Finally a new piece of work to share! Over the last few weeks I've been working on a commission for a local author, Vivien Carmichael, on an illustration of a unicorn to coincide with the upcoming launch of her new book, 'The Grail of the Unicorn Planet'.
I really enjoyed working on this illustration; drawing the unicorn was something I wouldn't normally have tackled in my own personal work, but it was really interesting to break out of my comfort zone a bit. We even went on a mini research trip to look at some local horses so I could get a good feel for the anatomy (and have a quick nose/muzzle pat!)
The book launch is on the 19th May at Le Lion D'or in Hove from 3.30pm, so if you're in the South then head on down there for some readings and book related fun. There'll also be the opportunity to buy some limited edition prints and pocket mirrors featuring my illustration.
