Learning For Little Fingers - Tiny Fingers!

I’m excited to say the first book is coming out soon! It’s amazing to finally see these illustrations I worked on almost a year ago now getting seen :D

For anyone interested in Learning For Little Fingers, you can keep up to date via their Facebook page, or see more information on their website!

Learning For Little Fingers educational games are now on sale :D 

I’ve been working with these guys for almost a year now and we’re slowly building up a variety of books, games and such for piano lessons! So excited to finally see some of this stuff get out there!

Draw North West Doodles!

Did some things at a thing. It was kinda just doodling random stuff as we were being antisocial and I ended up coming up with this weird bat-demon character who is super adorable and speaks like your stereotypical Japanese school girl trope but is always trying to get people’s souls. This is the kind of thing that comes out when you take a tired illustrator and put her in a crowded pub :I 

For anyone reading this in the Manchester area, I highly recommend Draw North West. It’s a meet up for arty peeps and the people who go are all great! 

Yellow Penguins! - I really loved my green penguins so I decided to create another little guy to go along with him. I’ll probably make a bunch more as I decided to start selling my characters as clip art and want a nice bulky selection to offer people! 

Hello, new followers! I’m guessing a lot of you are here because you spotted my work on Eat Sleep Draw. Thanks!
If you haven’t notices already, I mostly create cute animal characters and promote my shops and stuff. 
Please also feel free to follow my portfolio tumblr and my Twitter! The links went a bit array so well done for being that patient with me xD

Hey everyone! I’m selling stuff on Art Rookie now! Follow »>THIS LINK«< to go check it out.

Art Rookie are a UK based site, helping artists to get their stuff out there and on sale. There aren’t many UK based places to sell stuff like this so I was pretty please when they contacted me. They’re also very responsive and let you know if any of your work needs altering for print. 

wordcubed replied to your post: These are some logos I did a little wh…

Was this for a basketball team? They’re really good!

Yeah, it was for a school team or something but they decided to stay with their original branding. Thanks, I’m glad you like them. Logos aren’t really my thing so I was really proud of these :) I’m glad you like them!

These are some logos I did a little while ago as I got commissioned but then before the project even really begun, it got canned. I was pretty pleased with the drawings I had done though so decided to develop the logos anyways. I’m pretty pleased with them, but they don’t feel too much like my usual work so still not sure whether to put them in my portfolio :/ They may come in handy if I ever need examples of logo design though.

Diving For Treasure - Finally got this finished! It’s been in the works for a long time now and this past week I was determined to get it done.

I’m really chuffed with it because I wanted that crowded feeling pictures of reefs give you but still having an image with breathing space. I also wanted a lot to look at, so things in the background, subtle shadows, small animals… And I think it turned out alright. 

Are people interested in seeing them? I’ve been tempted to post them but there are a lot :I I guess I should technically be able to link the Facebook album on here as I set it to public.

Just let me know if any of you actually wanted to see. I also want to show Andy’s amazing photos but he’s not done editing them yet. He took around 1400 so… yeah xD
