Some of you may have noticed I've been revamping the website and have been through several transitions in the past year.
First I dropped the lobster - remember the lobster - he was the first thing I drew for Spoonflower back in 2012 and sort of became my avatar for the last five, going on six years.
Here he is for those who have not met him ...perky little chap and still a firm favourite.
However with more hand drawn work taking over my current portfolio, he was drawn in Coreldraw, I figured it was time for a change. So I created a slick logo incorporating my initials – this is how I have signed my work since college – adding a sunshine smiley face.
He was thoroughly occupying space in my sketchbooks, I was experimenting with expressions at the time.
But yet again I felt the need for change
...for something that said Illustrator not just designer.
I chose this wee girlie -
epitomising my inner child and looking very like me at that age
- drawing an elephant.
I am still that child with the coloured pencils - maybe not lying on my stomach to draw, but still drawing as if my life depended on it!
