Lots of folks seemed to like the CES project I posted recently so here's a similar one from a couple of years ago for @welaunch and Box Pensions.
Creating a busy city like this is always quite a process, layering it up, balancing the colours, achieving the right level of detail etc. And there's always a moment where it's a mass of lines and literally no-one can see what's going on, but I love a good tidy up and find a way through in the end! ✌
Hi, lovely people. I told you some time back about my challenging relationship with wires. On the whole they fluster me, largely because of the terrifying, dystopian ‘wires cupboard’ at Colour File HQ: when I go to open the door to this wire and charger hell, SIC throws himself in front of it, like he’s protecting me from a hungry bear. ‘Mum! Don’t!’ he pleads. ‘You know you’ll only get stressed!’ However, I have come to realise that wire does have some redeeming features. For example, I really rather like things made out of it, whether it’s Zulu telephone wire baskets or stylish wire shelves, like this one from @amaraliving that we used in the book. There’s something pleasingly gestalt about a wire shelf: there yet not there, sturdy enough to hold things yet delicate enough to let light pour through and help to retain a feeling of space. Clever. Top of the class, Wire Shelf. Seems like a good time to remind you that my book, Shelfie, is now on sale and I reckon you should buy it. It has oodles of ideas on how to organise and beautify your shelves - wire or otherwise (link in my biog) - and hopefully lots of colour inspo, too. In the meantime, maybe I should try to do something creative with the Cupboard of Doom wires; knit them into a scarf or make a macrame owl. Something to turn foe into friend. What are your thoughts?

Sometimes we just need that little reminder to breathe, deeply into the belly, let it all go with the out breath, stop looking for outcomes , so we be in the beauty that's right here, right now.
Finally a place to hang and store my artwork that I’m in the middle of, I’ve struggled greatly more mentally working in such a small nook compared to having an entire room available to me. Just having these on the walls has freed up a load of space on my tiny desk.
