It was a quick drawing I did for Illustration friday for the topic "seed". Ethan was just a baby at the time so I went for a walk in the local park and drew it as he slept. A few months ago I found this on polyvore and was at first alarmed, then flattered, but now I am not sure how to feel about it. When I found it, it had been up there on Polyvore for a whole year. When I told my husband and my sister they said "that's great Anna!!". I am happy that the image is linked back to my blog, which is the way I found it in the first place. But then the artwork looks terrible cut like that. I do not condone the use of other peoples work, but I also like to do collages for my own scrapbooks and sometimes as inspiration for my artworks using photos I have cut from magazines. I also play around with fashion styling using pictures I have saved off fashion sites, plus I have dabbled with polyvore using fashion images. I assume that most of the collages on polyvore are done by young teenagers who have probably not even thought of the ownership issues. So where do you draw the line?

Shoe gazing

I love my new sandals almost as much as I love the jacarandas in flower at the moment! Don't worry I do have have little toes squished in there somewhere... And I must say I badly need a pedicure, but I generally go natural.

winter wardrobe (in my dreams)

Who needs Polyvore when you have photoshop?! Swing jacket and cheeky check dress by French Connection. Stainless steel "Toile" Earrings by Polli and birdy 100% hemp clutch purse by Quyen. Add to that some patterned stockings and the boots from Kumfs I'm lusting after and I'm in heaven. Sometimes it's just as nice to dream up these outfits.

Ok, maybe I did follow punk and ska music in my yoof!! I probably should be lusting after some Doc Martins.
