Christmastime is here.......almost


It's almost time for a few days of Christmas break and I'm really excited about it.  I actually (for once) feel pretty organised about Christmas, (my presents are wrapped already, normally this happens much closer to the date!) and I'm already packing ready for a few days with the family.  I am really looking forward to some lovely country walks and to just slowing down and having a break from all the rushing around of life here.   I have had a busy year and I know a bit of time to relax is just what is needed....for a few days at least ;).
Here's a couple of Christmas food themed illustrations I completed recently.  I tend to make a lot of lovely roasted vegetables all throughout the year and I love simply cooked sprouts with some nice crunchy walnuts.

If you're having a break over the Christmas period I hope you get to enjoy it with family and friends and eat lots of yummy food.  I'll be back very soon :)

All in the eyes


Here's some work I created recently for the January edition of Women's Health magazine out now.  It was great to work with them again.  The article is all about eye types, I'm a hooded eye which can be quite problematic I find when using eye make up, it always ends up on the hooded bit!  This has some helpful tips to avoid this.  I had a lot of drawn, inked and painted eyes all over the place when I was working on these trying to get the colouring as I wanted, and I still find eyes all over the place.  I'm really happy with how they turned out though.

This afternoon I'm back at the desk drawing some more wintery vegetables (yes this is a bit of an obsession of mine).  It's been a snowy day here in London, which for me was pretty exciting as it's the first time since I've lived in this flat that I have seen the lovely garden covered in snow, so pretty!  I did go out in the morning and came back with very wet feet, (trainers and snow are not a good idea!)  Still, now I'm at home all warm and toasty and can appreciate the snow from the inside :), and I did have fun walking in lovely crunchy fresh snow.
Have a great week!
