Help me pick three to submit to Curvy!

Curvy publishes a book of over 100 female artists, graphic designers and illustrators every year, and each year I am completely intimidated by it. Earlier this year I submitted work for the first time and was pretty dejected when it wasn’t accepted… I guess I am pretty bad at dealing with rejection :P

Not good enough
So I drew this, haha.

Once again, I will throw myself to the lions, errr selection panel, but I’m having a tiny crisis about what I should submit for consideration for next year’s book. I know that lots of people really like my typographic pieces but there are some other more illustrative pieces that I am fond of too. So, if you could choose three, which would you choose?

La donna mascherata

A line is all I need

Neatly Daily

Have a fancy day

Everything's okay
Everything’s okay, I drew this for you

Please, please help me out!

ALSO! I have updated my portfolio site, if you want to see more work! I am stupidly proud of it, and will continue to be until I think of a better way to display it :P


  1. I really like Neatly Daily…. I have a mess of hair that I've learned to love since turning 40. All beautiful work though. Best of luck. Leesa

  2. For Curvy, I think La Donna, although Have a Fancy Day just makes me think of you! Good luck next time.

  3. 1. Everything’s okay, I drew this for you

    I think your work is fabulous when you doodle over photographs. I am surprised you didn't get into Curvy last year as your work is completely on par with what is in there – and better than some… Good luck.

  4. Ohhh, choices!! I've always loved “Everything's okay, I drew this for you.” Definately that one.

    And….. “Red Ribbons” and “Neatly Daily”

    [Really, I think you should send “Not good enough for Curvy” – and shove it in their face for their poor decision making last year!]

  5. Neatly Daily and Red Ribbons are my favorites by far. I mean, not to say that I don't love the rest, because I do, but they are just so aesthetically and emotionally appealing to me.

  6. the first one, the third one, and then one of the type ones.

    MAYBE just submit the first image ;)

    gosh!! I totally forgot about submitted. I submitted a few years ago, but I probably should try again… hmmmmm.

  7. Good lady, your work is decidedly amazing. I would most certainly recommend including 'Every thing is OK' as it's been all over the internet in the past little while, reblogged and reloved for months and months. I also love La Donna Mascherata, perhaps mostly for her pretty ornamental hair.
    A Line is All I Need also has some lovely sentiments.
    Best of luck, hopefully this is your year!
