Hello all my wonderful friends and bloggers!

I'm so happy to announce that my Hansel & Gretel illustration came 3rd in the 3rd Epicase Competition! My heartfelt congrats to the winner from Russia, indeed an amazing and complicated work-well done! I would be lying if I said I wasn't hoping to win (I believe we all did who entered top 10) which is natural and good, but I'm not dissapointed at all. Very, very happy 'cos my illustration has now become a part of their retail art collection and you'll be able to purchase their products with my illo on it! How awesome and cool is that?! :)
When I reflect on how I've entered and expected really nothing out of it, and then to enter top 10 out of 1,214 works from all over the world, and now my work came 3rd-yeyieeee!!! Is all I can say and shout :)
Thank you all again for your precious votes and cheereing me on-truly means the world to me!

I'm sending you all warm hugs and kisses!

Epicase competition results! :)

I have received such uplifting and amazing news today. I have entered a competition by Epicase a couple of months back with one of my illo's, after my dear friend Ni suggested I should try and enter. Today I got an email saying that amongst 1,214 works from all over the world mine entered the top 10-WOW!!!! :) Woooooohooooooooo! Can you tell how excited I am?! So the facebook fan poll starts today and I will shamefully ask for all of you my dear friends to help me out and vote for my illustration on their fan poll wall. The voting starts from 5pm and will last for a couple of days I think, till the 28th. Multiple choices are allowed as well. I'm not sure yet how many times you get to vote, I asked them this question so will let you know. 

I would love to at least enter the top 5 since my work would enter their collection then and would sell in their stores! :) Pls don't forget to pop over to their fb page HERE and vote!!!!

Thank you all and wish me good luck! :)

Something tad different :)

Hello to all my blog friends and followers, it's been ages I know :)
Well for those of you who don't know yet I have had a very good reason for 'hiding' away :) Lol
I'm so proud and joyful to announce that in April 2013 I'll be a mommy for the 2nd time! Wooohoo! :)
And normally that alone wouldn't be a reason for not posting or working on my illustrations lately, but unfortunately my 1st trimester wasn't a glorious one, since I had early pergnancy complications and was bedbound for a month, wasn't allowed to to anything, and I really do mean anything! I'm still on some sort of therapy and still have to take plenty of rest but I don't have to lay in bed anymore and boy were those news awesome for me!

My sweet peanut is doing very well the Doc said so I'm just grateful and thankful to Him who's looking after both of us :) And to celebrate my recovery and the fact I'm able to sit and walk more I was working on a new personal illustration yesterday and am sharing it with you here today. It is inspired by my very brave and amazing friend Victoria and her funny story about a lizzard who's living in her guitar :) We might turn this one into a real proper story for kids, I think it would be swell :)

Hope you're all doing fine and I'm sending you all warm hugs!
