Just a quick warm up for this Friday morning. I'm trying to strip things back a bit for these warm up exercises and not get too sucked into making them bigger pieces.

Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates this month. Work has really picked up pace and although you'll never catch me complaining, it does mean I have had much less time to get some personal pieces done!
Unless you live on Mars (and let's be honest, you'd probably still have heard!) you will know that on the 22nd July Kate Middleton gave birth to her and Prince William's first Son, and our future King. The atmosphere in London has really been one of joy and excitement over the last few days. aside from anything else it really is lovely to just have a bit of good news on the TV and in the newspapers.
This is just a quick warm up painting to get back into the swing of things after a few days of in studio work.

It's taken quite a few months but it seems Summer has finally arrived in London. This was just a quick warm up (getit?!) doodle to get back into the swing of the week.

Unfortunately, a few weekends ago, after nearly three wonderful years together my beloved iPhone4 was stolen while I was in a bar in London :( Massive sad/frustrating/angry emotions gave way to the realisation that I needed a new phone. Off I went to my first ever trip to the Apple store where i walked out with a shiny new iPhone5 (that I will now be guarding with my life). I'm one of those people that won't take my phone out of the house without a bullet proof case and a perfectly positioned screen protector. Hence, my iPhone4 was in beautifully mint condition after nearly three years *cry*
The long and short of this anecdote was that I decided to illustrate a design that could be printed as my iPhone case. I wanted to make something that makes me smile, as i'll be looking at it a lot - as my phone's always on me. I also wanted to play on the longer, thinner shape of the iPhone5. All this culminated in Summit Plummet. If you have no idea what this is have a read here: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/parks/blizzard-beach/attractions/summit-plummet/
It's not spot on the reference as I wanted to adapt it for my purpose. It's also a more graphical style than I usually go for but I thought it'd work best :)
Here's some photos on it on my phone!
