Mega chuffed that my new #picturebook ‘Fidget the Wonder Dog’ will finally be published (after COVID delays 💔) THIS Thursday (7th Jan). All courtesy of the hugely talented author @PatriciaForde1 and the fine folk at @PuffinBooks . Hooray 🌟
Throwback to earlier this year when I redesigned an old illustration, that I first created in my final year at University - over SIX years ago now! It was amazing to see how much my style has evolved since then. There is still more I’d like to improve on, while trying to flourish and grow as an artist 🌱
Throw back to 2017 when I designed the @tescofood pet advent calendars. This was a dream project for me and also very close to my heart, as I have fond memories of working for the supermarket during my time at college and university.
