This is a piece I illustrated for one of Amelia's open briefs, the theme being Mother's Day! You can see my entry and a bunch of others on Amelia's website

Premade Blog Headers






I decided to make a little shop on my blog selling these premade headers (link up top!) for people that maybe want a more affordable option when looking for unique blog headers! The prices range from £10-£15 and you also get a bunch of social media buttons thrown in. Once a design has been purchased, it's gone for good, so even though it's not a unique commissioned piece, you'll still get something special. If you're interested, you can email me at carlyvanwatts@hotmail.co.uk!

Prada A/W 15


Ever since I spotted this collection, I knew I'd have to illustrate one of the looks from it! I really love the colours, the cut of the trousers and the cute little blazers; Oh, and the hair too! Prada isn't a label I follow too closely but I think this collection was pretty perfect.

Disney Tsum Tsum's!

Here come the Disney Tsum Tsum's! If you haven't heard of Tsum Tsum's, they are basically cylinder shaped plush toys available in a bunch of different sizes, and the idea is that you stack them all on top of each other. I have a few of the mini ones and they really are adorable and very collectible! For some strange reason they don't seem to be available at Disney stores here in the UK, but you can buy them from Clintons. I love them and I can't wait until some of the other characters arrive in stores. I might make a couple of other gifs based on them too!

Red Noses


This was a super quick sketch/poster I made to celebrate Red Nose Day which was last Friday in the UK! Did you watch the programme or do anything special for the event?

The Leaning Tower of Pisa


This was inspired by my recent Stockholm poster. I really wanted to create a vintagey looking illustration that appeared a little battered and worn. I really do like these oversized characters, and if you like them too then I'll design a couple more!

Postcards from Azeroth: Grizzly Hills


A bit of a WoW/My Little Pony (the old style ponies) mashup today! Here we have the beautiful mustangs that run around Grizzly Hills close to the Westfall Brigade Encampment. As part of a quest you have to ride 5 of these mustangs back to base - n'aaw! Although if you're Horde you have to frighten the horses away to stop the Alliance from taming them!
