Sept ID

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!

Portrait Commissions

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!

Projects Progression

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!

July ID

Here is the new July ID! I’ve been meaning to draw an image like this for over a year, but I just didn’t have the means and understanding of how to portray it at the time. I had a brain blast recently and with the constant practice, it has really helped me to improve and create this piece 🌺. A tip for aspiring artists – keep copying poses and pictures you like to really grasp the style and then you’ll develop your own out of this. Find your niche!

This is inspired by Lianne La Havas’ song ‘Unstoppable’ and her album cover for ‘Blood’.

Pink Lars

Pink Lars from the recent Steven Universe hour special. Lars’ character has always been somewhat irritating to me in the series, but I absolutely loved seeing his moments of vulnerability where he struggled being himself. It just goes to show acceptance starts within and I always love that Steven Universe has these amazing life lessons to teach young children.

I wasn’t expecting Pink Lars to happen! But I absolutely loved it and it has solidified my love for Lars’ character, things are looking up for him.

May ID 2017

May ID illustration – Aliyah and Moana fusion in celebration of completing my cosplay and I shall be attending London Comic Con dressed as her! I hope the weather is gorgeous for it too 🙂

Commission Status: Closed

Hey all! Just updating you to let you know that my commissions are currently closed, this includes the Fivesquid service. I have many commissions to be getting on with already and including children’s books to illustrate. I will update once I am available again soon. 🙂

Thanks all!

April ID 2017

This month’s new ID design. Bubbles and poofy buns which gives off a nice element of class I think! The challenge has been really fun so far, I really look forward to do drawing each month’s one. I also believe doing inktober last year really broke the ice to enable me to draw something everyday. Progression is key and I really feel and see my style progressing with this challenge 🙂
