    I think it was a month ago, I got a lovely e-mail from my agent to be offering me an opportunity to illustrate a picture book. This was obviously mind blowingly amazing and I was very excited.
    I got given the script and worked closely with the author whilst quickly rummaging up these two spreads.
    Sadly it wasn’t meant to be and it fell through. The publisher loved my work however didn’t find the story marketable.
    But at least I can show you what i’ve been up to now!

    Sometimes (a lot of the time) it takes a while for these jobs to kick off properly.

  • Field Mice

    I feel bad that I can’t post much at the moment!
    I’m at that annoying stage where i’m working on lots of great things, but can’t really show any of it!!
    For now here’s a snippet for a colouring book I’m going to be pitching with my agent soon.

    Mothers Day

    So in the UK it’s Mothers Day at the end of the month!
    This was my first attempt to design a Mothers Day card, i’m quite fond of it! It’s very sweet and mushy, but hey, why not?

    If you do like it and need a Mothers Day card, they’re available on my Etsy :)

  • Mug Trade

    After looking at the title of this blog post, I suddenly realise how British this concept is!
    Talented illustrator/Designer and Twitter friend Louise Wright and I are both selling our own designs on mugs currently. We decided to do a trade of each others, to show each other’s work off and to own something lovely too!

    Louise is one of my favourite illustrators on Twitter. Watching her work develop has been an absolute joy and there’s no doubt she’s going places!

    If you’d be interested in Louise’s mug or any of her other products, please look here

    Also if you’re interested in my my mug, please look here

  • Pinocchio

    The collective I am part of, Beast!; are having their first exhibition at the start of March! We decided that we wanted to exhibit work based on a theme and we chose Penguin Classics to illustrate. After much deliberating (so much choice!), I chose Pinocchio! It was so much fun re-reading the original novel, and it’s so disturbing compared to the Disney adaptation that everyone remembers so well!

    So these are my pieces inspired by the novel for the exhibition, for the rabbits you’ll just have to read the book and see what happens ;)
