Spotting monster feetWhilst walking in the DEER LITTLE FOREST today we stumbled upon some green, fury, monster feet! Don’t you just love spotting magical things in the trees 🙂

Happy Halloween!

We’re having a very happy Halloween here in the DEER LITTLE FOREST!

Taking time away from sketching in the studio, the DLF folk set off for the woods in search of fun and magic! We found friendly, talking trees and skeletons made from leaves and twigs. We warmed ourselves drinking yummy hot chocolate and had a jolly old time toasting marshmallows round the camp fire. It’s been a wonderful time, relishing nature, Autumn and friends!

Happy Halloween everyone! X

Gorgeous Karto Cards From Finland!

I received a wonderful package from Finland today containing samples of our lovely cards now selling through Karto in Finland. We just love the font they’ve used, isn’t it super cute!

Karto produce a gorgeous range of postcards, greeting cards, gift wrap, as well as interior and tabletop products. We are delighted to see our range of DEER LITTLE FOREST designs sitting well alongside our favourite MOOMINS brand. Exciting!

Rowan the Fox Loves Autumn Time!

 

The days following our second BLE show have quite simply flown by! It was a fantastic show for the DEER LITTLE FOREST and we’ve been really busy here with interesting follow-ups and exciting plans! (updates coming soon 😉

With the first book in the DLF series complete, I am all set to forge ahead with the second. Last week I tidied the studio and re-stocked with paper and pencils, this week I’m searching for inspiration. I’m loving the feast of Autumnal colours and textures available this time of year and find my regular forests walks the most inspiring. I find everything about this time of year seems to evoke the ethos of the hand-crafted DEER LITTLE FOREST, from cosy knits, warm rustic fires and yummy, home-made, veggie stews.

The pumpkins are ready to be carved and lovely, leaf collages have been made by Loki for the studio. I even think Rowan the Fox is loving the Autumn season too!

Latest news from the Deer Little Forest

Hello!

It’s all been a bit quiet here in the DLF blog………but It’s been the busiest time ever in my studio! I’ve almost finished the first book in the DEER LITTLE FOREST SERIES, yay!  It’s been a mammoth task to say the least! Half way through I decided to make changes to Forest Flo and so I had to start all over. Then I decided that I wanted to change how I was creating the illustrations, so this meant yet another change. well I guess it’s never worth doing anything unless you do it right and I wanted to make sure the first book looks really special 🙂

Phew! It was worth it though, as I am soooo happy with how the book is looking and soooooo excited to get it printed in time for the BLE licensing show in October.  Here’s the new Forest Flo with the rest of the woodland gang!

DEER LITTLE FOREST

Along with illustrating the first book, we’ve been busy signing a host of new deals aimed at supporting ecologically oriented charities. DEER LITTLE FOREST has joined Digital Giving’s T-Shirt Booth in support of The Woodland Trust and Timbergram for a range of greeting cards to champion Tree Aid.

Also, I can’t tell you excited I was to receive these examples of  my cards which are due to sell through Karto in Finland! How totally cute! The Forest Folk love them!
