Inspired by the works of Aubrey Beardsley and H.C.Anderson, I decided to go monochrome with this one. Very happy with the result, I'd quite like to do more like this, perhaps based on Greek Mythology :)

Some more felt tip pen experimenting. Getting the colours right on this one was tricky, but layering the blue and the greens worked well in the end with a bit of grey blending over the top! Happy with the way this one turned out, particularly the simple fish.

Having a play around with my trusty Berol felt tip pens the other night, I did this study of a Golden Pheasant (aka Chinese Pheasant).

I love using this medium, I think I'll have to do a few more in the coming weeks :D

Hurry up Summer!

This horrible cold miserable Spring needs to hurry up and pass to some lovely Summer weather! Stat!

Round and round and round we go...

Keeping on the wildlife theme (which I tend to do quite a lot!) here's a pattern I created a while back. Quite a simple process of doing a quartered image, and then rotating it round. I hope to do more of these soon! :D

'Wings' - Illustration Friday

My poor blog has been so neglected recently, however this has been due to me getting a lot more freelance work which is brilliant! Lots of exciting things have been happening and my work style is evolving rapidly! I've also just become an auntie for the first time and started a-new with a gym membership! Been a very busy bee :D

So here's to the first post of 2013 for me, and my first Illustration Friday entry in a LONG time (too long!) a quick moleskine sketch of this heron that took around 15 minutes. I've kept it quite raw and messy as, well, that makes a true sketch right?

If you're eager to see a bit of what I've been up to recently, go to and you'll find my fairly updated portfolio!

Glad to be back though!

If I had a penguin I'd make sure he stayed warm in a little jumper.

Bring on winter!

Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

Christmas card number 2 is done! A festive Swiss inspired cuckoo clock. We had one once, although the cuckoo-ing did get a tad annoying at 3 in the morning... but they're so gorgeous I think it's worth it!

Christmas Carousel

Although it's only October, Christmas is coming up pretty quick. I decided to go all Victorian-esque this year with my card designs, so here's the first one of a carousel horse (or 3!) With the two compositions I have the choice between a square card or a tall thin card, plus I can go over the original drawing but change the pattern or the colours if I feel like it so lots of variations are possible!
