Illustration Friday - HOLIDAY

This was a quick collage using crayola coloured paper and the packaging to a huge packet of paper. I'd been meaning to do it in illustrator but once it got to this morning and my mother wa still busy on the computer I just decided to do a collage. This isn't the best IF I've done but it was very quick and it will do!

Illustration Friday - IMAGINE

This is a watercolour and brush pen picture of me on my second birthday, thinking of other things. I am wearing a traditional chinese outfit from my auntie Rachel in Hong Kong. I'm sure at the time I wasn't imagining
Shakespeare quotes or E=mc2 (my maths teacher would probably argue that she was on her second birthday, along with pythagoras' theorem et al) but there's a lot of potential in a two year old.

My mother has made a calender for 2006 using my IF pictures, if you would like to see it or download it for free, then just click here

Illustration Friday - SURPRISE

At six am on sunday,
everyone within a 10 mile radius of the buncefield oil terminal was woken to the sound of an explosion. Everyone, that is, apart from me. I have always been a deep sleeper and when I finally roused myself at 7.15 and opened the curtains the sight was hard to believe, and I think it fully counts as a surprise. This is the view from a family walk on the monday aternoon, drawn in photoshop while my parents and were at the mother and toddler group (along with my two year old brother), and I am pleased to say for the first time I didn't even have to ask my graphic designer mother about layers etc.
All the local schools have been closed for the last two days, so it feels like it's already the christmas holidays, but having just checked the school website I'm sad to say it's back to school for three more days before I can truly relax
But on the plus side, it is a non-uniform day tomorrow.

Another surprise is just after finishing this, I saw my mother had drawn pretty much exactly the same picture on her blog on sunday. She insists my one is better, but I'm not too sure. Take a look for yourself.
