Poppy & Fern

My new favourite things to draw are poppies & mushrooms. This drawing took a day & I'm really happy with the result. Girls faces are definitely improving!

Weddings are wonderful!

I was delighted to be asked to design the invite for my brother Oliver's wedding. I gave this a vintage & woodland feel complete with forest floor & fawn.

Side plait

Messing around with shapes & hair for this one- it's ok!

Why so sad?

This was one of those drawings that was a quick sketch which I didn't like. I rubbed it out then went over it again & again. I adopted quite a messy scratchy style & quite liked the result.

Sketchbook camping

Did this sketch whilst relaxing on one of our many camping trips.

Gypsy horse

I've loved horses since I could walk & have always wanted to own one! Haven't drawn one for years & thought I'd take a break from drawing pretty girls! I used my new Prismacolor pencils for this. I think I managed to achieve the soft velvety skin of the muzzle with these.

B-girl

Loving the east London street label Hardware London. Celeb fans inc Rita Ora & Cara Delevigne. Tough apparel with lots of attitude. Did this drawing after seeing the s/s 13 ad campaign with girl wearing a leopard skin snap-back.
