Lady Bird & Gary Pepper Vintage

Lady Bird is an illustration that forms part of the This Little Piggy exhibition I was in. Below are some illustrations as part of an ongoing collaboration with Gary Pepper Vintage. I have really enjoyed drawing fashion related illustrations and GPV always has hundreds of inspiring photos.
Panda Head above is an ink, pen & pencil illustration - I love the panda head wear! Below is a portrait of GPV founder Nicole Warne. It's a rather flamboyant line drawing, inspired by Lady Gaga.
In other news I will have an illustration in Women's Weekly soon...more details to follow soon. I'm off to eat some home-made mini pancakes topped with maple syrup, washed down with a warm cup of Madura Tea xx

Thanks Victoria...I'm starting to use more colour in my newer works but I still love to use just black and red so to enhance my illustrations I add pattern and detail to make up for the lack of colour....
