Night flowers

Today I spent time working on my last piece for my exhibition which will be hanging from around the 16th of June onwards for a few weeks. Address and exact dates will follow soon. I am doing eight illustrations of which I am getting 10 prints made of each. They will be all be bigger than anything I have had printed out before – The smallest is about 45cm wide and 60cm high while the two biggest are about a metre high. These are all based on the theme of “The Midnight Picnic” and are dark and forresty and full of fireflies and glowing lanterns. I am also going to make some toys to match; little folks rugged up for a midnight picnic, carrying picnic baskets and fearful expressions.

I will be selling some of these limited edition prints online so stay tuned for further details.

Also, the gallery for last month’s Month of Softies is coming along. I am sorry for the wait. Life has been busy. I have had a few emails asking what this month’s theme is so I will just quickly remind you that it’s “May Flowers“. Fun!

  2. You are so amazingly talented – that image is gorgeous! I’ll definitely be at the exhibition – can’t wait!

  3. Perfect timing! I’ll be in Melbourne from beginning of July – can’t wait!

  4. Its great – given all your other work and stress – that you are keeping the softies running Claire – just take your time and do it when you can! Contrary to my expectations – May Flowers really taxed my imagination – strange – I thought it would be easy. I’m well into it now though and enjoying it immensely!

    Hi! Only 10 prints of each??! You are definitely going to have a higher demand than that on your hands!I am definitely up for a few purchases!
    Your passion/work is full of talented and is quite inspiring.

  14. Thank you for following up about the show. I wish I was in Melbourne to see it. Will the toys be part of the exhibition? That would be fun. I can imagine, then, the temptation to make physical scenarios or worlds for them, too. A hop skip and a jump into puppetry or animation! Interesting how these areas are so closely related.
    I was happy for you having loobylu added added to the Pandora Archive.

  15. I love this one, can’t wait o see the others. Fun to see your toy characters making it into the two-dimensional world!
