The "Rey of Sunshine" Collection

So, it's always good to have a little rey of sunshine, even at Christmas time and
yesterday i finally got round to posting a variety of cards which i have been busy
making since leaving Uni. Most of these are cards for friends and family which they are
paying me to make. Today you can see the Christmas Collection.

Why is England so wet all the time?!
Silly England.
Well, it's Summer! (If we can call it that) and in between working at a college near me
i am currently coming up with oodles of ideas for the next children's book!!
Yesterday i bought a new special watercolour pad, black ink and a new dip pen.
SOOO excited!
I'm working on a few little things at the moment just to keep up the drawing and to stop me from going insane being an ordinary 9-5 working gal o_O Real life blows.

Might just get lost in some Burty Bats and lost little polar bears.

But first i'm off to London to see my old housemate from Uni!
Check out her photography at

I'll keep you up to date with more happening but i still can't scan stuff in.
It's time for a new plan.
Find my camera.

Pirate Pin up girl tattoo. Idea two.
My mate wants to get a pirate pin up girl tattooed on his leg
so i drew this for him,
He wanted her to have bigger boobs, black hair and a hat,
so i redrew it. It was a fun little task.
I totally admire pin up and love drawing
the female form.

The End

Well, yesterday i handed in the last ever piece of work i will do at Uni.
It was a stressy day but everything got in on time!! yay!
I made a massive envelope made out of sugar paper but my tutor wasn't impressed
haha he gave me a bag with some cute animals on it to keep all my work in!

I suddenly feel really lost but i'm just keeping myself busy with illustrating and staying creative.
It's going to be weird not being a student anymore.
Onwards and upwards though! Really excited and scared about the future!
I will upload more work shortly. Stay posted!

On another note, our uni degree show starts the 28th May and will be up for about a month!
Head on down and check it out at the university of Gloucestershire!

Lovefluffs! xx

It's been a while....

Hey all!

I know it has been quite a while since i last updated, yup yup, before christmas! but it has been so manic at the moment that i just haven't had time to update the ol' blog, but keep your eyes peeled, there will be more work coming to your screens very shortly!

I am currently still working on the interactive children's book which will hopefully be made into a proper book and taken to the London Book Fair in April! (Not too far off now!) As well as this the end of Uni Research Project is currently underway! I am making interactive magazines to take into a primary school to find out whether characters, bright colours and a storyline help with a child's learning!


Wish me luck <3
