Rwanda Wonder

I was in Rwanda in August with a precious friend. I sometimes (often) think she must be the very best girl in the world.

Rwandans make it irresistibly easy to drop your guard and so we did and our trip was glorious, safe in the hands of strangers and their densely inhabited land of the Congo-Nile divide.

Above is a detail from an illustration I did about our trip.

Richard Parker Dear Rae ring

What are the nicest things to draw? Animals, without a doubt. This collaboration with Dear Rae Jewellery made me super happy. Karin designed these charming animal rings inspired by The Life of Pi and asked me to dream up a matching series of limited prints of Richard Parker, a bird and a fish.  What animal are you? I thought I might be a tiger, turns out I’m a fish. Follow this link to shop.

I hand-tinted each print with gold ink: the nose on RP, flying-fins on the fish and wings on the goose. 

(the first twenty purchases of these rings in either gold or silver come with one of my limited prints)
