I've been thinking about animating illustrations, so decided to give it a go in a very basic way, to use on the homepage of my website. Pixar has nothing to fear as yet!!


News Agent

I've been very excited this week about having just signed up with the great illustration agency Lemonade Illustration. My portfolio isn't on their website yet, but I thought I'd share a few of the illustrators represented by them that I particularly like...

Another Cuppa

I'm pattern-crazy and really enjoying doing them! Here are tea cups, and I have my sights set on fairy cakes next.


Three, Two, One

Hmmm, the days of posting an illustration every day seem very distant... but in the interest of more frequent blogging, here's a new pattern to kick start things!!


Summer Sale

Seeing as all the shops are having crazy summer sales, I thought I would do the same. So, for the rest of July there's 25% off everything in my Etsy shop. If you've had your eye on any of my dolls, bears or ltd edition prints, now's the time to buy!  Also, I'm planning to stock up with some new items next month, so watch this space...



This week's Illustration Friday theme is Giant. This is the first time I've had something relevant that I'd already done - one I prepared earlier in true Blue Peter fashion! This big friendly giant is one of a series of illustrations that go with some brilliant children's poems that a friend has written...


Pushing The Envelope

Have you heard of Envelop? It's an online shop where illustrators/designers can upload designs that can then be bought by the public and printed on demand onto cushions, tote bags, aprons and more. There are all sorts of cool designs on there. I've been meaning to try it out for ages, and have got my first cushion design up now.
