This was a pitch I worked on for a high street fashion brand a month or two back. They needed some illustrated decorative elements to collage over photography.
It was one of those jobs where the brief was quite open at first but then quickly gets extremely specific as soon as you put pen to paper. I think often, people will not fully know what they want, until they see something that they definitely don't. So two or three shoe-horned attempts later, you're told you're just not the right illustrator for the job (despite that probably being quite apparent from the start.)
It's always a little frustrating, as it's hard to not feel like it's been a waste of time.. but in the same breath, when the hell else would I have drawn a peacock feather with a creepy eye in it surrounded by flowers?

My Rocky Votolato inspired illustration 'Weight For The Anchor To Keep Your Ship Here' is folded up and tucked away in the latest issue of dreamy Australian magazine Frankie. It's in the shape of a large pull-out poster with a calendar printed onto the back... and I'm made up with it, it's printed so nicely, I love Frankie Magazine!!
Also, to my lovely surprise.. one of my favourite photographers Annie Collinge is also in there with her amazing mermaid project. Go take a look : http://www.collinge.com/

This was a little private commission I got just before Christmas. It was a wide open brief for a portrait of the lovely fashion designer www.emmamanley.com and her two year old niece, Emily who is completely obsessed with her. I've drawn Emma before (over here) so it was lovely to do it again in slightly more bonkers surroundings.
I hope it made her laugh on Christmas day.
