Mr Moustache Owl and Friends

I have been quite busy with crafty arty related things recently. I was asked by Anorak Magazine to do a full page illustration for them, which I have been really excited about. I love Anorak, it's one of the best magazines out there. I first came across it in Borders a few months ago, and decided that it wasn't wierd to buy a kids magazine because it was so amazing! packed full of cute illustrations and drawings I couldn't resist. It's the sort of fun, creative, cool magazine that I would want my kids (if I had any) to read. My artwork will be in the Spring Issue, so I will show it you when it's out.

Another project I have been working on, is a new range of Plush creatures aimed at kids, exclusively  for the nice folk at aaltomoderna, this is where Mr Moustache owl and friends come in............................................

These guys are experimental prototypes for the range...................


......at first I really hated these guys as they didn't turn out how I had envisaged, but now I am warming to them, especially Mr Moustache owl. I think with a few tweaks they may work out..........

 

....I'm quite keen on Pocket Squirrel but not sure if he'll make the grade just yet.................

  

......as for this guy, I'm not a fan...bit boring, he's on the brink of being out the gang........................


........I think horsey/lama type thing is my favorite and has potential....we'll see. I'll keep you posted on the next round of..........'THE P FACTOR'  ( the Plush factor!)

....On a completely different note I had my hair lightened and cut on Saturday. It was really making me feel down being so dark and my fringe had all grown out. I feel much better for it.
