Soie Rouge

I'm now open to design/illustration commissions, so if you want a custom header for your blog, a background, logo or personalised hand-drawn illustration, then drop me an email at

I thought I'd upload one of my favourite illustrations to show that I don't just draw floating heads. An entirely hand-rendered piece with only some minor Photoshop tweaking at the end. As much as I adore digital art, you can't always achieve the same mark-making and raw quality. If you're a graphic artist or watercolour painter, I highly recommend Dr. Ph Martin concentrated inks for the most intense, vivid pigments. At £5 a pop they're certainly not cheap but the colour and finish is phenomenal and great for reproduction.

This is a visualisation of a jumpsuit for a hand-printed chiffon sample when I was at uni. I drew her mid-air to demonstrate the loose, airy qualities in drape and movement of silk.

French Chic in London

fashion illustration, hermes scarf, silk scarf, beehive hair, french chic
NOTE the Hermes scarf!

Here is an illustration of my friend, Kate (aka frenchchicinlondon), for her birthday which she'll be putting up on her blog and using as her logo.

I think she must like it as she's made it her DP on Facebook. Score.

I'll be doing new illustrations weekly, so keep checking back.

Which particular style icons would you like to see me draw next? I'm thinking of doing a sixties series.
