New 'Single Mum' Illustration.

My second 'Single Mum' illustration for Reform magazine. The brief was quite challenging this month as I had to convey a young woman, alone, with her new born baby, feeling anxious about how on earth she might cope but with the comforting thought that God was with her. Despite being slightly tricky to depict, I was really pleased with the results and hope Lucy (the subject/writer of the piece) is too when she see's it! Here is the picture on it's own and within the spread.

Women's Weekly

Here's a little job I did recently for Women's Weekly. The story was based on a housewife's memories of a holiday in Mexico.

Harriet Russell online shop!

These bike owl t-shirts are one of the first products to be available in my brand new online shop! They are limited edition, screenprint on organic cotton tees, available in a variety of sizes. The shop is pretty small at the moment (I only have four products so far...) but there will be more coming soon, and I will be selling a variety of books, prints, cards, t-shirts and more! Go to Harriet Russell's shop to have a look.

Map of Italy

I have been working on an illustrated map of Italy for a few weeks now on and off and finally found the time to finish it yesterday. I came to the conclusion that I really should have a map in my portfolio so I set myself the challenge and am really pleased with the results. It took a while but it was worth all the effort!
