Late Valentines


This was an image I produced for the February edition of the Pickled ink newsletter. For each month there's often some sort of theme, thus Valentines Day fell into this one. I didn't want to go for the whole 'tacky, lovey dovey' thing so I created something a little more tasteful. I particularly enjoyed using rich colours and texture to convey a warm dream-like feeling with a hint of Art-nouveau style. Hope you like it!
Also, I haven't had much time to update my blog recently since I'm working on two children's book commissions, and any work I produce has to be kept hush hush until they're published grrrr...just so you know i'm not slacking my lovely people! It's a top secret mission y'know :)

  1. This really is too good. The watercolour texture, the drawing itself AND the Art Nouveau-feel...it adds such a nice design element to it. So, so good!

  2. I really like this Lil :-)
    I love Art Nouveau anyway and I love the modern illustration take on the style :-)
