Ibiza - Eivissa 2014



Visiting my friends in Ibiza has become a tradition for the last 10 years. Their kids are full of life and affection and I come back to London every year full of fun memories. There is always amazing music in the background, a new place to be seen, a new fashion to wear. I love the sound of the cicadas, mixing with the electronic music while drinking a cold beer... The intensity of the blue sky.

Hope you are having a great Summer.

Random Sentences...


"She had something now to carry around with her all the time. She was aware of a shine on herself, on her body, on her voice and all her doings."



With every commissioned illustration, there is always a brief/ text/title/ to follow and it's the work of the  illustrator to bring attention and clarity to that text.

Just for fun, I like to match random sentences from novels with an existing illustration from my portfolio. I find it quite liberating that these two elements, which were not created together and do not share the same purpose, are suddenly together trying to make sense of each other.

What you don't see...






For many reasons some illustrations will never see the light of day. They will get stuck in folders as part of a process.
