Have you seen?!!!!

.... The first issue of Matchbook finally arrived in our virtual mailboxes and I was a part of it! I have just been bursting to tell my little secret. I nearly fell off my chair when the super sweet Katie Armour contacted me a few months ago not only to tell me that her and her BFF Jane Lily Warren were planning to create a new lifestyle online magazine but also to tell me they would adore it if I would like to contribute. Umm Duh! I would love to! Eeek I just adore the project they assigned me too.

On the last page of every issue they shall feature my work. Hip hip! I get to illustrate a play on the "What's in my bag?" question, updated by imagining what would have been in the handbag of a famous style icon such as Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn or Coco Chanel. I hope you all enjoy this month's illustration featuring Audrey Hepburn's hand bag contents. Oh so Breakfast at Tiffany's... 





Oh and the best part... they have allowed me to sell them in my little shop as a print! Take a peek here...

I wonder who next month's lady shall be? hmmm

Wow wow wonderful love!! Such a great concept to work with and your illustrations are so beautiful, filled with life. Thank-you for your very sweet comment. It's encouraging to hear from you that you actually get by doing this. I believe, I believe. How long have you been illustrating professionally?
