New blog!

Happy Saturday!



If you've been following my blogs the last few posts, you'll know I've set up my blog on my website now so I'm sort of phasing this one out.  It just makes sense to have all my blog content and portfolio in the same place :) I'm going to continue posting on this one for a couple weeks just to give everyone a change to find my new blog :)

Please change your bookmarks/feeds etc to


Thanks! And I'll see ya over there :)

Daily Inspiration

One of my favourite new websites at the moment, is Pinterest.

I just love collecting images I find on my daily travels and now I have a nice little place to compile them neatly into categories. It’s like an ever evolving moodboard.  These are a few of my most recent finds – such talented illustration and lovely photography


Endless fun to be had.

PS - Don't forget my blog is now hosted over at http://www.itslikeart.net/blog so remember to change your feeds/bookmarks etc. and follow me over there - thanks!

Pick Me Up

Myself and fellow crayonette Rachel Lewis went along to the Pick Me Up graphic art fair at Somerset House over the weekend. We met up with  lovely illustrators Jo CheungEmma Cowley, June Chanpoomidole and Emma Block to had a little look around! An ideal sunday day out.

The place is packed full of illustration,  design, typography, collectives, books, prints and inspiring creative types.   The exhibition is on until the 27th March, so if you're in or around London and get a chance, I definitely recommend popping in.


(Nicely designed flyer too).

I love a nice bit of typography, and there was alot on offer at the exhibition, one of my favourite illustrators Kate Moross made an appearance with her colourful prints.


There's alot of letterpress artwork and screen prints on display. It's nice to see the more traditional hand crafted methods of printing are still around, I must get back in to screen printing this year.

I took a picture of the letter R.


It was alot of fun, I think I need to go back and go round again, there's so much to take in.

Alliterati Magazine

Local Newcastle based creative writing magazine Alliterati featured my little bird alongside one of their new poems from their latest issue.

"Excuse Me While I Put You On This Pedestal" by William Sebag-Montefiore




Although this isn't a new illustration, it suited the writing - and coincidentally, was created from another piece of prose, so it all ties together quite nicely :)

Read the article here

I mentioned earlier that I've been working on installing wordpress into my main website so I can blog from my domain, and its nearly there or thereabouts, so I think what I'll do is, keep this blog running alongside the new blog just for a little while, so all my lovely followers can change their bookmarks and feeds etc.  so please head over to http://www.itslikeart.net/blog

And, I'll see ya there! x

Compound Magazine

Happy sunday everyone!

Myself and lovely tea & crayons girls Rachel L and Abby have been featured in the very cool new Compound Magazine.   The mag isn't out for general release just yet, but you can have a little looksee at the download here.

The theme set for the issue was 'Chemistry' and related to a chosen song.  I love that everyone interprets theme's so differently, it's quite an eclectic mix of visuals (well worth having a browse).

My song was Friend of the Night by Mogwai.


A lonesome wolf.


In other news, I'm working on installing wordpress into my website so I can blog from my domain, so I'll let you all know when it's up and running so you can change your bookmarks and RSS feeds. :)

Illustration Rally - Monaco

Illustration rally's current on-going project is illustrating all the European countries and I got Monaco! I didn't know much about Monaco before I started this I thought it was just all about the formula 1 racing (which, I know nothing about) but it actually is quite an interesting country, very wealthy, historic and cosmopolitan.
