Introducing the new Olive Owl collection for Trend Lab.

Very early on in 2016 I had the luck of connecting with Trend Lab, a gorgeous online manufacturer and retailer of baby bedding and nursery decor.  It was great to find that they were interested in one of my collections I had done the previous year and so a deal was made.

Roll on a year and a half later and those designs are now a whole range of baby bedding and nursery decor including a quilt and bedding set, a clock, a shelf and a storage caddy and it’s all very cute!

When you work the way I do designing flat illustrations and pattern designs, it’s often hard to imagine anything other than what they are already. Seeing my designs become a 3Dimensional reality for the first time has blown me away. It’s amazing what they have created with so little and I just love that my little Olive Owl will be gracing baby bedrooms in the US for a good long while, I hope. The collection is called Olive Owl and can be brought HERE.

This project is a great example of what a designer and manufacturer can achieve. If you manufacture gift and home ware or stationery, please get in touch with me today. I love sharing my current collections and also enjoy working to commission to create bespoke designs just for you.

Here is my second instalment of sharing my sketchbook spreads. This week, I took inspiration from the page of teacups I did as part of the Creative Bug Daily Drawing Challenge. The designs were screaming greeting card designs, which I did in one day. The next day I had sold half of the collection.

It goes to show that drawing leads to ideas, which then leads to opportunities and it’s made me feel positive about my work in this new year.

Here are a few pages for you to enjoy this week:

I have recently been working on a personal project illustrating Greek God’s. For the first time I am working in a greyscale which I find so appealing lately, and I wanted to share some details of what I have done so far.

I am currently working on my very first animal alphabet, which I hope to turn into a HUUUGE poster next year, as well as a series of new greetings cards. My first is the anteater, which has been sitting in an old sketchbook for a good long while. It’s nice to have finally done something with it. I will try and update you as the alphabet progresses, but for now, enjoy this little guy.
