IdN Magazine Spotlight

Delighted to say that one of my University projects has been featured in IdN Magazine. This issue focuses on packaging design and my Carnival of the Animals project, first seen here, makes an appearance.

Thanks to IdN for including it!  I'm thrilled for my work to be included alongside some beautifully designed packages by some great designers.

John Lewis Christmas 2014

My Illustrations for John Lewis Christmas 2014 have launched!

Christmas Past images (including the reindeer and park scenes)  and the 12 days of Christmas illustrations are available on lots of paper goods - wrapping paper, gift bags and boxes and tags, as well as crackers, napkins, tins and a few table accessories. 

Wishing you all a very early Merry Christmas!

I'm working on some travel illustrations while trying to ignore the cold and wet weather outside.

More and my website...

I promise to keep this blog updated more now that I am leaving University. But you can also see my work here on my website, or on my tumblr.

More third year work updates:
 The idea behind this cover was to try and get away from depicting the characters but try and create a more sophisticated cover because after all Wind in the Willows is a classic for all ages. ( I read Wind in the Willows for the first time to complete this project, so not just a book for children.)

This image is just a one off image, I was trying to appeal to a younger audience and was thinking about turning it into a complete children's book. I've got to think of a story first though!

Third Year is nearly over!

I haven't posted for quite a while, third year has taken over but I have some images to share with you all. My work has changed more in this year than any other at University. After deciding to use more traditional media I have had a lot of fun (and run into a lot of problems)  experimenting with a new way of working. 
These images are based on the fairytales "Little Brother, Little Sister' and 'East of the Sun and West of the Moon.'

Crocodile fears.

I'd like to start this post by saying that I don't actually like reptiles or scaly animals, my phobia of snakes is particularly amusing to some of my friends, so my new obsession of drawing crocodiles seems strange.

Greedy Croc. 

Friendly Croc. 

Swimming Crocs. 

Croc in Laboratory Croc. 

Spoiler: Crocodiles do not feature in my next university project. But wolves do...
