New Work for reform

Here is the new artwork I produced for Lucy Berry's column in Reform magazine. This month focuses on Lucy's mother and how she barely recognizes anyone, even those in her own family. This appears on the surface to be very sad and although it is difficult for the loved ones around her, Lucy's mother seems incredibly happy and leads a very simple life, which is such a blessing. I wanted to convey her as looking content but with a somewhat vacant look and include her grandson, Sav in the illustration too.

Wow, Time Flies...

Well, it's been several months since my last post and that is because I now have a beautiful baby girl, called Ruby, who is just 4 months old and takes up a lot of her mum's time (but in a very good way.) While she is having a nap (quite rare during the day!) I thought I'd take a few minutes out to share the artwork I had been doing right up to having Ruby.

I still try to illustrate here and there but I don't get very long, plus I really want to enjoy this time with my daughter as I imagine these precious moments of her development whiz by in a flash.

So here are a couple of images for The Sunday Express magazine (September, 2011).

I have also been busy with the images I do for Lucy Berry's piece for Reform magazine I did a few back to back so they had a stock pile to use in the first few months. I still manage to keep these going but they have to be done much quicker these days!
