Three little paintings I finished off today. Nice to get back in the habit of working with traditional materials, helps loosen everything up. Would anyone like to see these on greetings cards?

Butt Out Billy!

This is a mock front cover that I created for a job application at a children's publishers to show creative use of layout and typography. I had so much fun making this that I am tempted to develop the story and work up some further spreads to go in my portfolio. Plus I love to draw goats!

This is the first of a series I'm working on for my portfolio. It's aimed at 0-3 year olds as part of a book about insects. I will be doing several others in a similar way and sending them out to publishers and agents in the next month or so.

Here's an editorial style illustration I created for my secondary blog. It's referring to the way people can react aggressively towards those trying to educate others about ethical decisions. I'm hoping to create this kind of opinion article and accompanying illustration at least fortnightly to bump up my portfolio and practice my writing skills for blogging. You can read the full article here.
