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:
She is beautiful, inspiring and a great role model to look up to. It’s Yara Shahidi!
Beyonce was the first black female artist to headline at Coachella and her performance was AMAZING! I wanted to create an illustration to celebrate such a great moment and appreciate the Queen Bey herself!
You can find a speed painting video of the illustration process here: https://youtu.be/lG2wv2a6c58
The animation for my first collab with talented UK rapper Civil (with many more to come!) I am excited and proud to show this to you! I really wanted to get back in to animating again and 2018 is the beginning of it! So watch this space.
Presenting Civil’s amazing ‘The Garden EP’ which can be found and downloaded here: https://fanlink.to/Civil
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!
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!)
A new icon I made just for fun! Probably will use it on my CV and invoices as branding decor. Would also make a really cute tropical garment pattern!
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 🙂
