Shop Event 28 October 2021

28 October - Quernus Shop Event

I'll be holding a Shop Event on Thursday 28 October at 8pm BST. There will be quite a few Sugar Mice taking part in this event, along with some millefiori creatures that I made using the cane I made in the last Brew and a Blether (which you can watch here). Until I put them all in my shop, I've tagged all the creatures taking part on my Flickr page.

From January 2021, I've been putting all my live video chats and short stop-motion films on YouTube, as well as Facebook. There are just over 20 videos uploaded now, so I thought it was about time that I let you all know about it!

Quernus Squeak Show Calendar & Collectors' Club

The Squeak Show Calendar & Collectors' Club

My biggest project to date! This year, I'll be working on a calendar for 2022 with 12 detailed scenes showing the wee creatures in various settings which will be professionally photographed. Throughout the year I will also be running a Collectors' Club where people can collect 12 individual wee creatures inspired by each scene.

New FAQ section!

Everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask...

I have just updated my FAQ page! I've been keeping this page for several years, based on questions I often get asked. There's lots of information in there, if you haven't come across it before.

And if you have a question that isn't answered there, do drop me a line and I'll add it to the list.

Happy Wee Creatures

Happy Wee Creatures

I started the Happy Wee Creatures initiative during these "interesting times" to remind people that they are loved, appreciated and not alone. I will continue to send out Happy Wee Creatures to your special people for the foreseeable future - it's my way of giving something back and helping to make the world a happier place.

It's The Wee Things in Life collaboration

New collaboration launched
I'm delighted to announce the launch of a wonderful collaboration with Tara Slater of The Lesser Spotted Kiwi! Tara has created this beautiful illustration which captures everything that Quernus means to me :) We have created a special edition collectors' set (pictured) which includes a signed edition of the print, a Chick Magnet made by me, and a beautiful little wooden bunting stand made by Tara. A3 and A4 prints and greetings cards are also available.

Pop-up Peekaboo Unicorn book

Pop-up Peekaboo! Unicorn book

In 2018, I was commissioned by DK Publishing to make five unicorns to be photographed for a children's pop-up book. The book was published in 2019, and I love how they have captured each of the wee unicorns! What really tickles me is when peope post pictures of the book which they've seen when out and about ;) You can buy the book on Amazon UK and Amazon.com. For more photos, click here.
