Willow Tree Wedding Illustration

A few months ago, a friend from the studio asked if I would do a custom illustration for her wedding invitations. They were getting married by a willow tree, so she wanted that incorporated 🙂 It was definitely fun to do, I sort of wanted a Golden Book feeling… and of course it was soContinue reading “Willow Tree Wedding Illustration”

Oscar Posters 2015

I have been holding out to see “Selma” before posting these, but I still have not been able to find that anywhere…. alas one day I will, and shortly thereafter add my version of the poster to this collection. There were 8 nominees this year, and I decided against seeing “American Sniper”. So I willContinue reading “Oscar Posters 2015”

A commission: Steve & Carolyn

One of my favourites things to do is to do sketches or illustrations for people for special occasions. It is always surprising when people contact me, and what they want drawn – it’s never a dull moment!

But this oneContinue reading “Showing the process of digital painting – ish.”

This was the first year I decided to jump into the Movember ring and try to raise some money for men’s cancer. Tams and I have men in our life who have been affected by this… and let’s face it, we all know or love someone who has been touched by this. Let’s do whatContinue reading “A Mo’- Success!”

Day 29 – My Dad

My Dad is probably my most favourite man on the planet. While we may not agree on everything, he is the most generous, loving and funny man I know. I am so thankful he is my Dad! He had the best handlebar stache in the 70s, so I had to sketch it for Movember 🙂Continue reading “Day 29 – My Dad”
