I've just recently started working with a wonderful store called Terrain.
Terrain is located within Styer's, a gorgeous garden center just outside of Philadelphia.
They carry my line of seasonal tea towels and suggested I make a mushroom themed one.
Here's the design so far-I will also make this available as a print.

Anna Betts

It's safe to say that I have really neglected my blog over the last few weeks
and as I scramble to keep achieving everything I set out to do I just never seem
to make it here. It will certainly pay off when my next set of products are launched
next month and hopefully my childrens book project moves into the next stage.

So, here's some work by Anna Betts who is an illustration
student from Cambridge, England. Her blog is certainly worth checking out.
And here are some illustrations from an ongoing university project where
she's traveled the world with her illustrations following the path her
grandfather took as a tobacco trader from the 1960's-80's.
The result so far are these beautifully simple drawings evocative of
1960's travel posters.

Goes to Tanith Connolly for winning the Summer Tea Towel.

I'm offering my Summer Tea Towel to those who entered but didn't win for $12.
Just send me an email and I'll let you know how to purchase it.

And thanks for those who came by to Renegade in Williamsburg last weekend.
The wind and rain played havoc with our tent but we remained steadfast
and I had a great 2 days.
Here's a calm breeze free moment.
