Giving old books a new jacket does count as a random act of kindness. First one is The Pearl, by John Steinbeck.

February 12, 2017

Raise your glasses! A beautiful, fun, seriously hot illustrated guide about rosé wine – written by Katherine Cole and exquisitely designed by Sebit Min 😉 

A journey from the best known vineyards in the south of France to Italy, Portugal, Spain, California, Chile or Australia (to name just a few). A true pleasure to illustrate – enjoy it chilled, sip by sip!

Looking forward 2017

January 18, 2017

Hope you’ve all had an alright Christmas and a very Blue Monday – having gone past that, I can only wish for lots of Wonderful Wednesdays this new year. Here’s a gold foil mermaid I’ve made and framed some erm months ago (She’s looking into the future, and she’ll soon be available on my Etsy page – watch this little corner space!)
