Violet & Ted's Eggcellent Adventure!

Well, here it is! Jennie and I have been working on this little story for a while now and I'm so pleased to be able to share it with you. Jennie has written a beautiful story to accompany my illustrations and I really hope you enjoy it! 

We'd both love to know what you think of it, so please do leave your comments below! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I still have loads of chocolate left, so it's technically still Easter, right?

Happy Easter, Bunnies!

Happy Easter guys! I hope you all have a lovely long weekend. I knew I wanted to create an Easter themed post (aside from V&T) however I wanted to do something a little different so I thought I'd have a go at making some bunny patterns. They are surrounded by all of their favourite Easter treats! I didn't realise bunnies enjoy eating rose petals, but apparently they do - maybe you can treat your pet this weekend. Anyway, have any of you got any fun plans? I've already partially destroyed a white chocolate egg!

New Things!

I thought I'd put a bit of a post together to show you some of the latest commissions I've been working on! Some really lovely girls have been in touch over the past few weeks on Gemma's amazing recommendation (thank you Gemma!) so I've had some fun projects to work on. 

Firstly, I created this banner for the lovely Tiffany who was super sweet to me! She runs a beauty blog and her latest post is Queen Elsa inspired makeup so I'm sure lots of people will appreciate that.
 Next up, I made this illustration for Indy who blogs over at The Fabulosity Factor. Indy pretty much let me do whatever I wanted, her only specification is that she wanted her adorable cat Luna included, how could I refuse! She's so cute.

Lastly, I created this banner for the amazing Laura! Laura asked for a pretty dressing up table with a very girly vibe, which I think we managed to achieve pretty well! 

I'm really grateful to all of these ladies for commissioning me; and if you'd like an illustration for your blog or website, feel free to get in touch anytime.

P.S. Stay tuned for the latest Violet & Ted story, we'll have it with you asap!

Game of Thrones is now back on our screens, so of course this meant I had to draw some cute baby dragons! After I had finished, I realised that some of them look a little like Moomins. I haven't had a chance to watch the new episode yet, so no spoilers please! I've added this to my Society6 store and it's available on bags, cushions, and t-shirts. You can also get free delivery and $5 off most items at the moment if you click this link! I've ordered myself a Ponyo t-shirt so I'll be sure to show you what it looks like when it arrives.

Miss Makeup Magpie: New Banner!

I was very excited when Gemma commissioned me to create her new blog header the other week, but so nervous too as I really loved her old one! We wanted to keep the idea of a branch, but we decided on having a couple of magpies instead of just one so it looks like a little family nesting in the cherry blossom tree! Gemma was so sweet to me throughout the whole process, she was very flexible and helpful - I really loved creating this piece for her. 

Thank you for asking me to do this, Gemma! I'm so glad that you're happy with the finished result. 

If you'd like to commission a special illustration for your blog, feel free to get in touch with me anytime.

Ohh Deer

I decided to enter my Ponyo illustration into the current Ohh Dear competition. I'd really appreciate it if you could check out the page and maybe like or share my entry to help me out a little! The design is even available to buy whilst the competition is on-going - pretty cool! You can view my entry here. I believe the competition runs until the 21st of April if you'd like to take part too; I might even try to submit a couple more designs if I get the chance. Thanks guys!

Ponyo's Sisters

Ah, I really love Ponyo! It's such a happy anime and I could watch it time and time again. If you've never seen it, it's about a little goldfish girl who swims away from home and meets a little boy called Sosuke. The two become friends and Ponyo uses her magic to transform herself into a human (it's based on the idea of 'The Little Mermaid'). Ponyo has hundreds of goldfish sisters, so I decided to make an illustration featuring them! 

I'd love to know what you think! Do you have a favourite anime movie?
