New Year New Work!

I've just realised I haven't blogged at all this year! Terrible! But it is because I have been busy busy busy with various commissions for various people, so lets give a big update!

I created some more work for the lovely people at The Quick Word Company, including a poster and their business christmas card:

Some new work for the lovely people at the Little Acorn Trading Company, which included a new header and illustration for their website, sticker designs for their sock egg boxes, as well as this cute chappy for their flyer:

I also created another wine label design for Bottle Bazaar, this one for a hen do (ignore the birthday message)!

I still have some things I cant quite share yet which I am still working on, as well as some new projects lined up, so for now this will have to do!

I can now share with you some more of the wine labels I created for Bottle Bazaar:

They look great on the wine bottles, and have even been tweeted by The Express! 

The website is pretty much ready, you can check it out HERE.
Also make sure you check out my bespoke service profile, they wrote some great things about me!

Wine label designs for Bottle Bazaar

Being a wine lover (!) I had the opportunity for the best job ever recently when Bottle Bazaar asked me to create some designs for various occasions to be used on bespoke wine labels! 

The idea is you can pick your wine and design (or get an illustrator, like me to create a bespoke design, to be launched soon), and can add your own message/name on the bottle too. Makes a great gift! 

Some of the designs I created for them:

My beautiful stag design on the bottle itself:

This is a truly happen moment for me! Wine and illustration combined . . . 

I have a few more designs up my sleeve, you can check out more designs on their facebook page (website is still being worked on), and i'll let you know when you can start ordering!

Work Catch up - Children's book samples!

Its been a while since ive posted, mostly due to the large amount of work im doing and also the amount of work in progress that i cant actually show yet!!

So here are a few guys i created in the last few months for certain children's book pitches, that sadly didnt make the cut :-( But i still love them.

This was a book cover sample for a story about a kid called Sam who gets to spend the day at work with his dad . . .  who just happens to be a firefighter! Would have been a fun one to illustrate me thinks  . . . 

These guys are so cute! At least they can have their day on the blog!

The Quick Word Company

I created some illustrations recently for a copy company based in Hong Kong called The Quick Word Company. Perfectly vintage yet quirky, it was a great brief for me to run with, and now their website is up and running they look great! 

Check out their website HERE.

Sid's Big Adventure!

I can finally share artwork for a new children's book that I worked on last year, just published on Amazon (yes, I'm on Amazon again!).

I illustrated the story 'Sid's Big Adventure' by the brilliant author Charlotte Maslen, a great little tale of Sid the Meerkat who goes in search of a new family when he is tired of his own, and encounters a whole manner of potential animals! 

It's available for Kindle on Amazon HERE.
