Here is the finished article...the final flyer for the RIVALS night. I'm rather chuffed with it all, I must say.
The design above it of the whale is for the clothing line Step Up, which is a company who deal with social and ecological issues, with all profits and proceeds going to charities around the world. I'm not going to get into any big political debates on my blog, but I do feel quite strongly about the whale hunting trade, as I mentioned once earlier in my blog with a similar illustration i did. To watch a species dissapear off the planet for cash is a sickening thought. This design will eventually be a tee design...when the company finally gets up and running (fingers crossed it will be soon.
By the way...I don't only draw animals. Although I do draw a lot fo them. Maybe I should post something else next time...? Either way, here's a sketch of a bear, which is different to all the sea creatures I draw, at least. Although he has been soaked by rain.
A cheeky flyer I did for my friend Amandine and her promotions company Rivals! If you happen to be in the Old Street area of London on the 9th October, make sure you get down there, it promises to be awesome! The link to their myspace is thus:
Ah, I'm here, I'm here! Ooops, bit of a delay in posting, but I have been immensley busy trying to get back into the swing of being an illustrator!
Whenever I'm cruising round blogs or artists' sites, I often find the most interesting and inspiring stuff are sketches...the artists imagination and thoughts put down on paper, no strings attached. So I thought I'd try and upload a few more sketchbook pages from now on...my sketchbooks are extremely messy and don't follow any particular pattern or order (infact, there's about another sketchbooks worth of loose paper sketches which I have to shove in the back of the book itself...), but I hope you'll enjoy it! The above are sketches for the Wolf idea I've been working so relentlessly over.
And in other news, I am thrilled to say I have just signed up with Jodie Marsh at United Agents for representation in all things children's books! Hurrah! The link is right over here:
I am a London based illustrator, and really like to draw. Which is pretty lucky, i guess, considering my occupation. I won a High Commendation in the Macmillan Children's Book Prize in 2008, and am currently delving into the fantastic world of children's books. If you like my work and are maybe interested to see more, please check out my site! I also like mornings (weird), coffee, all types of animal and coffee. Oh, and coffee. All my children's book illustration is represented by Jodie Hodges at United Agents. All images are copyright Jamie Littler.
