Hello! We’ve just restocked the Thefty online shop in time for some Christmas shopping! We’ve got the full range of Retroviral Mugs available, as well as Christmas Cards and art prints. Happy shopping!
Hello! I’ve been posting on this blog since 2009 (Argh! Six years!) and although I do NOT plan to stop, I’d like to change things up a bit.
Until now, all my creative news has been posted here, whether it be Thefty news, or my personal freelance work. The time has come to separate the two streams. My personal illustration and photography work will now move over to www.HelenaMaratheftis.com, my shiny new portfolio website and blog. You can follow me there on Bloglovin’ if you like, and I hope you come and say hello!
All Thefty-related news will remain right here, so don’t run away!
That’s all from me now, but I’ll be back soon with come exciting news…stay tuned!

And lastly, I made this creative masterpiece:
I had pictures of llamas lying around from a recent farm visit, and I couldn’t help myself. Don’t pretend you don’t love it.
Hello! Here’s a drawing I did yesterday during my designated doodle time. (Yes, I set aside time to just mess around with pens and paper and Photoshop. It helps to keep me sane.) Is it wrong that I want to wear the outfit I’ve drawn? Futuristic loungewear is how I would describe it.
The characters I draw always come with their own personalities. This one’s a bit of a whippersnapper firecracker with a heart of gold. She lives alone in a huge white house and is often seen watering the grass in full make up and big hair.
I think I’m going to name her Martha, partly because she’s got a hint of that tripped-out 60s vibe that Martha Rich depicts so well. (Hi, Martha!)
