This is a papier mâché bird I made last week for my sister's birthday. Except the paste took so long to dry that it was a very belated extra present in the end. Her reaction was "comedy". I'm thinking of making more!


Tea Towels

The other week a friend of my sister's got in touch asking if I'd design a logo/business card/comp slip for her brand new business. It's called Joan and Joseph, and prints lovely tea towels which are available for sale here. I was thrilled to be asked and am really pleased with the design she picked...


Tin Pot Project

My latest DIY project for Small Magazine is up on their blog, here's a picture of the result and you can see the steps to get there here... (they also recently had a new issue out which is very lovely to flick through).

The tins are covered with wrapping paper, and the yellow design is by a folk-art designer whose work I really love - Sanna Annukka.


Make A Wish

Here's another pattern, some friendly candles. It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and my friends got hold of some candles from America which are all different colours and each flame burns the same colour as the wax, they're like magic!! These ones are a bit more standard (well, except the fact they've got faces of course).



Here are yet more Christmas card designs, this time for Tigerprint's latest competition which is for e-cards that can be personalised online. Seeing as my designs weren't picked for the last competition I did, I've reworked a couple of them for this one as they fit in perfectly with the typography theme...


Pretty Pattern

This week's Illustration Friday theme is paisley. I've been meaning to learn how to make a pattern in Photoshop so this was the perfect chance... More patterns to come no doubt!


Ripple Effect

This week's Illustration Friday theme is 'Ripple'. Seeing as it's summer I thought I'd go for the ice cream topping sense of the word!


Poetic License

I've been illustrating some poems for a friend as part of a top-secret project, the nature of which means that these two (a couple of my favourites) might seem a bit bizarre out of context but maybe you can make up your own...!


Breadcrumb Trail

I haven't taken part in Illustration Friday for quite a while, and this week's theme - Trail - stumped me for a while until I thought of the breadcrumb trail Hansel & Gretel leave...


Christmas Cards

This is very seasonally-inappropriate, but I've just entered a Christmas card design competition held by the London Design Festival and the Victoria & Albert Museum with these two entries. The brief was completely open except the colours had to be just red, black and white...
