Caboodle's Diner

Earlier this year I created some fun illustrations for the AW16 issue of Caboodle Magazine, and this week I finally got to see it in the flesh as my copy landed on the doorstep!
The theme for the DIY/craft section of the issue was all things 'Fave food' and the brief mentioned burgers, milkshakes, fries, fizzy pop (along with lots of other yummy foods!) So I came up with an illustration of the Caboodle Diner, which Amy & Kayti used as the title page! I also created a few spot illustrations which have been used within the tutorials. The project was so fun to work on, despite making me hungry when I was looking at all the reference images for donuts, cakes & ice cream sundaes! I had a slight disaster after getting most of the diner drawing done I noticed I'd spelt Caboodle wrong, oops! But I managed to fix it without too much stress, I love how its turned out! And of course its great to get to see my work in a magazine for the first time!

I haven't had a chance to properly read the whole issue yet, but after a quick flick through it certainly looks amazing and I can't wait to delve into it fully!
You can order your copy here.

Custom House Portraits

I've added another new custom listing to the shop: House Portraits!

House portraits are perfect if you're looking for a lovely illustration of your home. Or I can illustrate your wedding venue, favourite hotel, or anything else you can think of!
Special details such as pets, flowers etc. can be included within the image to make it even more personal, and you'll always receive a sketch of your illustration before I work on the final image, so you can make sure you're completely happy with it!

Find out more in my Etsy shop.
Custom maps and portraits are also available.

Jelly Button Jewellery

I've been wanting to share these for a while now as I designed the first one earlier on this year, but I thought I'd wait until the whole selection was ready (although more are on their way now too!)

I designed these enamel pins for the lovely Michelle of Jelly Button Jewellery.
I had so much fun working on these, Michelle's ideas are always so fun to create!

They're all available to buy on her website for £6.50 each (plus P&P), and she has lots of other lovely things available too!

(The little gnome is also available as a pair of earrings for £4.50 here)

Look out for new milkshake and Mr Frosty designs coming soon!

Tallinn Walls

Today I'm sharing an illustration of one of my favourite places from our holiday to the Baltics: Tallinn, Estonia. The whole place felt like we were in the middle of a medieval fairytale, so I of course absolutely loved the entire day!
As you can probably imagine I took hundreds of pictures of these while we were there and they've given me lots of inspiration for new illustration! Starting with these old walls with fairytale turrets that surrounded the old town. 

I'll be working on some more illustrations inspire by Tallinn in the next few weeks :)
