Wishing all of you a very Happy New Year!

I had the joy recently of collaborating with fantastic illustrator/animator Gary Mayes. Whilst preparing for a job we realised that we had a little time and it would be beneficial for us to do a little ‘test’, what better way than to wish you all a ‘Happy New Year’ ?!

I drew approx. 150 frames which then Gary took away and worked his magic.

I hope you enjoy our little ‘film’ and look forward to showing you more collaborations soon

Best wishes for 2019

Melanie Sykes interview

Met the gorgeous Melanie Sykes yesterday. She popped down to my studio to get her portrait done and interview me for her website (coming soon). She has a section where she interviews celebs, entrepreneurs , sports personalities etc so I felt honoured to be asked! We had a lovely frank conversation over lunch and got on like a house on fire- what a lovely down-to-earth woman. Watch this space for the upcoming interview....

'LA's Hottest Ticket'- Variety Magazine & Women in Film and Television's celebration @ Gracias Madre

Painting @40 guests as speedily as possible last friday night in LA was my most pressured job to date! Working with LA illustrator Sunny Gu, who was also drawing like crazy. Our mission from Rue La La, sponsors of the event was to "paint each guests in 2 minutes"- we did assure the client that was impossible but we would do our best!!!

It was packed with guests from U.S tv shows such as Ariel Winter (Modern Family) Jamie King (Sin City) Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black), and many many others!
