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!

Art Lab For Kids

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012


Art Lab For Kids
is a wonderful new book by Susan Schwake, the mastermind behind artstream studios. It’s a source of ideas and lessons for creating all manner of different art with children… mind you I learnt a couple of new things from it too.



Beautifully photographed and clearly laid out, it steps you through 52 different art styles, each relating to a particular artist; a type of “how to achieve their look” guide.

And I am delighted to be one of the artists! I’m on the watercolour and pencil page.



The book is lovely, meaty and inspiring. You can buy it online here, and find out more about it here.

Lolo in Lalaland

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

“I found your colouring book in a newsagent in Adelaide. I was picking up some magazines for a friend who’d just had a double mastectomy after her breast cancer returned. Not being good at sitting still, she was frustrated at being stuck in a hospital bed. When I saw your colouring book, I knew it was the perfect gift – colouring in is so soothing, I know it will not only keep her mind off what she’s been through but help in her healing process as well. So thank you for creating such a gorgeous product. x” … from anonymous.

“Lolo isn’t lonely anymore” is my colouring book. It’s been out for a couple of months now, and I’m starting to get some really touching feedback.

Not to mention some pretty nifty colouring in by a class of Kindy kids…

Feel free to email me your colouring in!

The book is now available to buy online, from the Lalaland shop!

Borrowed Suitcase Zine

I was invited to be part of one of Mel Stringer’s great zines. (Mel is well known for her zines, but probably more recognised for her illustration work in Frankie Magazine).

Borrowed Suitcase is collection of works by a stack of really great zine artists and illustrators from all over the world. It’s out now and can be bought online here for the measly spare-change sum of $4!

Lolo Isn't Lonely Anymore: A colouring book by flossy-p

Colouring book story blurb, by flossy-p

Earlier in the year I was given the opportunity to create my own colouring book, and it’s now out!

Following the journey of a girl who moves from the city to the country, Lolo Isn’t Lonely Anymore is a story book that you can colour in. With lots of detail and shading to colour over the top of, this style of colouring book is suitable to a wider range of age groups than the standard type.

The book is published and distributed by Lalaland, is available in various book shops, boutiques and toy stores across Australia and New Zealand, and will soon be available to buy online in the Lalaland shop.

I’m so excited about the book, I keep forgetting to mention that Lalaland also released two of my illustrations as prints, and one as one of the large postcards that they are so famous for.

I have placed an order for a stack of the colouring books, so that I may sell them directly too. I’ll let you know when they arrive.

7.30 Report

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

If you were to ask, I’d tell you that one of my greatest fears is being on TV in the background of one of those tabloid news stories. You know the ones where all you see is a slow-motion close-up of a cellulitey bum walking away. Or worse, a zoomed in slow-mo shot of someone eating a hamburger, beetroot and sauce oozing out the side.

So I broke into a little sweat when a friend left a message on our answering machine the other night saying he’d seen me on TV. It was a news program, but a reputable one, and I was in the background, but thankfully not doing anything embarrassing.

The story, on the 7.30 Report, was about the success of Frankie Magazine, with lots of footage of the Finders Keepers Market. So my 3 seconds of fame was proudly riding on the coat-tails of Frankie Mag. And what a fine coat it is!

You can watch it here for the next few days on the 7:30 Report, from Tuesday 8th June (fast forward to just before the 25th minute).
