Mother Muse illustrations

This was such a lovely project to work on, probably my favourite so far ! I created five illustrations that were featured in Mother Muse magazine's first ever edition , including the back cover ! 

 Mother Muse magazine is a Canadian print magazine that focuses on the kind folk modern mother, it is more then a magazine it’s a lifestyle a coffee table book dedicated to you. Filled with original artwork, articles, interviews and, editorials that support slow fashion we dedicate on finding emerging designers and products for the woman who deserve it the most.

i love everything about it , the delicate colour scheme , dreamy photography , the articles and interviews on real people. 

I have had so much great feedback on all of the illustrations in the magazine but most of the love goes to the baby illustration which was on the back cover ! it is super cute and by far one of my cutest muses to date.

if you would like to read the magazine it is available to buy here

What would Blair Waldorf do ?

first of all, how amazing are these pencils my friend Helen got me for Christmas ? If you know me at all you will know i am the biggest gossip girl fan & Blair Waldorf wanna-be there is. 

These are the most popular prints i sell on my online shop , the Gigi Hadid print most of all.
Is there anything or anyone in particular you think i should draw for my next illustration ? Or a theme i could work with ?

I have been working on secret projects since before Christmas so i haven't had a lot to share recently,
this week though managed to take a little time to work on personal projects that i sell on my online shop and keep in my portfolio

Elsa Hosk the beautiful Victoria secret model has been my latest muse. I have tried drawing her in the past but failed miserably. The problem i have when drawing Elsa is that she has very beautiful but also cartoon like features which then can make my illustrations of her look unrealistic . I will save myself the embarrassment and keep those ones to myself  !

This illustration is available on my shop as a print for £13

Its the season to sparkle

I couldn't help myself . i came across this gorgeous beauty shot of Darya Dogusheva on Pinterest and i just had to recreate it in my own way.
i wasn't planning on illustrating another Christmas themed piece , but when it came to the editing , where i add the colour and backgrounds to my illustrations on photoshop I guess I must have been feeling festive and this is what happened 

I always start my illustrations with a light outline , i spend a lot of time on this part, as i feel it is really important to get all of the proportions correct. I also map out the areas of highlight and shadow 

If you have any questions about my illustration process , please feel free to leave a comment below or email me .

- Photographer of original image my illustration is inspired by is unknown. please let me know if you know who it is !

Christmas inspiration

Well i guess its officially the count down to Christmas. Not that I'm complaining i love the cozy nights, fairy lights dreamy colour palettes and of course the presents .

I'm probably a bit late , as per usual, to start working on my Christmas illustrations. It just crept up out of nowhere and now it is 6 WEEKS until the big day . Yes you read that correctly.  45 days left, and i have bought not one single present let alone created any festive masterpieces .

I guess i had better put my drawing hat on .
