Family portraits

I am so very pleased that I have finally got round to finishing these family portraits that have been on my to-do list for YEARS! They are of my lovely in-laws :)

Ninja Mum vs Spider

Feeling like a superhero after dealing with a spider situation. I had to be the brave one as me and the mini-mes don't do spiders.

And now for something completely different...

...a poster I made for my other job. 
After working on children's books for over 15 years, it was fun to work on something a bit darker. 

Pop-up Zara

I made a pop-up birthday card for a friend :)
She is a super-duper woman who juggles a multitude of things and still manages to smile through it all whilst making sure everyone is ok. I was umm-ing and err-ing about what she could be juggling in the card, when a whatsapp conversation before our night out led to this: purple gin and a kebab!!
I had a lot of fun putting it together!

Pencil poster

I made a poster for my other job, to fill in and update as and when needed. I did it really quickly, staying up later than I should but I really really enjoyed it :)

Teeny tiny drawing challenge

I've been taking part in the #johnvernonlord #drawingaday challenge @illustrationhq over on Instagram where I make a 1x1inch picture every day during the month of September. Time is an issue as per usual but I felt it might be do-able because it's so tiny! It's been really fun and challenging; I'm having to be quite disciplined, peeling myself away from the telly and sofa every night, but I think it's triggered a creative surge. I'm feeling inspired and want to do more and more - but bigger!


Whilst waiting at the very busy barbers, we doodle what hair cut he might like to get: the mohican, the donut, the lego, the mushroom, the volcano, the muffin, the bird nest...we settled for the traditional short back n sides.
