Just a quick post to share these new images! I assume most of you know about that little phenomenon Harry Potter that has taken over the world this past week. In the spirit of creating some new illuminated letters I decided to create some Harry Potter themed images, each letter representing the Hogwarts house - each letter includes the house animal, colours and the associated item. Hope you enjoy!

So I managed to get some more of my illuminated letters of Fairytales done this weekend, and I focused on Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood. I thought I would present them in a slightly different way, so here they are - hope you like them. I think Rapunzel is my favourite, due to the big sun behind her! I will be working on the Harry Potter themed ones soon, as this week is looking rather busy! Hoping to update my website some time in the future as well if I can sort out my hosting.

So I have a few things to share today! Firstly, on Wednesday I went to the amazing New Designers show in Angel, London. My work was (and still is until tomorrow night) on show at the University College Falmouth stands (VC9+10) among some of the best new graduate work in the UK. It was a fantastic experience to meet other new graduates and interesting people in the industry, in particular illustrators who have been working already for a year and have become successful. The show is open until the end of tomorrow so if you are in Angel you should definitely go and have a look!
At the show I also spoke to the person behind the unique website ArtsThread, a place for new graduates to put up a small selection of their portfolio in order to connect with commissioning business and people in the industry. It was a great chat and the site is a fantastic opportunity, you can view my ArtsThread portfolio here.
The image above is something I prepared for the ArtsThread portfolio to showcase my typographic skills, something which I will be posting about again soon hopefully! I've nearly finished sorting my life out back home now, so I will definitely be getting some new work on the blog. I may also be embarking on the Tigerprints Gifted competition which launched at New Designers this week - keep your eye out!

So welcome to my 100th blog post, how exciting. I moved back to the midlands on Thursday and it's been a seriously hectic few days. Just posting to show a few chalkboard menus I designed for some events we recently had at home, firstly for a French themed party and secondly for a meal at my mum's self initiated ladies' club, Fluff.
