Can I be one of my character designs? Because it's totally happening. I'll need an A3 scanner for this one, so I guess I'm going to the library.

I think I have finished my mermaid! It's a shame that the goggles are so unaligned with the head, but I only realised that when I stood up. I think I need an easel after this! The tail is my favourite part.
Never used Photoshop before. This may be one of my character designs. It depends whether I progress or not!

I paint shoes during the summer to earn some pennies. I suppose it keeps my painting skills sharp.

Pages from my children's book! I'm sorry it's blurry. I couldn't quite hold still without the flash off of my camera. I really enjoyed this project.

(So far) naked mermaid swimmer, and some tasty nightly cereal. Am I getting better at painting? I don't even know. Hoping to add some collage to this.

I was feeling a tad uninspired today, so I drew this self portrait that hasn't really gone anywhere. I am painting a lot of shoe commissions, so that's taking up a lot of my time. But finally, I am heading to paint a new character design.

My friend had a birthday. True story.

And of course, here's a lion chilling out.

Guys, I think I have already decided that this is one of the most confusing websites that I have ever had the displeasure to figure out (with a rather uninspiring list of fonts)! However, I have been looking at other illustrators over summer, so here are some sketches that were inspired by the beautiful art of Meg Hunt. I hope to use some dry brush, but all of my attempts have succeeded to look like my poster paintings I made when I was five. I always thought my sketches had a bit more personality than my finished pieces. Shame!
