Party Ring Illustration - Biscuit Series

Party Ring, April 2014
Pencil, pastel and oil.

So I have started my biscuit series! I have started off with this particular biscuit as I have fond childhood memories of them. It wasn't really a 90's children's birthday party without them! I remember when I was little I liked to lick the hard icing off first and then quickly scoff the rest of the biscuit... or if I could get away with it just eat the icing.

I'll be drawing a selection of biscuits first and then using the illustrations to make items to sell in my Etsy shop! 

Estelle- Baroque Inspired Girl

Estelle, April 2014.
Pencil, Pastel and Gouache. 

Here's the finished Baroque inspired girl, her name is Estelle. This has been uploaded to my Society6 page where you can purchase prints, cushions, phone cases etc. I have all manner of illustrated gifts there now! The original piece of this will also be for sale of Etsy in the next day or so, and I'll post an announcement when that happens!

I have now officially started my Illustration business, so I time to draw and create every single day! There is so much planned for the months ahead, so if you want to keep updated either follow me on here or any of my other Social Media. All the links are on the side of this blog.

My next project is going to be a Biscuit Series. I want to create something that has a strong collection energy, and that suits my illustrative style. I've chosen biscuits as they can be adapted into a who range of gifts, stationary and homeware! Exciting times I know!!

- My obsession with pastel hair.
- An overall pastel theme.

Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly Illustration

Hello! A long time and no posting I know!

Its been a very stressful and busy time for me for the past six months, but events have unfolded recently that means I'll have a bit of time on my hands to draw again.

I chose to draw a bright and colourful butterfly, the Cloudless Sulphur, because it is something I have wanted to do for a while now. I have a small collection of real taxidermy butterflies, and I wanted to recreate that through my illustration.

The actual illustration was made with colouring pencils on neutral paper. 

I then used an Ikea RIBBA box frame in white and suspended the illustration away from the paper. This particular piece is for sale, so feel free to email me or PM me on facebook for more information. In the future I'll be making prints of this butterfly to put into more box frames!

Here is my new piece that I made for my Mum's 50th birthday. 

She requested a blue alien girl, so I took that brief and rolled with it. I think the turning point of the project was when I had the idea to give her pink hair. I was originally going to give her orange hair, but I thought the pink would suit my Mum's tastes more and made the whole thing look really sugary and cute. When I saw that I was going down the ultra cute road I made her eyes really bright and added white freckles.

I have had quite a long break between this piece and the last one I did at the beginning of the year, I've generally been sorting out my life, moving house and finding a new job. Now that I am settled I will be attending to my illustration again.

There will be prints, laptop skins, phone cases and cushions of thins available on my Society6 page.
