When I was little

When I was little I drew a lot. What I drew most were families. I’d just start at one end of paper, and draw the father (always the father first – the families always had a mother and father), and then work my way down the line. Then I’d name everyone, writing the name below […]

The bears were hungry

More images not making in onto the portfolio page. Safe to say there are even more than this. I need a new animal. I have a series sketched out for this weekend that don’t involve the bear. He might even be doing something other than eating children. Share:

My cards are ready

My cards arrived from the printers and I’m pretty pleased with them. I love the single image glossy fronts – the colours are perfect and the lines are crisp. I’m also really happy with the backs, which are matt so it looks like I drew the pictures right on the paper by hand. So all […]

Some I didn’t put on

Some I didn’t put on

Here are a couple of illustrations that I didn’t add into my online portfolio.  I figured I only need so many of the Red Brick Cafe’s in there, but I’m hard pressed to pick favourites so here are a few more. See more illustrations on my portfolio pages. Share:
