictures, and having found an audience that wants them. 

Exciting and busy, exhausting and busy, full and busy.

It’s nice.

Ode to Jeffrey aka ‘I can’t tell you why’

We lost our lovely friend Jeff. Our first fur baby, the sweetest, gentlest tortoiseshell in the world, she was old. I decided to put into practice the idea of a cat print, because when I draw an animal the first thing I naturally draw is a cat. 

The obvious connotations connected with cats and middle aged women came to mind.

And then of course the need to ensure the cat was in control of the situation came next.

This is and will always be a major no, no in the design biz. The orphan. The word or letter left all on its own  – well, crap!

 I cannot make it go away, so that this link looks all pretty and well thought out. 

I don’t know what to say. I’ve got nothing, I’m sorryhttps://www.etsy.com/au/shop/EmilyRedsArt 

4 years studying Graphic Design, and I’ve got orphans. Never mind, I’ll stick to making pictures instead.

‘This old love’

I cram read in the Summer. 

Throughout the year, I’m often hanging on by a thread. There is kid stuff, kid notes, study for me and them, appointments, haircuts, shopping, cooking, washing, gardening – and still trying to find one on one time for each family member.

So, reading is the first thing to go. I can manage a few articles, a quick flick through a magazine. But the minute I see a spine, binding, and a reasonable strength cover on a publication, I’ve got no time. Not till Summer. Then I read 11 books.
