Hello again!

October 22, 2016 § Leave a comment

Wow it’s been such a long time since I posted, about three years! A lot has happened since then, but as I’m having a website overhaul I feel that I should start reblogging too!

The latest exciting news is that a delicious Edinburgh Gin flavour has been released just in time for Christmas, and I was delighted to Illustrate it for The Spencerfield Spirit Company. I’m so happy with how the label has printed and turned out with the gold foil on the logo. I also love that textured canvas effect on the label.

Looking forward to trying this one- it sounds so yummy!


I’ll post and blog more soon!

Illustration Fri: Puzzled

April 13, 2012 § 8 Comments

For this weeks illustration Fri I thought I’d pop up this image!
This is an illustration from one of my books called ‘My Troublesome Cloud‘  (click to see more of Celio’s adventures with his cloud on blurb.com!) this page shows Celio being followed (and hailed on) by his ‘rain of terror’ and he’s completely puzzled as to why it’s always there and won’t leave him alone!

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

House martin

A House Martin returning to her baby chicks

For this week’s Illustration Fri I doodled a house martin returning to her baby chicks to feed them (one of them is pretty full already though!)I wanted to experiment with backgrounds this week and try a different approach to mark making with my fineliner.

If you like my print you can buy it in my etsy shop here! http://www.etsy.com/listing/96692172/returning-home

Thanks for taking a peek!

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

It was great to get out over the weekend and get a little bit of Vitamin D! We headed to Whitepost Farm in Nottingham (a completely lovely petting zoo!) I took far too many photos and we fed many many adorable animals.
I’ve attached a photos of just a few of the highlights!

I’ll be uploading some doodles very soon- sorry I’ve been so elusive, I’ve been a crazily busy bee!
Maybe I’ll even have time to do an illustration Friday!

Boy & the Bunnet (LIVE!) & Queen’s Hall Theatre

Poster B&TB
It’s so much fun spotting Neil everywhere in scotland! 

( I can’t believe that I actually subliminally coordinate with my illustrations!)

WOW I had such a wonderful weekend at TB&TB musical last weekend!

It was fantastic hearing the live music in connection with the book-
it actually brought me and my friend to tears, it was so beautiful!

Whilst I was up in that neck of the woods, I also got to take a quick peek at my latest illustration for Queen’s Hall Theatre!
Really happy with how the illustration of the violin came out on the
banners along the building wall and on the brochures too!

Violin Display for Queen’s Hall

Also, I FINALLY set up a tumblr account!
Yay! So now you can follow/add/question,
(or whatever it is you do on tumblr.. as it’s all alien to me right now!)
and say Hi! You can visit me here! <(click me!)

Sorry for the rather eclectic post!
Life is rather hectic at the mo!
Night night all!

One for Sorrow, Two for Joy…

October 18, 2011 § Leave a comment

One for Sorrow..

One for Sorrow, Two for Joy, Three for a Girl, Four for a Boy, Five for Silver, Six for Gold, Seven for a Secret Never to be Told, Eight for a Message from Over the Sea…

Where I’m living right now is magpie, heron and crow country, but over  the weekend I spotted a huge amount of magpies, I was lucky enough to have my camera nearby and take some beautiful snaps before they all flew away.

On a random note, before I got here I also had a great fascination with silverfish as I hadn’t ever seen one, and I spotted one in my bathroom recently so I took the opportunity to take some photos of something that’s so alien to me!

I named him Farthing..

 And to end on a much sunnier note, I took some beautiful photographs of stormy skies with a rainbow from my window.  I’ve been dedicating so much time on full time work and my private commissions I’ve not had much time to do any personal work. I’ll do an illustration Friday on here again soon I promise!

Somewhere over the rainbow..

I’ll be back soon with doodles and drawings!

Davenport Creative Agency Preview Evening!

October 13, 2011 § Leave a comment

Wow what a mouthful! ^

Life’s been pretty hectic recently! I’m working on several different commissions at the moment and I’ll hopefully have something to show you very soon!  I went to my first of 6 weekly life drawing classes tonight,  it was a big challenge actually and I felt like it’d been forever since I got the charcoal out, but it just takes a little time to get back into it. Looking forward to next week’s class already, it’s nice to get away from the computer screen! If I’m feeling brave I might pop some images up… maybe…

Anywho my new creative agency’s gallery has moved and reopened in Nottingham! The preview was last Friday and what a fantastic night it was! The new space is completely beautiful, I’ve popped a few photos up by fantastic photographer Jake Jakiewicz  (thanks very much!!) which I’ve borrowed from here. You can see my original screenprint cushions and my book Vulpes & Vulpes in the odd image! He’s taken some brilliant photos of the night’s events, but be sure to check out his portfolio too!
