Or at least that's what it feels like at the moment with these new giclee prints. It's like I've overdosed on tea (preferably earl grey) and it's done something to the creative part of my brain. Anyway, I've put a paler version (more retro green-blues) in the shop and am toying with putting this much brighter one in soon. I like the desert feel of the orange and vivid blues. It seems to echo images of our current Australian drought. The funny thing is it finally rained in Melbourne last night and is threatening to hail as I write this.

The kimono fabric comes from Kyoto and here are some of my favourites:
They'll be available along with a range of my hand printed woodblock cards in Readings, Carlton late next week. That's in Melbourne in case you were wondering.....

And thanks to the lovely SJ I have a computer to use for a few weeks :)))))
Sweet Amy from Moyou has tagged me. I've been tagged before so I won't go tagging anyone else. Here's my tag info:
four places I have lived: Kyoto, Perth, Sydney, Mackay (not in that order)
four movies I can watch over and over: this is a hard one as I don't usually watch movies more than once.
four places I have been on holiday: Cambodia, Spain, New Mexico, Vietnam.
four websites I visit daily: recently I've been reading: design for mankind (love, love, love this blog); decor 8; creative thursday; all things considered
four favourite ways to spend a sunday: cooking and eating pancakes for breakfast with friends at my place; bike riding along the Yarra River; picnicing in a lovely park; reading a good book in bed.
four places I would rather be now: I'm ok about being here (Melbourne) right now but other places it would be fun to be are: Kyoto (I miss my second home); New York (going soon :); camping in the Alpine National Park (Victoria).

Thanks to all those lovely people who've sent me messages of support. It's really nice to be reminded that people are mostly good, and that the ones who did this have bigger problems in their lives than I can ever probably imagine.

Any feedback on this little piece is welcome. And if you like this little one, I've just put it in the shop.

And then I stumbled upon some beauty (via bloesem) from round robin press:
I'm a sucker for beautiful, arty cards like this from Shannon Lowry in Austin, Texas. It sure beats a lot of the tacky mass produced stuff I see for sale in newsagents in Australia.
More joy on the card front (I have a lot of friends with birthdays coming up so I'm a bit stuck on the card thing at the moment) from sea spray blue adapted from her range of larger sized prints.
