Independent Birmingham Membership Card re-design finished!

I am so proud to share this design for the brand new Independent Birmingham membership card. IB are all about championing Birmingham as THE destination for the independents. Fitting the city within a location motif was the main concept for this design with an after-work mood visualised by a sunset colour palette.

Photoshoot: Mary Beary's Soggy Bottom

I have this week finished painting Mary Beary, and next I will varnish her so she is weatherproof for her 3 month stay at Resorts World

I love tiny details and have put meticulous detail into her pearls ...

... and array of dessert spoons, always prepared for a piece of cake or a well-baked bakewell.

The face has eyelash details and some realistic eyes to emulate Mary's baby blues!

Holly Golightly at The Electric!

I am working on a Breakfast at Tiffany's themed design for the Electric Cinema, taking it back to the early 60s with pastel and champagne colours.

The design features both the Tiffany's store seen in the opening credits along with the closing segment including the yellow taxi.

The design will be available as part of the gift voucher in early summer 2017!

Update: The Big Sleuth 2017 and Painting Progress!

The Big Sleuth Learning Resources

I worked on a great project in November 2016 for The Big Sleuth's learning pack as part of the education programme.
They have since been published and distributed to schools with the illustrations as chapter headers telling the story of the sun bear.
