Contagious have tipped us as a contender for a Cannes Lion this year for the GIFFEELINGS Project that we have been working on for Dominos over the past year.

Very exciting stuff! We are keeping our fingers crossed!

DIGITAL DOODLE

I thought i'd have a go at doing a freehand digital doodle, using Photoshop and a Wacom tablet. For my first attempt I think it's ok. I had fun, so it doesn't matter either way.

THROW BACK THURSDAY

I found some of my old sketches from 2009 which I now am in love with!  

So different to the work I do now and yet I love them!

BUBBLY BOOBIES IN JACUZZIS

At work a few weeks ago we were tasked with making GIFs for a client, that represented how the gym makes you feel. I was reminded of a time with my large-boobied friend Clare many years ago. A very relaxed trip to the sauna.

So I illustrated it, and Robbie animated it.

Digital Painting FUN TIMES

I spent an hour learning how to make cool painting brushes in a Photoshop tutorial. Then by the time I had gotten to the "fun" painting bit. I was bored. The tutors accent was driving me mad. So I stopped.

But. I did play with the brushes and made some cute colour paintings for some gorgeous people on the app Sktchy.

I think they look pretty cool.

Characters in an Ad Agency

I have been working alongside a Creative Director to create characters that represent the different departments in an ad agency. 

Here's what i've been up to so far.

FORMULA 1 2016 SEASON

I'm currently working on a series of illustrations for Shell and Ferrari for the 2016 Formula 1 Season. The first of the series is live on Social Media now, but there are many more to come.

Here's a cheeky look-see before the whole project gets added to my portfolio.

ICE CREAM YUM TIMES

It's Summer... Finally. After an ice cream fuelled week I felt inspired to create some ice cream illustrations.

LONDON MAP

This week I have been working on a London map for a client. Having fun working with a limited colour palette and trying to make a nice composition whilst trying to keep the map relatively accurate. Relatively ha ha.

F FOR FARM

Also last week, one of the Iris Design Group Heads set a challenge in the studio to create a letter from the alphabet. I picked 'F' out of the hat. So I made a farm in the shaped of an F.

ILLUSTRATION FOR THE STYLE SHACK

A friend of mine is starting up a new blog. She messaged me last night and asked if I would do her a header image.

Its a fashion and lifestyle blog called 'The Style Shack', so the illustration needed to be more fashion led, completely out of my normal style.

I doodled as always, and then created some layered textures in Illustrator, and used some watercolour brushes to finish it off.

Great fun. More soon I think...
