Merry Christmas!

I’d like to wish all my lovely readers a Merry Christmas! Christmas day is only one more sleep away and I’m pretty much organised with the food preparations! Yayy, go me! ….although, I still have a few more pressies to wrap, which shouldn’t take long to do.

I’ll be cooking the food on Christmas day, which I don’t mind at all (I love cooking!). We’re going to have a spiced prawn starter, followed by turkey with all the trimmings, then a Christmas pud alternative! I saw a recipe on the ‘This Morning’ programme. It’s a classical twist on the Christmas Pudding by Prue Leith. I’ve decided to use caramel ice-cream with toffee in my version ….mmmmm yummy….

What a super busy month I’ve had with client work. In between jobs, I’ve created a few festive illustrations, which I’d like to share with you.

Merry Christmas!

I’ve been wanting to animate my illustrations, after seeing quite a few on social media. Animation just adds another dimension and brings the artwork to life (you can see that the first and last designs are animated). Well actually, I must confess that it was my lovely husband who animated them! He will definitely have to show me how to do this one day 🙂

I hope you have a wonderful time over the holidays!

Bonfire Night illustration

I’d like to share a bonfire night illustration I recently created.

At the moment I’m into darker colours, whether that’s perhaps seasonal, because of the nights drawing in or I’m just steering away from brighter colours.

I love colour don’t get me wrong, but I’ve seen many illustrations where they’ve used brown and greys with brighter tones. I’ve actually always loved these colour palettes but not had the confidence to use these shades in my own work. Greys and browns have a calming effect and they harmonise yet contrast well with brighter colours I think.

I’ve created a bonfire scene which gives a kind of warming effect. I love how the sky is busy with the exploding fireworks, yet on the ground, it’s chilled, with the fox sleeping near the warm smouldering bonfire.

 

Have a good bonfire night and stay warm & safe.
