Drawing birds - start to finish

A before and after round up of an illustration I finished tonight for my Jacky Winter folio page. You can click on the image for a larger view. The coloured illustration reminds me of some crockery we had in our home when I was little, so I'm on a mission to track it down. I'm really enjoying making these patterned little birds, more of these to come!
On another note, you may notice that my blog has had a facelift - I'm working on my new website at the moment and couldn't wait to drop in the new blog layout while everything else is being finalised. Normally I'm a bit OCD and would wait for everything to be finished so that it all matches perfectly,  but I love the new layout so much I had to get at least part of it up and running. Hope you like xxx

Illustration for the little ladies!

Sleep tight! Here's an illustration I did for this Cotton On Kids PJ set. I LOVED drawing this, I go into a semi coma drawing patterns, focusing on nothing else but all the little details. Hands down the best way to zone out. All while being productive. Tick! You can get them here xxx

Me, as seen by Matt Kovacs

I was lucky enough to have my dear friend Kovacs come and photograph me at home with his beautiful Linhof camera. No photoshop, no shitty instagram filters, nothing except for him and his camera. The guy is a genius. I love this photo for so many reasons -  I love the drawing I was working on at the time, I loved the privileged of being photographed by Kovacs, I love that he took the metal plate negative home and developed it in his own darkroom, and I love that it's not so much about me as it is about my work, captured through his work. Do yourself a favour and check out more of Kovacs work here and here. xxx
