cosy, winter commission

I had a lovely commission a while ago, to do web icon designs for a wood-burning stove company and I thought now would be a great time to share them, as hopefully you are currently curled up in front of a log burner, mug of hot chocolate in hand (possibly reading a copy of the Beano) and a pile of kindling chopped up in the corner!

These were such good fun to do - I really had no idea that there were so many different types of chimney pot...

It was also strangely liberating to have someone else telling me what to draw as usually I spend half of each day roaming around the house wailing "I can't think of anything to draw," to anyone who will listen, only to come up with a brilliant idea, the one that will be my best ever lino print, just after bedtime.

mmmm log burners. Our current obsession! That tree should be shaking - worried that's gonna get the chop and burned! x

Of course it got chopped down - we burn everything...in fact todays kindling was an wooden dinosaur stencil set (which had seen better days but was NOT vintage/special/freecyclable!!) so we lit the fire with a diplodocus.
