Just recieved a stack of 10 fingers zines from memo helen. The zines are all screenprinted and stitched by hand and every page is also a postcard you can send to your friends. Each of the artists (Gemma Correll, Jen Collins, Anthony Zinonos, Will Bryant, Mia Christopher, Memo Helen, Jay Cover) created an illustration based on a childhood memory. Me and Jen both had imaginary animals...mine a horse called Mr Polo and Jen a pack of hounds!

I was so happy to be included in issue 8 of Uppercase Magazine. They asked for modern versions of the classic matchbox label sets. I decided to delve into my vintage 'Tales from Russia' book (where I discovered the tale of The Firebird) and I did a series of cards based on the stories inside.

I knew when I saw a red envelope waiting for me by the door that I was in for a treat....and boy was I right! The super ace Thereza Rowe had sent me a little present...one of her Magic Bottles books! Tonics to give you Wit and Wisdom, Time and Balance, Confidence and Inspiration and of course Wonder. I shall be putting these magic bottles in my pocket along with my hip flask. You can buy your very own copy here. (But I have number 1 of 100!)

Ribbons and braids are pretty handy things...you never know when you might have to tie a robber up...... Fortunately I have a magic box of ribbons that I keep under my bed and when I was in London I visited The Cloth House and got myself some new supplies.
