I drew these 2 months ago and totally forgot that i hadn't shown you. Suppose I've been very bee-like myself recently. Even though uni has finished, I've had a few jobs here and there to do, plus I'm now occasionally helping on photo shoots with a professional photographer, who is teaching me as we go along. The voluntary work is improving my experience of busy studios, lighting and communicating with a client. I have an upcoming fashion shoot with Strumpets Bazaar and a wedding to photograph :) both i'm very excited about. I'm recently wanting to push my photography and work on my illustration more personally. But you never know, let's wait and see :)

Charlie Cakes

Recently i got asked to design a logo for Charlie Cakes Cupcakes, baked by the lovely Charlotte Catmull. We met in a cafe and went through ideas. A cupcake and the name underneath was the main idea, we then expanded this by adding a little bit of charlotte's character for her love of sugar skulls, into a cherry. The colours bright pink, purple, teal and black were added to make the image very colourful. To add a sense of fun, we added stars and sprinkles. Charlotte was really happy with the design and it can be found on her facebook page on the link above. Please check out her page as the cupcakes are scrumptious :)

Fly for food

The birdhouse, that my dad, Jud made always attracts loads of birds and through the rain we had today they still kept flying over for food. So from my window I wanted to capture them in flight and gathering together. It's funny to watch them fight over food that my grandma leaves out for them. I love the blurr of the wings and the stationary look of their bodies as they hover in the air :) Just something to cheer people up on a day like today. Sometimes we need something as beautiful as a flock of birds to realise that their is more to the world and something to care about while riots and wars take place. I send my regards to all the people who have lost lives, family members, friends and businesses at this time.

Since I've been back home I've had a few bits here and there. When i got asked to photograph this lovely border collie for his family i was a little wary, as it's not something i would usually do. His name was Wilf, so playful and fun, but so so so camera shy, which left me with a challenge and made him more fun to shoot. After taking him out to the field and in his favourite spots in the house we soon found that Wilf's character came out through the camera. I was also asked as part of this commission to photograph the family's niece with wilf. Scary- Children and pets- together! Bless she behaved so well after a little cry which was unshown on the photos and she soon enjoyed it. Although these photos of the child and wilf were liked by the family, i have decided not to put them up for protection over the child. All in all this turned out to be an interesting project, allowed me to take up a challenge, find a decent printers around the area i live and helped me work with commissions.
