P is for Pirate

This was a collection of kids illustrations and prints created last year. I struggled a little with the colour palette and deciding whether to work in Illustrator or photoshop. Having worked on it on and off for several months I am finally happy to reveal it here.

In the end I went with a simpler turquoise, purple and dark blue palette. I also pushed through with illustrator to create the patterns and artwork, prefering he flat colours for these compositions.

Below are some of the additional co-ordinating patterns in more detail:

C is for Cuckoo Clock

C is for cuckoo clock C is for Cuckoo Clock. This was the first month of Lilla Rogers Mats Bootcamp online course. The brief was to create a mobile phone cover featuring a cuckoo clock design. We started off with a  mini assignment drawing all sorts of cuckoo clocks and decorative doodles.
Cuckoo Clock doodlesThis was then scanned into the computer and translated into digital illustrations.

I’ve been enjoying making lots of prints and patterns to match the main cuckoo clock illustration.

After completing the mobile phone cover I couldn’t resist having a play with the patterns and repeats that were naturally appearing out of the cuckoo clock illustration; the borders and scallop designs and the Eidelweiss icons (Lilla loves a good icon!).Below are two bolt fabric designs and co-ordinating repeats using the cuckoo clock as the main starting point

O is for Ocean

An Ocean inspired illustration

A new illustration created for Illustration Friday this week – O is for Ocean, or should that be W is for Whale?

E is Elephant

E is for Elephant. This multiple Elephant doodle was created on my new ipad app ‘Adobe Ideas’ a belated birthday present to myself. I was so excited to be able to doodle on my ipad and the great thing is you can then open & adjust it in Illustrator CS6.

I am quite pleased with how it came out and will continue to experimenting with my ipad doodles.
