It was one of those viral things, someone likes a page on facebook, and being nosy you go over to have a look and discover someone who tickles your funny bone. That’s how I found Angela Smythe who is based in Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire. Whether she is illustrating an inspirational thought or a silly thought, her characters are endearing and her style unique.

Just looking at her work you can see that she sees the world sideways

As we get closer to Christmas, I have a feeling I am the epitome of the picture above left 🙂 and my new years resolution will be along the lines of the picture on the right.

Just to make you all jealous, I signed up for Angela’s newsletter and as a result went into the draw for this opera singing goldfish and won! So chuffed, especially since La Boheme is on my Christmas wish list. I shall be singing along with the fishes if I get it, trying not to break the glass.

Christmas:
Angela’s facebook page is here
Her website with links to her etsy shop is here
Her work is for sale at the Heart Gallery at Hebden Bridge (UK) until 19 January 2014. Get details here

Map maniac like me?
Check out the online version of a huge map Angela painted of the South Pennines. Amazing quirky details and relevant poetry quotes from Simon Armitage. I am thoroughly enjoying finding all the lovely little bits and pieces. NB The map did not work at all in Explorer, works great in Firefox, though
