People!, oh, and weddings


I was recently asked to do another commission for Magi Design, another Rob Ryanesque laser cut wedding card. This was all fine and great until I discovered that it would involve drawing two figures.

Now, I knew they were not asking for any kind of Da Vinci anatomical study but ever since doing life drawing classes at art college where we had an angry tutor who chain smoked and dropped cigarette ash on our drawings whilst (heavily) criticising them, I have not been the biggest fan of drawing people. All manor of crazy animals, yes, but not humans.

However, as this design was a homage to Rob Ryan I was able to be a bit more free with the style and incorporate the figures into a whimsical backdrop.  Here is the result, hope you like it:

Hope all the mothers out there had a lovely time, especially my Mum!

CV updating- aaaggghhhh!!!


I don't know if anyone else dreads updating their CV as much as I do.  I have been putting it off for ages as the whole writing a CV process brings me out in a cold sweat. However, I noticed that mine was in need of a re-vamp and contained no examples of the 5 months of work that I have now done for Egmont Publishing (working on their Disney magazine portfolio) or the greetings cards I have illustrated for Magi Design so it was in need of some re-working.

I also think that (hopefully) it looks fresh and spring-like and suitable for sending out over the next few months. Here it is:
