We could all use a little more Dumbledore in our lives.
Experimenting with new nibs, making up tiny stories about people I don't know.
So, here we are again almost exactly 2 years later, with another book. I'm excited—for you, for me, in general.
The UK edition of the book has a different title, and is being released a few days earlier than the US one. The American version is entitled The Illustrated Book of Sayings, and will be released on September 13th. Then the British enjoy being a little obscure so we've gone with Speaking in Tongues as a title, and this one will be out September 1st! I still don't know precisely why, but there we have it.
Yet still we struggle endlessly to keep the fleeting within our grasp.
Who is a Vimeo Staff Pick? Me, sort of.
The wonderful team at CBC Radio created a darling animation about love based on words from my book, Lost in Translation. I'm a sucker for spending far too long gawking over the incredible videos the team at Vimeo choose to put in this section—the beauty of cinematography in recent years is just unspeakable.
Do not despise anything, really.
A piece of illustration from my second book... The Illustrated Book of Sayings! I'm not sure why I've posted all my second book secrets on Instagram and neglected to post them here—I suppose the former always feels more immediate, friendlier, less formal.
I finally figured out how to centralise pages on my website while keeping the menu right. By this I mean: I got a coding human to help me and they are so clever with these computer languages I cannot even keep up. It looks so much better, and I felt truly fabulous when I copied/pasted the same code into the shop page, the newsletter page. You name it, I made it central.
P.s. I also added a permanent header image of stars.
One day I will get around to something more serious than a quote. Clearly, today is not that day.
Giving so much out can be exhausting, it's mightily important to create yourself—fairly, carefully, and with wild abandon.
P.s. Readers of my newsletter usually get their sticky paws on new quotes, new 'animals in knitwear' illustrations, new newness in general before anyone else. Mostly because I forget to post them everywhere afterwards... so please join us! You'll receive my newsletter once a week (normally Saturday 4pm) and it's super fun also I like emailing real people who I do not know in the slightest.
