although the majority of my work now ends up being a digital product, my heart still secretly lies with the handmade. every illustration i create starts out as a pencil drawing and so during the downtime when i am not creating for clients and want to create for myself, i have in recent months taken up painting to keep my handmade heart happy.
in an unexpected but wonderful little twist, whilst sharing these (and other) personal paintings on instagram, i have since been commissioned by various people to paint custom portraits. i am thrilled at this different path my illustration career is taking. another string to the bow, as my papa would say.
