This is my latest commission work which was finished just a few days ago! I think this is probably one of my favourites to date as it's just a little different. It was commissioned by Rebecca who blogs over at mousedogbaby, Rebecca is fairly new to the blogging community but she's already got quite the following! Her blog is primarily about herself (of course!) her cute baby, Iris and her dog, Seb. As a family they like to get out and about and that's why we chose to feature the mountainous background. Rebecca was so sweet to work with, she gave me plenty of information which made my life much easier, and I'd be delighted to work with her again in the future!
The new Hobbit movie will be hitting our screens soon (yay!) so in honor of that I decided to create an illustration inspired by Tauriel. I was a little dubious of her at first, but she quickly became one of my favourites - she's just great! I'm really glad they decided to create her character for the franchise. So anyway, for my illustration I took inspiration from Kili's quote "She walks in starlight in another world" but I also wanted it to be a little different and unexpected. I've used a limited palette (I'll stop talking about this soon, I promise!) and lots of space/galaxy elements. Are you a Hobbit/Tauriel fan too?
This cute illustration is a banner I worked on for Anouska who has just rebranded her blog into 'beauteparty' - pretty cool name I think! I also made a button and signature for her, you can take a look at her blog here! I'm really quite happy with how this banner turned out in the end; I think we pretty much had it finished in one day from sketch to final product which was brilliant. The teapot and gingerbread man are probably my favourite elements, I'd probably be too sad to eat him in real life though.
So, this idea popped into my head a couple of days ago, and seeing as I've not really done anything like it before I thought it would be good practice! It's based on one of the most iconic scenes from The Lion King (of course!) and it's my take on a new baby greetings card. The baby looks like a pretty cool dude in my opinion. I'd love to know what you think. Would you buy this if you saw it in a shop? I think the text and decal would look nice if they were embossed maybe!
