My Foxes stickers arrived from Awesome Merchandise, and they're bloody lovely.
I should have maybe coloured the ruled lines in the ginger of the foxes as the black lines are a little sharp. Either way, my envelopes will look pretty when I send out orders to my ever growing fans.
Enjoy Some Pretty Drawings at 6/8 Kafé, Temple Row, Birmingham. They feature a series of four woodland animals that I am selling as prints and as whimsical greeting cards. Also an exhibition-only print of Carey Mulligan's Daisy as seen in The Great Gatsby, and a vintage Italian Lemonade poster which was a self-directed packaging design project
This is a piece I am working on in reply to a set of song lyrics for a competition entry. It is a commentary on the over reliance on social media and the posing clones society has become. So, happy messages!
I will be creating an editorial spread of the most iconic Oscars dresses from over the years, including Audrey Hepburn's famous white dress and Angelina Jolie's silky, central cut dress. I have been working on incorporating watercolour textures to my work to add a floatier, looser feel to my illustration.
This is an illustration I have entered for the AOI World Illustration Awards under Self-Promotion. I wanted to enter some picture book work as I feel it is strong work however my newer pieces have this minimalistic feel.

So I illustrated the portrait of Daisy about a year and a half ago, it was just the hair illustration with the jewelled head band. Then I added the face and it became a film poster (although ear detail is still needed), then I thought the poster was swamping all the detail in just this piece so I have stripped it back again to its original form.

My design is titled Owl Aboard! I wanted to create a piece promoting Birmingham’s forward- thinking and development of the new Metro service which will travel from Snowhill to New Street. Focusing on this theme was when the idea took flight.
I created a whimsical world in the trees above Birmingham where owls flock to catch the Metro to Snowhill. The little owlets departing the train are on a school trip is an ode to Birmingham recently being named for best UK city to visit.
I have given the owl’s individual looks and personalities to represent the mixed cultural population in Birmingham and it is safe to say they are having a right hoot.
Yorks Christmas card complete! I added a vintage 1930s feel through the choice of typography and gave the impression of night time through the vibrant lighting inside and the purple hazed snow reflecting the winter night sky.
