Bonjour ! 

After a week in Paris and a week of acclimatising back to Brisbane life, I'm still dog-paddling in escargot-spirals and dreaming of croissants aux amandes, sipping champagne with our balcony view of the Eiffel Tower sparkling on the hour in the evening, sipping champagne and eating plump, glorious berries overlooking the Louvre (are we seeing a trend here?  Oui!}, carousel rides in les Jardins des Tuileries and le Jardin du Trocadéro ~ and so much more.  You can check out photos on my Instagram with more to follow in the coming weeks (possibly months!)

It was lots of fun cobbling together my semblance of French to chat with the charming and friendly Parisians we met, including a darling love in her 80s with the most magnificent hat and so adorable, I wanted to tuck her under my arm and bring her home!

I'm looking forward to settling back into my studio and hitting the drawing board to bring you lots of fresh illustrations to brighten your day.  Meanwhile, here's one I made before .... with the addition of our resident cheeky Bentley, the photobombing French bulldog.  (To order a custom photobomb portrait illustration of your kitty, pooch, rabbit or whatever, please view available backgrounds and options here.)  Wishing you a beautiful weekend, wherever your dreams may take you.  Keep taking baby steps towards them.  They really can come true.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

Ahh, jumbo croissants that are bigger than a French bulldog puppy?  That I'd like to see!

Today's Paris illustration sees us taking a spot of breakfast overlooking the rooftops.  Judging by the poses of these cute Frenchies, today's news looks like it's sleepworthy.  Our sweet snoozing kitty seems to agree.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Frenchie Friday to you!

When holidaying in Greece, quite possibly the most arduous thing to do is to choose your favourite shade of blue!

Today's illustration sees us fashionably casual and casually fashionable.  We're taking our of our Instagram besties Miss Olive the Frenchie along for the ride.  Tickle us pink and stripe us lucky.   Sitting high on that perch, she's rather plucky.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you!

Francophile Friday Paris Illustration : Beret Beauty Frenchies at Paul

11.5.18

Ever feel like you're being watched?

Today's Paris fashion illustration sees our beret-bearing beauty under close scrutiny ... or rather I suspect it's the spread on the table that really has their attention!  This cute French bulldog and his black cat sidekick are notorious in Paris for their pastry-nabbing capers ... just take a look here if you don't believe me.  

Our backdrop is one of the iconic black shopfronts of the PAUL bakery/pâtisseries throughout Paris, France and the world.  Their heritage harks back to a family business that started in 1889 with the Mayot family in the Artois region in northern France where Charlemagne Mayot and his wife had their own bakery.  In the early 1950s as the family business grew, they acquired the already-established bakery/pâtisserie PAUL.  They introduced the distinctive all-black facades across their stores and ~ much like the sustainably produced winter wheat in their rustic breads ~ continued to flourish from there. You can read all about them and find their store locations here.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

We can't be accused of wearing rose-coloured glasses today! 

Black and white is such a classic look, occasionally I put the rest of my palette away.  On the subject of today's illustration, aside from that ~ there's not really a lot to say ... except that I hope your weekend is exceptionally un-grey!  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

Fashionable Friday Illustration : Wear in the Blazers Are We Wondering?

20.4.18

Get ready to do a runner : this feline is preparing to fly !

Today's Fashion and Fluffballs illustration features a look I like to call, "The blazer and jeans are from my local RSPCA thrift store ... I have no clue if it's 'in' and I really don't care!"  

Thankfully, I'm finally reaching the point where I'd rather dress in my own style and stop myself doing things like Googling 'are skinny jeans and high heels still fashionable?'  The answer, by the way, was Yes, Definitely Not, and With Some Updating: Maybe.  I love that look and sometimes, I love today's look, so I vow to do my best to simply wear what suits me! 

So come, let us wander instead of wondering and go where our whims fancy.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

Fluffy Francophile Friday Illustration : Yorkies in Paris Love

Ahh, young love !

Today's illustration sees these two smitten Yorkie puppy dogs honeymooning on a Paris rooftop overlooking the City of Light.  No longer the dashing bachelor we interviewed after his first custom illustration by Shell Sherree, Sherlock tied the knot with his beloved Tinkerbell in Sydney overlooking the harbour in a ceremony that captured the attention of media and had all the girl pups in town heaving sighs of disappointment that he's now off the market.  Sorry ladies ... your loss is Tinkerbell's gain!

Sherlock and his human engaged me to create a special one-of-a-kind romantic memento that will last for a lifetime ... just like their love.  I can't tell you how much I adore doing what I do!!  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

It's not easy being green... unless you're one of this glamorous crew!

In another of our 'Who wore it better?' posts, Lupita Nuong'o lights up the garden in her glamorous green Gucci gown ... and her four-legged mascots are making it very hard to choose.

So let's not!  Some decisions are made to be unspoken.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionably Fluffy Friday to you!

Francophile Friday illustration : Eat and Run Frenchie Fun & Winter White

30.3.18

Sharing is caring.  Just ask this sweet Frenchie.  A crusty French baguette is a cheap trick for winning four-legged friends.  The two-legged kind usually need at least a hefty chunk of oozy cheese and bottle of Beaujolais thrown into the bargain.

Today's #FashionAndFluffballs illustration sees us lounging around in comfy winter whites and those shoes indicate we're getting ready to do a runner.

So come, let us tie our laces firmly and hold our totes tight.  Ready, set, go!  And on that note ...
