I've recently moved to wordpress... please visit me now at www.galahouse.com/blog. x

Farewell Blogger, Hello Wordpress!

The time has come to move on... it's taken a little longer than expected but you can find my new blog at my brand spanking new website www.galahouse.com/blog! If you've joined this blog with Google Friend Connect don't worry - you'll find yourself magically hanging out over at the new digs. No need to update anything if you've subscribed to the feed either, it's all taken care of for you!

Hopefully this will mean a little more time for drawing and keeping you updated since everything's in one cosy little spot. (That's the plan anyway)

Hope you can make a visit over there, there's even some new work waiting... wink wink. x

Illustrators Australia for Japan Auction

I've donated 3 of my prints to the Illustrators Australia Online Auction for Japan. 100% of proceeds are being donated to Red Cross Australia's Japan and Pacific Disaster Appeal 2011.

Feel free to browse the gallery and pick up some great art you can feel good about! To make a bid click the link to the eBay listing. x

What Else I've Been Working On...

This is the 'hero shot' for Envision Optical, a new independent optometrist on the Gold Coast. 

My husband happens to be the owner/managing director/optometrist for Envision which happened to make me the creative director. We've been working on Envision stuff like crazy people since mid last year (which feels like forever!) but I think we're finally starting to bring it all together.

I've created the brand from scratch, including everything from the logo to business cards, flyers, posters, artwork for the stores, other graphics, a website, and even re-decorated a couple of the stores - which involved a fair bit of painting, furniture renos, and re-upholstering - got to love a staple gun! Busy, busy, busy.

I'm posting a weird eye fact each week on our blog and facebook page so if you want to impress your friends with some trivia check it out! x

My Second Baby Bump!

Just a little something I've been working on for the last 6 months!

We're all pretty excited here to be expecting a little brother for Roman. There's a fair bit of kicking and wriggling going on (from both the bump and Roman) which is why I've been a bit light on the posts for the last little while. Feeling pretty good at the moment though - I guess this is the easy part. : )

I'll be moving this little blog of mine in the next week or so. I'm going for the whole blog/website-in-one vibe, I'm hoping it will be less upkeep for me which (hopefully) will mean more time for illustrating. Will keep you posted on the move! x

What I Wore Today

Found the cutest blog called What I Wore Today and was inspired by the exhausting heat here at the moment to submit this piece. A bikini and a sarong is about all I can bear at the moment. I love you Summer but I won't be complaining when Autumn arrives. x
