Round up of recent commissions

  I’ve been a busy bee with a new course at the House of Illustration, learning how to make children’s picture books alongside commissions and commercial illustration work. It’s been a brilliant couple of months and I’ve loved every minute! I can’t show you the commercial work yet, but here are one or two recent […]

Bespoke Christmas cards

Now that my Christmas cards have been delivered I can finally talk about another exciting project I’ve been working on, designing a special Christmas card for ACE Training, a construction training centre in Oxford.

Sophia in the woods

My idea was to do a comic strip style for the kids version, and a light, fun, illustrative one for the main poster. […]

I’ve been working on a bit of branding and graphic design for a new company launching in Rutland in the New Year, illustrating a Christmas card for a construction training centre and designing a tattoo for the lovely […]

Mary Poppins

My Grandma is 84 today! She is the centre of our family unit and we love her dearly. Two good things have coincided with Grandma (Great Gran)’s birthday, one I have a new printer, and two, Mary Poppins is coming to Leicester Curve… Cue a happy Friday night pulling together a quick card design for her, […]
