It’s been a busy summer in the city! I had a great time at the House of Illustration Summer Fair back in June. I had previously shared a stall at the HOI Christmas Fair back in 2015, and this was my first fair since then, and also my first time going solo.
I’ve been living in London for over 8 years now and have wanted to visit The Museum of Brands, Packaging & Advertising since I first moved to the city. I finally carved out some time recently to visit and decided to take a little mid-week holiday and get myself down to Ladbroke Grove.
I was recently commissioned to create a double-page spread of illustration for the April issue of delicious. Magazine. I’m a big fan of the mag, and am always at my happiest when illustrating food so it was a great job to work on.
My Brother-in-law is a Ford Capri fan (he is currently in the process of restoring one) so my Sister thought it would be nice to create a unique gift for him for Father’s Day.
I was recently commissioned to do some live portraits for the UK launch party of e.l.f. cosmetics at 19 Greek Street in Soho. e.l.f. is a U.S brand due to launch in Superdrug stores this June, and being a lover of make-up I was quite excited to be part of the launch.
It’s been a while since my last post to say the least! But i’ve been busy with lots of new and exciting things, one of them being my new shop on Art Rookie.
Art Rookie is an online platform where artists can sell their artwork on a variety of products, from greetings cards to wall clocks.
I visited the World Illustration Awards Exhibition at Somerset House this weekend, in association with the AOI.
I always enjoy visiting Somerset House for an exhibition, the exhibitions are consistently great and it’s a pleasure to visit the venue alone (and the gift shop…and the many different eateries aren’t too shabby either!)
All the work was beautiful and to an amazing standard, but these are a few of the main ones that caught my eye…
The British summer time isn’t always reliable where sunshine is concerned but that hasn’t stopped me from indulging in the odd ice cream. And documenting my findings…naturally.
I have fond memories of the summer afternoons of my childhood, being spoilt by my grandparents with there continuously stocked freezer full of ice lollies. These days it may be considered a form of child abuse the amount of sugar my grandparents made readily available to me and my Sister, but i’m confident it had no adverse affects on me…
The latest exhibition to land at The House of Illustration is Ladybird by Design, an exhibition that features over 120 of the original illustrations from the Ladybird titles, and celebrates 100 years of Ladybird books.
I recently took a visit to The Serpentine Pavilion in Londons’ Kensington Gardens to see this years summer installation. The installation is a creation by architect duo selgascano who have worked on many projects in their native country of Spain, but currently have several international projects in the making, The Serpentine Pavilion being the most recent instalment.
