Merry Christmas Everyone

Enjoy the super happy winter wonderland in this wallpaper which you can get here right now.

TOP FACT: Penguins are the best animal at decorating Christmas trees!

Ginger bread men don't actually eat candy canes, they use them as fashion accessories to stand out in the crowd. This years colour is pink, lucky!

Off Topic: Totoro cakes

I love Totoro, he might just be the most awesome creature on the planet (Fact!). My sister agrees so I made her this Totoro cake for her birthday one year.

Another year I made these tasty little cakes.

And once I made these (slightly scared looking) biscuits ALL for my self, Yum Yum!

Oh gone on then, I'll let you have one...

Snow monster march

The lovable snow monsters take a little wintry stroll.

Snow monsters march

It's getting a little nippy here now so am a little jealous of these little guys and their full body of fur.

Snow monster

Howdy! How are you today?

Spike the snow monster

This lovable snow monster doesn't say that much, but the little he does will always be cheery.

Happy Halloween!

Watch out for monsters hiding in the night!

Happy Halloween!

And if you do run across any, just hide behind the nearest (friendly) giant pumpkin :)

Peas in a pod

Please don't eat these little peas!

Peas in a pod

These are my take on the incredibly cute 'Peas in a pod' characters from Toy Story 3, created for the awesome Pixar times blog, definitely a great place for all things Pixar, PLUS if you click here you can see lots of amazing Pixar illustrations, go check it out!

King Caterpillar

This particular caterpillar isn't actually a real king (I know! Pretty shocking!)

King Caterpillar

But whatever you do DON'T tell him that, other than it upsetting him, if he isn't king, who is going to make awesome royal decrees like 'one must have jelly and custard after every meal including breakfast'?!

Take a relaxing swim

This little sea worm has on occasion been confused with the lock ness monster, but striving for his own individual style he finds this most fustrating! So now (when on holiday in Scotland) he can offen be seen wearing a "I'm NOT the lock ness monster!" tshirt to clear any sort of confusion up. That's using the old noggin.

Sea Worm

Here it looks like he's thinking of the tasty sardine stirfry he just had for lunch.

Origami Flight

Grab some paper, fold yourself a plane and take flight!
If you like this image a wallpaper version is availble here.

Origami Flight

Of course your going to need a massive piece of paper unless your the size of a small mouse, in which case any piece of paper will do. (Damn those lucky mice, getting all the breaks.)

Origami Flight (Close up)

Of course don't forget your passport if you plan on flying far away, and if it's a really long journey it's best to pack a little snack. I'm going to take some jelly in the shape of a hedgehog with me (it's much tastier that way).

Ice Cool Girl Portrait

It was nice to experiment for a few weeks and out of the few posted I posted here I think this was my favourite one. Next time I might try to work on drawing a whole figure, hopefully it will be fun.

Ninja Drops

The Ninja Drops attack, HI YAH!

The super steathly Ninja Drops pack a powerful punch, CHOP CHOP!
They could actually be a little bit more steathly if it wasn't for their love of brightly coloured ninja shorts, but sometimes it's nice to look nice when saving the world.

P.S. Is that how you spell HI YAH?

So I had to start asking my sister for makeup advice... hey I don't know what colour eye shadow works with brown eyes! :)

Curly Forest

Now you too can catch fireflies in the curly forest. Like this? Then grab the wallpaper version at!

I know those fireflies look fun, but my advice is to STAY AWAY! They have a secret plan to pinchy pinch the little guys sweets (oooh no!!!) but how I hear you ask? Lets take a closer look...

Working in teams they perform complex dancing maneuvers (they call this dance the 'sneak sweet peak') which both dazzles and amazes the forest cuties, then yonk! sweeties pinched! You have been warned!

Happy Cake shop

Tasty treats sit in the sun, celebrating the start of spring.

The penguin in the background LOVES cake! (Fear not, he loves to be friends with NOT eat) Sadly he has been bansihed to the window ledge for licking the icing and sniffing the jam, how very naughty.

Monsieur cake is only made out of the finest ingredients don't you know? what what. In his spare time he likes to solve murder mysteries and fight pesky bad guys. But the real mystery of what he keeps under his hat is ONLY known to him...

Rabbit ice cream!

Rabbit and bear ice cream, yum!

It's not quite 'owl ice cream' but i'm sure it's still super tasty.

Sweet Clouds

Party time up in the clouds, sweets all round!

These special sweets (a favourite of the fluffy clouds) are grown on vines up in the sky. They can grow to the size of a mellon, but no one has ever seen one this big...

...they are sooooo tasty, everyone eats them as soon as they start to grow!
