Puzzle Illustration

So this is a project I meant to share a while ago - I was approached to create a custom illustration for an educational puzzle for a Canadian company!

It was such a blast working on this! Here are some close-up details:

Hey girl, whatcha doing?

When I was a kid I used to draw a crown on every character I scribbled. Even worms got teeny tiny crowns placed on their noggins! Illustration for a project that didn't go ahead.

Featured in Rockport Publishers' 1,000 Dog Portraits book!

6 months in and so far 2014 has been an amazing, whirlwind, non-stop, jam-packed, exhilarating adventure - so jam-packed that time to blog has been absolutely non-existent! But for the next 6 months and onwards, I intend to get better at blogging and let you in on this exciting adventure!

So to kick off, I'd like to share some fantastic news I received earlier this year - an illustration of mine was selected to appear in Rockport Publishers' new book, 1,000 Dog Portraits by Robynne Raye!

With 1000 illustrations of hounds, herding dogs, mutts, terriers, beagles, pugs and every dog you can think of, in 1000 different interpretations and styles (quirky, realistic, collage, paintings, drawings etc) this book is sure to be a great collection for all you canine lovers!

It is such an honour to be featured alongside the likes of Debbie Millman Marian Bantjes , Robynne Raye (Modern Dog Design Co.) Jessie Hartland , Joey Ellis , and a plethora of incredibly talented illustrators and designers!

It is also with a lot of mixed emotion that I share this news - at the end of that very same week after hearing such great news of being featured in the book, we lost the very family pet I had illustrated, to tick bite fever - how much life can change in the space of a week.

Sometimes life unfurls in the most mysterious, ironic ways.
