Address Book Sketch Book
Cath Kidson Spotty Address Book gets a felt-tip make over
I've been clearing out my book cases and found 7 empty and/or out-of-date address books and diaries.

I feel really bad throwing them away, especially as they we mostly given to me as gifts... but really, how many address books do you need?

Got to find a use for them all...
brush and marker pen fun
Patapri Collaboration
One of the great things about the internet is being able to communicate and collaborate with other illustrators and artists in other continents.

I recently worked (albeit remotely) with Yuko Uemura ,a designer and printer originally from Tokyo but now living in Chicago.

Regular Etsy shoppers are probably already familiar with her range of lovely hand printed textiles -

Anyways, with her top stichin'  and printin' skiills,  we turned the image above into these nifty household essentials...
Tea towels are the new black
Available in 3 different colour choices they are limited to just 50 and are available from Patapri online store from next week.

Fairly priced at $14 each.  Get 'em while they are... ummm... dry?
Thanks Yuko - you did a fantastic job!
