Happy Cat

What happens inside those quaint houses I drew yesterday? I think they’re rather nice, cosy homes. This cat lives in one and he certainly thinks that they are-and knowing cats he probably lives in several of them!!

Little House

Some colour experiments on my favourite type of house; a Victorian style villa! They have so much character.

I feel like colour is something you can always improve on so I’m doing my best to find some schemes which really pop –  and some which have subtle harmony.

I’m working on little pieces to improve my work technically at the moment. Although I know my central illustration style, experimenting and change is vital to improving. You can always improve!

Live Drawing at Lincoln Christmas Market

I recently stumbled across the few photos we got of my live drawing event at the Hawkwood Books stall at the Christmas Market last year. I didn’t get any photos of the children’s portraits I did, but it was very popular. The goal was for each portrait to take less than five minutes.

The family portrait included here was done from a photograph for a young woman whose father had passed away only days ago, who wanted a picture of her family together.

Superdrug Rebrand Concept- WORK IN PROGRESS

 

Print

With its vegan-friendly products, affordable prices and over 800 stores across the UK, Superdrug is the second largest health and beauty retailer in the UK.

In my opinion the logo, colour scheme and overall design of the store has become quite dated, and does not reflect the cruelty-free and health conscious aspects of the brand. My idea is to update the branding and logo to keep up with current trends in beauty branding and marketing, without losing the brand’s friendly and accessible feel and affordable prices.

Initial packaging mock ups. These are extremely rough concepts playing with ideas:

initial design ideas

01 Dispenser Bottle PSD Mockup2

My intention is to produce a label design with versatile, adjustable elements which can be applied to any label shape and size.

Printface wash

I developed the label design for several products in the Superdrug Skincare range, producing my own vector mockups of the range’s current packaging. I choose to do this mostly because the line is intended to be affordable, and using the current packaging could keep production costs down.

At this stage, I have not yet added any illustrative elements such as the watercolour texture used in the above mockup.
