Freebie: Calendar January 2015

Happy New Year!!! I have a long list of resolutions this year. I would love to read more, do yoga every morning, cook a new dish every week, collaborate more, be more sociable, do not cut my hair short and etc. One of my resolutions is to start sharing every month one page of calendar. So here is the first one (I know, it's slightly late), you can download it here. Each of us is a little planet with its own climate and inhabitants, but we're still in need to be closer to other planets. I think january is a good month to see friends, drink lots of tea, stay late and chat, watch films together, make arts and crafts together. It's all about being together. Happy January!

What makes a good notebook?

I love stationery! Especially notebooks and sketchbooks. I have many in my art materials drawer. It boosts my inspiration to have a lovely notebook with me to write my ideas in and to doodle something. It's why the first listing in my etsy shop PigeonPigeonPigeon is a set of A5 notebooks with lovely paper!

Jelly Jumble app: behind the scene

I always wanted to create an app. Last year at Children Media Conference in Sheffield I met a producer of Storytoys - Emmet O'Neill. I emailed him an idea that I had for a while. He liked it and a year later the wonderful story-game app 'Jelly Jumble' is on Appstore!

Made in Neverland

When I have a friend's birthday coming and a spare hour, I always draw them a card! I'd love to have some of them printed one day. This year seems quite busy with work, but I hope to find some time anyway. Meanwhile here are some of my recent cards!

I have an agent, wohoo!

One of the milestones of the career of an illustrator is to find an agent. As lots of illustrators know, it's so hard to find one! Of course you can trade without an agent as well and some illustrators manage it very well. But I find it quite helpful to have someone to look at my contracts, negotiate better fees and also find publishing work through their network.

Vinyl wall stickers, yay!

One of my followers on Instagram happens to be Aida, artist hunter for Camaloon.com. She asked me to send them some of my illustrations to make vinyl wall stickers. And I did! I always wondered how my artwork would look on walls. And apparently it looks wonderful.

Freebie Cat and Bear

I just came back from New-York where I went to work with a group of writers on the preschool TV show I'm writing for in the moment. Luckily I had some free time as well and saw many inspiring things around. Including pretty to-do/dreams/shopping lists in the Paper Source which is one of the best independent stationery shops in the city. I decided to do some myself: cat-list and bear-list! You can download them for free here! And the b/w version is available here.
