Please swing by my Etsy shop if you're even casually interested in the idea of purchasing an art-print-esque gift for a friend (or, indeed, yourself), or if the smattering of greetings cards images on this site have piqued your interest - Etsy is a wondrous place, and I won't mind one bit if you stray towards any of the other shiny virtual shop fronts, veritably coruscating as they are with beautiful and unique articles hand-crafted by the global creative community.

Many more to come - not least among these a clutch of really quite excellent bloggers and artists whom I've had the absolute joy to stumble across since participating in the weekly global creative challenge, Illustration Friday - but, for now, few other links that might be of interest:

The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators

The Association of Illustrators - resources, events, news about the industry:

A FANTASTIC gallery off Piccadilly, Central London, specializing in both eminent and emerging  talent in the field of illustration - worth checking out their impressive programme of events, which includes the occasional workshop

And a smattering of my favourite blogs: - amazing creatures conjured from Copic Marker-work - fiendishly clever rhymes from a linguistic wizard(ess) - inky brilliance, wit and humour every day from Gabriel Alborozo! - hilarious, irrepressibly fun illustrations from an award-winning Bright artist
