In between commissions and prep for the up and coming craft fair I've been building a little website for someone...
She's a very talented hair and make-up artist, check out the site, especially the gallery for some very cool pics. She also got a rather nice last name!
I'm taking part in a local craft fair at the beginning of May so I'm working like crazy to get enough stock together! I've been trying to come up with nice vintagey looking stands for displaying my cards. I'd come up with the idea of buying a very cheap cardboard stand of eBay, then covering it in brown paper and fitting it inside an old suitcase! Sounds a bit rubbish doesn't it, trust me it looks better then described...
I'm really chuffed with how this has come out, but Its was obvious that I really needed another larger version of this for the display of my Flat Packs. Of course the hardest bit has been finding another suitcase and they suddenly seem to have very popular and I refuse to pay £30 for one!
Luckily on Sunday I found a decent sized one for the bargain price of £3, it was full of tools which where for sale, the guy on the stall was rather surprised I wanted the case and not his delightful collection of spanners!
I've ordered another card stand and am looking forward to getting it all finished so I can stop worrying about it!
I've also been working on something new for my online shop, calico hares!
These have been printed in my little studio and sew together on my vintage singer sewing machine. I have loved making these and I will have a few to sell at the Larkhall Festival on May 5th, fingers crossed people like them!
I'm Kat and I'm an illustrator living and working in Bath in the UK. This blog is a record of my artwork, projects and anything I think is interesting, I hope you'll read a little of my ramblings!
