They finally arrived in the post… my samples of ‘Canterbury in Pink Light’ as a paper cup! My painting of the Canterbury Plains and Southern Alps was chosen to be one of the artworks in the current BioCup Art Series. I was thrilled when they contacted me earlier in the year and asked me to be part of the project. And now here they are, and they’ve started popping up all over the place… so far I’ve seen photos on Instagram of my cup design in Sydney and Brisbane. I can’t wait to see where they turn up next!
The Art Series is produced by BioPak, an Australian-owned environmentally responsible packaging company that supports and promotes New Zealand and Australian artists by printing their work on BioCups. The cups are available from cafés around New Zealand and Australia. Click here to see the current BioCup Art Series and read about the artists and their artworks.
Our first ever Doodlemugs have turned out beautifully. They will be for sale at the Lyttelton Market (Christchurch, NZ) on Saturday 19th March — or contact Della’s Pottery on Facebook. Individually designed and handcrafted by Della’s Pottery and Anna Cull Art.
This thank you illustration is one of my all-time favourites. Created to celebrate a milestone on my blog in 2012, it is also the image most often ‘borrowed’ by people on the Interweb. So, given its popularity, I’ve decided to turn it into a note card.
If you click on the image above, you will be magically transported to my Etsy shop.
Thank you : )
‘CBD’ is another favourite that is now available as a note card. This one sprang from my ‘In the style of…’ drawing experiment and was inspired by the work of Jim Flora. You can read the original post here. It is based on a photograph I took of Christchurch in 2010. The centre of town looks nothing like this now… I really need to go in and take an ‘after’ shot ― I suspect that the only thing still standing will be that tree.
‘Canterbury’ is a new note card/art card available from my Etsy shop. The original was painted a couple of years ago and has always been a bit of a favourite. It began life as a digital background for a student project in 2011 (see below) and I liked it so much that I decided to paint it. And print it. And frame it.
The landscape is based on several different photographs rather than a single location but it is still a typical Canterbury scene, even if I did leave out the rivers, the houses, and the sheep.
