Good Wives and Warriors

I recently re-discovered the wonderful illustrations and paintings of art graduate duo, Good Wives and Warriors.  I love the incredible detail and intricacy of their work, check out more of it on their site.

Wedding Invitations & Favours!

I'm getting married to Noel on June 23rd this year (aah!).  It's getting close & i'm quite excited and nervous!

We sent out our invites just last week, my good friend Will Sliney did the majorly cute illustration as a wedding present, they took AGES to make but i'm happy I did it! I've included a few pictures here.

I'm also making wedding favours with my awesome badge machine, based on Will's graphic (pic above).

Exciting times!

Printmaking Pt.2

More printmaking! The top two here are aquatints, great fun! They're from the same plate, you can work into the plate and then work back out using a variety of techniques. They're based on a photo I took in India.

I've also included a photo intaglio print, also based on an India photo, i'm getting great mileage out of that trip!

Tuesday, May 8, 2012 pt2 is live!

Wohoo! The brand spanking new site just went live! It's the second incarnation of the site i've developed, you can check out the first one here from way back in 2008!  It was definitely time for an update!

I'm really happy with the new site, I think it really showcases Jill's work through the use of the large background images, the "spotlight" image on each page and the gallery.  I'm also really excited to see what Jill does with the site, she's already a whizz with her Facebook and has just joined Twitter so i'm sure she's going to post all sorts of interesting stuff!
