John Crane

I have some really exciting news! For a few months now I've had the privilege of working with wooden toy company John Crane to develop their Tidlo range. I'm working closely with their toy/product designer to create decorations & a range of characters for their new products. I'm super excited about it as there is something really special about seeing your products in 3D!!! Plus I have a thing about wooden toys- LOVE them! I buy them new & old- from shops, car boots & charity shops whenever I can for Evie, so for me to be able to see my designs on wood is amazing. The pictures above were taken at the annual trade Toy Fair in London which I visited last month to do a press release with John Crane. We had 50 limited edition panda prints to give away and some were given away via the internet to people in return for reviewing my artwork. The reviews have been so lovely they have really made my day. Thank you to everyone who took the time to write about my artwork- I've pretty much had a permanent smile on my face ever since reading them :) Hopefully I'll have my first Tidlo toy to show you soon!

You can visit John Cranes website here & they are also on Twitter & Facebook.

Have great weekend everyone!
