Anna over at Colour & Sound has just started her Illustration degree. It's making me very envious, all the experimenting she is doing...it makes me want to go back to school. And she's especially lucky because Martin Salisbury who put together this book...

I wanted to give an un-art related shout-out to my friend Zoe at Bake-a-Boo who made my little boy's delicious cupcakes for his birthday. If you are anywhere near West Hampstead, check out her gorgeous cake emporium and cafe.
Thank you Zoe. x
