Thanks to everyone who has stopped by sakurasnow this year, and for your fun, supportive, inspiring comments. And thanks to all of you who have bought my prints ‘n things over at Etsy – I’m humbled, honoured, and grateful. You guys rock!

I’ll be closing my Etsy shop for the rest of 2012 at the end of tomorrow (Friday 7 Dec), so if you’re still hunting for the perfect gift for the trickier members of your gift-giving circle head over to my shop before Friday ends (everywhere in the world) and you might find just the thing for…

In the unlikely event that stocks don’t last I’ll send some specimen collection cards instead.

Series 2, No.6 [Brittle Star]

My ‘Wonders from a Cabinet of Curiosities’ series (or “witch’s pantry” as a friend told me her picture framer called it! ;) continues to grow. New creatures printed during my recent printmaking session include a squid, a salamander, a nautilus, sea anemones and a brittle star. They’re all available as limited edition silkscreen prints in my shop now.

Series 3 – No.1 [Nautilus] and No.3 [Salamander]
(with a much-loved and well-thumbed copy of Albertus Seba’s
epic 18th Century tome ‘Cabinet of Natural Curiosities’

For those of you who expressed an interest in seeing the colour print I alluded to in my previous post… thanks!, and I hope to blog about it soon (just need to make a few more inroads into the client deadlines that are looming before I get there).
I can tell you it involves more creatures (surprise surprise!)… not bottled this time, but still very much in grave danger.

light play

I seem to be a little obsessed with the play of light and shadow around home at the moment. Perhaps it’s the time of year, when the sun is at just the right angles (particularly mid-afternoon and dusk) to cast light and shadows in interesting and beautiful ways. Or perhaps it’s that as I go about the task of packing-up to move I’m feeling a little nostalgic about leaving these spaces behind.

light play

Either way, I’m loving it.

light play

And despite a touch of nostalgia, I’m very excited about discovering how the sunlight and shadows play in a new space…

(The mirror ball isn’t ours – it came with the apartment – but I am sorely tempted to pack it along with everything else! Perhaps if I ask nicely our soon-to-be-ex landlord will let me have it as a souvenir :)

draw the line

a new home

On an entirely unrelated note I just wanted to mention how very happy I was to receive a comment last weekend from Lisa, who found creature No. 2 in the Vondelpark and very kindly gave him a new home (he’s been hanging with the good folk at Greenpeace :). Thanks Lisa, for taking care of him, for finding me here to let me know… and for the great photo >>

I recently printed the fourth series in my ongoing 'Wonders from a Cabinet of Curiosities' project. This time the theme is vegetable rather than animal (fabulous fungi in fact 🍄), and what better day to post this series than #MycologyMonday (which, I believe, is a thing on IG!) Swipe --> to see all six 'shrooms in the series. Limited edition silkscreen prints are now available at the always awesome @otherist in Amsterdam (or from my online shop - link in bio) - #screenprinting #zeefdruk #serigraph #mushrooms #fungi #mycology #terrarium #glassjar #belljar #cloche #curiositycabinet #blackandwhite #graphic #drawing #pattern #art #printmaking #get_imprinted - #morel #oyster #nameko #crepidotus #amanitamuscaria #shiitake -
