S:  A bubble blowing elephant, fruit loops and lions hugging zebras – where does your inspiration come from? B:  For me, there isn’t a place or book that’s a wellspring of ideas, so I keep a sketchbook on me all the time and make messy drawings. Sometimes an idea pops up in front of me, […]

Indulgence – Mum’s Raspberry Jam Slice

Tue, 12 May 2015 21:24:07 +0000

I believe it was Mary Poppins who first sung of the healing powers of a Spoonful of sugar, and who are we to argue? This delicious treat my friends is certainly no exception. Growing up with two working parents I’m amazed that my Mum ever had time to make sweets for us but without fail […]

Musical Interlude: Stornoway’s “Zorbing”

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 04:38:40 +0000

This song has been stuck in my head for the past two weeks, and I’ll tell you, it’s completely pleasant. “Zorbing” (by Stornoway, a band I’ve only recently become acquainted with) is ridiculously charming and cheerful. It’s a playful little earworm–I think you two will get along just fine. FYI: This is what Zorbing is. […]
