The follow up to Being a Bee and Being a Butterfly, this is my artwork for the first spread of Being a Ladybird for Wayland books.
Another personal piece. I’d love to work on some more wildlife illustrations, I’m at my happiest in nature! Using a little more texture than usual in this one.
I enjoyed getting back into some pattern making recently, these were inspired by marsh plants.
I loved working on a poster for Bristol’s Tobacco Factory. They wanted a lively scene showing all the different aspects of the venue to celebrate their 25th anniversary in May.
A big change for me this year has been starting to use an iPad to create work. Here are some of my personal pieces created in Procreate.
I made my first ever gif! Can’t wait to add some movement to more of my artwork.
Thought I’d try my hand at some character studies. Pretty pleased with how these foxes came out!
To start off 2019, here’s some work I did last year for a financial services client, and can finally share! I enjoyed the restriction of using a limited colour palette that the client provided.
Some pages from the Being a Butterfly book which arrived this week!
I can finally share some spreads from my second picture book, Being a Butterfly! The follow up to Being a Bee, this is the second in a series of four about different mini beasts. This book follows the life cycle of a Holly Blue butterfly. Published by Wayland, it's available now!
I forgot to post this at the time but here's my map that was featured inside the YA novel Lily's Mountain that I illustrated the cover for last year. Interesting to work in black and white for a change!
I'm delighted to reveal my cover illustrations for a further seven Sophie Kinsella titles. Following the success of the bestselling My Not So Perfect Life in 2017, I was commissioned to illustrate the main characters for her seven standalone novels. Surprise Me recently topped the UK book charts. Published by Penguin Random House.
Very much looking forward to the publication of my second children's book for Hachette in July, Being a Butterfly! It's been months of work and I'll be starting on the third in the series very soon - which minibeast will feature next time?!
