What goes on in the rabbit hole?

haven't done one in a while... thought I'd get back into it
this was originally for moles but ended up doing bunnies, it gave it some colour with the carrots and greens
I like doing illustrations on woodland creatures - lets see how many more i can do..?

Home Sweet Home...

When the autumn leaves fall - the green leaf tree monster prepares his sugar cubes for the winter cold.
Another year of long journey's is over. its time to put his feet up and relax deep in the forrest where he calls home...

I've been meaning to do the treehouse for a while - i like the idea of the glowing windows - i imagine inside to be warm with a cup of hot chocolate! :)
the background gives great imagination to what else could be deep in these forests...

I Will Be Late No More!

The Cheshire Cat!
this cat always used to freak me out when i was young! how his face would dissapear but his yellow eye and cheesy grin would remain - quite creepy for a kids cartoon - but surely rememberable...

A Soldiers Heart

rd installation for "Inspire Me Alice"
this one is quite different to the other two - not so dark - and i really wanted to make this one bright and neat perfect - due to the queens garden and painted red roses

Friday, March 12, 2010

Which Way?

YAY! - another Inspire me Alice piece - im loving it!
I love the darkness and mysteriousness of the woods with that whacky colourful contrast.
Very proud of this one and have many more Inspire Me Alice pieces to come.. stay tuned!

Inspire me Alice...

I'm loving the new Alice in Wonderland craze!
I can't get enough of Mary Blair and 1950's Walt Disney...
I'm really proud of this one and look fwd for more to come - I love the contrast of the colours and the use of the texture and drop shadow - but not overloaded - I'm going to remember this setting for more illustrations

I think Alice is a great idea and can make a lot of illustrations look great...

look out for more Inspire me Alice pieces..

Betty Sue likes a swing or two!

Adventures of Dimpledum

I'm really happy about this one and excited about more to come - keeping true to my 50's theme i want to bring out more like this definitely.
I love drawing robots and I want to make Dimpledum a regular character, with crazy creations, also i get to incorporate rockets and science stuff which always goes had in hand with retroness!

Robots and Honey Pots

This year I'm going to really focus on keeping that 50's style, I think I went off the wagon with a few recent pieces ,but I'm back on track!
I haven't done covers in a long time and i missed working with fonts - so might start to do more with fonts like my original pieces
