I've been working on a repeat pattern. Not 100% on it yet. I need to do something about that tree diagonal in the middle, and maybe add another element.

retirement

Take your pick of colours. I'd love to hear any constructive criticism. This is a response to an article about the decline in mental and physical health after retirement, and the healthiness of those who choose to stay in work.

Cloudman


This is the cloudman. All the remains is the starchild now. These are getting progressively more tricky to paint as they get smaller. Funny, that...

Spot the difference

I've finally re-vamped my logo. The original was taken from a piece I made and edited to suit a logo, this one is done from scratch with being  a logo in mind, so I think it works better on a smaller scale. Old on left, new on right!

The (wo)man in the moon- WIP

Having a busy time at the moment, but when there's next a gap, I'll try to get this devotchka finished. I've gone for a 'things in the sky theme'. She is the moon. You can see the first of the russian dolls (the sun) behind her, and then behind that, a sad looking bear who wanted to be included.

Revisiting the chicken and the egg


I've touched up this old design to be pitched to card publishers. Just in time for Easter. I think it's paid off to be more bold with colours, tonal contrast, and patterns.


               Old design                                             New improved colours and patterns!

New self initiated editorial work

This was made in an effort to broaden my editorial illustration portfolio. Quite happy with the way the colours turned out in this! The colours were inspired by the wonderful Hilda comics by Luke Pearson. You can read the article this is responding to here.

The Psychologist commission

These are some photos from an editorial commission for The Psychologist's (The monthly publication of the British Psychological Society) 25th anniversary edition. I had to read 4 articles on the Psychology of individual differences, and produce a response to something in each of the articles.
