Mermaid Shoal

The fourth mermaid illustration I did for Mer May! I loved this concept of a shoal of mermaids, and I wanted to make it into a design I could actually use, so this one is available to purchase on my Redbubble as a variety of lovely items including t-shirts and tote bags!

Death Followed on the Silk Road

A response inspired by the Pop My Mind seed ‘Silk Road’. The Silk Road was a historical trade route which ran from Japan through to the Meditteranean Sea. Along with the valuable goods transported along it, diseases like the plague also travelled the trade route. This piece was inspired by that fact – death running the same route as philosophy and spices.

Evilyn – Lordi Girl #4

Hey look, it’s that series that I make one thing a year for! Next in the Lordi Girls series is Evilyn, based on the song of the same name. I still love the concept of what I’m doing, but not so much the way I’m making them anymore. So this probably isn’t the last ever Lordi Girl that I’ll make but the next one’s probably going to look a little different. Maybe. We’ll see.

Lordi Girl 3

Lyrically Induced Agony

A piece made for Pop My Mind, inspired by Katie Borkins ‘Sense the Sounds’. Exploring the way that music or certain sounds can trigger painful memories or negative emotions.

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

I read Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell last year, and it was so good. Funny, charming, magical and utterly enjoyable – I highly recommend you check it  out if you like period pieces with a touch of magic. So of course, I illustrated some of the characters. I wanted to so pretty much all of them, but I narrowed it down to four for now. I may come back and do more later if I can find the time among everything else I’m trying to do!

After using gold for Opulent, I wanted to try it in some of my other illustrations and see if it could still work, and I think with these I succeeded with using it to add some magic to the pieces. I’m working on some illustrations for a couple of scenes and locations from the novel too, so look out for those next month.

Noveau Divine

noveau-divine

We are beyond the new rich now, the world is home to the new divine, with wealth enough to make themselves gods.

A response on Pop My Mind the theme of Opulence. One of the largest pieces I have ever made, and appropriately enough, is inspiring me to continue to work bigger and grander.
