Just a few from the sketchbook. Enjoy :)

Yes I did cheekily use the cut out tool... but I love this effect.

The Nothing fish final book

Finally completed.. a bit visually WHOA. But if you look at an actual coral reef, they are quite mental. Enjoy! Actually having a look through.. some of the pages probably need a little re-do...

The Nothing Fish Current Pages

This was how today went...

Been quite productive, worrying slightly that the mass colour is a bit garish. But its been fun, I'm half way there I think.

The Illustrated World of Katie Macon

It certainly is a colourful one. We are having portfolio reviews, though I will have a physical copy I thought I also ought to have a digital one too... I know I've included quite a few old works... but I'm very fond of them.

Professional Practice Reflection

So I've been working on my professional practice unit, as part of that I have to create an online booklet explaining various aspects of my creative journey throughout my degree. Feel free to have a look, I promise it's full of pictures!

Blue Fish

A blue fish for your enjoyment. Ink and pencil colour.

The Bird Book Issuu Zine

I have a real thing for drawing birds, so a zine dedicated to them seems rather appropriate no?

I will have physical copies ready by next week so if anyone is a collector of artists books and fancies a copy, no doubt they'll end up in my etsy shop so keep an eye out.

Bird drawings

Few drawings from a bird zine I'm making. Gotta love working with inks.

Pheasants are Pleasant

As always, whenever I get sick of whatever I'm drawing, birds always fill my arty void. Pheasants are pleasant, are they not? 

Just keepin' it real.

The Nothing Fish

Here you go chaps, a little preview into my next book. It's going to be very colourful! I have chosen to set it in a fictional coral reef, just so i can get away with lots of colour and odd objects.
