Im always reminded of my love for film, when I finally collect my images and rush home to see them. These are taken between Victoria Bay, Barrydale, on the top of Table Mountain and at a wedding at the bottom of the mountain.
The holidays are a strange time for me. When every one is free, its usually the time I am the busiest. Despite a plug exploding when I put a charger in, burning two fingers pretty badly and a ton of work, I managed to slip away to Knysna for a night on a house boat.
These are a few moments caught on film. Id like to add here that Lani Spice has been an amazing friend and inspiration, getting me to pick up my camera again.
Once upon a time this illustration by Verity Wilson was used on an Element t-shirt. Her super-sweet brother, Dustin, asked me to use it as inspiration for her Christmas present and so it now it lives on, in cheerful colour, on a pillowcase.
It's a little different from what I usually do - in that I illustrated it straight onto fabric without the use of a reference. I don't always trust my drawing skills but I'm very happy with the outcome here.
I befriended photographer Jono over Facebook. We had many mutual friends and he was the first to respond to my 'Make More Give More' initiative from a few years back. I made an owl. He responded... I sent it. BFFE.

Lately he has been working on a series of night portraits and Im very happy to be apart of them.
For years I have been working on and off in a burger restaurant, where I have made some of the most wonderful friends. One of which commissioned me to make this. The burger pillow!
Ive had a few commissions over Christmas and been sitting on some things I'd LOVE to share. Finally everyone is gifted and now I can spread the stitching love.
I found a wonderful little DIY print section in a Frankie magazine and created my first 'custom print background'. Tropical no?
Its sewn into a coffee bag graciously stolen from Deluxe Coffeeworks. I love how it makes the colours look. Im a sucker for colours. I tried doing a monochrome embroidery the other day and it bored me to death.
