Sophia in the woods

Here’s a Christening commission I’ve just finished, really enjoyed this one! Little Sophia loves bunnies and her Auntie wanted an illustration of her in a woodland glade, we managed to include her family cat, lots of rabbits, 2 of her cousins peeping out from behind a tree, as well as a rainbow and lots of butterflies!

Christmas commissions are fully booked now, but these make lovely gifts for all sorts of things – Christenings, birthdays, a starting school present…

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!

Portrait illustration

Something new! I’m now offering portrait illustrations!

This simple & stylish portrait costs £45 unframed, and is based on a photo of your choice. The picture is hand drawn in pencil and finished in watercolour. I’ve got space for a few before Christmas, so let me know if you fancy one, I can also frame the picture for you for an extra £15.

I’ve got all sorts of ideas for these… stationery… cards… keep you posted!

Illustration of your child – a few of my favourite things

I’ve been taking orders for Christmas presents over the last couple of weeks and the ‘a few of my favourite things’ illustrations have been really popular!

The illustration costs £100 unframed, and features your child in the setting of their choice, with some of their favourite things around them. As a sneaky peek in my pile right now there are; a little girl at the funfair, 2 boys in the garden, a Norfolk paddler and 2 more boys, this time as superheroes! And that’s only a few! I am loving the variety of ideas and all the detail I can get in, from nail varnish to guinea pigs, bikes, comics and even favourite packets of crisps.

I have space for a few more over the next few weeks, so if you’re interested do get in touch! I also have some lovely white wooden frames which really set the pictures off, so for an extra £20 your present is all done and dusted, no hassle at all. Finished pieces are 20cm x 20cm, all original artwork.
