Heimtextil and Printsource promotional flyers

In January 2018, which is in approximately four weeks time, I will be exhibiting at two trade shows; Heimtextil and Printsource.

My agent will be representing me for both shows, although it would be great to go to at least one, just to take a glimpse at all the gorgeous designs. I have actually been to Heimtextil, but it was some years ago. The company who I was working for at the time were exhibiting and I got the chance to take a good look around. From what I remember, it was huge!

I want to share with you my Heimtextil and Printsource promotional flyers. They illustrate some of the themes I have within my design collections. For Heimtextil, I give a sneaky preview of my tropical homedecor range and for Printsource, I show just one of my summer fruit card designs.

Here are my final designs

I’m still busy producing work for the shows and I’m hoping to get a few more commissions and sales, at these events. Well I’ll just have to wait and see!

I’d like to just mention that I’ve been featured on another blog. This time on Swatch & Repeat by the lovely Jen. If you fancy a read, grab yourself a cuppa and nip on over.

Jen was interested in my journey, from when I was young girl, doodling in my sketchbooks, my time studying surface pattern at university through to where I am now. It’s definitely been challenging at times and I am sure many other designers will relate to that. Picking up from where I left off (which is what I did after leaving teaching) felt like I was starting all over again as a new designer. My advice is that it’s hard work establishing yourself as an artist/designer but if you want to pursue your dreams, you’ll get there in the end with dedication and commitment.  🙂

Family Christmas commission

Social media is a wonderfully powerful medium, especially for designers. Only a couple of weeks ago, I produced three wintry scene illustrations, each with colourful houses. I loved creating these and they appeared to be pretty popular with the general public. As a result of my designs being seen on Instagram by someone, I was hugely fortunate and honoured for her to ask me to create an illustration of her family.

For the commission, I was asked to produce a family scene, consisting of all of them standing outside their house, with their two gorgeous bulldogs. I managed to capture the playfulness of the pet dogs and the bond between all the family members.

Every year, the family put up colourful fairy lights, and these were the final touch to the illustration. They add a little more colour against the white backdrop and also balance nicely with the colourful outfits worn by the family.

Here is the final illustration including the family name, followed by close ups of each of the family.

It would be fantastic to get more commissions like this one, incorporating my love for drawing people, animals, architecture and nature.

*Please refrain from using the illustrations. Thank you kindly!  🙂
