plenty of things to do!

I have a whole lot of projects going on, some for work, other more personal, and everything tends to mix a little bit and to be stuck together in a big mess, just like these cars (a pattern collection I designed some time ago for Juna Studio) stuck in the middle of a huge traffic jam...! I have to get my head a little clearer... and working things off would probably be just the right way to do it...!

oh dog!

I have been asked to design animal patterns in a less childish way, something that could be used on fabric for adults (although I think it could also be used for kids... ), so here go my new dog patterns! what do you think? where do you see them?

being surrounded by nature...

... is healthy, beautiful and inspiring! I hope to show you some pictures of the wonderful garden we live in very soon! 
Have a nice start in the week!

I'll be back very soon!!

the rhythm of publications on this blog has dramatically slowed down during the past weeks... I'm sending all my apologies to you, my lovely readers!! I hope to be back to my regular posting rhythm very soon, I promise I will do my very best!
In the meantime, here is a little treat for your eyes... it's an illustration I made this summer for lovely Courtney who came across my blog and made some nice comments on one of my patterns... after chatting for a little while and getting to know each other better, we worked out an illustration of her and her hubby John for their wedding - on a caribbean theme as you can guess - ! They are now happily married and I had a great time working with her! 
Congrats Courtney! ;)

some news at last!

I have arrived in Lecce, south Italy, about a week ago and I am moving in today! So the excitement is big! I have been taking some intensive italian classes which has been very interesting so far. I have also gone to several beaches and I hope to see more very soon! 
Now, I don't know if it's the fact of being a bit tired after all this traveling, settling down, etc... or the fact that I now live in a country that makes great coffee (even if I'm not a coffee fan myself...) that inspired me, but the result is this tiny cup of coffee and all it's flavor & scent drops!
I might not be able to connect to the internet in the following days so please forgive my absence! I promise to come back as soon as I can! :)

Have a nice end of week-end everyone!
