Old Navy Toddler Girls

This is the second line-up I designed for Old Navy, with the same concept of 'Hoods in the Woods' in mind!

Old Navy Toddler Boys

Part of my internship at Old Navy has involved designing a Family Message as part of a group project! This is one of the line-ups I produced towards our concept of 'Hoods in the Woods'.

You wouldn't get away with this in San Francisco Fog.

It's safe to say we've experienced the true wrath of San Francisco's very un-Californian climate. August is not skimpy T-shirt and underwear weather!

My First Adobe Illustrator Graphic!

Throughout my job as an illustrator, I've been in many fortunate positions where I send over the hand-drawn illustration and it's done! While I've been working for Old Navy, I've been learning how to produce graphics for production... which involves a hell of a lot more time staring at a screen! After having someone in my team patiently teaching me the zillion and one "⌘" shortcuts on a Mac, I produced my first illustration completely coloured on Adobe Illustrator! Can you see the blood and sweat gone into this? Probably not...

Santa Cruz

A couple of weeks ago the girls and I took a trip to Santa Cruz to get some real California sun!! Admittedly a lot of time was spent on public transport, but luckily because we're in a new country even that was fun (Double-Decker trains, ?!!?!) the journey was memorable, and we met some colourful characters who thankfully didn't come back to SF with us... even after contemplating whether to follow us home or not. This is an illustration I did when we were on the long bus haul through San Jose traffic. All I had for entertainment was my pen, paper, and a massive bag of sunflower seeds... (which turns out you can't eat without getting splinters in your tongue, I did eat them anyway)

Hobo Studies

Last Saturday was a bit of a low start... we had full intention on spending the day in Haight-Ashbury, but the Friday night had defeated us. Instead, we collapsed on a small patch of grass in Union Square outside Macy's. What a cop out. While Bethany managed to nap through the pungent smell of a hobo next to us, I decided to draw him in his rugged attire. We all agreed that considering looking cool was probably not a hobo's priority, this one managed to pull it off. The only fault was his finger nails, but I guess things like that can't be helped.

American Fashion Part 3

Are We Addicted to Maccy D's??

Every Saturday after the night before (and now a few days in between) we find ourselves in the same food spot... there's a table under the Golden Arches with our names written on it. Of all the fantastic places we could go and eat and San Francisco, we're sucked in before we even reach 3rd Street. The reason being we're all HOOKED!!! Get me my choc milkshake & fries now.

Evening Standard Feature August 3rd

A few months ago I did a series of postcards for a pop-up shop in Kingston, London. I wasn't expecting it to appear in the Evening Standard (!?)... anyway, I've highlighted my name in a bright, garish pink for all to see! As I'm currently out of London, (in San Francisco) I managed to find the article online. Thanks to Peter Ford, Elinor Renfrew and Peter Christian of Kingston University who got me involved with the project.

All American Woman

She's been printed huge because let's face it, everything in America is!

American Fashion Part 1

I've started to notice a small hole in my life since I've been in the States. It's the absence of buying any fashion magazines!! I'm putting this partly down to being preoccupied with working, exploring my new surroundings.. but mostly sheer laziness. Luckily, my house-mate Emma kitted herself with American Vogue and Elle for our weekend on the beach in Santa Cruz. The other night I hijacked them so I could so some drawings from my favourite fashion stories. This is the first in my American Fashion inspired illustrations!
