Candle packaging illustrations for TK Maxx

I spotted this packaging I'd designed for candle tins in TK Maxx and couldn't resist a pic!

New christmas candles

A little peek at some candle design packaging I illustrated for this Christmas, will hopefully have some high res pictures soon. I used lots of lovely black pens to hand draw and create line drawings of all the flowers, before digitally colouring it afterwards. 

Pirate Party!

Spotted some more additions to the Pirate Party range I illustrated for Talking Tables, love the little skull as a cake topper! I might have to invest for my next birthday, the big 3-0!

Blog header illustration commission

Recent branding logo illustration and banner design for Changebytes blog, I had a very detailed brief from Laura who had lots of ideas about how she wanted the blog to look, this is what we came up with.  It had to include the pixels in different colours, and incorporate different mini icons into the header too along with the strap line 'dream it, plan it, do it, change it'.

I had lots of fun hand drawing all of the intricate type with my trusty black pens! 

See the site here http://changebytes.co.uk/

This might top the most 'interesting' things I've drawn list..

A recent commission for Glamour magazine was to illustrate 24 objects for a piece titled 'Sex Souvenirs'

I've included the less weird ones.. let's say my amendment emails from the art editor did make me giggle!

They asked for a line drawn style similar to this book project  of mine,  using black line drawing filled with watercolour washes. It was lots of fun despite the odd subject matter!

Handmade Greeting Cards

I spotted some of the handmade cards I'd designed at Portico Designs at the new Clintons store this weekend, they have completely re-branded and it looks very different! These cards have foil, flitter (card industry word for glitter - no idea why it's different!!) pad-on's and gems.

Knight Party for Talking Tables

Here's a new Knight Party range I created last year for Talking Tables to accompany the Princess Party. They have artworked them onto some really fun products, more to come soon!

Ripe Digital

Ripe Digital are an amazing printers based near me in Bath and were an amazing help donating prints to the charity exhibition I organised and curated last year, hellohead.

They specialise in small print runs and are always working on some lovely things for all of the top illustrators and designers.

So was nice to see the candle packaging they print for The Country Candle Company as a case study on their site here. The world of design is a small one!
