Interview

Apologies for the lack of posts, I went on holiday to Japan and have come back fuelled with inspiration and more projects in the pipeline. I am also working on a vlog of my trip there so watch this space!

My friend Devina runs her own travel blog website and has started a segment called ‘Fab Friends’ and has interviewed me! You can read it here:

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!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
