not forgotten

Hmm - I feel like I need to say my blog is 'not forgotten' as I haven't posted anything for zonks, but well I've just been busy drawing pictures!

These are some pictures I am very proud of.
The project very nearly didn't happen, and was probably about a year in the making with lots of ups and downs, which makes me even more proud of it and in particular Soph - whose baby it is!
Here we go drum roll please...

Not forgotten
by Sophie Lewis illustrated by me

Currently there are only a handful of english copies, as the project is being launched in maternity wards across Paris  "N'oublie pas" (and soon to be going to Brasil- I believe!) because of this- below I have put each spread, so you can scroll through and pretend you are reading an actual book! Click on them - to see them BIG.

Are you sitting comfortably?
Then I'll begin...

The book is part of a bigger project called the 10th month, with lovely videos and resouces for new mummies.
Have a look.

46 square metres of artwork!

What a poor neglected blog!…anyway here's some BIG work I have been doing recently for an exciting project with Willis & Newson. A new dementia unit is being build in Hertford. Its a place where newly diagnosed patients go for 40 days to be monitored and assessed. Its both a medical & residential space so art plays a big part of it. I have been commissioned to produce 46 square metres of artwork that covers the corridors to help orientate patients as well as give them visual reflexions.

  • The market scene is full of busy details, buildings are a mixture of generic & real bits of iconic  architecture in Hertford.
  • The canal scene is supposed to be more reflective & with a calmer feel but still lots to engage a viewer.
  • The trees are designed for patients to be able to decorate through-out the year, attaching leaves & blossom and other seasonal decorations
  • The building details are decals which will be dotted around the whole centre.
Its all in production at the moment being turned into GIANT digital wallpaper…look forward to seeing the real thing soon.

As an illustrator, the majority of my work is commissioned, but I've done quite a lot of 'private commissions' this year, so work for just lovely people who want it rather than it being for some commercial or corporate use. These a few of the jobs…

4 teas 
a lovely piece to illustrate the 4 cups of tea that the client was bought by her husband to celebrate her 40th Birthday- her forties..her 4teas - get it? Very clever...

this is a picture the client sent me of the pictures all framed and hung in their home- hurrah!

A special A-Z of Bristol
I was asked by a couple to customise my A-Z of Bristol to add a new image for J.
It was a present for their friend who's family business is 100 years old this year…

Lastly, a slightly different kind of thing, but after doing a drawing of me, Felix & Ursula as our Happy New Year card this year, a few friends got in touch asking if I could do family portraits for them too- here are 2…
