Three head bird wallpaper March 12, 2019 12:00
This wallpaper has been an ongoing project for a few years. I took an image of a sparrow and wanted it to look wooden, like an ancient tree. There were a lot of attempts to make it look right and I ended up discarding it for ages, something wasn't right about it. Recently I was going through my archive and came across this image again. I had a fresh mind and a clearer idea where I wanted it to go and it finally paid off...

This is my favorite of the new wallpapers. I was so pleased that I could draw a rabbit that looks like a rabbit! Everything about it gives me joy as it all seems to marry so well. Mad, fun, bright and surreal.

Sometimes I put aside a chunk of time to do some sketching of any old thing that I fancy. Some of this work ends up in the bin and some of it sits on my computer under new ideas for months, even years, until I am ready to look at it again. I may not like a sketch but something about it makes me keep it. Some of my best work has come out of a drawing that I have done and forgotten, and then I revisit and realise its potential. This is when I produce my best work I feel.

I have been working hard on a whole new set of designs for wallpaper and prints for the last six months or so.
I love animal prints but never attempted to do one myself until now. Whilst drawing this I was thinking of a big colourful mystical beast roaming around. I like this design because it would suit a lot of interior products too such as carpets, rugs and bedspreads. Ideas are flowing...

Finally got round to painting and sprucing up one of the B&B offices. Feeling very pleased with ourselves. Almost felt like smashing a champagne bottle against the wall to launch it!

Alanna Gallagher has written a nice little piece about us in the Interiors section of Irish Times online.
Love the fact it was mentioned that Lisa has a bit of Irish in her (oo er missus!).
She included a picture of our new Let the Music Play utility rocking chair lovingly restored by Out of the Dark.
