Books

I made my first illustrated book when I was about 5 years old. Ever since then it's been an ambition of mine to have a shelf full of books I've made with my name on the cover, but it wasn’t until 2013 that I allowed myself to go for it. The result was The Gratitude Project. It captured people’s imaginations in a way I never anticipated and the whole experience has spurred me on to create more lovely books.

The Gratitude Project

A Year of Saying Thank You to the People Who Changed My Life

This gorgeous picture book makes the case that all it takes to radically transform your life is a change of mindset, and Eli herself is living proof of that premise.

Interwoven between all of the original artwork and blog posts from the original project are snapshots of Eli’s story. From the serious and debilitating depression which prompted her to begin the Gratitude Project, to the triumphant finale, this is a story which will inspire and uplift you.

With a foreword by Barbara J. Winter, author of Making A Living Without A Joband founder of Joyfully Jobless Read more...

The Creative Compass

An Illustrated Guide to Rediscovering Your Creativity

This full-colour, lavishly illustrated book will give you all the tools you need to beat creative block, free yourself from self-doubt and finally get organised in a way which utilises your creative strengths rather than working against them.

Divided into four sections, this book will help you to:

  • Get unstuck - tried and true methods for breaking through creative block and getting clarity on your next steps.
  • Get inspired - where to look for inspiration when your well is dry, and how to make the most use of it when it arrives.
  • Get organised - finally, an organisational system which works with your creative brain instead of against it! Plus, goal-setting 101 for actually making tangible progress on your big dreams.
  • Get productive - how to easily achieve that elusive 'flow' state and work smarter, not harder.

Designed with visual thinkers in mind, The Creative Compass will be a book you return to again and again, no matter what stage of the creative journey you're on.
