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 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.

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!

Lalaland 2013 Calendar

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

flossy-p's Giant Wombat, is the June picture in the 2013 Calendar

Every year I spend hours and hours online, searching high and low for just the right calendar. I’m lost without one, but I’m very very fussy about them, I mean you’re going to be looking at it for a whole year!

For me it’s not just about the pictures, though that does play a big part, the layout, the size of the squares, the size of it overall… I won’t bore you with the rest of my scrupulous list, as it goes on and on. The secret is out.

Anyway, Lalaland have put together a 2013 calendar featuring lots of great illustrations. And upon first look it seems to tick all of my boxes. Good job Lalaland! I’m proud to be included.

You can buy it online for just shy of $20 right here!

Happy Customer

A happy customer sent me the BEST photo! It’s a portrait of Ekko, her Eastern Rosella, posing next to one of my mini-prints, (which itself features an Eastern Rosella). So cute!

Seduced by Facebook

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Last month I woke one day to find my online Etsy shop had almost sold out, and had miles of messages from people asking for more. After some silent astonishment, then gasps of excitement, I went off hunting, trying to discover where all this sudden attention had come from…

Etsy had featured my wombat pillowcases on their facebook page!!!

And then not long after, on their homepage!!!

My “online-seller” hopes and dreams had finally come true. I had a very busy month.

Now that things are slowing back down again, I have been seduced by the attention and have set up my own facebook page. A little late to the party I know, but still I’m here:
