Drawing Inspiration: Baby summer adventures

It’s been a hectic few weeks (mostly because of a poorly/teething baby) but there have been moments of fun in between.

We managed to get away for a one night glamping holiday to Glastonbury – 1 night, 1 baby, 1 fiat 500 full of soooo much stuff.  But it was magical and so worth it, and it boosted my confidence in us having more trips further afield.   Sometimes it’s hard to believe that I’m the same person who went cherry blossom spotting in Japan on my own…

For our mini adventure, we stayed in The Love Shack at Redlake Farm.  It’s basically a very pretty shed next to a big pond on a tranquil campsite just outside Glastonbury.  I saw a badger running about in the middle of the night 🙂 It was gorgeous and we managed to stay warm and cosy.  Plus, there was a very friendly peacock.  Look at it’s crazy dinosaur feet!  It was amazing to see one so close.  Tristan is a bit obsessed with birds at the moment, but I’m not sure he saw the connection between this beastie and the blackbirds in our garden yet.

We went to a party with some wonderfully creative friends, and I decorated Josh’s shoes to pixie them up a bit.

I’ve got a few projects on the go at the moment, and am really looking forward to the launch of PIG/PORK by Pia Spry Marques – a new book from Bloomsbury Sigma featuring my illustrations which comes out in July.    And of course, we are all really looking forward to the end of teething…
