I realise that it’s been a long time since I’ve shared some updates about new projects that I’m working on at the moment. There has been a lot happening behind the scenes, and you are probably wondering what’s next… So without further ado, allow me to share some studio news for April 2019 with you!
My biggest news is that there is another book on the way! I’ve been working on the new book – or rather the main character in the book – for a while now. I’ve decided to make a fully articulated meerkat, which I will be able to photograph in a multitude of poses to tell the new story.
At this point, I’ve created a pattern and prototype of the meerkat. I’ve also created illustrations that will be printed on fabric, and from which I will be making the final meerkat. The illustrations have just gone to print, and I am super excited for the printed fabric to arrive so that I can make my new character in 3 dimensions!
I’ve also decided to create a darker version of fairy Daisy for this story, and these illustrations have also gone off to the printers, so fingers crossed that they both turn out as I’ve envisioned them!
I’ve had some fun days as well as work days – James and I celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary on the 2nd of April with a visit to Kalk Bay, Simonstown and Cape Town.
