2nd illustration for Creative Safari competition


I’ve just finished my second illustration for Creative Safari’s competition, an open brief to artists and illustrators who want to get their work noticed and sold by their company, Ohh Deer.

I’ve always been interested in the Medieval and Renaissance periods, and especially in the art of the latter period. As I said in my last post, they seem to be heavily affecting my interior design choices at the moment! This piece is a little homage those times.

It would be a great help if you could visit this link to see my entry, and to like/share it via facebook and twitter. (That is, if you like it!). You can also take a look at my first entry too, and do the same. Thank you so much!


Illustration for Creative Safari competition


The brilliant blog, Creative Safari, have got another competition on! Artists and illustrators can submit their work in the hope of having it sold in their online shop Ohh Deer, as well as the possibility of it being stocked in tonnes of high street shops.

Take a look at the piece I’ve just submitted! It’s called ‘Our House’; we’ve recently moved and it’s given me the chance to appreciate the things that we own, now that we can see them in a new light/space. Some are old, some new (I’m particularly loving our new sofa). The whole living room has got a rich and cosy feel now, which is a reflection of my interest in the medieval and renaissance periods…which is in fact the theme of the piece I’m working on right now, to be submitted to the competition tomorrow!

If you like this piece or any of my subsequent ones, please like it here, or share on twitter – just getting a few more people to notice my work helps a milion. So thank you!

Star gazing + competition time

Recently I’ve been working on a few pieces for an exciting project which is to be launched later this summer, and as you might have seen from my previous post, it’s meant that I’ve been having fun studying the beautiful textures and colours of oysters. I’ve now gone from seas to skies, where the zodiac has taken its turn to be at the tip of my pencil, and whilst my knowledge of stars and their positions is still pretty poor, it’s been a really lovely piece to work on.

In other news, I’ve also entered a card competition that Ohh Deer are hosting on their blog (recently become veerrrryyy addicted to their site, eek.) For those of you who were kind enough to get my husband and me a wedding gift, you’ll have received the thank you card that I’ve entered into the competition. I’d be so so grateful if you’d vote for my entry, as getting more votes will give my work recognition and help me to progress in the illustration field.
