Fun holiday inspired designs

It’s funny how the weather can influence what type of work you produce. As you well know (if you follow my blog), summer is my all time favourite season and I want to share with you a few, fun holiday inspired designs.

In winter, most people stay indoors to keep snug and warm. I’d say I’m at my happiest when the sun is shining, the days are longer and everybody comes out of hibernation.  Animals are usually hibernating in winter, too, so when the summer season starts, the world just feels more alive!

I create many different types of designs, to pass through to my agent. These include florals, children’s, Halloween, birthdays, Easter, Christmas designs and so on. Even though I produce Christmas designs all year round, it’s not easy, trying to feel the festive spirit in the middle of July! I’m sure lots of designers have this same issue! I’d much prefer to be thinking about the sun, sand, beaches and swimming pools, and these are all included in my recent work. I hope you like them.

Printsource August 2017 flyers

I’ve been busy lately, creating editorial illustrations and Printsource August 2017 flyers. I usually design stand alone illustrations and coordinating patterns for my agent, although this past couple of weeks, I have been designing illustrations for magazines, and I’ll share some with you in a future blog post. My aim was to add a touch of diversity to the range of designs in my portfolio.

Printsource isn’t too far away, so I’ve been designing flyers for this event too. This will be my first time exhibiting at Printsource, which, as you can imagine, I’m really excited about! I love the fact that it’s surface pattern for different products; apparel, bed and bathroom, kitchen, stationery, wallpaper, and much more. My portfolio has a variety of designs, so I think I now have each product type pretty much covered.

Here are a couple of flyers that will be used to advertise a taste of my recent work for the show. Both designs are themed for Summer and are different in style compared the ones I produced for Surtex and Blueprint. The first is a pretty floral composition and the second pattern is lobsters in the ocean.

Fingers and toes crossed that I do well!  😉
