Céleste







Mademoiselle Céleste is having a bad hair day...
(And birds are loving it!)
In fact i was trying all sorts of hats on Céleste but in the end I decided on a simple cap; I created the illustration for a collection of birthday invitations, here is one of them:


The artwork was done in photoshop, which means i can customise the card so Céleste is available in blue, red, pink… or whatever color you prefer. These ones are being mailed to a little girl far away, but will soon be available in my shop too. More on that later...


Not much else is going on apart from working & enjoying cosy evenings at home. The rainy weather is perfect for drinking tea, reading books… & being happy :)

(If you want to see random snapshots of the small things that make me happy in my studio click HERE.)

  1. Love the birds in the hair, so funny :) I like the little wooden stamps in your photos, something about them is so inviting.

  2. "Mademoiselle Céleste is having a bad hair day..."
    If she only knew how much I like the colour and functionality of her new hair-do, she would certainly smile!:D
    The change of the weather makes me enjoy the cup of hot coffee more than ever, too...

  3. She might be having a bad hair day, but she's made mine a little happier just looking at her. I always enjoy seeing your wonderful artwork :)

  4. Her bad hair resembles a birds nest...perhaps that is why the birds are flying around it! HAH Cute illustration! I didn't know you were opening a shop? I will certainly be looking forward to when you open it. I love your illustrations and would make it a priority to purchase one! :)

    Stay warm and drink lots of hot beverages!! ❤❤

  11. Hi Sandra, do you know that, for me, the word, "mademoiselle" sounds in my ears like music, as something soft and delicated ♫ ♪ ♫ :)
    Oh poor mademoiselle!!! (maybe this are Angry Birds) but the color of her hair is beautiful!!!
    XoXo!!!!!!

  14. Oh, I commiserate with Mademoiselle Céleste. Birds nest in my hair too whenever I don't blow dry ... ! But I do think her pink pouf is absolutely lovely.

    Your cards are beautiful. It's almost a shame to write on them! -- J xxx

  33. Lovely Celeste and her duckling hair! You're so creative it's a wonderful idea and much better than me this morning. When I looked in the mirror I noticed white paint in my hair and I haven't been painting for 2 days! Yes I do wash my hair, it's oil based paint! :)
