Pits & Peaks : Sunday 24th September



My first magazine cover is out in the world! I got to work with the lovely Lauren, the beauty and brains behind Wellington Woman Magazine, for their Art and Fashion issue. I’ve never had a client who I’ve been more in tune with before, we had the exact same ideas of what the cover should look like and so the process of working to the print deadline was super smooth. Definitely one of those cases where I’m getting paid to do what I love. Also watch this space because there might be more WWM illustrations in future.

My sister is in Wellington on Wednesday. I guess technically this should be in next week’s Peaks & Pits? Oh well, breaking my own rules once again. I’m pretty lucky to have my best friend for a sister, except when she steals my clothes and all hell breaks loose, and I’m beyond excited to have her in Welly for 24 hours.

Kingsman 2. I probably laughed way more than what was funny. Also I can’t complain about having to stare at Taron Egerton for nearly two hours.



Four weeks left of uni. If you didn’t already know I’m currently a full-time grad student and I’ll be finished in T-minus four weeks. Not that I’m counting… I feel really lucky to be in a position where I’m illustrating practically full time alongside my studies however it’s definitely put me in a position where assignments tend to take a backseat. Humans can thrive on no sleep right? That’s definitely going to be me for the next month, so if you see me please be kind.

The election. Yikes. I’m excited for the day when our country can put the needs of the majority in front of the needs of the individual. Forever optimistic. If the results didn’t reflect what you were hoping for, like me, it just means we each need to take more personal responsibility. Look after our environment, our disadvantaged, our culture and our communities. Kia Kaha.
