New silkscreen printed tea towels!

I have finally got round to adding a new product to my shop! I am so please with how well this silkscreen print came out, I have already given half of them away to friends, really got to stop doing that. I created this design for my brothers restaurant for his menu covers and thought it would work perfectly on a tea towel.      I thought I'd give you all a little treat with an Autumn sale in my Etsy shop. Just use the code  Autumnsale2014 at the check out to receive a wopping  35% off!      https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/sarahdennis86

Animals Camouflage

Oh my goodness September was a busy month! I really have a lot to fill you in on. 

This has been one of my favourite pieces to work on lately, Bsmall publishing and I are working on a an idea for a new search and find book where kids get to spot all the animals in a detailed paper-cut illustration.

I did this piece all by hand, the level of detail really got quite intense , I loved doing it and really hope that this sample artwork goes down well at Frankfurt book fair. 

Let me know if you can spot all the African animals!

Bespoke paper art for two love birds!

It was so much fun making this piece of artwork for two love birds who enjoy exploring the ocean. This thoughtful gift was commissioned by a loving friend. I was so touched to hear she adores my artwork and wanted to create a bespoke piece of art to say a special thank you to two close friends.

My workshop at the folk house

 I had such a great time teaching my paper cutting workshop as part of a summer school event at the Folk house. This was the first time teaching at the folk house and I have to say I loved it, the whole place has a retro art school vibe and the cafe does a great coffee.

All the students really loved the craft, its just so great seeing people getting as excited about paper as I do. 

Little miss muffet sat on her tuffet...

Little miss muffet sat on her tuffet, eating her curds and whey; along came a spider playing his saxophone and scared miss muffet away. Don't blame her, she must have a spider phobia like me! 

I normally have real trouble drawing spiders, but this guy no problem. I think its because he's playing the sax, I think if all spiders had a saxophone I wouldn't be so scared.

This Paper illustration was commissioned for Juice music, the CD cover to a collection of alternative rhymes. The client was so happy with it they decided to buy the original as a leaving present for a retiring colleague.

last night I did the second part of my papercutting class at the heart space studios. In this class we explored colour, creating shadows and layers with the paper. I love showing people the endless possibilities of this medium, I was really pleased with every one's achievements.  I'm now looking forward to the next class which will be at the  Folk house  on the 4th of August.
