It’s been a busy month! I wanted to take the opportunity to sit down and reflect on what we've achieved in October.
This month I’ve had a number of big illustration projects on the go. I’ve taken on one project in particular, which will run into November, that I feel incredibly honoured to be trusted with. Without going into detail, this illustration project has a short turnaround, and the subject matter is of a sensitive nature. It’s been a really interesting challenge for me, to create illustrations with such complex, and troubling, emotions behind them - certainly a change from a lot of the whimsical children’s book illustrations I do!
On that note, the last children’s book I illustrated has reached a huge milestone this month, with my client getting the proof copies back from the printer. I’m beyond excited to share this project with you, it’s a very unique maze book, which should be out with plenty of time for you to get it under the tree for Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, less than eight weeks to go! So, if you, or your business, need copywriting or illustrations completed before the big day, this is your sign to reach out!
Anyway, enough of the doom and gloom of the end-of-year rush. I’ve also been working on helping Butters Brewin’ with their branding ahead of their launch (date TBD) so keep your eyes peeled, I’ll be sharing that soon on my social channels.
If you follow me on my socials already, you might have seen me having some fun in the lead-up to Halloween. If you missed it, I wanted to share my Halloween illustrations with you below, please let me know what you think!
A quick note on surface pattern design: not only is it beautiful on the inside cover of any book, it is an incredible asset to any brand! Think product packaging your customers will want to put on display, printed media that stands out from the rest, or websites and socials that excite! The world is your oyster when it comes to ways to use surface patterns, so feel free to book a Brainstorming Session with me if you’d like to discuss ways your brand could utilise it.
