This is one of my most popular illustrations on Pinterest! Not sure why people like it so much but as the song goes, people are strange! (In a good way obviously!) Whatever the reason, I’m really glad it’s a popular one as I had fun drawing it! #thelostboys #the80s #echoandthebunnymen #thedoors
In the words of Bart Simpson (or was it Pee Wee Herman), this has to be one of the best come back lines ever. Always a good one to have up your sleeve when you just don’t have the words! You’re welcome!
Just in case it wasn’t blatantly obvious, I have a hopelessly devoted, unforgivingly nostalgic love of films from the 80s. Here’s my latest offering to the gods of 80’s nostalgia - a hand lettered piece in honour of Sloth’s love for Chunk. All you Goonies fans will know what this means but if you were born in the 90s, well, I guess this is probably just ancient history…
With Valentine’s Day getting closer I decided to continue with my ‘Love Story’ theme and release my next digital product on Creative Market. The Love Story "Perfect Couple" Portrait Creator is a fun and quirky design kit with all the tools you need for creating your perfect illustrated couple!
I created a whimsical collection of hand drawn, hand painted portraits to personalise and make your own with an endless combination of hairstyles, accessories and illustrated elements.
This was a really fun project to work on and became another ‘labour of love’ in the end! It was handpicked by the team at Creative Market and featured on their weekly email as well as their home page so I was really pleased! I have a few more hairstyles I’d like to add to it and a few more ideas for accessories so there will definitely be an update in the next few weeks so watch this space!

I am proud to announce that my ‘Love Story’ Illustrations are now available on Over - the brand building app that’s inspiring the world to create.
At Over, they believe that no matter who or where you are, you should be able to pick up your phone, open their app and design whatever you need – whether it’s a quick birthday card, a logo, or an engaging social media campaign.
It’s really exciting to be featured on such a great app and I can’t wait to see my illustrations being used on social media in lots of different ways! Keep a look out for them - especially around Valentines Day!
I’ve recently been working on a personal project for my Creative Market shop and am very proud to introduce ‘Love Story’ - a beautiful hand painted design kit full of gouache style illustrations, seamless patterns and hand lettering.
‘Love Story’ is a whimsical collection of hand drawn and hand painted illustrations celebrating the theme of love. It has a pretty pastel colour palette enhanced by a dark velvety background of navy giving the illustrations a contemporary look and feel which is very on trend at the moment. Perfect for print and screen, these illustrations come pre-made and also as separate elements so you can create your own ‘Love Story’.
The pack includes gouache style illustrations of hearts, flowers, love birds, stars, leafy foliage and much more. There are also seamless patterns and ready-made hand lettered phrases, all perfect for greetings cards, gifts, stationery, invitations, branding and even textiles and fabrics.
Love Story was ‘hand-picked’ by the staff at Creative Market and featured on their website home page which was very exciting!
I’ve really enjoyed working on Love Story and can safely say it was a ‘labour of love’. I can’t wait to start my next project but in the mean time why not check it out and see what you think…
