Happy New Yard Long Beans

Last year was busy for me in a non-illustration way.... but some time in Spring 2014, before our second baby arrived, I finished this fruit & vegetable A-Z:


Commissioned by my friends at Harvest From Home in Ohio, USA, it depicts some of the range of fruit & vegetables they can help you to grow.

It's taken me until now, Jan 1st 2015 to find a minute to blog this commission. 

My new year's resolution: draw more. Happy New Yard Long Beans!

Logo design for Jen's Nail Hut

For my first job after second baby, I was commissioned to design a logo for new business Jen's Nail Hut. The 'hut' is a stylish garden Salon in the village of Freeland, Oxfordshire where nail technician Jen offers high quality nail treatments. 

The brief was to hand draw the hut in ink & colour it digitally. The colour chosen for the lettering was specified by the client to match the towels used in the hut & accents in her website.

Any Oxford friends can check out Jen's services here:jensnailhut.co.uk

A Wedding Invitation for Rachel & Gareth

Whoops,  it's been quite a while since I posted but here I hope, is something worth the wait. The wedding invitation I designed for very special people, Rachel & Gareth.

The happy couple are pictured in front of a (mildly inaccurate) London skyline as they are getting married in East Dulwich. The back print is an animal wedding band:



The inside of the A5 invitation was drawn up using dip pen & ink:


I had so much fun drawing this. Many thanks to Rach & Gaz for choosing me to design their invitation. I wish the bride & groom every happiness in their upcoming nuptials & married life to come.
