In the studio today



 It was particularly freezing in the studio today.  I took out my copy of Daniel Clowe's Ghost World because bright colours help me to pretend it's warmer in there.  Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware are my favourite contemporary comic book creators.  GENIUSES, just quietly!
 Mirrors in progress.  They are very hard to photograph, as you can see above.  The fez mirror sits over a beautiful 1950s botanical calendar from Kaffe Fassett's Glorious Inspiration.


 Templates for wooden people and other creatures.  You can't put wood under a light box, so I cut around my sketches instead, trace the outlines and then hope for the best.
 These days my studio has a glass window which looks into the hallway, giving a fishbowl effect. However it also gives me a ledge to put things I like on, like this Mona Lisa and a flyer from a Fergus Binns exhibition, because I can't afford the real thing...

I have also been making some wooden people for Hut 13, greetings cards and linen scarves for Craft Victoria, but my photos of them were dark and horrible so they haven't made it here.

What Kate did next ... said...

Thank you Sandra! I love getting a peek into your working day and where you spend your busy hours (though it looks more like play than work sometimes, which is the way it should be)

Hi Kate! I'm glad that you got something out of it... really I just put those photos up because the photos of the other work that I was doing weren't very good!

I'd love to see a picture of you curled up with your laptop in that beautiful window seat in the corner.... :)
