Perhaps a bit footballeresque, but quite happy with them for a couple of hours work! And it was just an experiment anyway!!

All taken from this drawing...

Below are two images, both of a portrait I painted from a photo by Jamie Hawkesworth -

I think the polaroid is particularly interesting.

After making quite a nice owl illustration for my childrens book i thought it would be a good idea to try my hand at some animal illustrations!
Here's a go at an elephant!

Heres a go at a tortoise.. Think I might do an A-z of animals book in this sort of style..

I had a go at...

...some fashion type illustration today, but tried to put my own style into it. Quite pleased with it for a quick job and as a concept!
Dad made a good point that you don't want fashion models to look like they have parchment skin, but I think it works okay... Like I say, it was just an idea I had and this was the result!

Wrapping Paper

My wrapping paper was chosen (kind of)!
They really liked the bee design but found it was probably not that marketable. They also really liked the style I did it in so asked if i'd try the same thing with butterflies which they have decided to go with!
Not too keen on the colour myself, but apparently it's very in demand atm!

Elective Project

For our creative Business project we had to design a wrapping paper for a large paper company, to be used in florists across the country. This was actually a live brief, if my design is chosen it will go to print and I'll get £300. Though it's unlikely!
I decided to go on the theme of insects.

For our first project of the new term we had to buy a product for under £1 and redesign the packaging so it would sell for over £2. I chose Rocky Road :) Below is the net for the box.
