Dan's Birthday Cake

Lately, I love settling down for my lunch break with an episode of 'Cake Boss', Buddy is my new hero. Cakes have become a bit of a hobby for me recently. They're such good fun (and hard work!), it's always nice to share the results with friends and family and it keeps me away from the PC screen for a good chunk of hours.

So this is a birthday cake I created containing the eclectic collection of, my boyfriend, Dan's favourite critters! The cake is vanilla sponge with chocolate buttercream (and crushed up Crunchies mixed in) covered with vanilla frosting and fondant. Fondant animals and chocolate Rice Krispie trees mean everything on this cake is edible. Luckily he loved it, bonus: It tasted amazing!

Tiki Match 3 Game

This was part of an art test for a social games company gig that unfortunately fell through. My aim for this was to produce a 'match 3' game board, background and six unique icons for a game that has mass market appeal for all ages and that isn't gender specific. I'm really quite happy with the results. Please excuse the large watermarks but I really don't want this to be taken and reused elsewhere.

Simba and Mufasa

When I was little, pretty much all I would draw would be terrible reproductions of these guys. In my opinion it's still the best film ever and I decided to revisit my favourite cinematic father and son combo, briefly, seeing as though it was Father's Day yesterday.

Ellie's Race for Life

A little something for my younger sister, Ellie. She completed the Cancer Research UK 'Race for Life' 5k in memory of our Dad, on Father's Day. He past away six years ago when I was 18 and she 14.
