This Autumn I collaborated with ‘I Love Shrewsbury’: a local project about the people, for the people…
On the spot sketches of local folk
I Love Shrewsbury (ILS) is an exciting new photography and magazine project sharing stories about local people and everyday lives. It is about bridging community gaps and connecting people.
As part of the project, specially-illustrated, limited edition charity tea towels of Shrewsbury Coffee House have been made.
They are being sold in aid of homeless charity The Shrewsbury Ark. All profits go to ARK – you can buy them from the ‘Cherie did this’ website by clicking here

What a wonderful day we had the day we went to … Church Stretton ! Longmynd Press launched the first book in the series of Zig Zag the Stripey Spotosaurus books.
Zig Zag and the Giant Adventure went down a storm in the lovely rural Shropshire town. We had drawings and baby grows all Zig Zag themed. You can watch a film of the day thanks to The Shropshire Star ! View it here

First of all apologies for the silent treatment. Don’t you hate those blogs that show no sign of life. During my absence, besides undertaking various commissions, I’ve been beavering away on a couple of projects which will shortly come to fruition. In September I will launch a range of stationery & gift cards under the ‘Cherie did this’ heading. At Design Junction I will be working on a collaboration with Enigma lighting doing the artwork for their stand and exhibiting as ‘Cherie did this’.
Secondly this summer will see the children’s book ‘Zig Zag and the Giant Adventure’ get published … It’s top secret until the pages hit the press and then I look forward to sharing it ! It’s been great fun illustrating the first in a series of books by author Barbara Townley. Although I’ve never seen myself as a children’s illustrator once you tap into your inner child it’s not so hard… perhaps because I never actually grew up.
What a treat to be openly invited to sketch at a music event. Inevitably the crowd are as entertaining to sketch as the musicians.
