Illustration for Frankie magazine: my bedside table

I was chuffed to be asked to contribute an illustration to Frankie magazine for an article about bedside tables.  Five illustrators were asked to draw a picture of their own table, and answer a few questions.  I was very honoured to be included among Anna Blandford, Dawn Tan, Caitlin Shearer and the marvellous Aiko Fukawa.  Warning: my written response is a bit gross.  You will have to read the article to find out why.
The artwork is acrylic on wood, which is becoming my go-to medium.  (Partly because you can layer the acrylic on wood in ways that you could never do on paper, meaning that you can fix mistakes more easily.  I also like the warmth and texture that it adds to the work.  And, of course, you can cut it into funny shapes.....)

Ooh I want to read that A.M. Homes book. I heard her Sydney Writers Festival talk broadcast on radio national. Bedside tables would be a good blog/tumbler! Right now mine has a pile of book, a plastic brain, a pair of ear rings and a bobby pin or two!

Yes I heard Homes on RN and that made me want to read the book too! It's so densely packed and un-put-down-able.
A plastic brain on your bedside table.....I love that.....I hope to see it on your blog one day!!!

Thanks as always young lady.
