Thesis! Ollie's Adventures in England

postcard style.. :)
Ollie rows a boat in beautiful Stratford-Upon-Avon on a sunny day.
On safari in Birmingham, Ollie finds the herbivores a bit too close for comfort.
 Ollie catches some radical waves in Newquay, Cornwall.
Ollie gets a little hungry while fishing in the Lake District. Yum!
The Walrus takes Ollie on the Magical Mystery Tour in Liverpool.

Ollie learns that seagulls in Brighton don't wait for scraps..
Ollie rocks out at a music festival in kent.

 Hay on Wye
--okay, in case you havent heard, my thesis is based on some of my fun travels I had in England. Traveling has been a huge part of my life so I couldnt resist. My experiences are shared through a character I created named, Ollie (hedgehog). These pieces are actually postcards format, with captions on the backside. Once I get my self together, I will be selling them soon! Please feel free to comment in the meantime. Enjoy! Thanks.

animal luff

These are just little quick watercolor paintings of some animals I met last summer. Silly things they are.

character design

This is a character design assignment.
Its about an old man and old cat. They decide to see the world on their penny farthing before they get too old. For the most part, I like it and I used a lot of watercolor techniques, but I think I coulda worked more on the man's arm. They are a bit off..and well, yeah...

watercolours and gauche. Illust 4. 2008


Illustration 3. 2008. watercolors. Children's book spread for the letter B- can you spot them all?
