bespoke zine issue 6


Hey guys,
Even more exciting news! My illustration is the cover art for the new issue of bespoke zine. It's ready to pre order now from bespokezine.com so make sure you get your copy! I am loving seeing my illustration used as banners and advertising bespoke. It is such a sweet little zine filled with lots of interesting articles on art and craft, photography and all things vintage. To be the cover artist for this issue is just so amazing and such great exposure for me. I am feeling very lucky!

The Fried Hula


Hello World,
So I just submitted this illustrated recipe to They Draw & Cook. I hope it gets put up, it's my own special recipe I made up for BBQs. Being a vegetarian I get sick of eating salads when everyone else eats sausages and burgers around me. The Fried Hula has become a hit with vegetarians and meat eaters!

Migration Myths



So I was asked to be part of Spoonful Zine issue 6 and the brief was to create an illustration of a hummingbird. Not knowing all that much about humming birds I did a little research and found a really funny myth about their migration patterns. For some reason people had trouble believing these tiny birds could migrate unassisted and therefore came up with the theory that they hitchhiked a ride on the backs of geese.
This is completely untrue but the idea made me laugh so I tried to create a kind of retro travel poster for hummingbirds. Hope you like it!! You can check out the zine at just by clicking on the neat little round button below :)

woodland creatures are so hot right now.


Hello again!

Recently I went to a craft market in Sydney and I noticed that almost every stall was selling items that had either owls, foxes, rabbits or deers/ stags on them. It made me laugh, but with the intensions of selling my work at markets soon I thought I should get in on the woodland creature action as they were selling like hot cakes! So I am selling out in my own quirky way I guess. Ah well...

Bath Time!


Another illustration for the spoilt series, inspired by dog spas. I hope you get a giggle out of it!
I think this illustration also works really well for this weeks theme on illustration friday which is Fluid :)

Gangs of Hyde Park


Hello World,

So a few years back while I was in London I went for a walk in Hyde Park. For some strange reason a gang of squirrels and pigeons chased me out of the park. Ever since then I have wanted to illustrate this image and I have finally given myself to do this. I hope you enjoy it!
