I realised that I hadn't posted some conceptual work I produced for a company, way back in early summer. I guess it didn't seem right to until I heard either way if it was going to be used! As it happens, the company sent a few follow up emails and then I didn't hear from them again.
However I really enjoy this mini project, to produce an Easter range for a childs party set, including cake decorations and table attire. It was a conceptual project and therefore the images are fairly rushed, and just needed to convey an idea. I truly love work like this, and hell I may even make it all anyway, some day!
Click for details, the pictures are much nicer close up!
The company also produced Cake Boxes for an individual cupcake. These were my concepts.
I think I'm going to set myself a few more conceptual projects over 2012, and hope to pick up some conceptual commissions to boot! I sometimes feel that I'm much stronger in conceptualising than producing an illustration, but only time will tell!
I'd really like to hear your thoughts on these pieces, sorry I kept them in the dark for so long! x

Wow, was it really August that I last posted? Time flies and so much has been going on. I guess it's time for a bit of an update! Firstly, thank you so much to everyone who voted for my work "The Three Little Pigs" on the Uncovered Art blog, I'm very happy to announce that I was 2nd, and am now the proud owner of The Show & Tell Illustration book. So THANK YOU!!
As a 'life' update, my boyfriend finally got a job nearby and now we live together, we our big silly chocolate labrador. And so face now has a constant smile smeared right across it (even when he leaves his towels all over the bathroom), but he's really encouraging me to produce more, and make 2012 a very prosperous year for my work, we hope!
Talking of work, I've been doing dribs and drabs over the last Autumn season. Moving my boyfriend in seems to have eaten most of my time, so much paperwork and bits to organise!
I took a commission for a Wedding, which came totally out of the blue. The client had my details for an exhibition which I unfortunately had to pull out of due to a death in the family, but she called me a few weeks later asking me to illustrate an 'Owl and the Pussycat' themed wedding invitation. I would have been reluctant if it hadnt been to do with a children's book!
It was to be used as a working postcard, I have taken the details off but you get the idea. They were having the wedding service in a Castle, and then a big festival style party the next day, with tipi's and fire pits, sounds wonderful!
I've also got some very exciting news coming up in the next few weeks (although I fear it'll roll into 2012 with Christmas just around the corner)... and its publishing related! Watch this space.
Thanks for checking back, come again soon! x
