Collecting Images

I’ve been spending a lot of time in my sketchbook recently doing really quick sketches. I like do this kind of work and ‘collecting’ images in my sketchbook, of which the best ones I can use in final work. I’m hoping to put these together at some point, but at the moment I’m enjoying not having to create a finished or perfect piece if work. Here are some little fast ‘doodle’ style images. I think they will crop up in a piece of more finished work somewhere at some point, but for now theses are defiantly a work in progress! It would be great to know what you think in the comments below…

Thomas Archer Exhibition

A while ago I was asked to illustrated some of the famous architecture by English Baroque architect Thomas Archer for an exhibition of his work in Hampshire . It was a fantastic project to work on as he had designed some beautiful buildings and it was great learning about his life and work. Heres a selection of my favourite…

Best of Instagram – October

I like to think of Instagram at the moment as a place for outtakes and sneak peeks. I love it as a tool for getting reactions to work in progress. It is also a great place for sharing and learning new techniques as well as finding great inspiration and networking with other creatives. Im still fairly new to the app, but loving it so far!

Let me know if you have any hints or tips – or if you have a great Instagram profile you think I should take a look at! Just add a comment below with your link! Take a look at my Instagram profile here!

Bake Off

I have loved this series of Great British Bake Off! I want to get baking! What inspires you to be creative?

This pattern was made from a few sketch book doodles – I think it probably needs a little more development… but its getting there. Let me know what you think!

Fall, leaves, fall

Leaves-Pattern

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.”

Fall, leaves, fall
