What I've Been up to Since Uni...



So I thought I'd do a little update because I've not really done that yet and I've not posted a lot of work since finishing uni. Couple of reasons for that, first of all I got really ill after uni and ended up in hospital in September. Turns out I have Crohn's disease and I was in and out of hospital for the majority of the next 6 months after that, so it's been disruptive for my Illustration work to say the least. However I am designing cards for The Paintbox, I've not posted full images of the designs I've done because obviously they're exclusive to that agency but I thought I'd just post a little montage of some of the designs I have done for that. It's mostly Christmas because that's the most popular genre and the most in demand, which is challenging to keep coming up with ideas but I'm actually really enjoying it and I think it's pushing me to be more creative and I do think my designs have gotten better as I've gone on. So that's my update, I'm going to keep trying to find time to do random illustrations just for myself and my portfolio that I'll be able to post on here regularly. I'm going to aim for at least one a week so stay tuned! Hope you're all well! :)

Goldilocks

Wanted to add some more children's illustration to my portfolio so did what was originally an idea for a book cover for Goldilocks and the Three Bears but I didn't want to put any text on it in the end so just left it as it is!

FanArtFriday: Pocahontas

I've decided to start a new weekly post of FanArtFriday! Just because I enjoyed doing my Little Mermaid Picture last week so much I thought I ought to treat myself once a week to something fun. Also since I can't really post any of the work I do most of the week it'll give me something to actually post on here! So here's my Pocahontas fan art!
