Life imitates art

My good friend Kaylie and I (@girlwiththeredbob on instagram) went out around South Kensington on the hunt for Wisterias and I really wanted to imitate an illustration I had drawn months ago. It had just so happened to fall in to place that whilst just popping in to H&M they had a tshirt design so similar to the one I drew (and I still would like my design to get made!) and Wisterias are a beautiful purple colour, I just had to make it real!

Yara Shahidi

She is beautiful, inspiring and a great role model to look up to. It’s Yara Shahidi!

Lavender Girl

I was wandering through the darkness and then followed the light in to a vast garden and grew myself some lavender. That heavenly, calming scent and its purple, ethereal appearance; it was me growing a new home for myself.

I’m planning to animate more and create more illustrative pieces, I have a lot of ideas and projects in the pipeline. I can not wait to show you!

World Book Day 2018

A small and sweet animation I did to commend World Book Day 2018. Reading has become an important part of my life and I now freelance as an illustrator for children’s books! Also an excuse to dress up (but I didn’t today because of the snow!)

Things not to say to cosplayers bbc3

So back in November 2017 I did some filming with BBCThree for their ‘Things Not to Say to Cosplayers’ episode! It was so much fun to do, an exciting and quite nerving experience too, but never did I think that from me just planning out the creation of my Moana costume this time last year would get me to here! I’m really proud of myself for doing this, I usually shy away from the camera but it’s so important to capture these kind of moments – it’s definitely a stepping stone for me. Watch out for more cosplays in future! Enjoy the video, it was good fun to do 🙂

Web Design

I did my first web design project for my local beauty salon. It was a lot of fun! I was able to put my perfectionist ways in to good use, it was also nice to do something different from drawing. Graphic design is all about visual communication, getting the message instantly to your audience and keeping the design consistent.

I also recommend them if you live in the local area!
