An Assortment of Illustrators



I took a couple of photos for my website of the book and thought i would share them on here too!
Its such a lovely thing to have at the end of our degree, better than a generic year book as its so relevant to what we've all been doing for 3 years. 
I would like to thank everyone who worked on it, as they worked so hard and it's really paid off. 
: )

A couple more editorials

The Three Little Aristocrat Pigs





Here are all four double page spreads from my children's book I entered into the Macmillan prize.
The Story is a take on the three little pigs, however the three little pigs are now very affluent and employ mr wolf when he is in need. They work him so hard he falls asleep! The three little pigs feel very bad and decide to throw him a party to apologise. Which makes everybody happy again : )

A Party of Jays






Here is my design for a book we are creating as a year at university on 'collective nouns'. I chose the collective noun 'a party of jays' and used a british jay to create a pattern.

FMP Mood Board



Here is my mood board as a source of inspiration for my final major project, for which I am using the Magic Flute as a starting point. I have found imagery that i find most inspirational from 1950's illustration & contemporary illustrators, folk art, packaging design, the magic flute costume and set design. I also want to use a limited colour palette and have placed some colour inspirations that caught my eye.

All images & sources can be found on my pinterest board.
