A big thank you

I recently celebrated two years in business so here is a little look back at some of the work I have done in that time. A huge thank you to everyone who has worked with me and connected with me over that time. I look forward to updating you on more exciting projects and collaborations!

Vintage Parenting Postcards

If you haven't figured it out by now I have a big love of all things vintage, hence my passion for hand drawn lettering and observational drawing. However, I wanted to experiment with an illustrative style of work that was more true to 1940s posters and postcards - lots of realism and detail, combined with quite simple hand drawn typography. I wanted to create some tongue in cheek postcards that played on a vintage feel whilst having a contemporary theme. I came up with a few ideas for comedy parenting postcards, based on my own parenting woes, to make the project really fun and hopefully make you laugh whilst developing a different way of working! Hope you like them...

Do more of what you love: My creative journey

A couple of months ago I was invited to Sheffield Hallam university to give a talk about my creative journey and an honest insight into how I became a freelance illustrator. You can listen to me rabbit on in the video link below.... excuse any swears (I did say I'm honest). There are also Q&As at the end... if you have any to add please comment on the blog and I will do my best to answer them!

This talk was given at Sheffield University. Click on their logo to find out more about the great range of courses on offer.
