If life has other plans for your travel plans, you can always journey with your mind.  And I hope my illustrations also keep your travel dreams alive!  (You can head on over to my studio store for fine art prints to keep you happy and inspired every time you gaze upon them, and Italian silk scarves for your local scenic drives.)

And when you're putting pins on a map of Italy for a future trip, here's a quaint and enchanting place to stop by: il Museo della 500 di Calascibetta near Sicilia.  

This tucked-away treasure trove holds a fun and captivating array of memorabilia and novelties dedicated to this very adorable motor car.  

And it's my pleasure to have loaded up my fleetest carrier pigeon with the original of today's ink and watercolour illustration to join other creative Fiat 500-inspired works contributed by artists from around the world to this petite and charming museum for all cute car enthusiasts to enjoy.  

If you're there someday in the future when regular travel returns from its overextended holiday, plan on a leisurely hour or two of soaking it all in along with the picturesque surrounds! And on that note ...

Happy fluffy Fiat 500 Friday to you!

Happy New Year !  

In the spirit of eco-fashion, Ella the Catwalk Kitty fossicked in a forest and found a flock of naturally-shed feathers to fashion into a frock.  It's amazing what you can do with a glue gun and ingenuity!  And on that note ...

Happy Feline Friday to you!

 If there's anything better than flowers, it's an aqua-tinted flower truck in Italy filled with them.  

Today's illustration is replete with a feline flower arranger - something all flower trucks should make mandatory for maximum petal placing pleasure.  As for our German Shepherd in the front seat, she might be inclined to herd a few sheep along the way, so best we leave the driving to a pro.  And on that note ...

Happy Friday Flowers to you !

PS:  Christmas Delivery Dates are now up in store - and there are beautiful original artworks, fine art prints and Italian silk illustrated Leap of Lovely Leopards scarves awaiting your Add to Cart pleasure.  Merci, grazie, thank you!  You can also head directly to my Society6 store for wall art and merchandise shipped directly from there to you.

 When you can't decide between a Roman Holiday and a Parisian one ... why choose?!

Today's illustration demonstrates the scenario, should you wish to replicate such a move.  And Ella the catwalk kitty has arranged a makeover of the Arc de Triomphe to put her feline stamp on the location.  Better that than other ways of marking territory!  So don your crisp cottons and relaxed linens, rev up your scooter and let's get ready to Meep-meep and Vroom-vroom.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Feline Friday to you!

Francophile Friday : Ode to Odette, Paris

24.7.20

Odette - Choux Pâtisserie in Paris illustration © Shell Sherree all rights reserved

Fancy shooing the blues away?  These choux can do!

Today's illustration takes us armchair travelling to the 5th arrondissement in Paris, where you'll find the ever-so-charming Odette pâtisserie and salon de thé tucked into the crook of rue Galande's arm.  {There's another on rue Montorgueil in the 1st, too.}

At a glance you'll be forgiven for assuming those are towers of macarons.  Mais non, Odette is the home of choux, in myriad individual flavours, beautifully boxed, or when you really want to share the choux love: procure one of their tempting towers.  I'm starting at the top and working my way through.  Shall I order us tea for two?  And on that note...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

PS:  The photographic inspiration for today's illustration is kindly thanks to Mirjam, author of Destination Paris, a story about three gals and their intertwining lives and passions in Paris.  Release date September 2020, so hop on over there to stay updated!  And pop on over to my online studio store to order this as a fine art print sent directly to your door.  Merci, grazie, thank you!

Feline Friday : When Life Gives You Wool Balls

10.7.20

When life gives you wool balls: knit a jumper!

Today's illustration, however, sees that scenario unlikely to happen.  This wool ball wonderland is far too tempting for our fashionable feline, who is currently assessing the degree of difficulty imposed by today's wardrobe choice versus the upwards trajectory required in order to unravel those dangling delights irrevocably.  I predict she will overcome the necessary odds and still make it home in time for dinner.  And on that note ...

Happy Feline Friday to you!
