Three girls, a frenchie and an apple

I've always wanted to customise a set of babushka dolls. After many hours of sketching, erasing and painting. I came up with this...a friends picnic scene with my all-time favourite pooch. I hope you like it.

Miss Rabbit

Miss Rabbit is never late. Armed with a multifunction clock bag she is always on time and well accessorized. Today she is sporting her latest purchase, Karen Walker X Ray Vision sunglasses.

Background much?

Tired from walking her dog, Kira (named after the gelfing in The Dark Crystal) stands next to the phone booth across the road from the park to daydream about a few of her favourite things.

So I'm trying something new and I'm not sure if it's working...my little sister suggested backgrounds...a scary word for a lover of minimalism and negative space. Thoughts?

The end of a love story

Gone are the days of tweed and pearls for fashion house Chanel... at the ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 2010 show British pop star Lily Allen performed in an amazing dress made of sequins and feathers followed by a string of models wearing an assortment of frocks based around a reconstruction of the Hameau de la Reine, Marie Antoinette's play farm at Versailles.

Blast from the past

I found these three cheeky girls hidden under a stack of old magazines. Funny how you forget...

Off to the premier...

The other night Natalia put on her brand spanking new outfit and went to the screening of Wes Anderson's new film Fantastic Mr. Fox. She had a great time and thought the film was charming. She particularly liked the little red apples on Mrs Fox's dress and the cool calculator watch Mr Fox was wearing.
