Fairytale Book Cover

Just working on a few more bits and pieces for my portfolio. This is obviously a book jacket for a children's fairtytale treasury. I will probably work on a few spot illustrations for inside at some point soon! Let me know what you think!

Illustration Friday: Linked

Twin sheep! Kind of linked...!? Not sure which one is the evil twin though? I need to try and get my IF done over the weekend instead of leaving it to the last minute everytime!! x

Neil Gaiman's "Instructions" - love this!

My fave author, Neil Gaiman, has a new children's book out soon called Instructions. It is beautifully illustrated by Charles Vess and in this video you can see how his illustrations go from pencil roughs to final images. Neil also does a reading of the story, I love his voice it's so relaxing!

Some new work...!

Well I haven't kept to my New Years Resolution to blog more often! I've been really slack recently, I don't know why, I seem to have lost all of my inspiration. I've been working on a few things over the last month or so...a couple of children's maps for an American educational publisher, and I started working on a picture book, which has unfortunately now been put on hold. I'm now trying to get lots of new work done for my portfolio, any suggestions are welcome! Just need to get the creative juices flowing again, I'm feeling rusty!

I'm trying to make my portfolio more diverse, I've been working on some human characters and think I will experiment with some images for an older audience. This is an image of the nativity:

Hopefully I will be posting a lot more from now on!
