Dessine-moi un mouton
In the best possible way, it feels like my whole life has been about encouraging other people to find their creative outlets.
Ever since I started drawing, as far back as I can remember, people would ask me to draw things for them. Just like the narrator in Le Petit Prince, when asked to draw a sheep, at first I did exactly what I thought they wanted, but gradually learnt that what people really need is a prompt for their imagination.
CCS, part 3 - new projects
Quite some time ago now, we launched our first and second waves of colour-cut-and-sew cushion projects. They were very popular, but as we haven't brought out new versions with the new designs, their popularity has ebbed, as you would expect, so we are refreshing the range for this year's gift-giving season.
I decided to match up my most popular bird picture, my kereru, with one of my newest designs, kawakawa, for the first design.
