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. They wanted something seasonal that reflected their business, their director also specified the wording “Have an ACE Christmas” so I came up with this….

If you’re interested you can find out more about ACE at www.acetraining.co.uk – they do great work with young people, training up construction apprentices – gorgeous website designed by my brilliant friend Adam from Wilkinson Moore (www.wilkinsonmoore.co.uk).

I love love love working on bespoke illustrations! More like this please!

Christmas cards have arrived!

My Christmas cards have arrived!!! So very exciting! There are 2 designs to choose from – one is Ruby & the Bear, and the other is Peace Man… Cards cost £2.20 including delivery, and if you wanted to go really wild I am doing 10 cards for £15, that is a serious bargain.

I’ve been madly busy lately with graphic design work, illustration commissions and a hugely exciting top secret book illustration project which I can’t wait to share!

If you fancy buying some cards just drop me an email at emma@laserra.co.uk and I’ll pop some in the post for you xxxx

 

Christmas commissions

It’s been a really exciting few weeks and I’ve got a lovely mixed bag of work at the moment! 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 Brooke of Handmade by Brooke.

The best bit has been working on some fantastic commissions – 2 boys in their superhero den, 3 children walking the dog, 2 busy boys biking at Rutland Water, a seaside portrait with someone else’s dog, 2 more boys with their pallet creations in the garden, individual portraits with guinea pigs, rabbits, and cuddlies! It’s been brilliant! And as almost everything is for Christmas it’s all TOP SECRET!

If you’re wobbling on the fence thinking you might just want a Christmas illustration please get in touch soon, I still have a few spaces left for pre-Christmas commissions, but not for long! They really are such a lovely pressie, and I can now deliver to anywhere in the UK, beautifully packed and ready to hang on the wall.

In other news, I have been working hard on my Christmas cards and I’m really hoping to have them printed and ready to buy in the next fortnight… here is a sneaky peak at the work in progress stage… watch this space!

card designs

I’ve been working hard trying to get some saleable items together – I’ve done a few watercolours over the last month or so that needed a bit of jigging around, and I’m sending off for card & fine art print proofs for them to sell in my online shop soon.

Today I’ve been finishing off 5 card designs, 3 nursery themed, one is the nonna one and then the first of the pedigree dogs. I’ve also been working on a painting of my parents’ house that’s starting to come together well. I’d love to do some more houses, it’s really satisfying to be so precise.

I’m in a real dilemma at the moment with my artwork, it’s hard to maintain focus when you work on your own and I miss seeing lots of people at work… but I love painting and designing…
