London fashion week illustration and christmas cards

So these are the illustrations i created for Amelia's Magazine, please head over to the article and have a look at all the designers and other illustrators work, Amelia's Magazine i was really excited to do two illustrations  from the designers at london fashion week. The designers are laura Theiss and Cecilie Bahnsen, the opportunity has been fantastic i don't often have to churn out two complete illustrations in a few days. But it was a really exciting opportunity. 
I really enjoyed using the detail of the watercolours, the top image took alot of work but it was really exciting to do it within a few days,  But it really did boost my excitement for doing more.
This was a really great opportunity that popped up at the right time after a bad situation, so its given me a re-newed energy in myself as an illustrator.
Today i have spent alot of time in my studio, working hard on my on my Paper heart children's book, i having been really geeky, swotting up on illustration agencies and publishing information. Its alot of reading and alot of organization.

So i have also been watching far to many films in my studio today, i watched, yes man because of zooey deschannel, sinbad the sailor I'm not really sure why i watched that, but my favorite has to be Elf, this is really inspired me to create some really cool illustration cards for christmas, so i decided i would show the range of christmas cards up for sale, i am also working on more. These will be available at
