I was super excited to be invited to take part in the exhibition Women in Print by Jane Bowyer, illustrator, designer and all-round good egg. I'm exhibiting alongside some top-class female artists, so I feel very flattered to be asked to contribute. The launch is tonight at Rudy's Pizza Place, one of my favourite pizza joints in Manchester. It runs til the 30th of August, so get yourself down and buy some prints, all proceeds go to Manchester Women's Aid. Prints, pizza and beer, what's not to like??

So far I have made a cover for a colouring book, designed a Christmas ornament and illustrated a tarot card.
Last month's brief was to draw characters for a children's book, based on vicunas. So fun!
I think the colouring book assignment was my favourite, I absolutely loved drawing women's faces and hair, so I will keep on trying to improve my portrait skills. Next up is flowers and lettering, here are my sketches so far:
It's been a good opportunity to practice brush lettering, after the ace workshop I attended with Artsy Nibs. I would really recommend Joyce's classes, really fun and good value for money!
