I found this peaceful cafe just off one of the main bustling, touristy pedestrian streets. I had a clementine sorbet and espresso and sat for a long time in the cool, dark interior drawing up ideas in my sketchbook. A perfect afternoon!

I was in Mallorca a few weeks ago for a printmaking course - I'm planning to post examples of work etc relating to the workshop soon - but here are some photos of things that caught my eye in Palma.

This was for the August issue of Family Circle. It was to illustrate the signs to look for when someone might be having a stroke. The challenge was to fit all the information into a 3inch by 2.5 inch area...but I like challenges...well ones like these!

I've just found these images on Amazon. It's a mini book of inspirational quotes for Peter Pauper Press which I illustrated last winter.
I can remember the story I was listening to on the radio while I was working on the image above. It was about a man who had left Sweden as a child with his family for Australia and when he returned fifty or so years later - he stayed and married his childhood sweetheart.
