So its been a bit quiet around these parts - but I have been busy ... with the house and life in general. Have also slowy been getting back into illustration and this is my offering for the moment - BUNT... "A city wide , Bristol exhibition of illustrated wooden bunting, created by local illustrators and graphic designers celebrating the diverse wildlife of the South West in association with Bristol's Big Green Week."

There you have it ... we were asked to choose as animal/plant/invertebrate each from a list of threated/unique species around these parts ... I decided to pick, well... more than one - two plants and three insects - as described below...

The news is the bunting will all get auctioned off at the end of June - not heard the details or who the money goes to, but will be sure to update here as soon as I do!

Dance Flyers and Baby Signs

Oh dear, I have been mighty absent from this blog, haven't I? I have been busy with life (as you can see on my other blog). But I have also been illustrating. Here's some stuff I made up for our dance club - yes, its a re-hashing of these, but thats what I was asked for ... these little dancing people proove to be popular!

I have also been busy with my hands ... yes it was a very long commission but part one of which has now finally finished.
I did 400 black and white line drawing ones in the end (100 words done in 4 languages). That commission now continues with colour images. I think though the colour ones are only going to be in English. I've spent today making up the faces in colour - still needs a bit of work, but am happy with how they are coming along. What I'm worried about is how they will look with the hands. I think I may have to do some fading-out or knocking-back or adding drop shadows to make sure the hands pop forward of the bodies. But that's for another day ...
