That was the title of the article for the above editorial illustration. Created for the June MATS Bootcamp course.

This is one of the first times I have attempted to draw people in my illustrations. But I really enjoyed the process and plan to experiment with some more editorial illustration briefs in the future.

For MATS April Bootcamp Assignment we were given the job of creating a poster for the upcoming Global Art Gathering event in Brighton.
The mini had been to hand letter the words Global Art Gathering.
Hand lettering sketches
After creating the lettering by hand using pencil, pen & ink.
I then scanned the drawings and took them into illustrator. Using the sketch as an idea for a composition, I created the poster design in illustrator using the colour palette that had been given to us.
Vector artwork without texture
photoshop artwork with texture added
I then added texture to the vector artwork in Photoshop using clipping masks and hand made brushes & textures. I really liked this technique and am looking forward to exploring this technique further.
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:
Knotted (I’m still loving the rope & knotted nautical designs; here in a pale turquoise)
Palm Deco (revisiting a my palm tree pattern that works really well with this theme; recoloured in purple to match the colourway)

My Little Terrarium – created for Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search competition. Fingers Crossed!
S is for Ship (in a bottle)
Keeping with the A to Z theme of this scribble blog, this week J is for Jelly! (or Jell-o for the Americans out there!) I’ve had a fun month drawing lots of Jelly for the Lilla Rogers MATS bootcamp online course. The brief was to create a Jelly themed bolt fabric design. I doodled a lot with pen and ink; I’ve been using my traditional dip pen as well as a new bamboo dip pen. I then scanned the black ink drawings & doodles into the computer and created these prints and patterns below using photoshop & illustrator. I do love creating patterns!
Here is the final bolt fabric design I submitted for the March MATS bootcamp gallery. It shows the final pattern I went for and a simple co-ordinate print.
Below are some more patterns I played around with using a similar colour palette.
