Now seven things about me! This could potentially be quite boring!
1) I used to work in a high school as a Learning Support Assistant and it was insane. 2) I have a degree in Drama and Theatre Studies. 3) I don't actually own a tv at the moment! 4) My favourite artist is Kurt Jackson. 5) I once directed a play that was shown at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 6) I am a geek, and like to play MMO's such as WoW! 7) My favourite book is The Secret History by Donna Tartt. xxx
Just a really quick post to show you this illustration I made in Photoshop. I really loved the golden hair pieces at the Comme des Garcon show, they looked really unusual! Go and check out the other looks if you have time :) x
Last week, Tor from Fab Frocks World asked me to design the header for the relaunch of her blog/website! This is what I came up with - I hope you all like it. It was a really fun project; Tor was lovely to work with, and gave me lots of helpful input.
Just a really quick post today! Thank you for all of your lovely comments lately, I really appreciate every single one I get. This is just a simple watercolour. I've messed around a little with it in photoshop, but I might re-visit it at a later date.
I will probably put the original up on my Etsy store at some point :)
This is a mini canvas that I finished yesterday, partly inspired by Kate Moss. I primed the canvas first with a thick layer of acrylic which has given it a really textural look, and I'll probably experiment with this technique again in the future.
I sold my other little mini canvas a few days ago so I will probably be putting this one on my Etsy too! I was super pleased :)
This is a little feature that I've been thinking about starting for a while. I'm going to be doing some blogger portraits of some of my favourite blogs - I'm sure you will all be very familiar with most of them, but I still thought it would be a nice idea.
I've been reading Gem's blog for ages! She seems really friendly, and always has the most awesome nail art.
I would be interested in finding out who all your favourite bloggers are too, so let me know :)
This is just a little portrait inspired by Lindsey Wixson. I really like her - I think she looks very doll-like.
I just wanted to let you all know that I'm having a little sale over at my Etsy shop. So if you are looking to pick up a bargain, then check it out. There's a couple of original paintings on there at the moment, and they are all pretty cheap!
I will also be announcing the giveaway winner next week (probably Monday/Tuesday) so remember to look out for that :)
This is fairly different to what I usually do, but it's for a competition I saw on the Talenthouse website. The brief is to design a poster for the children's production of 'My First Sleeping Beauty' for the English National Ballet.
I tried to make it look as appealing to children as possible, whilst still capturing the essence of the classic story. If you want to support me, just click here.
Firstly I just want to say hello to all my new followers, and thank you for entering my giveaway!
This is a mini canvas I have been working on lately, and I will probably put it on my Etsy shop. This was done in acrylic and pen, which made a cool change from just working in watercolour. Sometimes, it feels so awkward to go back to painting with acrylic, but I feel as if I'm getting used to it now.
I don't know if you have seen this film, but I thought the concept was kind of interesting, and visually it looked awesome. This illustration is based on the 'Baby Doll' character, so I hope you all like it!
I just wanted to thank everyone that has entered my giveaway - I was so surprised to see so many entries! There's still time to enter, so I do hope you will.
I saw this photo on one of the Wildfox lookbook's which I'm sure some of you have seen already, and thought it would make a cool illustration! I had a good play around in photoshop with this one, I think im slowly starting to learn how to use the software properly.
