Back to school

These last five weeks I have been taking part in the Make Art That Sells course by the illustration agent Lilla Rogers. This is quite an intense course and I have really learned so much!

Here are the outcomes of my three favourite assignments:

During week 3 we looked at children's book illustration and had to illustrate the cover or internal pages for The Three Billy Goats Gruff. I had so much fun painting goats!

Week 4 covered wall art and we were assigned colours - I was given yellow and pink - not what I would usually go for but I surprised myself and I think I might use brighter colours more often now.

For the final week we had to design a "hyper-lush" zipper pouch based on a personal collection. Not really collecting much myself I went for a botanic garden theme - I'd have my own Victorian greenhouse filled with exotic plants if I could.
