Happy November everyone! Autumn has legged it and the bad weather and cold has elbowed it's way into our lives with a vengeance, but that means Christmas is on it's way! Yay! This year is going to be a super special as it's the Draws' household's first Christmas with Murphy, our gorgeous baby girl! Very much looking forward to it. (Currently trying to curb the overwhelming desire to put the tree up!)
In all honesty, there's been a Christmas vibe around the studio for a couple of months now as I've had the utter privilege to work with Cardiff Council on the official artwork for Cardiff Winter Wonderland. I was so thrilled to be approached and working on it has been a fantastic way to spend my working days. (not really like work at all!)
Not only did I get a sneak peek at the new ice rink, which after one of the wettest winters on record last year has a clear span roof and night sky lights! I had the pleasure of illustrating some of Cardiff's most iconic buildings including the New Theatre and Cardiff Castle, as well as some Winter Wonderland family favourites!
It opened officially on the 10th of November and as well as the ice rink there's an amazing Alpine village and bar which looks just like something out of Hobbiton! Get yourselves down to have a look. I did and I was so chuffed to see my illustrations all along the road and the park leading into Winter Wonderland! Check out my happy face!
It's been a fantastic 2016 and hugely excited to see what 2017 has to offer! Happy winter everyone!
Bye for now!
