I’ve recently been lucky enough to acquire an Inkling, a magical new pen made by Wacom. It’s like a graphics tablet, but without the tablet. (What witchcraft is this?!). You clip the receiver to any piece of paper and use the pen to draw. When you’re ready you connect the receiver to your computer and download your sketches as bitmaps

Triangle Club (rockin’the hypotenuse) is one of my most popular drawings – so many good things come in triangular form. I’ve updated Triangle Club for 2012 so now it’s exclusively food items. The set square and warning sign were only honorary members anyway, and now they’ve been kicked out to make way for Pizza Slice and Miss Victoria Sponge. (Can’t

This is why I stick to veggie burgers. This scary burger had been living in my sketchbook for a while, until I drew him in ink and watercolour for a birthday card a while ago. Originally it was a hand drawing for a birthday card, with Happy Birthday in ketchup. And now he’s finished on the computer in vector form.

So this weekend I finally did some drawing for fun again – it’s been a while as I’ve been so busy with the new t-shirt design and sorting out stuff for Hyper Japan (panic buying stickers, new t-shirt tags, trying to find non-extortionate parking in London – turns out that’s not possible). I’d been meaning to do some comic strips

All the Best Stuff is from Japan T-Shirt At last I can show you my new t-shirt design! It’s all about my favourite things from Japan – there are so many of them, and I fitted as many on the t-shirt as I could: sushi, vending machines, the bullet train, robots, bonsai, ninjas, ramen, origami, godzilla… It’s a full colour

We had a fantastic time last weekend at MCM Expo at ExCel London – Cakes with Faces’ first con! It was an exhausting weekend, with a lot of late nights getting ready (never before have I found myself ironing t-shirts at 1am) and early mornings, but it was a lot of fun.
