ASOS Marketplace

I've been away from my blog for a few weeks (my other part-time job kind went full-time for a while!) Anyway, exciting news to unfold.... I am now selling my wares on ASOS Marketplace!

For now, I have only listed my favoured collar clip collection, consisting of my illustrated rose and owl designs. However, I am hoping to develop a larger range and expand on my collection over the next few months- so stay tuned.

Here mine is accompanied with my Warehouse acid wash denim shirt- perfect!

(I also sell a range of other gifts on Etsy)

I am back!

 After 10 days off - I have returned to the studio.

As many of my fellow illustrators will tell you, working as a freelancer can mean you leading a very isolated life at times. The hours spent in the studio working to deadlines, alone, day-by-day, (with only a pencil as a friend), means feeling quite lonely most of the time.

So, from having a ridiculously busy Christmas period, with my illustration work, as well as my part-time job, (and a poorly hand), it deemed necessary to plan a break for January.. and so I did.

First things first- to turn off all incoming emails and all social media notifications to my iPhone! (I was reluctant at first, but it had to be done to fulfill complete tranquility).

I then began my week by spending the first few days with my best pals, having laughs, in a hot tub, in the middle of nowhere, with lots of food and lots of drink. AMAZING. After returning, I spent the rest of my week taking it easy... spending more time with friends, family and my baby nephew. It was just what I needed, and I feel so much better for it.

I'm now back at my desk with a fresh head, full of ideas and lots of plans that I wish to accomplish this year!

Thank you to my friend Megan Kelly for these photographs. x
