Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I haven't quite gotten around to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust. 

So if you've ended up here, hello and welcome. I still tweet from time to time and pin (see above) and if you want to see what I do, click on the giant box below that says VIEW MY WORK.

TTFN, y'all.

I LOVE ILLUSTRATORS. My dream job (yes, like Dawn from The Office) is to be an illustrator... and a baker, the Belgrade bureau chief for Bloomberg and, well, a few other sundry things. Back during my more regular tenure in London, I spent a fair amount of time at The Hospital Club and particularly in the Bellini Bar. I like a fizzy cocktail as much as the next freelance writer, but it was the Julie Verhoeven walls that kept me coming back. Garance Doré inspires both jealousy and admiration (she's brilliant AND gets to snog The Sartorialist!?) in equal measure. Natasha Law has a strange, hypnotic hold on me and Quentin Blake brought Roald Dahl to life (not that he needed any help) before my very eyes... still does, in fact, as I don't think you should ever stop reading Dahl (and if you haven't, read his sinister short stories. Macabre and hilarious.... Tales of the Unexpected is a treat). My friend Carol Chu (the lovely lady who turned my vision for a logo into reality once upon a time. Thank you!) blows me away with her work. Teach me, I implore! 

But, whoa, whoa, back to the point (focus, Jess, focus). There's another illustrator who has a certain way with a felt-tipped pen.
