Halloween


Halloween isn't such a big deal here in England, but I thought I would make a Halloween illustration anyway! Partly inspired by True Blood!

Hope you all have a nice day whatever you're doing :)

Unicorn Hair



Lately, I've seen a lot of people with multi-coloured hair. I think it looks really gorgeous, although I'm not sure I could pull it off myself!

This is a little illustration I have just finished in photoshop. The more I use photoshop, the more I seem to enjoy it, and I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out.

I hope you all like it :)

Blog Awards!

The lovely Erin from Popcorn, Pugs, & Peonies has awarded me with this!

Here are the rules:
- Say thank you with a post linking
- Write 7 things about yourself

- Present the award to 3 other blogs

- Inform them about it


So I am presenting it to:

-Aimee from Supersonique Magnifique
-Sydney from Sydsense
-Tor from Fab Frocks World

Now seven things about me! This could potentially be quite boring!

1) I used to work in a high school as a Learning Support Assistant and it was insane.
2) I have a degree in Drama and Theatre Studies.
3) I don't actually own a tv at the moment!
4) My favourite artist is Kurt Jackson.
5) I once directed a play that was shown at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
6) I am a geek, and like to play MMO's such as WoW!
7) My favourite book is The Secret History by Donna Tartt.

Blogs I like...Kingdom of Style

I'm sure most people will be pretty familiar with Kingdom of Style! I think it was probably one of the first blogs that I was aware of, and I have always really loved it.

Queen Michelle has the most awesome collection of t-shirts I have possibly ever seen, and Queen Marie posts some lovely home-ware inspired ideas.

Go and check it out if you haven't already :)

Rosie in the Hat




This is a little painting I finished the other day, its based on a Photoshop illustration I did awhile ago if anybody remembers that!

I really liked the previous one, so I wanted to put it on canvas, and experiment with mixed media.

I used all sorts on this canvas, including card, newspaper, watercolour, and acrylic.

Hope you all like it!

Comme des Carcons


Just a really quick post to show you this illustration I made in Photoshop. I really loved the golden hair pieces at the Comme des Garcon show, they looked really unusual! Go and check out the other looks if you have time :)

Giles A/W


This is just a little illustration done in Photoshop based on one of the outfits from the Giles collection. I thought the whole show was gorgeous, and this is one of my favourite trends for Winter.

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my previous post!

Face Paint




Another little mini-canvas that I finished yesterday :)

This was another experiment with using a textured canvas, and I really like this technique now. I will probably pop this up on my Etsy shop at some point this week.

If anyone has any ideas for some canvases you would like to see or some cool images that I could use as inspiration then just drop me a comment :)

Fab Frocks


Last week, Tor from Fab Frocks World asked me to design the header for the relaunch of her blog/website! This is what I came up with - I hope you all like it. It was a really fun project; Tor was lovely to work with, and gave me lots of helpful input.

Go and check out her blog!

Roses


Just a really quick post today! Thank you for all of your lovely comments lately, I really appreciate every single one I get.
This is just a simple watercolour. I've messed around a little with it in photoshop, but I might re-visit it at a later date.

I will probably put the original up on my Etsy store at some point :)

Kate




This is a mini canvas that I finished yesterday, partly inspired by Kate Moss. I primed the canvas first with a thick layer of acrylic which has given it a really textural look, and I'll probably experiment with this technique again in the future.


I sold my other little mini canvas a few days ago so I will probably be putting this one on my Etsy too! I was super pleased :)

Hope you are all having a good week :)

Blogs I like...Gem Fatale



This is a little feature that I've been thinking about starting for a while. I'm going to be doing some blogger portraits of some of my favourite blogs - I'm sure you will all be very familiar with most of them, but I still thought it would be a nice idea.

I've been reading Gem's blog for ages! She seems really friendly, and always has the most awesome nail art.

I would be interested in finding out who all your favourite bloggers are too, so let me know :)

Lindsey



This is just a little portrait inspired by Lindsey Wixson. I really like her - I think she looks very doll-like.

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm having a little sale over at my Etsy shop. So if you are looking to pick up a bargain, then check it out. There's a couple of original paintings on there at the moment, and they are all pretty cheap!

I will also be announcing the giveaway winner next week (probably Monday/Tuesday) so remember to look out for that :)

Another competition...

Hey all, I just wanted to say thanks for all of your lovely comments on my last post! It means alot that you take the time to look at my work and I really do appreciate it.

This piece is for another competition I found over at Talenthouse (I really love this site lately). This time it is to design a limited edition poster for Rod Stewart's gig in Las Vegas.

I hope you all like it :)

My First Sleeping Beauty

This is fairly different to what I usually do, but it's for a competition I saw on the Talenthouse website. The brief is to design a poster for the children's production of 'My First Sleeping Beauty' for the English National Ballet.

I tried to make it look as appealing to children as possible, whilst still capturing the essence of the classic story. If you want to support me, just click here.

Let me know what you think :)

Blue streak




Firstly I just want to say hello to all my new followers, and thank you for entering my giveaway!

This is a mini canvas I have been working on lately, and I will probably put it on my Etsy shop. This was done in acrylic and pen, which made a cool change from just working in watercolour. Sometimes, it feels so awkward to go back to painting with acrylic, but I feel as if I'm getting used to it now.

Let me know what you think :)

Summer


I saw this photo in Glamour UK and felt like painting it, it's just a shame the weather is so miserable today. Let's hope it picks up in time for the weekend.

Rosie


This was based on a photo I saw of Rosie Huntington - Whitely.

It was mostly done in photoshop, but the basic picture was hand drawn.

Hope you are all having a good day.

Bunnies



I decided to draw these little bunnies yesterday, no idea why other than the fact that I quite like rabbits!

I think they turned out pretty cute though. I could imagine this making quite a nice greeting card.

Wildfox Lookbook





I saw this photo on one of the Wildfox lookbook's which I'm sure some of you have seen already, and thought it would make a cool illustration! I had a good play around in photoshop with this one, I think im slowly starting to learn how to use the software properly.
