cards and christmas fair stuff~

last Saturday, a group of us Illustration students from Middlesex helped out at the Walthamstow Art Fair selling lots of Christmas goodies from cards, to tags, to decorations and our advent calendar. It was a fun day and we raised quite a bit for our Degree show : )!

As featured on my banner currently, I produced a set of dapper dandy animals cards alongside other things for the fair~

I've been experimenting with drawing with pencils as advised from my third year tutor, and so far I'm really liking them with simple watercolour <3 I hope to continue this style alongside my pen and ink work. I hope you like the cards, we managed to sell out on all of them so I am quite chuffed : ) x


It's nearly Christmas and my year are doing an annual and advent calendar to sell at our Christmas Fair, please check out our Facebook event page and feel free to come along : )

I volunteered to do the month September and I did number 2 for the advent, here are my submissions, I hope you like them x

summer project

this is a very late post, sorry that I've been so dormant recently but here is my summer project for the third year! The brief was to create a body of work that represented what type of Illustrator we saw ourselves as in the future, I decided to create a nursery rhyme book as I've always loved rhymes and fairytales; and then continued using my pen and ink with watercolour technique that I've taken a liking to over my course : ).

Humpty Dumpty was my favourite character : ), in my project I tried to incorporate some of my slightly surreal and sinister character drawing into these classic rhymes to add a twist, I hope you enjoy the illustrations x.

(and I apologise for the not-so-great photography here..)
