As you know, I love a good wander round Blog Land.
So much lovely stuff out there. Things to explore, things to try out, things to admire and things to just gawp at.
One blog I follow is Purple Podded Peas - the blog by Celia Hart who is an illustrator and print maker.
To be honest with you, I am not sure how I found Celia, but I like her style very much. To me it has that 'mid century' feel to it. I am not sure where she studied or who her influences are, but she lives in rural suffolk and grows purple podded peas and other unusual things in her vegetable patch.
Recently she had a commission to do an illustration for an article in a magazine - in fact I believe it is a column in the magazine and she will be providing a regular illustration.
She very kindly and generously shared the process of ideas, through the sketchbook development to the final print here. Go and have a little look. Worth a read, I think.
And she has a little on line shop too. You can buy cards and fabric. How lovely is that!
