Almost the end of another busy year and it's always a tricky job but I'm going to pick out some of my favourite illustrations from this year - in no particular order.
Thanks to everyone for your support in 2018. I've got some exciting new products to tell you about in the new year and lots more art and illustrations in the works. So watch this space and see you in 2019!
When you can't decide between a space themed nursery and a sea themed one - why not go for both? My new octopus astronaut print.
New art now available in the shop - budgie bathroom print!
This cute and colourful illustration of two bright budgies sitting on a branch is a pretty addition to a kids bathroom, reminding them to wash brush flush repeat, parakeets.
Pretty inspiration for nursery decor with pops of colour. Loads of rain here for the past few days and more on the way so we're staying wrapped up in doors all snuggly. Pictured Love Heart Rain Print.
Very excited to release my first print set for the nursery. Good 'ol lions and tigers and bears oh my! There is also a three print set option with just the animals. Available here.
It's a tricky one but I'm going to share some of my favourite illustrations that where new this year - in no particular order. It's been such a busy year at creative monsoon thank you to everyone who purchased a print and thank you for all the wonderful feedback and encouragement. Looking forward to making lots more art next year!
I thought I'd share a picture showing part of the process that goes into my illustration work using this rabbit I've been working on for the past couple of days. It always amazes me how such a slight change to shapes and positioning can make such an enormous difference. First I start with sketches, sketches and more sketches getting the shapes and styles right, this can go for days, sometimes weeks even. Then it's onto the computer. Always good to step away for a while and come back to an illustration with fresh eyes later.
What a crazy year! It's been such a busy few weeks with Christmas and getting ready for the last market and last exhibition of the year. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported all the local artists and designers at the Aspire Gallery's inaugural Christmas market in Paddington. It was great to be able to share my kids designs as well as my fine art work in the gallery. And thanks to everyone who has support creative monsoon this year. I've got lots of plans for 2017 including a whole new range to work on!
So enjoy your holidays and see you in the New Year!
