Time for a visual beach getaway ~ whether you're sizzling or freezing in your neck of the woods, a moment's respite with a salt ocean dip just footprints away must surely be a welcome idea.

So come, let us sip piña coladas from pineapples, break out the snorkelling gear and give our hair beach waves the good old-fashioned way.  And on that note ...

Where there's fairy floss, there's a carousel pony!

Today's Paris illustration sees our cat burglar and her French bulldog accomplice aiding and abetting this merry-go-round gee-gee in making her giddy-up getaway.  Perish the thought as to what they'll get up to.  Lock up the Louvre and put your Picassos under extra lock and key!  And on that note ...

Sharing sundaes sometimes requires a team-based approach.

Today's fashion and fluffballs illustration sees us strategically sampling and hoping the management is extremely short-sighted or too busy polishing glasses to notice. This started off as a martini but in the interests of responsible drinking and pet ownership, ice-cream it is!  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you!

We're giving out free hugs ~ the only prerequisite is strong biceps!

Today's fashion and fluffballs illustration sees us wearing woollies in a winter wonderland.  It never snows where I live, but sometimes I do wish that given I feel the cold either way, a powdery drift now and then would not go astray.   Anyone for a hot toddy, blanket and sleigh?  And on that note ...

Happy Furry Friends Friday to you!

When they make cars that run on flower power, imagine what a lovely world it will be!

We'll wind down our windows and inhale the petal-infused fumes.   Cycling in traffic will engulf you in an aromatic cloud of bliss.  Ahhh!  Fill 'er up!  Meanwhile we can load up the back of this old beauty with bucketfuls of blooms and see where the road best travelled takes us.  And on that note ...

Whether you think you can or think you can't - you're right, according to Henry Ford.

As for this high-kicking kitty cat, stopping at one 'can' simply isn't enough, thereby proving if you think you can-can or think you can't-can't, you're also right.  And on that note ...

Francophile Furry Friends Friday illustration : Sailboat Fun, Jardin du Luxembourg Paris

Ahoy me hearties ... yo ho ho and a boatload of fun!

Today's Paris illustration sees an adorably regal Boston Terrier (inspired by my Instafriend Stinger @ohmydoggies) and his crew in the Jardin du Luxembourg preparing for some sailing fun.  Setting these quaint old boats into the large circular basin and urging them across the fountain-fed waters to the other side is a beautiful tradition for children visiting these glorious gardens.

Built in the 6th arrondissement of Paris in the early 1600s by Marie de'Medici (widow of King Henry IV of France) to complement her Florence-inspired palace, the Jardin du Luxembourg has a fascinating history of its own.  Fun fact: 20 statues of illustrious women and French queens surround the central green space of this calm and peaceful piece of Paris, making a beautiful celebration of women commissioned by Louis-Philippe way back in 1848.  I like to think it was an ode to girl power!  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Furry Friends Friday to you!

Francophile Friday illustration : Annick Goutal Paris and Chat Perche

Black cats are lucky, and in this case the luck caught on with the serendipitous location of perfumer Annick Goutal's beautiful flagship store in Paris a leisurely half dozen or so doors down from our hotel on rue de Bellechasse in the 7th arrondissement.  

As luck would also have it, Annick Goutal's newest release is called Chat Perché (Perched Cat).  So their window displays featuring fun faux felines perching and playing made for a perfect photo opportunity and illustration for me. 

In chatting with the delightful Marie who assisted us so helpfully, she explained that this perfume "is our new invitation for grown ups and little ones to play and celebrate the countless sensations you were used to feel, mesmerised by every single detail of the nature."  I suspect our little black kitty cat here is hoping to be mesmerised by a pot of cat grass shortly.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!

Francophile Friday illustration : Cycling Kitty and Frenchie Adore Aqua Paris Doors

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. 

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.  (Please click here to enquire about commissioning a beautiful, unique custom portrait illustration of your own furry friends.)  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!
