Commissions

Here are just a couple of commissions I've done over the last few months. They're a bit different to the other illustration work I do because I get quite fussy over trying to make the people look like who they actually are! If you're interested in a commission feel free to contact me on my email hburnsillustration@gmail.com with any questions or queries you have!

Harry Potter Birthday Present

Last week was my best friends birthday and she is the queen of Harry Potter. She's basically a Harry Potter encyclopedia! So I thought for her present I'd do some Harry Potter portraits and frame them for her and here are the pictures!

Marketstall - Portfolio Illustration


So I'm going to try and get back on track with posting pictures on here! I've just been super duper busy recently with all sorts of work and I'm never sure what I can and can't post! So I'm going to stick a few of my portfolio pieces on here.

This piece was inspired by a friend of mine who has her own florist business! She makes the most lovely arrangements that she sells online and at markets. I visited her last time she was selling at a market in our town and I was telling her how I was stuck for ideas for a new portfolio piece and inspiration struck and I thought I could draw her on her stall! And so I DID! And here's the final product. Although it doesn't quite do her flowers justice she makes some beautiful little watering can bouquets and all sorts you can follow her on Facebook HERE!




For more work examples and info visit my portfolio at Astound! And feel free to contact them or myself with any commission/work enquiries!
