Cincinnati Gives / Raising Generous Kids

I love doing editorial illustrations, and I think this is one of the sweetest ones I got to draw so far! Cincinnati Gives is an annual magazine produced by Cincinnati magazine and the article is about getting children involved in helping with charity work. Here's a peek into my process: As you can see, I initially submitted two different pencil sketches for the art director to choose from. Then I inked the illustration on paper, scanned it and coloured it digitally. (The last image is a screenshot from the article on the Cincinnati Magazine website , you can read it here!). Cincinnati Gives  is out now.

Shop / Spies Print

I've added a new print called Spies  to my Etsy Shop, just in time for Christmas Shopping! This is an updated illustration of a screenprint I made back at university. A lovely lady called Alison saw this print in a cafe in Edinburgh and asked if I had any more available since it reminded her of her daughter. Since the screenprints were made back in 2005 they're long gone, but it inspired me to make an updated version and turn it into a giclee print. It was so strange and interesting to return to work I made a long time ago and so nice to 'fix' some things and make them better. Do you ever re-visit older work of yours?
