This sweet little sight tickled my fancy today; a cardboard box under my desk containing all the prototype animals that I have made in the quest for the perfect shape/colour combination. I am pleased to say that the finalized chicks and rabbits have made it up onto http://www.mibostudio.co.uk/ now, so hopefully they will soon be popping up in homes across the globe.

Here is a sneak peek at the new collection of the mibostudio spring animals. First up is 'The Yolk Folk' consisting of (from L to R) Cluck Gable, Eggory Peck and Sophia Le Hen. Will take photos of the Rabbit Set tomorrow. They'll be appearing on the mibostudio website at the weekend.

I recently really enjoyed printing some lengths of this "Saltdean" fabric to be made up into supersized lampshades (available at www.mibo.co.uk). This printing is all done at a studio I share with a bunch of Brighton creatives (see studio mate of the week #1 below) It's so nice to step away from the computer, turn the phone off and just lose oneself in the steady, methodical process that is screen-printing.

This week's studio mate of the week is Lee Baker. He's a music producer by day and an irritatingly talented artist by night. Though I think the art thing is creeping into the day a bit - judging by the fact that its 2.30pm and he's quite clearly painting. You can see more of his work at www.leebakerart.com

Now I have to admit that, being a little bit long in the tooth, Valentine's day has been slightly off my radar of late, but remembering the frisson of finding an unexpected card or gift on the morning of the 14th Feb led me to invent Valentiny; a tiny owl grapsing an even tinier envelope in his beak. So why not sneak him onto the doorstep or desk of that someone who takes your fancy. I've just posted the DIY kit on www.mibostudio.co.uk. It's just £2.00 ($3.25) for the pdf kit and it will take you about 15mins to make the owl & card and then another 10 mins if you want to make a cute little presentation box, also included in the kit.
