It's Christmas!

Hello, and Merry Christmas!  It's been a while since my last post i realise.  I've been doing lots of Christmassy themed pieces over the last couple of months.  So to begin here's an illustration that is now featured in Amelia's magazine.  The theme was Christmas music and i choose to illustrate a cover version of the great Wonderful Christmastime (its such a classic Christmas tune) by Dog is Dead.  I loved the video and I wanted the illustration to be subtley humorous.  Along with the traditional Christmas things (crackers, reindeer, the delightful Christmas jumper! and so on) I wanted it to be quite decorative and I was obsessed with the sprouts being an integral part of Christmas and having a good bop around.  Who doesn't love a sprout at Christmas after all!?!

Wonderful Christmastime

The image below I've used for Christmas cards and is also featured in the Yoillo Advent Calendar.  Give the calendar a look, it has wonderful illustrations from some very talented lovely folk.

Christmas Stag

Here's a couple more pieces I did just based on a Christmas theme just because i wanted to really.


This little chap I made while I was on a trip home and he is happily sitting in his new place on the tree waiting patiently for Christmas day!

It's going to be strange not drawing snowflakes, stars and the like for a while now!  Happy Christmas!
