After getting busy with lino cutting labels for my Hardcore Kakor cookie stall, I played around and printed some cards. You can find this printed goodness over on my Etsy Store.
Hand coloured sparkles
Nice, Nice, Nice
A little hot pink action
Bearded baker says, ‘Hej!’
Riding off the inspiration of Pictoplasma I decided to draw ‘n’ bake my way into the A La London Design Market in Gothenburg this past May.
Drawing and baking cookies = my kind of awesomeness.
And it was the perfect opportunity to having fun with my bearded baker character.
Wanting to create my own lables, lino printing seemed to be an ace solution!
Paper sculpture prep!
Bags ready for a little goodness

Badass Banana cakes!
After such an intense, creative, super fun week in Berlin at Pictoplasma’s 10th Birthday Festival and Conference (the highlight being reunited with my Pictoplasma Academy friends for our group show) all I want to do is make more stuff. Good result.
Hence the delay in posting about the event… so here’s a little pictorial account of my time.

P.S Since the Group Show we’ve started a little side project, The Eggplant Collective
to keep us connected, creative and sharing ideas.
P.P.S Thanks to the super talented Swantje Wenz who gave me some of her photos of my piece Adventure Girl. Check out her animated short, There are no Kittens in Paradise, she screened at the show.
P.P.P.S. I did not take enough pics of the group show and everyone’s awesome work so, visit here to see who participated, then go here to check out more happenings at the festival.
It’s been 6 months or so since my last post, so much awesome stuff has happened, which mainly has been Instagramed over here. Anyway it has cumulated in moving from London to Sweden, participating in the first Pictoplasma Academy and now, in a few hours, heading to Berlin to Participate in the 10th Pictoplasma Festival as part of the Academy All Stars exhibition.
Here’s a little sneak peak of the project… stay tuned for more!
