Royal Wedding Fever!

With the Royal Wedding practically on us, its only right that it gets illustrated at some point! Sketchbook asked me to create a few illustrations for them with the wedding as a focal point, and somehow I managed to fit some in!

You can see other examples from illustrators on the Sketchbook Blog.

Wish you were here . . .

Ive been making the most of the British sunshine (you never know how long its going to be around!) and the string of bank holidays (great time for a royal wedding!) by spending some time with the boyfriend, where we went away to Kingston for the weekend. 

Such a beautiful place, a lovely stroll by the river in the sun followed by a great meal in an outside restaurant and some cold rose with the boyfriend - absolute bliss!

The Kennedys Program

I recently applied for the Kennedy's program, a great opportunity to work in amsterdam as one of 'the 6 kennedy's' for Wieden+Kennedy for 6 months! 
A huge 938 people applied, with only 6 places thats tough competition!

I was thinking of a more personal approach, after all moving to a new country for 6 months is a very big step! 
However, I then settled on a more humorous idea, and came up with this:
Cant wait to hear who is selected!

'Handbag Therapy' Article Images

I recently completed some images for ICON magazine for an article about 'Handbag Therapy'. There is a woman who is a handbag therapist, who can know all about you as a person from the contents of your handbag . . . . 
Quite an interesting read, especially with the stories of the strange things women carry around in their handbag . . .
