My Fwiend the Illustrator!!!

Ok, so a bit of a plug here for a good friend of mine, Faye Durston. Faye is an unbelievably talented artist and illustrator. We were at school together a few moons ago and she has always had an amazing arty talent. Take a look at these:

This one is my fave! It's called Sky Painter and
I am the proud owner of this lovely print!

These were just to get you warmed up. Faye has recently had a book published! I give you, The Wychwood Fairies!! It is, without a doubt, the prettiest, whimsiest book you will ever own.

The following is from Amazon:

'Outlandish adventurer Harriet has been hired by the illustrious Fairy Aerodynamic Exploration Society to track down the elusive Wychwood fairies. No one, so far, has been able to find them. Will Harriet and her faithful pet dragon Eric be up to the job? Find out in this breath-takingly beautiful and imaginative book.
Young readers will love joining Harriet on her quest as they read her removable letters and postcards, search every inch of Wychwood and camp out overnight on a midnight hunt for fairies. With stunning artwork, a wittily recounted story and a whole host of inviting novelty elements, this book is the perfect gift for all fans of fairies.'

Now, Faye is extremely modest, shy and would never boast or brag.... so I'm going to do it on her behalf! I'm not proud!! Currently boasting a 5 star rating on Amazon, this book is breath-taking. The illustrations are out of this world, the detail enough to make your heart jump a bit and, honestly, you NEED TO BUY THIS BOOK. And I'm not just saying it cos she's my friend. Nuff said. Except that you need to buy it. Did I say that already? To see more of Faye's work go here. To read her blog go here.

Love, hugs and fairy kisses

Loola xx
