The Blogger

My “Blogger” illustration is now available in my Society6 shop.

She can be purchased as an art print or on various cute little objects such as pillows, iPad skins, tote bags, etc.

I had originally illustrated her when I was living in New York, 2 years ago. I wasn’t blogging very frequently (It was my first time in New York, you see, and there was so much to do!), but I was drawing a lot, all the time and everywhere!

One of my best friends from there loved this illustration and she would always mention it in our emails and chats. I had forgotten about it for a while until this morning. For some reason, I woke up thinking about it! It took me a while to find it among my several back up folders, but here it is! :0) Looking at it makes me happy. It brings back a lot of good memories.

See it in my shop here.

Lots of love,

The Piano Room

In preparation for a lovely Arts & Crafts event taking place in London in October (more about that later!), I’ve been going through some of my old illustration pieces.
This one was originally black and white, drawn on very textured recycled paper. Just for fun, I decided to colour it whilst trying to maintain some of the original texture.

I was quite happy with the result, I must admit. I don’t usually revisit old illustrations or rework them, but this time, I was glad I did it! I didn’t think the colours would work so it was a nice surprise.

I created this illustration years ago, while I was reading The Great Gatsby. I was inspired by Daisy Buchanan, one of the main characters, though looking back now, I think the style of this illustration is more Jane Austen than Fitzgerald. Check out the original drawing here.

I’ll make a couple of tests to see if this piece works as an Art Print. If it does, I will produce a limited number for my Etsy shop and advertise here so, watch this space! :0)

Lots of love,

So Many Lovely Things

My latest illustration assignment was to design the new blog header for London fashion and beauty blog So Many Lovely Things. This was such a nice project. Here is the final piece:

This was a lot of fun to draw, especially the little louboutins. Dani (the blogger) was enthusiastic every step of the way and an absolute joy to work with. :0)
