MY LILLA ROGERS GLOBAL TALENT SEARCH 2014 ENTRY ...

 
This is my entry to the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search 2014.
The theme was "Little Terrariums" for a poster/ wall art.

 I didn't make it through to the next
round ... next time maybe!
The 50 that did get through are amazing - click here to have a
look.

Back to work on the two big jobs I'm working on at the mo,
one of which is for the lovely Southwold Boating Lake & Cafe.

WEDDINGS, EASTER & RWANDA AID

Front of card

Inside card

My "Will you be my bridesmaid?" card has been selling so well
I thought I'd better design one for the boys!


I've also been busy creating this new Easter design...

... reworking this old one ...

... and designing a new foxy card for Rwanda Aid ...


I'm looking forward to seeing the banana leaf version. The 
Rwandan ladies are so clever, I just know it's going to be
brilliant!
 Check out Rwanda Aid if you've got a mo - HERE

FEATURED ARTIST ON RED BUBBLE TODAY!

A huge thank you to Beth Caird at Red Bubble who
interviewed me for the feature.
Take a look at the interview HERE!

I was commissioned to create a
40th birthday card this week, and used
my new gouache paints. I've never used
gouache before, not sure why because -  I LOVE it!

WINTER






A new card design.
This began as a doodle, trying out different
textured brushes. I got a bit carried away.
And ended up removing all of the textured bits
by the time I'd finished.

PRETTY THANK YOU CARD




Following on from yesterday, my design
has changed colour and I've added
some lettering. I'm pretty pleased
with this. Give it a day or two, and 
 I'll hate it!

PRETTY FLOWERS AND BIRDS


I got the paintbrushes out today, 
for the first time in ages. 
I'm a bit rusty, but I had a good time.
This design is the end result, 
inspired by the blackbirds in the
garden.

MY BEAUTIFUL WITCH



My daughter Eve (on the left) has her pic in the local paper online tonight -
and what a fantastic pic it is too!
She was taking part in Norwich's first ever Halloween Parade.
Brilliant face pulling.

PUPPY LOVE


This illustration was commissioned by my daughter,
my advisor in all things cute and fluffy.
She saw my drawing of the cat and the girl when she
came in from school today and asked me to draw her
with our dog Lola ... voila.


I'M SMITTEN, KITTEN


This illustration is loosely based on a photo of my daughter
when she was younger. She met a kitten on holiday and was
immediately smitten ... not so sure about the kitten!

BULLDOGS AND A TWERK ALERT ... GOOD COMBO!




Last night's doodling
produced a bulldog ...

like on a t shirt...


Menacing!


And here's a crazy rock star cat, miley styley ...



Available to buy at zazzle, if you're tempted ;)
