New York, New York

I'm working on a New York illustration trilogy at the moment; the above is a small section of the first image which I am putting into a silent auction to raise money at an Amnesty International party in a few weeks.

Hope you like!

Another birthday, another illustration...

Happy Birthday Ant! Ant and his wife are a little obsessed with a slightly fat, very hairy trespassing cat called Merlin... so who better to grace his birthday card!

Handmade Jewellery Packs

Happy Birthday to my lovely friend Kristy! And obviously I took the opportunity to turn her birthday present into an art project... I just can't help it; there's a new Hobbycraft store nearby and it keeps calling to me!

Birds and Trees. Circa 1991

Everyone has a few certain things that they LOVE to draw and, as some of you will know, when I am feeling a bit lazy and in the mood for doodling some of my favourite things to decorate a page with are birds and trees.

And the above seems to demonstrate that this obsession started early! I found this drawing when I (finally) moved the last of my things out of my parents' loft a few weekends ago. I was delighted to find this drawing showing that even aged 6 my skill at drawing birds and trees was developing, albeit with stripey trees and birds with disproportionally large heads... Oh, and the details at the bottom of the picture are worms. Obviously.

Tiny Landscape

It's been a busy start to the week and I am exhausted, but here is a little tiny illustration I used as part of a card design over the weekend. And I think I quite like it. Hope you do!

Portraits! Of a kind...

September is a month crammed full of birthday celebrations so I have been busy making cards for various friends and lately I've had quite a bit of funny incorporating portraits of the birthday boys into the designs. The images above are a couple of my favourites- hope you like! And of course, Happy Birthday once again to Nick and Matt!
