Animal Spirits: Fox


I got inspired again by Amelia's 'That Which We Do Not Understand' brief (and also an episode of Voyager!) so I decided to make a new series based on animal spirits. The next one I've got planned is a super cute bat. 

Strangely, after I'd already created this illustration, my boyfriend bought me this really sweet game called Never Alone and as soon as I started playing it, it called to mind this illustration, so maybe I'll do an arctic fox piece too!

Interstellar


I went to see Interstellar in the IMAX this past weekend and it was jaw-clenchingly good! The soundmix/score just made everything seem really intense and unnerving - definitely recommended!

mousedogbaby!



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!

Tauriel

"She walks in starlight in another world."

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?

A Header for Beauteaparty!

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.
