Mermaid vs Merjim


I drew this little sailor/mermaid combo and then realised that I had accidentally drawn Matt Baynton (of Horrible Histories, The Wrong Mans, Yonderland etc). 
So, naturally, I decided to change the mermaid's face to Jim Howick's; who is also of Horrible Histories and Yonderland fame. (I checked with him first on twitter. He was cool with it.)
Then there was a really bizarre moment where I was googling "Jim Howick in drag" to try and work out his best flirty mermaid face. I love my job.
Here's the result.

Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake (plus noses)


Hello again! Two posts in one week, my goodness. 
For your Saturday viewing pleasure I give you my version of Fionna and Cake (plus friends/enemies). 
I'm completely addicted to Adventure Time (and if you don't know what that is go look it up immediately) and I've been wanting to pay homage for a while.
I could've done the normal non-gender-swapped characters but I was swayed by the fact that I really want to be Fionna. She's awesome.

See you soon!

Pretty Nostalgic Magazine





Hello all!

Here's one of the things I've been working on in the last few months... some images for Pretty Nostalgic magazine!
As some of you may know, I love all things retro, so I jumped at the chance to work with Nic Dorman, illustrating her article on the vintage delights of my home county, Norfolk.

You can buy this issue (and others) at www.prettynostalgic.co.uk


Subscribers (like myself) can also submit content to the magazine by getting in touch with the Pretty Nostalgic team.

See you soon!

Hand doodles


Part of new side project I've got on the go! (And yes, that is my hand I'm drawing on - it's for a good reason!)

I've been feeling pretty terrible with the ME/CFS over the last couple of months, but still working on commissions, so there hasn't been much spare energy for blogging (or anything lol). There'll be some returns on that work fairly soon though, and a slightly calmer period, so hopefully I'll be able to post again soon!

Editorial good times



Hello all! I am doing work, honest! I've got a couple of commissions on at the mo that are sucking up all my time, so it's been a while since I managed to actually post anything. But here's a little sneaky peek at what I've been up to.

Suffragette Scooter Gang

First I saw this...

(“Lady Florence Norman, a suffragette, on her motor-scooter in 1916")


And then I did this...



Because naturally this is how the girls got around. Although I can't decide if the soundtrack is "Sister's are doing it for themselves" or "Born to be Wild".

Dilemma.
