On My Mind. A monthly mix of thoughts, inspiration, sparks of genius, beauty and laughter.
The Ebb & Flow of Creativity: This autumn I’m focusing on expanding and updating my portfolio with new work. My freelance work where I create illustrations for e-learning is confidential and I cannot display any of that work, so I felt I needed to take the time to update samples of my work for display. You’ll find a new series of trios, collections with one placement, a hero pattern and a coordinating pattern as well as some editorial illustrations. This Scandi Folk Christmas collection is an example.
Film: Pain and Glory by Pedro Almodóvar at the Grand.
In my Kitchen: A pot of tea and lentil soup. Apple, blackberry and cinnamon crumble.
On my Balcony: Parsley. Mint. Sage. Heather.
Reading: Circe by Madeline Miller.
On my Radar: In a time of celebrity culture, digital noise and climate crisis, I think it’s important to unite. Hear all voices, all ages, all origins, rather than let the climate crisis divide us. It’s not just Greta Thunberg: why are we ignoring the developing world’s inspiring activists?.
On my Palette: Shades of mustard and lime. Plum. Tweed. Brick red.
