shiny teeth and too much surfing

And yet again I've left it for weeks / months since my last blog post - can I use the excuse of being too busy to remember? It's actually the truth, although not all of it involved work (recent tropical sunshine weather and continuous fun little waves equal much time spent outdoors and in the sea). But the work front has been equally fun recently - projects just completed/on the go/in progression include various custom orders, a cafe wall mural, a homewares piece for Marks&Spencer, a couple of interviews and an artist event with footwear company Vans (another blog post to come on this v soon but I've had a lot of fun creating designs on a mysterious bag of single shoes which arrived in the post a couple of weeks ago).
Yesterday was interesting for a number of reasons but mostly for turning up to the post office to buy a paper and not being able to look at it for 5 minutes because my face was peering back at me - strange but true and unlikely to ever happen again, but the Western Morning News had kindly approached me for an interview & somehow I ended up on the front cover of West, the Sunday supplement magazine...I have professional photographer Mike Alsford to thank for my gleaming teeth & nice skin (thanks Mike!)
