Peony Patterns

I have been trying my hand at making some repeat patterns for art licensing. I really like strong, saturated contrasting colours but I know its not for everyone so I've been trying to tone it down a bit.

Flower mania

Last night I went to a illustration business presentation in which the speaker spoke about 'style schizophrenia' and recommended keeping the same style for 1-2 years in order not to confuse art directors and people who might commission you. I had a mini heart attack because I have at least a couple styles (as illustrated above)! what to do, what to do? Maybe I will just make several portfolios.

I love a day at the zoo. My favourite animals in London zoo are probably the penguins, although I also have a soft spot for the hippo and the owl.

Portfolio overhaul

I have finished my MA and am now embarking on a massive overhaul of my illustration portfolio, which hopefully will involve lots of drawing, painting, and creating new characters. Today I have been painting Fashion Grandma.
