A rainy day

Spend some quality time with a friend…

Gira and Mr Killums

I’ll be signing-off here now for what remains of this year…

Wishing you all a fun, festive (and friendship-filled :) close to 2012,
and a very happy, fulfilling and creative 2013!

After several weeks of posts about my travels in a far off land I think it’s time for me to face reality and return to the streets of Amsterdam! And what better way to do that than with a fifth instalment in my ongoing (if infrequent!) ‘Amsterdam Cats in Windows’ series…

Spring (must surely be!) in the air, if the friskiness that’s been ensuing outside my window recently is anything to go by. (The below image is an animated GIF – it might take a moment or two to load properly).

I like the transitional, almost-but-not-quite spring colour palettes provided by these two charming couples…

Ha! Just as I moved my mouse to click on the ‘Publish’ button it started snowing again here (first time since Christmas)! I hope no one has laid any eggs…

In the spirit of the day, here’s a scar(il)y lo-fi monster movie for your viewing pleasure.

Sketchbook doodling… in search of my lost mojo #creative_block #ugh #sketchbook #doodling #drawing #acrylic_ink #white #anthracite #monochrome #leaves #birch #botanical #pattern #negative_space #design Bold, beautiful brassica #cruciferous #cabbage #leaf #phyllotaxy #purple #green #verdant #fibonacci #pattern #raindrops #roofgarden Gira sez "Eat yer greens!" #good_advice #yum #catgrass #cyperus_zumula #teeth #canines #green #grey #cat #gira #catsofinstagram September is upon us (!) and this is an illustration I made towards the end of last year for @essie_letterpress ‘s 2017 Artist’s Almanac. The almanac is produced in South Africa and the only stipulation for the illustration (apart from colour and sizing guidelines) was that it should fit a Southern hemisphere timeline… September is early springtime in South Africa, when the remarkable fynbos wildflowers begin to bloom and southern right whales migrate through SA’s coastal waters where they can be seen frolicking close to shore.

The almanac’s cover illustration (partially pictured here) is by the talented @ikronk

If you’ve got any healing good vibes to spare (I know that’s a big ask in this perennially tough world) please send them Gira’s way ☄💙🐈

'Orso’ by Simona Vergani (1998, white Carrara marble, h 350cm) can be found in Amsterdam’s Erasmuspark, and is definitely one of the coolest ❄🐧❄ public sculptures I’ve encountered!
