Here's a little step-by-step of a batch of t shirts I recently designed and screen printed for Mike of Survivor Customs hot rods. I do enjoy drawing a logo!

Kendal Calling festival alongside Rowan of Kitschensink Jewellery and Becky of Reetsweet. Selling at a festival for the first time it was fun but also a lot of hard work! Thankfully we had a lot of sunshine (let's forget about the rain!), good food and lots of friendly festival goers to chat to. More festivals for Memo? Yes! Let's see what 2013 brings...

Flamingo' and 'Cocktail', both available individually from my Etsy shop, and as part of a 'Tropical Kitsch Trio' with my 'Parrot' card design. Its a bit of a tongue twister but catchy all the same!
Today its lovely and sunny in Leeds. This is the first time I've said good things about the weather in what feels like weeks. These new card designs are inspired by the summer and sun and contents of my 1960s boat bar. My ongoing collection of kitsch cocktail memorabilia is forever increasing in size... Later this week I'll have a new limited edition screen print to unveil also inspired by the collection. I'll say bye for now, I'm off to enjoy a Tom Collins while its sunny!

Katie Haegele asked me to illustrate the cover of a book she was writing... well here is the finished product! Published by the awesome Microcosm Publishing in Portland Oregon 'White Elephants' is about yard sales that Katie visited with her Mum and good things they came across, alongside matters of life including the odd bit of romance. Katie and I both share a passion for secondhand treasure, namely the finding of the treasure. In fact I think that's how our friendship began actually.
