Crowned Crane

A stern but wise grey, crowned crane. She's not one to be messed with.I used to draw animals all the time but lately I've found myself immersed with human designs, must get back into the animal kingdom soon!

Engagement Illustration

It seems i'm getting to that age in life where everyone around me is getting engaged and married. Wedding season is upon us for another year and I couldn't be happier for a bunch of my friends who are saying the big 'I do'! With all the blossoming or soon to be marital bliss, I find myself doing more wedding work - engagement presents, save the dates and invitations are becoming a more common occurrence in my work life and I love it. Being part of someone's big day, in whatever way, is always a big privilege.

This piece was done for a friend of mine back in Spain. She approached me to illustrate characters of her Sister and new fiancé celebrating their engagement. Above is the resulting illustration and the lovely bride-to-be with the framed print and gift. She was so happy with it I was later asked to adapt it to be used as save-the-dates :)
