To Protector, with Love

Hello there! What do you for love eh? It's my beloved boyfriend's birthday and I thought I make a handmade birthday card (right under his nose) without him noticing. The illustration is of the protector surrounding his arms with love. 
P.S The animals are us based on our Chinese Year.
Until then, xxx

Maxjenny Forslund

All finished! My submissions for Amelia's Magazine Open Fashion Brief. I have chosen to illustrate talented and dynamic Maxjenny. Couldn't help myself, such luscious colours. Nevertheless I really enjoyed painting them while holidaying in Wales :)

Back from Wales!

Hello! How have you all been?
I am back from my trip to Aberystwyth, Wales. Finished the Coastal walk challenge to raise money for kids for learning difficulties, it was hard, steep and LOTS of variety of poo, cow poo, sheep poo, goat's poo. You get the gist.

 However the view was marvellous, a sight to see. With me on the challenge was my best friend and her family, with charity box in our hand, our part of the challenge is finished and next partakers can go on from where we have left of. Go on and donate even just a £1, we raised nearly £200 ourselves! Donate here.

Unfortunately there was a slow wifi connection at the cottage we were staying so it was quiet on the internet duties :(

While I was at Wales, I was ambitious to do four paintings to submit to Amelia's Magazine Open Fashion Brief. Packing most of my acrylics, paper and brushes I stupidly forgot my mug and palette, gah, So I brought a souvenir mug and party plates. Here a little sneak peek of the WIP.

My best friend's family never had seen an artist paint before, so it was odd having an audience, I didn't mind. Had a bundles of companions while I was painting, a litter of cats!

Quick post for tonight before  leaving for Wales. (I'll miss my beloved)  Random clearance of my art materials, I might as well put to good use with this sketch or paint express as I call it. Been so busy lately this week, by next week I will be doing my charity walk for kid's with learning difficulties! So excited and hectic Until next time. xx

Somewhere Sometime: Brick Lane!

Went to the Somewhere Sometime exhibition in East Gallery in Brick lane which exhibits many talented illustrators I know, especially they are in the year above me at Westminster's University.
Rachel of Precious Little

It was really lovely to catch up and see "Life AFTER Uni," the graduate's life. Also as a plus, it was great to see Rachel of (@precious_little) who previously done work for Amelia's Magazine. Check it out! Also check out Rachel blog on Private view. Loads of people to browse and be inspired. 

Riccie, me and Rachel

Including Riccie, a designer/illustrator using collage and papercuts especially of food and litter dropped in various locations of London. The asparagus was my favourite. Yum.

Exhibition on until Weds 7th July. So head over and see! While you're there enjoy Brick Lane. If you haven't been to Brick Lane, to define: it's exhilarating, smelly and exotic and chaotic. Me and my beloved keeps stopping every time there was a stall with odd trinkets, vintage items. He wanted to impulsively buy Plane googles to look bad ass. So next time we'll go to Brick Lane instead of Oxford St.

Another addition to Amelia's Magazine. Lucky Amelia went to Climate Camp at Glastonbury and blogged her daily events on the happenings and going ons. See it here. Much Better than World Cup methinks. 

Illustration of band GET CAPE. WEAR CAPE. FLY! Using more summer, sun-kissed colours me hopes. What do you think?
