Three girls watching a scary film

The idea behind this image was to show the three young girls lit by the glow of the television. They are all terrified by the movie that they are watching. 

Maybe next time they should watch a comedy!

Christmas Themed Gift Tags

This weeks Illustration Friday topic is 'Snow'. I've had a root through my festive images and thought I'd share this one as it fits the bill.

I produced it a little while ago for a children's Christmas activity book along with many other festive themed images. It's a spot the difference activity deigned with young children in mind. Which reindeer is the odd one out? Can you spot it?

Girl licking a lolly

Here's an image from my sketchbook. 

I much prefer drawing animals to people so I thought I'd make myself draw a new human character for a change. I really enjoyed creating all the patterns for her jumper!

 It's drawn using Pigma Micron pens. I haven't got round to scanning it yet but I will do some time and post the results when it's done.

Family going on holiday
 This week's Illustration Friday topic is 'Explore' so I thought I'd post an illustration that I think fits the bill. 

It's taken from a series of three Holiday themed children's activity books. I'll post them below. The covers feature the same family on holiday exploring the world in various modes of transport. I tried to keep them linked together by using a similar colour palette throughout. They were sold packaged together so needed a unified look.

The aeroplane cover was eventually changed, at the publishers request, to be a plane flying over green fields. I, however, still prefer the snowy mountains version so that's the one I'm sharing with you today!

Fat bird on a wire
My entry for the Illustration Friday topic of the week, 'Stretch'.

This rather portly bird and her friends were created digitally using Adobe Illustrator.This is a brand new image created specifically with the topic 'Stretch' in mind.
