Thank you so much for all the likes and lovely comments this year! I’m very happy to see so many of my illustrations in my best nine, as it was one of my New Years resolutions to post more art this year. 2018 has been a great year for me, I got my first commissioned illustration, became a Cass Art Student ambassador, had my work published over the summer, took part in @hifestuk and completed my first year of university. I’m very excited for what 2019 will bring. I hope you all have a Happy New Year and a brilliant 2019! . . . #bestnine2018 #2018bestnine #bestnine #topnine #2018 #greatyear #newyearseve #happynewyear #happynewyear2018 #illustrator #illustration #illustrationstudent #watercolour #painting #art #artstudent

Recently I have been loving paper cutting and collaging, experimenting with brighter colours than I would normally use. It’s been really lovely to get back into collage, as it’s something I haven’t done for ages. . This collage is based on a photograph I took with a 28mm lens at Brighton Station (scroll for second photo) using a roll of 35mm Black & white film which I developed myself in the darkroom at uni. . . . #collage #illustration #illustrator #illustrationstudent #artstudent #trainstation #train #papercollage #sketchbook #seawhitesketchbook #collaging #collageart #papercutting #paper #filmphotography #35mmfilm #blackandwhitephotography

I had a fantastic time at HiFest this weekend selling my greetings card designs and pin badges on my Universities stall. I’m honoured to have had the opportunity to participate in the last ever HiFest. I loved taking part! Thank you so much to everyone who came and shopped at our stall! @hifestuk #HiFest #hifest2018 #HiFestUK #illustration #illustrator #illustrators #illustrationfair #illustrationfestival #Hastings #theprintworkshastings #HastingsIllustrationFestival #illustrationstudent #artstudent #universitystudent #illustrator #fun #EastSussex #UK

My dad took this photo of me at the Turner Contemporary in Margate. I really enjoyed visiting the gallery. 📷: @djlfinlay #dslrphotography #dslr #Kent #artgallery #installationart #installation #gallery #turnercontemporary #Margate #dayout #daytrip #travel #exploring #holiday #Autumn #October #seaside #seasidetown

A little Heathers themed sketch I made using Promarkers and Staedler fineliners. My mum and I went to see the show yesterday and our tickets got upgraded to the Royal Circle! The matinee show was incredible. It was such a fun experience, the cast are fantastic! . . . #Heathers #HeatherChandler #JodieSteele #Heathersthemusical #HeathersUK #LondonCast #bigfun #TheatreRoyalHaymarket #Haymarket #Heathersfanart #HeatherChandlerfanart #VeronicaSawyer #VeronicaSawyerfanart #CarrieHopeFletcher #fanart #fanartfriday #WestEnd #musicaltheatre #London #dayout #illustration #illustrator #illustrationstudent #artstudent #CassArt #promarkers #staedlerpens #drawing #sketch #characterillustration
