New Work for Red Magazine

Hello and Happy New Year (is it still ok to say that on 17th?) I worked on a couple of projects in the run-up to Christmas that I'm waiting for publication before I can share, so in the mean time here's a couple of recent illustrations for Rosie Green's column in Red Magazine.

 

The woes of using Instagram and trying to take the perfect selfie (all the more difficult when your phone memory is from with pictures of your children's guinea pigs).  nb. I think this is the first time I've ever drawn a guinea pig...

Festive piece for Red Magazine

I created a new piece for Rosie Green's column in Red recently, this month was about surviving the annual tree decorating with a family. The piece features some of the decorations made by Rosie's children - a one-eyed father christmas and 'baby cheesus'

Inspiration for my own Christmas tree - Edward Scissorhands.

It sometimes feels like a bit of a contradiction when I create most of my client work digitally, but I use a sketchbook and 'analog' materials for drawing when I'm out and about, as I love drawing from life. I also enjoy trying out new materials and finding out what products other illustrators and artists recommend (if you're into that kind of thing Illustrator Kendayll Hillegas has a very thorough materials/equipment list which worth a look.) 

Today I'm sharing some of the materials I carry with me when I'm not at the studio and how I use them. I also share my sketchbook work on my Instagram stories if you want to take a look. ...
