This is Orchid mk 2. Orchid mk 1. died when we went to Egypt and left it for our flatmate to water.
I'm trying to get into the habit of drawing our plants while they're alive as they don't tend to have a very long shelf life. Tips appreciated.
I graduated from Loughborough University with a BA in Illustration in 2004. Since then I have worked in animation, television, illustration, education and marketing in a variety of creative roles.
I'm currently based in Coventry employed as a freelance illustrator.
My illustration style is clean and versatile and has been used in a variety of mediums from children's art shows to podcasts. I combine Photoshop with pencil and ink sketches, photography and found textures to suit the nature of the commission. I am inspired by my love of travel and you can often find textures and patterns collected from around the world in my work.
