Stew Magazine - Issue 4 

Stew Magazine’s fourth edition arrived in the mail this morning and its the best one yet! 
Joe Lillington’s cover illustration is stunning and its nice to see such a strong team of illustrators working for the magazine. 

This is my second spread of Let’s Make and I love that the editor wanted, brighter, bolder colours this time! 
I’m personally really pleased with the spread, its fun and hopefully will encourage children to get creative this summer (I want to make the volcano too!) 

I thought i’d show the rough I sent to the magazine editor, Ali, to show a working process from start to finish! Luckily, not much changed from the beginning concept to the finished product.

Wild Flower Pattern 

I decided on Sunday to ignore the work I had to do and create something new! I’d never tried a proper floral pattern before and wanted to give it a go. I was greatly inspired by wild flowers, they are lush! 
It’s given me a new ability in my portfolio.

Gracie Goose 

Some sneak peeks from Gracie Goose and the Stolen Golden Egg, my first attempt at writing as well as illustrating a picture book. 

Stew Magazine 
This is the new crafts spread for the next issue of Stew Magazine. This time you can learn how to make a fizzy volcano, to funk up your shoes and to make a labyrinth jigsaw!

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost
Here is my second illustration for the Beast! exhibition in June based on quotes and sayings.  This idea came from a pretty rubbish sketch that has evolved while procrastinating! I wanted to create an Indian Princess with a sense of narrative and tried to choose patterns and colour schemes that were relevant.It’s been such a headache and stress, but we’re always told to push ourselves right?!

I Want To Believe 

I’ve just finished a piece for the latest Beast! collective exhibition in which we’ve all chosen quotes to illustrate. 
I recently just watched The X Files for the first time and have become slightly obsessed, and had to illustrate a young Mulder and Scully!

Scully is even wearing a stethoscope!

I went seriously overboard with lots and lots and lots of tiny details in the background, hope they show when it goes to print!

Poshly Printed Greetings Cards!

I’m selling work soon at a festival with illustrator collective, Beast!; and wanted to get some good quality Greetings Cards printed in time to sell. 
Safe to say, these came out much better than I was expecting. 

They are A5, which is pretty big for a greetings card, and the colours have printed really well!
(You can also frame them as a cheap as chips print!)

Magpie That 
Recently I was asked by James, a children’s book blogger of Magpie That  to create a magpie in my style to add to fantastic collection! So many brilliant illustrators have already contributed and I feel honoured to have been asked to take part too!I’ve become slightly obsessed with the hairy birds nests lately.
I will always help with promoting children to read more!

Brooches/Pins

Since things have been picking up as an illustrator, drawing no longer feels as relaxing/enjoyable as it used to. So I decided I needed a hobby to balance out my work/non work life and so I don’t throw my pencils out of the window (again). 

I’ve made quiet a few odds and sods now, and it’s become a really satisfying hobby. Everyone who has seen the pile increasing on my desk of felted creatures has urged that I sell them. To me, I never thought about it! I just do it for fun. 

I’ve decided to do a lucky dip on Etsy and you only pay a fiver and you will get a surprise brooch/pin in the mail!
