Aspinal of London: St Pancras 22nd October

On, Thursday 22nd October I'll be in the Aspinal store at St Pancras station, London, from 12-6pm.
I will illustrating the customers as with their favourite Aspinal product, giving them their very own illustration to take home! So if you're in the area, and have 5 mins to spare, make sure to come in to get yours!
This will be my second time illustrating in this particular store. They're all great stores and the staff are fab, so it's a real treat.
I'll be using the #myaspinal all day if you want to follow what goes on and take a look at the illustrations.

Aspinal of London: Store events 2015

Over the last few months I've been doing some exciting events for Aspinal of London, becoming the in house illustrator for the day, creating watercolour fashion illustrations for the customers. I've been all around their London stores, including; Covent Garden Canary Wharf, Marylebone, Selfridges and their Flagship on Brook Street, and also to their store in Bluewater, Kent. I absolutely love doing these events, drawing all day, meeting wonderful new people, surrounded by beautiful Aspinal products.
A3In this case, the customer choose their favourite Aspinal product and posed while I sketched them, I then added watercolour and it was done within 5-7 mins. So all of the illustrations you see in this post have been done quickly, in store and in front of the customer.
I've had an incredibly positive response from everybody that I draw, as it adds a lovely element to their shopping experience and gives them something extra to take home with them. I have a few more events in the pipeline, which as ever, I'm very excited for. The events are widely shared on social media, so follow myself and Aspinal of London for updates.

Chanel Haute Couture 2015

Here is a series of illustrations inspired by the Chanel Haute Couture S/S 2015 show.
This show looked amazing, I wish I could have been there to see it first hand, luckily Chanel released the full video on their website. The Catwalk design was particularly inspiring! I loved the way the colours sprang out from the white garden as the models walked on.
These illustrations are of some of my favourite pieces form the collection.

Wow, it's been a such long time since my last post!
I've been busy working on various freelance jobs, and also working on my own illustrations and gifs.

Here's my latest illustrated fashion gif.
I got the images from Bleach Salon, London. They create amazing pastel coloured hairstyles which inspired me to colour the background in, in a rainbow of colour!

Bat those lashes

I've just created my first gif animation. I know I know, pretty basic right. But for someone only used to seeing their drawings and illustrations stay static it's rather exciting and new to see them in motion!  Before I decided that I wanted to become an illustrator, I actually wanted to be an animator. So it's a real indulgence to mix the two disciplines. Having never even dabbled in using any animation programs I found this was a good way to start, as I have used photoshop to create this. I just chose an image to draw and decided on trying out making the eyes blink first. (as it looked like the easiest!) I can't wait to apply this technique to other, more complete looking illustrations and see where I can take this!
