Belly Dance Festival

I cant believe that it is all over but Sunday was the final day for the belly dance festival at Parramatta and the day that my sister Merilyn and I sold our wares! It was a really fun day - so much to see and hear and I loved watching the dancing, so many talented souls out there. They really made it look so enjoyable!
I'm sharing some of my favorite picis from the day. Merilyn sells tribal belly dance outfits and supplies through her business Tribal Line. 
I took prints, cards, notebooks and calenders. My best seller? Belly dancing cats!!!
Thanks for everyone who came and supported the event!

Belly Dance Blitz!

I'm fully immersed in a great project that isnt my usual subject for illustration!  My sister has been a belly dancer for many years and also has a business Tribal Line importing and selling tribal belly dance wear. In a little over a week we are joining together at a big belly dance meet to have a shop together. Merilyn will have her tribal wear and I have put together a number of designs for the day. I has been so fun looking, designing and painting. I have added them to my etsy shop and will be adding them to my madeit shop in the coming day or two.
Enjoy some of my designs...

Ok so this one is my favourite- I'm picturing it as fabric-Yum!
