Instagram for Illustrators – How I’m Improving my Feed!

Fun fact: I’ve been on Instagram for 5 years. I started using it just after moving to Cambodia, because it seemed like a kinda neat way to share my travel snaps. I took bad photos and overused filters, because it was 2012 and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Although I’ve been […]

New Portfolio! Fashion, lifestyle and portrait illustration on CarbonMade

I’ve put together  a proper portfolio, using CarbonMade. I really like their sleek interface and design. So pretty, and easy to organise my illustrations into neat little projects. Take a look!

Taking Part in Inktober 2016!

Throughout October, many artists and illustrators aim to draw one image a day using traditional inking tools – markers, pens, bottled ink, etc. Throughout ‘Inktober’ the idea is to produce 31 ink-based drawings over 31 days. A lot of people follow official (or non-official) prompts and themes to get them stared, such as this one […]

Playroom Mural for SongSaa Island: Throwback Thursday!

I’ve written a little bit about getting commissioned to paint a mural while I was living in Cambodia. While that was a great little project, this one is especially memorable to me because I got to stay & work on Songsaa Island. Songsaa (which means ‘sweethearts’ in Khmer) is an amazing little private island near Koh Rong, […]

One thing I miss from living in Asia is the food… delicious, steamy dim sum! So, I figure, why not commemorate that in a gouache illustration with a cheeky hand-lettered slogan? And guess what? Prints are available on my Etsy shop – you can even get 20% off with the code PRECIOUS16 until mid-September! I’m new to hand-lettering […]

Biscuits, Biscuits, Biscuits!

Who doesn’t love a good biscuit? I know I do! So after some extensive biscuit-y research, I painted a lovely biscuit alphabet. Yum. Next step: scan ’em all in, and tweak the text and layout to create a cool alphabet poster! Hopefully that’ll be completed and in my Etsy shop in the very near future! Important question […]

How To Create a Custom Fashion Portrait – My Process!

I have always loved to paint and draw portraits of all kinds, and one of my favourite tasks is turning a photograph into a fashion illustration – so much fun! I thought I’d share a little of my process. I also have a shiny new Etsy shop, so if you think your bedroom or blog could do […]

Painted Fashion Portraits

I’ve been doing a lot of digital work lately, but decided to break my paints out this week and do some quick painted fashion illustrations using gouache and black ink. I started using gouache after having trouble getting hold of watercolours in Vietnam, and actually prefer it to watercolour or acrylic. It gives a nice, […]
