  • Lettering & water color cards

  • When you love lettering and pattern design, you'll end up having far more sketches than actual finished pieces.

  • Old window framing

  • Are you starting to feel the Autumn cold yet? Yesterday I went to a market and it had been raining so the ground was all muddy and slippery.
