Jungle Illo - Take 2!

I spent a little time last week re-working an illustration for my portfolio (you can see the original if you scroll down a bit!), after some fab advice from Hannah at Plum Pudding. I think it's looking a lot better now, especially Tiger. I think I should write him his own little story.

If you go down to the woods today...

A new sample for my portfolio, the Teddy Bears' Picnic! I've had the Teddy Bears' picnic song stuck in my head for the entire weekend, it's starting to drive me a little crazy so I'm glad I've finished this!

I'm also using this for this weeks Illustration Friday! This weeks word was 'prepare'. The bears were well-prepared for this years Teddy Bears' picnic, bringing fresh lemonade and a yummy jam sponge cake!

Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012!

Happy New Year to everyone!!

We have now said goodbye to 2011 and welcomed in the new year, 2012 I can't believe it!

2011 has been a good year for me, not one of the best though! My illustration work has suffered slightly due to me working full time, but I still managed to squeeze quite a bit of illustration related goodness in! My highlights include the 1st and 2nd GradGallery exhibitions in Cheltenham and Bristol, my work being including in Liberty's S/S 2011 Storybook Collection, small commissions for Scholastic and Bag of Badgers, the launch of my new, shiny website and lots of new portfolio pieces! I've got lots of plans for this new year and I'm really going to make this my year for illustration.

I hope everyone has a lovely year filled with happiness, luck, lots of tea and the odd chocolate brownie! :-)

Here are a couple of my photo highlights from 2011:
