Book I illustrated for American Girl, a subsidiary of Mattel.

Last year I was asked to illustrate a 95 page book for American Girl...an incredibly exciting project! The book is aimed at young girls and is about school projects, it is on sale now.  

Here are some of my illustrations...hope you like them!

GTS 2016-Design a Teacup and Saucer...

I entered Lilla Rogers GTS again this year...last year I made it to the final 6, but this year was not meant to be and I didn't get through to the semi finals, although I did get an honourable mention, which meant I was one of the 33 who were very close.

I was initially very disappointed, but feeling fine about thing's now. Everything happen's for a reason and I am moving forward full steam ahead :)

Here's my design...hope you like it!
