Red Dish

Happy Easter everyone, here's one of my egg paintings from the Hot X Buns exhibition. 


I had a wee job for a friend to do an image of a female explorer with a giant magnifying glass. As I always really like getting an inside view into other peoples process I thought I'd include my process sketches too.

I was lucky enough to be asked to put some work in this upcoming exhibition, I'll be alongside a bunch of super talented ladies. The exhibition is only up for a few days but there are events on the Friday (the opening) and Sunday (closing) and we have lots of great sponsors for all the major food groups; beer, gin, coffee, hot chocolate and, of course hot cross buns.
As we are all illustrators there will also be prints/cards/postcards for sale so even if you don't want to shell out the big bucks you'll be able to afford something.
