  • Stew Magazine 

    The other day I received the third issue of Stew Magazine. A magazine for curious children. 
    I’ve blogged about them before as i’ve been illustrating for the magazine since the first issue back in January. 

    However, this time the editor of Stew asked for me to illustrate a different spread as an illustrator had dropped out last minute, which I couldn’t resist. It was a really fun challenge and was great to creative something quite attractive in such a short amount of time! 

    I always go on about it, but I cannot tell the world enough how brilliant Stew Magazine is. It’s a great read for children, with a perfect mix of stories, puzzles and news and it is executed beautifully.

    There are many fantastic illustrators who create amazing work, so it’s worth looking at for an artistic point of view as well.  

    I’m always very proud to be part of the Stew Family! 

  • Tough Cookie

    I can now finally announce that I am illustrating my first ever published picture book written by the talented Kate Louise  and published worldwide with Skyhorse Publishing USA . 

    It’s such exciting news and couldn’t be happier. I’m incredibly thankful for my agent Isabel, who has been so helpful and supportive of me. It’s been less than a year since I graduated from University, fingers crossed that this is just the start for a career as a children’s book illustrator! 

    The book is published worldwide from fall 2015 

  • Gracie Goose

    Speculative work about a goose who discovers a golden egg and steals it, claiming that she laid it herself.

    Tried to push myself out of my comfort zone for this spread in terms of perspective, texture and composition. Trying very hard in general to vary the look of spreads, which I find difficult sometimes!

  • Hooray!

    An illustration I sketched for fun and people on Twitter seemed to love (a lot more than I thought anyone would), So I found some time to create it.
    Thinking of popping on my Etsy as a greetings card.

  • Scout

    Anyone follow ‘Daily Doodle’ on Twitter?
    The theme today was #GirlInCostume . I instantly thought of Scout in To Kill A Mockingbird.
    I adore Scout as a character, her and Atticus and classic characters,

  • Green Deer

    I’ve recently started a new hobby which is needle felting. It’s great fun and something creative to do now that illustration feels too much like work sometimes!
    My second felt creation was a deer in a green t-shirt (why not?) and I got a great suggestion about drawing him.
    I’ve had great fun creating a spread about him, for some reason I imagined him fishing.

  • The Life Aquatic

    I’m currently awaiting a few e-mails regarding work so I decided to start the next Beast Norwich exhibition work. We are all going to illustrate quotes and I chose Wes Anderson quotes as i’m a huge fan.

    His films are full of such personality and I was excited to put my own spin on The Life Aquatic!

  • New Website!

    Today, I worked my backside off and got myself into the 21st century with a brand spanking, proper website!
