Ambit – “The Half-Pigs” illustration

Been a long time coming. I haven't shared anything on here in far too long and this post is long overdue but better late than never. Accompanying a short story by Giovanna Iozzi, I started by spending some very fun days scouring charity shops for frames and ashtrays that I could use for inspiration. Never knew charity shops are not allowed to sell ashtrays but luckily I got my hands on a couple. Of course I ended up with way more than I needed. Typical shopping trip. I don't usually go about composing a peice this way but it was definitely suited here and paid off

WIP// Bad hair day

After a long day I finally finished this little ladies hair. Bit of a tangled mess and I'm not very happy with it but hopefully I can wake up with fresh eyes and feel it looks better. Always one of my favourite feelings. Goodnight xxx

Preparing for a new adventure

After a week in the Cotswolds with my family, I came home ready to start a new venture. A couple of weeks ago I became an official new blogger for Craftsy.com and I am very excited about my first post which I began work on today. Keep an eye out on the Craftsy drawing blog (link below) for my first tutorial. Fingers crossed xxx [tg_button href="http://www.craftsy.com/blog/drawing/?_ct=rbew&_ctp=cat-nav" color="black" bg_color="" text_color=""]Craftsy Drawing Blog[/tg_button]

Orchids

After looking at all my flowering orchids lately I just could not resist featuring them in my next little project. I am excited to show you all where they will end up in the next couple of days. For now, I must sleep. xxx

Chanel – look 48 part 2

Part 2 and the entire project is now complete. This is the accompanying illustration to the runway Chanel outfit and more specifically the bolero "look 48" from Chanel's Metiers d'art 2014-15. Part 2 of the illustration is a look into the making of the jacket as a little tribute to the paraffection and the "petite mains" who spend hours slaving over the making of the couture pieces. The two prints will be on exhibition at the Farnham Maltings in Surrey on the 9th and 10th of May. Would love you all to come and take a look. xxx
