Poorly Pirate!

I am currently working on updating my portfolio (long overdue) and wanted to produce a quick editorial image for a kids magazine. After perusing the interweb this morning for a suitable subject, I came across an online mag for kids with lots of great inspiration for illustrations.

I love pirates and this artical (written by Dr. Bennet) about all their nasty diseases seemed like a perfect choice. It made me quite sad to draw this guy, soon to be residing in Davy Jones's Locker.

Norton Priory Gardens

I was given a brief at the beginning of the year to produce illustrations for a family guide book for Norton Priory. I received the finished book in the post a couple of weeks ago and I am delighted with the final outcome!

It was my first attempt at an illustrated map, which was a pretty complicated and time consuming process. It is nice to see it printed with all the labels and symbols added in, I am really happy with it.

It was great to work with writer Elizabeth Newbery again.

Rainbow Animal Tower!

Red Horse, Orange Fox, Yellow Cat, Green Rabbit and Blue mouse all think YOU ARE ACE. So there.

More monsters join the family!

This happy little family of monsters will soon become a groovy set of greetings cards. Watch this space and you can soon take them all home for a cup of tea and a joke.
