The Secret Life of the Cat - Theresa Trapeza and Candyfloss Joss

Still continuing obsessions with the circus I thought I would put together a Coney Island Circus Sideshow inspired illustration. I started this off for the doodleswap so the original drawing will be chopped up and sent to doodlers around the globe. But this coloured version is available as an A4 and A3 print here.

If you're in the UK you may have watched Horizons "The Secret Life of the Cat". Camera's and GPS were put on the cats to track what they do when we're not looking. Well, those cats were far too savvy and fooled the makers into thinking all they do is wander around yowling and stealing each others food so this is my version of events with Theresa Trapeza and Candyfloss Joss!

Pussycat pots

I went to a pottery taster session this morning  as part of Open Studios. Great fun, could've carried on all day but sadly it was only a couple of hours. 

If you're local give it a go, the lady who runs it is fab, you can book here. My offering was somewhat predictable and I wish I'd had more time to tidy him up but can't wait to get them back glazed and fired in a couple of weeks. Throwing was great fun, mine was the tubby one at the back of those four, I can't take credit for the elegant bowls my friend and ma made! Will be sweet with some bluebells from the garden in once it's fired though. (I hope!)

I have been working solid on wholesale orders of bags lately but I will be uploading some Coney Island Freak Show inspired illustration soon as we spent a fabulous whirlwind week in NYC last week.(pics to follow soon!)
