A little while ago I illustrated a celestial kitten for Colour Collective, but I thought she could do with a friend, so I created a cosmic empress to accompany her! Again, I've looked towards Ancient Egypt for inspiration; and now we have this cool lady overseeing the galaxy!
A little while ago I took part in The Olive Fox's launch giveaway and offered one of the prizes, in the form of a digital illustration! The prize was won by a lovely lady called Mayumi, who actually wanted an illustration of her friend, Joel, to give as a gift. Joel plays violin and mandolin in a folk band, and also loves beer, so Mayumi asked if these elements could be included somehow! I suggested adding a folksy inspired background and a short while later the illustration was ready to be sent. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out and I hope that Joel liked it too!
This is the illustration I made for last week's 'Colour Collective'. The chosen colour was 'Green Gold' which I thought was really pretty and unusual. I tried making an illustration with a super limited palette because I thought it might be a tricky colour to use but I think it turned out fine!
I love Highland cows - I think they are super sweet and adorable! Cows probably aren't the first animal that come to mind when you're thinking about cute animals, but their big eyes are just so lovely and they seem so friendly; they are definitely underrated! What animal do you find unusually cute?
Here is last week's Colour Collective and the selected colour was the very Halloweeny 'Apricot' which I was super happy about! I had already created a bunch of Halloween illustrations so I wanted to do something a little different with this. I still added some little flame totems as a nod to the holiday though - they are kinda creepy but in a cute way!
Does anybody remember reading 'The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin' when you were younger? I used to love all of the Beatrix Potter stories but this was one of my favourites! Red squirrels are just beautiful; I've even created a little acorn house for these cuties to live in, I imagine it's pretty snug in there.
