A Papercut Picnic!

I’m so excited to share the latest addition to my portfolio with you all, in the form of this oh-so-summery paper picnic scene! It is created entirely from cut paper and constructed with the help of a little a lot of bluetack! I love the 3D aspect that my work has been naturally evolving over the past year or so and I think the shadows add a real depth. This sunny little scene was used by Bridgeman Studio Berlin, and featured as their picture of the week in Germany! Fantastisch! Here’s the finished illustration and some behind the scenes snaps!

Illustrations for Practical Pre-School Magazine

Even though the festive period feels many moons ago now, I hope you don’t mind me sharing the poster I illustrated for the January issue of the lovely Practical Pre-School Magazine! I was commissioned to illustrate an A3 poster for the centre-fold around the title ‘I love shiny things’. I had so much fun working on this playful brief!… Scroll down to see my very first draft… to the final product!
