Something for the weekend...

As you probably know we love illustration just as much as making and baking! It's another one of our passions and because of it we're always on the hunt for new talent though this time it came to us...
I am so proud to have been immortalised by this lady and absolutely love the portrait she drew of me.

The Craft Guerilla
Craft Guerrilla by Bex Shaw
Bex captures everyday situations and transforms them with water colours, pen and ink in such a way that her subjects seems to reside in another era... her drawings are quite dreamlike and always make me smile!

Julie's Blue China
Blue and white china...

Windows filled with cakes, blue and white china cups, pretty dresses, book filled cases, sweetly whiskered cats, musicians and jazz dancers... all exquisitely drawn and alive on the pages of her drawing pad.
You can usually find Bex Shaw at Clerkenwell Vintage Fair capturing the souls and hearts of many visitors at her little table near the ballroom entrance door. If you do see her make sure to smile, she might just think you a worthy subject and add you to her collection!

So if you're looking for something to brighten even the drabbest of weekends, let's face it...we've had a few recently, then get you peepers onto her Flickr site and prepare to be delighted:
