I have just finished my fist trade show at Top drawer. It went better than I could have ever expected. I have lots of orders to fulfull and have had to initiate another large print run. Great news. My cards were very popular. Interestingly the 5 most popular were, The Hare, The little Owl, The Fox, The Rooster and the cat licking it’s paw.
I now have a collection of 21 cards 16 of animals and 5 of repeating patterns of birds.
Check them all out at my shop, The DM Collection.

One of the most recognisable songbirds in the garden is the plucky Robin. Being a member of the thrush family, it’s not only cousin to the song thrush and blackbird, but also to the nightingale, so it’s no surprise that the robin has a beautiful voice as well.
The earliest depictions of the use of the heart symbol is believed to derive from the ancient culture of Cyrene, a North African city which was founded by the Greeks in 631 BC, and then later ruled by the Romans.
There’s a lot of ancient mythical beasts which seem pretty isolated, unique to a country’s culture, or even to a specific region. Others, like mermaids, dragons, and giants, are intercultural, being known by many. The Phoenix is one of these mythical superstars, and was known by the Greeks, the Romans, the Egyptians, and even by the Chinese.
