My husband’s mate Graham is best man at his friend Martin’s wedding. For Martin’s bachelor’s party, Graham wanted to print T-Shirts with a caricature of the groom. He asked me if I know anything about caricature drawing and if I would do it. Spoiler: I know NOTHING about caricatures. It never interested me as an art form. Yet I promised, I’d give it a try anyway.

I haven’t had a lot of time to work on this further but every once in a while I find a few minutes to make another illustration. Here is a quick preview of some characters for the kids book I am working on. Still raw and plain, texture, positioning and type not added yet. It’s going to be fun once I am ready to get into the details. Read more →
Another update on the commercial portfolio site: a logo development for Malin Dimech’s new business “Siblings”. I love working for start-ups, the energy and passion that goes into setting up a business is infectious. It makes me happy to be part of that initial spark. Head straight to the portfolio section: Siblings or simply jump to read on. Read more →
