London to Brighton


Hello you lovely folk.
A few work friends and myself are going to be cycling the London to Brighton in June. Its 54 miles, we are raising money for the British Heart Foundation. And we need your help!
If you are able to help by sponsoring us that would be brilliant, even if its a couple of pounds.
You can help us by Texting PHAR48 with the message £3 to 70070 or by donating online
www.justgiving.com/teampharmarama

Your money will go straight to British Heart Foundation who are funding thousands of research projects around the UK that are fighting heart disease.


Or if you you're not in a position to donate, it would be great if you could reblog this and share it with the lovely internet folk.

Thank you so much for your support!

Bens Birthday Book

 
 
 
 
 

Hello to you all, and I hope your weather has been as nice as it is here, if a little windy.
A little while ago I was asked by an old school friend to create a birthday book for her nephew Ben. She wanted the book to be about him and his family, a keep sake. 
She wrote the story with her family and I illustrated the pages along side, bound the book and sent it off. 
The last image is Ben reading his book, its great to see something coming to life and the audience it is intended for enjoying it.

All grown up




My little sister is all grown up and moved out. I thought I would give her a little housewarming gift. As she had all of the bits and bobs she needed, I drew her this image to add a bit of colour and art to her flat.

Work in progress


Hello everyone.
Here is a late (work in progress) valentine treat. 
I have been listening to a lot of Ella Fitzgerald over the past few years and have only recently thought about creating art work for it. This one will change a bit as some of the words need to be re-positioned and might play around with colour a bit. Lots more to come. 
Happy Saturday

Lotions and Potions!

  
 
  


 Shop window display number two. Created with old pharmacy bottles found in the sister chemist shop's attic. I spent a whole day cleaning off the bottles and the lovely old wooden cabinet. They are all original bottles some with the medicine still inside! 
For the other bottles and jars I filled with food colouring and water, some with salt and a few with mint imperials to look like tablets. 
I needed to leave room on either side for other decorations like Christmas trees as they didn't want to keep taking things in and out. 
Its not completely finished yet but I'm pleased with how it is now and as it changes I will post photos. It was a completely bare window before and the amount of people that have stopped and really looked at the things in the window and come in and say that they like it makes my day : )
