New designs in Waitrose!

Oh dear, my poor little blog has been so deserted lately... I should draw a tumbleweed :( It's not because I've been doing nothing though.. it's the opposite. I will back this up with visual evidence as soon as I can.

In the meantime... these are a couple of my designs I illustrated at Hallmark for Waitrose. They have come into store recently and I've just received the samples. Hooray!!!

Printing in the garden

The other day was the first hot sunny day I've been in my new house and free to bond with my garden (I didn't have a garden for 5 years before this!)... So I did some printing! I've got some ideas in mind for how I'll use the textures... will post back soon to show how I get on!

Dr Sketchy Sheffield

Here are some of my drawings from Saturday's Dr Sketchy in Sheffield - tattoo special! I used to go life drawing a lot but since I've had a mega busy couple of years with work/studying/general life I hadn't been for a while! Felt lovely to do some again :)

A dog and a bone

Thought I'd finally put up some little scenes I've been working on for my children's book portfolio. It's just a small project - a story in three pictures - to see what feedback I get from my agent.
I've drawn by hand and then coloured digitally, using scanned textures I've either painted/scribbled/made/found etc! I've sent them off to my agent so will wait to see what I hear, eek!

Meow


Thought I'd show a teeny preview of what I've been working on today.
This is just a tiny portion of it but I didn't feel ready to share the whole thing with the world yet!

Illustration Friday 'Prehistoric'

After tidying up the whirlwind mess I'd created working on my dummy book before going to Berlin for the week, I didn't know where to start with the amount of different things I needed to do. So this wasn't on my list of things to do.. but I thought it'd be a good little warm up - a very quick response to this week's 'Prehistoric' theme on the Illustration Friday blog.



All I could think of was that feeling of doom at the start of a boring lesson at school.. when the teacher writes a bland title on the board. I usually got this feeling in science, but who know's what the end of this lady's sentence is... It could be a prehistoric science lesson. Eek :(

Wedding invitations

It's been nearly a year now since I posted my Save the Date designs for my lifelong friend Hannah and her James... and now it's just a week to the big day. So I thought I'd share the invitations I illustrated for them...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas now int it!

I shared one of these designs in the summer when I created them, but I thought it would be better to share the rest when everyone is in Christmas mode!

I'm rather ashamed of my lack of blog posts the last few months.. it's been a bit of a mental year indeed.. So here's to a happy Christmas, a slightly calmer 2014 and more stuff on my blog. Hooray!
