Never Never Creek

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

A little while back the kind folk at Lalaland asked me to create a new design for them. So I came up with this sleepy platypus design, titled “Never Never Creek”. Now available as a print from Lalaland.

Once again I converted the design into something bed-worthy!

Ekko

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Ekko is an eastern rosella who lives with his human companion in Western Australia. Eastern rosella’s are common in my neighbourhood, but they aren’t usually found in WA. So when they asked me to paint a portrait of Ekko, I was thrilled!

This is one of the largest sized commissions I’ve done, and I had so much fun squeezing loads of detail in all that extra space! Ekko is perched on outlines of actual leaves from trees where eastern rosellas hang out in my garden, on a stormy coloured egg-shaped background, nestled amongst his favourite blossom-foods.

It is now also available as a lovely big greeting card at Lalaland!

Eucalyptus, by flossy-p

A little while back I was invited by Spoonful Zine to create a flower; a eucalyptus, with its Victorian meaning of “protection”, to be included in Issue 8 alongside flowers created by other artists.

An oversized bloom, with a protective knitted collar.

Now I’ve made it into a pillowcase set, available in my Etsy shop.

Foxes

Amber's Fox - by flossy-p

This commission was from a sneaky-sweet man, as a surprise for his fiance for Christmas. He asked for a painting similar to the girl and wombat, but with his fiance instead, and her favourite animal; a fox.

He told me lots of little bits about each of them – details I represented in an orbit of icons.

I’m told she loved it. And I’m pret-ty sure he would have scored some high points too for being so thoughtful.

I liked the fox so much that I returned to my initial concept sketches, worked them up a little further and turned them into Star Fox and Moon Fox pillowcases. Now available in my Etsy shop!
