Knitwear and Badgers.

Crikey where does time go?? Clearly a New Years resolution ought to be to blog more…

So here’s some new work. It’s portfolio pieces imagined for a young chapter book, they’re loosely based on the idea of a girl whose jumper has shrunk- Oh no! Who would she ring for help?? Badger of course!




Badger, of course, comes straight over




Measures up..




Hmmm, somethings not quite right!





There’s a couple more pictures to come, I’ll post them soon.

It’s not only rabbits, it’s all happening in the garden..

I’ve been experimenting with looser washes, less black outline and enjoying having a bit of a play!SunflowersWeb

Mr Rabbit.

I don’t have fairies at the bottom of my garden. I have a rabbit.



I was playing with building up different washes of colour to add texture and depth. I’m hoping there will be more to come..

Black, white and a little bit of colour..

I’ve been trying some new things. I was imagining a world with these two characters, one a spy and one a detective and them constantly hunting/ hiding from each other..

I’ve left a lot of white space as I was imagining this as if it was for a children’s chapter book, so the white space would be where text would go.
