Approximately 3 years and 100 illustrations in the process, I have finally finished my Inky Wildflower alphabet! Celebrating British wildflowers with my usual bamboo dip pen and ink, each print features calm typography with dainty floral hand-drawn illustrations matched to the letter and the option to add botanical information so you can tell your Hawthorns from your Hellebores.
Now that the whole alphabet is complete, I can also offer my personalised name prints in this design, perfect for a new baby, to thank a flower girl or for anyone who loves botanical beauty. I'd love to hear what you think and if there's any products that you'd like your floral name or initials to adorn!
A labour of love
I've been tinkering with this project on and off for the last few months, as much for my own enjoyment as anything, working on each tiny illustration using my usual method of pen and ink using my hand carved bamboo pens. From Anteater to Zebra via Hammerhead Shark, Narwhal, Flamingo and Sloth! Reproduced on luxurious archival watercolour paper, this art print will hopefully stir up imagination and curiosity, help learning and be a thoughtful finishing touch to a little ones nursery. Find your own here.

Bespoke baby print
Seems like the post yesterday has prompted a flurry of customer pics! I really love this one of a bespoke print I created for someone's very first nursery. Isn't it such a beautiful space? Congratulations!

Autumn Screen Printing Workshop
I enjoyed working with a lovely group of ladies on Saturday, teaching my simple screen printing method, and was very impressed with their beautiful results! Seems as though they enjoyed it too.

Bumbilee Business Cards
Following from some lovely logo design, I've been commissioned to design some stationery for Children's online shop Bumbilee. First on the menu, lovely heavyweight business cards.
First, riff through ideas, develop then produce!
Latest Lovely Logos
A new children's shop came to me for a logo for their flourishing company. They wanted "it to stand out, a Katemoby origin-nally!" I happily obliged, with the usual process of creating a range of ideas, and then homing in on the favourite. It was great to have some graphics to get stuck into!
Homing in on the best solution...
And the final... Drumroll please!
Last minute Christmas presents
I'm staring down Christmas like a head on collision, but have still managed to sneak some hand made products in there for a couple of First Christmas presents for some tiny people I know. No better time for some personalised zebras printed in Midnight Blue I thought!
Are Zebras just for Christmas, or should I add them to the repertoire?
