The Month Ahead : National Post

Yesterday the National Post had an illustration of mine on the cover of their Arts & Life section! Each month they do an illustration about the month ahead. So I chose skiing and snowboarding for January!
I spent the last 2 weeks in BC (my home province) cramming in as much time cross country and downhill skiing as possible.

This piece was art directed by Daniel DeSouza, who is wonderful to work with.

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays Everyone! Above is an illustration I made of a Toronto Christmas holiday scene. I love the big old converted houses with multiple residences. And the little cafes and great window displays!

I'm in my home town of Nelson BC for my holiday. And I'm loving the mountains! Downhill and cross country skiing is the best!

Hand Knit Gloves

There are two pairs of hand knit, wool, Sanquhar gloves for sale in my Etsy shop. One red/white pair and one black/white pair!

The gloves measure approximately 6 1/2 inches from tip of middle finger to bottom of palm (not including wrist), by approximately 3 3/4 inches width of palm. Measurements are taken from the glove laid flat (not with hand inside). Because it's a knit, the gloves are quite stretchy.

The gloves are knit in the Duke style of the Sanquhar pattern. The wrists have a cute little knitted bow (traditionally the wearers initials would be knit here).

The yarn is a lovely, hand dyed, merino lambs wool from France. The wool company is Renaissance Dying. And they use natural plant based dyes.

These would sure make for a special Christmas gift for a lucky lady in your life ...
