Little decisions

A few editorial illustrations for a short project; they're based on an article about the decision-making process. :)

Each of them has something that isn't quite right about it, in my opinion, but at least there's something I like about each of them too. May develop the latter two further, particularly the one with the shoes. I like those shoes.

More cards..!

Here are a couple more cards..! I've been taking the opportunity to practice using Illustrator some more. The bunny one comes with a few different messages (for Easter and Mother's Day as well as "thank you").

We'll be printing tomorrow..! Lots of people have done designs, so hopefully printing will go well.

A couple of things

Here are a couple of recent acrylic paintings that, well, I liked enough to put up here. They're just experimental/developmental pieces really, but I enjoyed doing them. :)

I suspect the first one was unconsciously somewhat inspired by Ruth Brown 's picture book A Dark, Dark Tale... it was one of my favourite picture books when I was little, and probably still is really! I'm quite pleased with how the colours turned out in both of these. :)

More cards

Spring is hopefully not far off, and we need to raise more money for our degree show publication, so we're having another card sale! We'll be selling Valentine's cards, Spring season cards (Mothers/Father's Day/Easter etc), and more general designs. Here are a few of mine..!

I have some more designs I'm working on, but not sure about them yet. Hmm..!

Allerleirauh - disguise yourself as yourself

Rather regretful that I didn't make this post in January sometime, but dissertation took up my time and left me in a befuddled state for a while afterwards -such is life! Here are some of the spreads from my book. I enjoyed working with furry brushstrokes and muted colours. :)
