The sequel to Superstar Kids is now OUT! I spent this entire year working hard on the illustrations for this book with the goal to make them better than the last, I really feel I have achieved that! I am very proud of myself for publishing my second book and there is other books in the pipeline for next year, so keep an eye out! Onwards and upwards 🙂
Something I’ve been working on and experimenting with a new style and way of colouring. Also I uploaded before the end of November so it still counts as Autumn!
In keeping with my challenge, here is my October ID design! Inspired by my trip to the Lavender Fields back in August! I used ink and copics here to also go with my inktober challenge! I will collate all images from this year and 2016 on to a page soon so keep a look out 🙂
Many new updates to my shop on Society6 including stickers, backpacks and new tote bags plus tons more! Check it out 🙂
I have been volunteering with a company called You Press over the summer to help create a website called ScribersHive. A place that gives young people (or anybody!) a voice and a place to express their opinions or creativity. I helped create posters promoting the website’s release, the logos for the podcast “Hidden Voices” and the “Comics” section – which I also have created a comic for inspired by one of the articles.
Please take a look and feel free to contribute if you want to: https://scribershive.com/
Thank you very much!
There was a problem with uploading this last month but here you are and it includes a plus one where I celebrated the first day of Autumn!
Aside from the long term commissions for illustrating children’s book, I have also taken on a couple of short term commissions. These were both for the same client (and old friend!) both portraits were birthday presents – what could be more of a surprise and a unique gesture than giving an illustrated portrait!
I would like to update you on what I’ve been doing for the past few months of 2017. As well as doing personal ventures, I have been illustrating 2 books – working on the sequel to ‘Superstar Kids’ and a new title called ‘The Adventurers’. I have been volunteering as an Artist at Paddington Arts, a local youth centre which I have been going to since I was a child so I am very happy to be giving back to them! AND a collaboration painting with Annette Fernando, this was for the 24 Hearts project in tribute for Grenfell Tower and in time for Carnival.
I have definitely been the busy bee, have a look below to find some of the recently finished pieces. I am very proud of what I have achieved so far, to see progression in my art style and way of working is very satisfying and I aim to keep this up!
It’s taken me a while longer to create this month’s ID as I’ve been busy with numerous projects!
All will be revealed come September 🙂
