A little while ago, the guys from Monsieur Notebook got in touch and asked if I would like to receive a free leather notebook with my artwork engraved on the front cover. Of course, I said absolutely, and here is my finished notebook!
I sent over a selection of illustrations, and the guys ended up choosing 'Mango Sorbet' which I was really happy about. I also adore the deep rich red cover they chose for my notebook. You can see the texture of the engraving a little better in the photo below. I'm so thrilled with my new notebook, it's amazingly unique and I can already tell I'll get a lot of use out of it.

When I sent over my illustrations, I had to transform them into black and white line and block drawings as you can see above. It was actually interesting to see my illustrations in black and white as colour is usually such a big part of what I do. I was incredibly happy with how this one looked though - nice, clean, and simple.
I'm so happy that the guys asked me to take part in this - my notebook is beautiful quality and I'd recommend them to anyone.
In addition to notebooks, Monsieur Notebook also stock sketchpads of various sizes, and they will soon be selling watercolour notebooks too!
