I’ve been thinking for a while that I need to give my card business a new name for a couple of reasons, firstly to reflect the style of the cards better and also to separate it from the other creative work I do. So, i’ve drawn a logo and the new name will be (drum roll)….Just Like Sophie. Simple hey?!
This summer I was approached by Amanda from the organisation ‘Somerset Against the Badger Cull’. She was a fan of my work and wanted to commission me to create an original artwork that could be used to make cards and prints to sell and raise funds for the organisation and to help the poor badgers. Here is a link to their website for more information: http://somersetagainstthebadgercull.uk/
Here is what I came up with…
Lately i’ve been doing some new work that is beginning to explore emotions and feelings, something i’ve not done for a long time. It is refreshing to step outside of the greetings cards world for a bit and try something different. Of course I am still doing my greetings cards as I love it and that is my business, but they are not the only thing I do. These illustrations are larger scale pieces. I am going to create a series of them. Please let me know what you think. Thanks for reading.
‘Let it Go’
Today I finished this piece. The feathers are made out of all different kinds of paper. I really enjoyed making it and like it’s simplicity. It might make a nice print for the wall or wrapping paper and of course a greetings card design! 😉
Someone sent me this photo they took of one of my postcards…in front of the bridge itself, very clever!
Hello there! So the latest news is…I’ve just finished this new birthday card design called “Dogs with Hats”. Nothing weird about that… 😉

We have created our own version of the nonsense poem by Edward Lear, it’s a short narrated story and is just over 2 minutes long.
It was all created by hand and really was a joy to make, we hope you enjoy it.
Hello blog, it’s been a while. I’m trying out making different styles of feathers to see what will work at the moment and enjoying working with different kinds of paper. Here are some examples.
I’m busy getting ready for a show in London called Top Drawer (17-19 January). New brochures and a card order have just arrived in the post. I’ll be launching some brand new designs. My cards and prints will be on display in the stationary section, stand ZB43. If you’re visiting the show do drop by and say hello.
