Personal // Lemur King! (Tribute to The Ring Tailed Lemurs of Madagascar)

A little personal piece I've gradually built on over the last few months. Lemurs are amazing little creatures with huge personalities and it is so sad that there are so few left in the wild. (90% of their Madagascan forest home has been lost to produce agricultural land for man's livestock). We must not let the remaining forests be destroyed, or we will lose these loving, funny little characters forever.

Twinings Infusions Packaging // My Watercolours!

These little mock-ups are a personal experiment I did earlier this year but silly me forgot to post them! I wanted to see how my style would look gracing the front of the lovely Twinings tea packaging. These fruits and herbs are from my November 2013 project: (here) and I added my own watercolour wash for the backgrounds.

I think the Twinings range kind of suits my watercolours...what do you think?

Mediterranean & Arabic Sweets: Baklava and Turkish Delight

Some little baklava and turkish delight. I did these alongside a project as they were sketches that didn't make the final cut but I decided to finish them anyway! :)

I enjoyed lots of baklava desserts and turkish delight sweets during travels to Greece, Turkey and Tunisia - have you tried them? Baklava are layers of filo pastry, syrup and ground nuts; the coconut and pistachio flavours are very popular. Authentic Turkish delight really is a "delight" that melts in the mouth, so good!


 Let me know what you think! :)

Sneak Peek // Red Wine

I've been much quieter than usual lately, very busy with work, family and trying to stay healthy! (i.e. life?)

I am now in the final stages of completing a large project that's been with me (on and off) since June. With no animals, flowers or fruit in sight it was daunting to say the least! Its been hard work but, I'm so pleased I've done it.

I'll share some sneak peeks before I have the go-ahead to release the full versions :)
