Tall giraffe
For this week’s illustration Friday (…leaving it slightly late- whoops!)

Here’s one of my older illustrations: a very very tall giraffe! (I’ve definitely got to get back into the cross hatching.)
Website is going well, keep an eye out for the new page- not too long hopefully!

Illustration Friday: Suspend

July 9, 2012 § 3 Comments


Suspend is this week’s illustration Friday, It feels like a long time since I’ve had the time for an I.F. as I’ve been busy with the Boy and the Bunnet launch and the next design for the Queen’s Hall Theatre! So anyway this week here’s a huuuuge humpback whale being lifted away through the clouds, suspended by some balloons. It’s quite a mixed media piece with a bit of pen, ink and watercolour.

Thanks so much for dropping by! xx

Illustration Friday: Jump

Okay so I’ve already done an Illustration Friday today.. but the first one didn’t count.. maybe!
..I think I must be feeling super crafty at the moment.

I’ve painted this little dude in my boyfriend’s lovely Citadel paints (..awesome shades like ‘bubonic brown’!)
This grasshopper is getting ready to jump off the page!

Thanks for looking!

This is one not quite so conventional, little owl painting!

Right now I’m painting a pretty little owl using my boyfriend’s Citadel paints…
so that’s ‘Chaos Black’ for the eyes, ‘Vomit Brown’ for the feet and ‘Rotting Flesh’ for the feathers! .. Lovely!:)
I should probably put the paintbrush down now though, bedtime!
Night all! xx

A is for Axolotl

The start of the new Animal Oddities Alphabet? I wonder what B should be!
(I’m loving this whole ‘spare time’ thing! I’m enjoying it while it lasts!)

This is an axolotl (Pronounced like ‘ack-suh-lah-tuhl’)
They’re a type of  near extinct aquatic salamander,
but they never actually grow out of their metamorphic stage as they have
a condition called ‘neoteny’. (so they essentially stay like tadpoles, how cute!)
They’re particularly fascinating because they can regenerate …
so their limbs can grow back. This one is known as a melanoid albino!

(Some random animal facts for you!)

Good night everyone!

Illustration Friday: Shades

March 17, 2012 § 13 Comments

So.. Everything’s over and I’ve finally managed to have a weekend all to myself! (Spare time is like gold dust at the moment!) I’ve doodled an adorable red panda chillaxing in the shade for Illustration Friday and also because of the completion of all my current projects, including the Boy and the Bunnet! (You can buy the book  here!) So anyway this red panda kind of feels  a bit like a self portrait right now! I’m off now to enjoy the fleeting sunshine! (Spring’s nearly here!) xx
