I just received Issue #40 of Uppercase Magazine in the mail and am happy to see my submission for the cover contest was included on page 37! Have a look at this wonderful magazine (one of my favourites) and all the wonderful submissions. Thanks to Janine Vangool for including it!
Oh and BTW: due to many inquiries, I decided to turn this cover illustration into a really fun repeat pattern which you can now purchase on all kinds of fun products, including totes, t-shirts, furniture and more. Check it out in my Society 6 shop!
Just thought I would share the 2 illustrations I submitted for the recent cover contest for one of my favourite magaazines, Uppercase Magazine! They didn't win the cover spot, but I was notified that one of my illustrations was chosen to be included in Issue 40 coming out in mid-December! At this point though I'm not sure which of my 2 submissions was chosen!
The first theme was to celebrate the magazines 10th Anniversary in 2019 so my pairs of hands on which you can count to 10 are raised in celebration! Another of the requested themes was "maturity and longevity" so the botanical illustration depicts a plant as it grows through various life phases from seed to a variety of flowering blooms (kinda like how we all end up wearing many hats in our day-to-day lives, perhaps?)
Tell me which of the 2 you prefer...I know which one I like best!

How fun is this? My "Friendly Bear" sock design won an "honourable mention" in the Corgi Sock Design Competition! Corgi is a UK company established in 1892 that supplies luxury socks to the Royal Family! Check out the announcement of the winners on the Corgi Socks Blog!
This is a new festive holiday card design that I designed to submit to the MATS Holiday Card Competition! The brief was to design an illustration of our favourite festive winter beverage...champagne and spices and fruit!
This week we were tasked with coming up with a positive message for girl's apparel. Here is my "Make A Difference" design on apparel! Hope you like it!
I've been working my way through MATS A and the last assignment is to create a design for a zipper pouch based on something we collect. So, inspired by this Japanese tea set (from my collection of "Funny Things That I Like"), I created this bold and bright "Funny Faces" design. Would love to see this as a repeat pattern as well! Let me know what you think!
