New Illustrations




After a busy 2010, 2011 has slowed down a bit for me and has enabled me to get back into the swing of drawing.

I had an amazing time throughout 2010, working with some incredible talent at some fine design agencies. I learnt so much over the last year, but having the opportunity to take a week or so off to recharge my batteries and get back to doing what I love so much means the absolute world to me.

Here are a few of the illustrations I have worked on this week. I will be sure to update you with any additional illustrations I work on.

All these illustrations will be available to purchase from my iStock portfolio within the
next week.

Happy New Year


Well, the best way to probably start this post is to wish you all a Happy New Year.

I hope the early days of 2011 are proving to be enjoyable, but lets face it, they probably are as a lot of us aren't due back at work until tomorrow.

The last few months of 2010 proved to be a bit frustrating for me, as I had a very limited amount of drawing time over the space of four months. This meant that I had a lot of half started illustrations that had been neglected and some which have been forgotten about completely. I have been able to finish a couple over the Christmas period and have posted them above.

I am hoping to get to spend more of this year drawing, though that will mean leaving my comfort zone of the regular freelance design work that I have been doing. I will need to make a big decision at some point and decide if I want to take that plunge and try my hand at a full-time illustration career in the future.

Until I have made that choice, I will continue to create as many illustrations as I can and post them for you to see here.

Don't forget that a variety of my illustrations are available to purchase through iStockphoto. You can visit my portfolio by clicking here.

In the mean time, enjoy 2011!
