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.

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.
