"A simple combination of sheer luck and more talented friends"

I am busy working on a really exciting but still top secret, because I can't talk about what I'm doing, I figured that now is a perfect time to talk about what all my talented friends are doing! I often marvel at how talented my friends are and rather than keeping them all to myself, I thought I should share so here goes... 

Benjamin Cooney: Comic dude, Illustrator, Southpaw, Superstitious

Ben writes and draws comics and is an awesome illustrator.His designs have featured on skateboards and t-shirts that have been sold around the world. He is one talented dude!

This is one of my favourite pieces by Ben, see lots more on his website.

This is another fave and his most recent piece, printed in blue risograph, the detail in this is amazing. This along with other paper based treats can be found in his shop.

Seleena Laverne Daye : Artist, Craftster, Zinester & Dancer Extraordinaire!!!

Seleena is a super-stitcher, her weapons of choice are needle, thread and felt, she creates a whole world of wonders from felt, check out her website for more info and lots more pictures!  

Alison Erika Forde: painter extraordinare, lover of bears, curios and all things wooden.

Alison's world is full of paintings, illustrations and collages of all sorts of anxiety stricken characters often awaiting impending peril in their playful scenarios.  

This is one of my favourite paintings by her, see lots more on her website.

Also, Alison has recently opened a little online shop where you can buy all sorts of treats, like these postacrds...
