Commission Quest - Stylist magazine - Part 1

This is the first installment of a new series of posts called 'Commission Quest', which will chart my progress as I aim to create original ways and custom made pieces to try and get commissioned. If success doesn't follow at least I'll have had some fun along the way! Not to mention some swanky new additions for my portfolio!

Above is a sneeky peek of my first 'Commission Quest' to tantalise the creative tastebuds. I will be back next week with the full details and the finished work. Have a nice weekend!

Latest work!

My latest piece for the editorial section of my portfolio. It's about all things antique and vintage that are now at our fingertips because of the wonder that is the internet! I certainly don't know what I would do without it! As my illustrations always start out as a monochrome creation I thought I would show you the 'before' and 'after' ... listen to me I'm coming over all Blue Peter!
