Art Swap!! Get your pencils ready . . .

IMG_0073In celebration of Spring’s arrival (any day now, I’m sure!) and Blackbird, Blackbird, What Do You Do? publication, I am having an art swap challenge. I am looking for bird-lovers (feathery variety), to draw one of their favourite birds and post it to me. Let me know your postcode and I will send a bird drawing back. You can use pencils, paints, paper, glue, stamps, pens – whatever you fancy. If you want me to draw a particular bird for you, put a note in with your drawing. I’m encouraging people of any age to take part and will keep it going for roughly two weeks and then I will show the results!

So to recap . . .

  • Send your bird art to me: Kate McLelland, 7 Kirknewton Court, Kirknewton, West Lothian, EH27 8BT
  • Include your name, address and age and whether you would like a particular bird send back!

Have fun! I can’t wait to see them . . .

 

Blackbird’s Book Launch

February has been a bit of a whirlwind. Between briefs, meetings, sick kids, sick me and school visits there was also a launch for Blackbird, Blackbird, What Do You Do? The party was held at Blackwell’s children’s department in Edinburgh. The staff were lovely and lots of friends and family came – plus I got to make some new friends! I was very impressed with the birdy knowledge of my young audience, as was Pip. Here are a few photographs of the launch, thanks in advance to my friends and family (who do not know I have pinched some of their photos!!)

Pip is now out there and available to buy . I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed creating it!
