Carmilla





Before Dracula, before Buffy and True Blood and sparkly Robert Pattinson there was Carmilla. It's a great piece of Gothic Fiction, I happen to share a name with the narrator, which always helps.

At it's core it's a tale concerning the sort of obsessive friendships that girls often form....except with neck wounds...and mysterious deaths....and strong lesbian undertones.

Anyway, for the month that's in it here's a Carmilla inspired illustration!

Rush Hour









The scan doesn't really pick up the vibrancy of this but it's BRIGHT. It frustrates me no end that something always gets lost in digitising the image, if you have any tips for scanning watercolor let me know!

Zizzi Wine Menu



















I recently had the pleasure of working on Zizzi's new wine menu, art directed by the talented Tobias Hall who also created the hand drawn type. The idea was to personify the four categories of wine available; White, Rosé, Red and Bubbly as well as including a portrait of Guillaume Aubert, Zizzi's wine expert.

 I gave each a personality and an outfit to match the characteristics of their wine-

Mr. White is cool, crisp and sharp
Ms. Rosé is sweet, floral, the ingénue
Mr. Red is warm and smooth
Ms. Bubbly is effervescent, fun and glamorous

It was a lot of fun to work on!
