Anonymous asked: your art is on 9gag! 9gag(.)com/gag/a8bWZdp

Ha, oh once again I’m not sure how to feel about that. Any publicity is good publicity, I suppose!

Side note - I got freaked out by the onslaught yesterday and put my laptop under my bed for a few hours until I felt a bit calmer. I still haven’t answered all my emails though. 

onabeautifulday asked: Went on reddit,com and saw an image of an embroidered fawn on the front page and I knew right away who made it (I've been following you for about 5 years) I haven't used tumblr in a long time but I just had to log on to make sure it really was you! So cool! Thought I would let you know my little story :) congrats!

Thanks :) I have to say I’m not sure if I should be happy about being on reddit or 100% done with the internet. We’ll see.

Anonymous asked: Where is your white cardigan from? Looks so good ! :)

I think I got the one I photographed from New Look (UK), they sell them quite cheap and they’re really comfortable :)

My work was featured on thisiscolossal yesterday (click through to see the post), as a result I’ve had a lot of interest in my illustrations since and have been trying to extract myself from a mountain of emails for most of today. It looks like some pretty exciting stuff is going to come out of it that I can’t post about just yet.

But, for some inexplicable reason I find writing emails far harder than is normal (my first plan if I ever become rich is to hire someone to do it for me. They can run my twitter too because I don’t understand that either) so now I’m going to lie on my bed with a cup of tea and Walden.

bringmecherrypie asked: I'm sure you don't watch television alot. But when you do, what are some of your favorite series (apart from Game of Thrones)? Also do you watch Sherlock?

My favourite shows are The X Files and Twin Peaks. I also tend to watch a lot of Criminal Minds while working because I know what happens so I don’t have to pay too much attention.

I watched the first season of Sherlock but it didn’t really do it for me.

Anonymous asked: Why jane eyre is good for halloween read list?

Is it? I suppose it could be, the ‘spooky’ side of the plot isn’t huge but the Brontë’s did excel at creating a moody atmosphere. It probably wouldn’t be my first pick for such a list though.

Anonymous asked: I have bit of a random thing to ask, since you've worked and lived in London for a while I believe. I am planning to move to London some time next year but apart from Zone 1, I am clueless about the boroughs and I don't know which parts of London are somewhat affordable and nice to rent a flat in, that are also close to the center. (Or am I dreaming too hard?) Do you have any advice? Sorry if this is a silly question, hah.

I did, but I was but a youngun’ so I probably can’t give you any useful information for today’s rental market. Try asking my pal magicfran, she’s lived in London for the last few years (excepting one year in Oxford with yours truly) and will likely know a lot more about where is affordable but not  a death wish these days :)
