A New String to the Bow

I've recently started a job designing graphics for websites. The sites are for Primary Schools who want something illustrative to add a bit of fun to their websites. My first site has been a challenge as I am finding my feet, and has taken much longer than anticipated, but I'm hoping to get quicker as I get more used to the way they have to be put together. Here are a couple of details from my illustrations. I will post the link to the finished website once it is live.

I finally finished my pirate themed illustration for my portfolio. Here it is in all it's shiny glory. The hermit crab is based on a crab i recently met in Thailand. I think he was called Gerald.

These are some character sketches for a Pirate themed illustration which I am currently working on for my portfolio. I had lots of fun putting together a Pinterest board for this project. I find it a really useful tool for gathering reference and inspiration, although it's so easy to get lost in a world of lovely pictures! I tried to choose bright, exciting colours for this illustration as I am aiming it at young children. I was attempting to create a limited pallet, however I have pretty much used every colour in the rainbow so wasn't quite successful there. I just really like all the colours!
