Just a little update on all things ArtPix......!

Have had a few days in lovely Devon recently, this time of year is brilliant to go down there.
You can have the vast Woolacombe beach all to yourself, the absolutely wild weather only enhances the experience!

They will conveniently be on sale at my next fair, which will be DOTTY SPARKLE's VINTAGE & HOMEMADE FAIR on 2nd March in Thorpe Bay. Here is the fantastic poster for the fair.....

Issue 2 of the amazing vintage inspired magazine TEASE AND CAKE is out now.........

And if you look hard enough you will find a picture of me in there!!!!

Having met the spiffing TEASE AND CAKE team at the ESSEX VINTAGE WEEKENDER last December, we had a little chat and a photo was taken!

This really is a great mag and a must have for all fans of vintage...
It is choc-a-bloc full of amazing photos of vintage themed pin-ups and a whole lot more, who could resist?!

Check it out now and buy a copy:

Fantastic cover for Issue 2 of TEASE AND CAKE!

Hello everyone, this is my first post of 2013!!!

Just a tiny update of how things are going....

I've already started on some new ideas, including my little tribute to the classic music hall song Oh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside...

Santa was kind enough to give me some classic French adverts from the 30s to the 60s and I've recently found some amazing vintage items, including some fashion magazines from the 40s and 50s. So I have plenty of material to use for new ideas!

I've also recently bought loads of retro programmes and annuals, so I'll also be updating my RETRO FOOTBALL collages. Trouble is I just can't decide on what team to do next, any suggestions very welcome!!!

Keep in touch for more news and ideas coming soon!!
