Adventures in paisley

I've never drawn paisley before but as it's on the list of inspiration/trends that my agent has sent me over to work on I though I'd have a go. I've had a lovely day spent doodling and playing around with design layouts!

Tigerprint Christmas

Well, these were a quick flash of a design tweak! In the process of re-colouring/arranging some designs for a punt in the latest Tigerprint Comp. They're far from perfect but worth a try. Will aim to do a couple more before bedtime and the deadline tomorrow!

Card making frenzy

It's the first day of my summer break from work today and how am I spending it... framing prints and scoring/folding/packaging cards that's how. Fun times... (My camera is seriously on its last legs so apologies for the terrible image quality).
