L is for Leaf

It all started with a wander through Kew Gardens on a beautiful Autumn afternoon. I couldn’t resist collecting lots of beautiful fallen autumn leaves.

This led to a few inky doodles, using black ink and white gel pen. I then scanned my leaf doodles into the computer to create my full colour leaves (see below). Although I had a play with blue and green (my ‘go to’ colour palette), I thought I would stick to the autumnal colours.

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:
