Goofing Around

Talitha writes:

“So,

I’ve been kind of on hold with the book due to the holidays, but I haven’t had much time to pick up the old wacom tablet and just draw something. I forced myself to slow down and doodle a bit tonight. This is what came out. Hope you like it :)

New Ceramic Work by Trina Dalziel

Trina Dalziel writes,

“Hi Lilla,

This autumn I’ve spent a few days painting china at a wonderful shop /workshop in Bloomsbury, London. It’s called Cosmo China and it has been running for over twenty years. Artists are invited to paint, there work is displayed on their own shelf and if their work sells they are invited back…I have to wait and see if mine sells! Sitting around a table with artists and using a paintbrush is a lovely change from working at home and too much click clicking of my mouse!”

New Work by Trina Dalziel for Company Christmas Cards

Trina Dalziel writes:

“Hi Lilla
I was commissioned to illustrate these company Chritmas cards a few weeks ago. Viadynamics is an Innovation Consultancy and The Toolworks, it’s sister company, makes bespoke web tools – though it was explained to me, I don’t totally understand what this means! – I just love that they were so keen to have such non–corporate type cards to represent their brands. I hope we all start to see more and more of this in 2010.

Usually I make my own Christmas cards for family and friends and for clients but I haven’t had time yet so I was delighted that there was room on the printing plate for a set for me – I won’t need to be glittering and glueing and cutting at the last minute this year!

best wishes
Trina”

Allison Cole writes:

“Hi Lilla,

Just wanted to write to let you know about an art opening that occurred on Friday, December 11th at the Pinkcomma Gallery in Boston – a one-night-only group show, Design Nearby: Big Print, Lil Print. The focus was on local print artists selling originals and editions of all different medias and sizes. I exhibited some prints and tote bags, also available on my Etsy store, and fellow illustrators Jenn Ski and Susy Pilgrim Waters were there as well.”
