P and Z

I finally finished a couple more of the illustrations for my obscure animals alphabet. The pangolin, and the zebu.


Land Ahoy!


A recent trip to Flamborough Head inspired me to do some lighthouse illustrations.  They’re all done using the pen tool, line tool and shape tool in Illustrator.

B is for Binturong

I recently discovered that not everyone knows what a binturong is, so I decided to start an alphabet of obscure (and awesome) animals.

I decided to do some fashion illustration based on fairytales.  This is the first one I’ve finished, based on Little Red Riding Hood.  I used the pen tool to create the tree shapes and laid them over a wood texture and then applied a clipping mask.  The background was created using a speckled, aged texture I found; I used Photoshop to change the colour and then reduced the opacity to create a misty, snowy feel.  I used my Wacom Tablet to draw the figure, based on a photograph.

Pop-up Vintage Fair

On Saturday I had a stall at the Pop-up Vintage Fair at the Beverley Arms Hotel.  It was really fun and a great way to get feedback about my work.  I got a lot of positive comments about my illustration and sold a fair bit too!



News, news, news

So much going on at the moment, I haven’t had time to blog!  My bird bags and fashion prints are now in the Artlink shop on Princes Avenue.  I will also have a stall at the Pop Up Vintage Fair at the Beverley Arms Hotel on November 17th were I’ll be selling all the products in my Etsy shop and more!

Anyway, here’s a picture of a bicycle.  I drew it using the Pen Tool in Illustrator and I’ve been using it to make cards and bags.
