Open Day Illustrations

These past couple of weeks have been so ridiculously busy. I've had a Birthday, two new people move into the flat and have been working non-stop, including a 5am start yesterday (waking up before 10am on a Sunday is wrong!). Luckily, this week I have a few days off and am looking forward to chilling with friends, seeing my family, catching up with reading, making the flat look pretty and sleeping sleeping sleeping.

Every year my work holds an Open Day. This year I was asked to do some illustrations for a children's competition. To encourage them to explore different parts of the campus (which is massive) and take part in the activities, they were asked to find the different characters. These illustrations are quite a departure from what I'm used to doing, usually I'm a stickler for detail, but they needed to be simple and friendly. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out, and we had a load of entries so I guessing the children liked them too!

Back to the 90's

Busy busy week! I took last week off work and it was absolutely gorgeous. I saw my friend's new flat, went up to Brighton for a few days, hung out in the sun, discovered new local places and held an early Birthday party - 90's style!! This is only a tiny selection of the ridiculous amount of photos taken, but I'm so pleased with how it turned out and the amazing effort everyone made with their costumes. I wish I could have captured them all. Thanks guys!!
