'Oopsy Daisy Katie' on Illustration Rally

I recently started working more on children's illustration, and entered some of the work into the Illustration Rally picture book competition, which was a great competition where the winner gets to meet with Mike Jolly of Templar publishing and discuss their portfolio!! A great opportunity im sure you would agree!

So I've been working on some spreads for a story based on the silly things my cat Katie does (and there are quite alot!). During a uni project many moons ago, I created a pop-up book called 'Oopsy Daisy Katie', and decided to start with this again and create still illustrations for it. 



These are the first 2 spreads I created, and entered into the competition, which you can see on the Illustration Rally blog:



Ive also completed a few more since then:



Im having great fun with this book, and all the things Katie gets up to, so fingers crossed for the rally!

Stylist 100th Cover Competition

Last week the brilliant 'free-mium' magazine 'Stylist' was running a competition to design their 100th issue cover, as they plan to launch their 100th issue made entirely by its readers! 

So despite suffering from a massive cold (sob!) I designed a cover to enter, the theme had to be 'celebration' and needed to have the number '100' somewhere in the image, and so to celebrate a great magazine, I designed them a great cake:


They actually had an open office day on the final day for entries, where you could go and visit their offices and see the magazine being put together. It was also a last chance to hand in entries! Here are a few pics I took from their facebook page where you can see my entry on the wall ready for judging:



And here is the cover in all its glory:


Fingers Crossed!
