Animal Spirit artwork showcased....I'm so chuffed....


This morning I was a bit taken back to discover that Animal Spirit's have used some of my creations using their fabulous stamps to promote their products for the forthcoming CHA trade show in America later this month.

I had been meaning to share this latest creation above using one of Sue's new releases, for a few days. So after receiving the news this morning thought it was the perfect way to thank Sue Coccia for her kind words of encouragement and showcasing my work. As someone who can't draw for toffee, I feel very humbled that an artist as talented as Sue, has displayed my work.


Animal Spirits stamps can be purchased in the UK from Sir Stampalot and direct from Earth Art International in the States. They may look a bit daunting at first as they are so intricate, but believe me they are a joy to work with and so rewarding as they lend themselves to wonderful colour combinations as you work your way through the fine details within each stamp. I find Copics the best medium to colour them in.

Congratulations - thrilled for you & super seeing these. I just love that butterfly with the purple & lime colouring & the monkey's aqua colouring is striking paired with the yellow & black. I can image Copics giving these a real vibrancy too.
