These are my final entries that I posted to the Tigerprint  feminine photography competition last week. Unfortunately I didn't win (I don't think my images were pink enough perhaps!) and so I thought I would share them with you here. They are running another competition at the moment to call for floral photos. Taking photos of flowers is something I tend to do quite a lot for some reason so I hope I'm in with a better chance for the next one!

Seeing as I think I'll be kind of bored/lonely over the next few months I am also going to be working on some more personal projects and hopefully working on getting some freelance illustration work. Gotta keep entering those competitions though!

Today I was working on a photoshoot for a competition brief based on femininity that I found through twitter. I had a few ideas for different shoots, and these photos are the ones that didn't make the cut (I'll share the ones that did once the competition closes!). The idea behind these was a 1950s retro feminine feel, through the cups and saucers and my mother's newly acquired 1957 Kenwood Chef mixer - oh is she proud of it! I really enjoyed doing this shoot today, I've always enjoyed still life photography and it kind of made me want to join a props department! Enjoy the photos, shall upload more soon.

Here's a bit of fun I have been working on partly to entertain myself and partly to send to the hand drawn typography rally at the Illustration Rally blog. I went ahead and sent it over but now I'm not sure I should have right away, hoping they don't think I am presumptuous! Anyway, I had a bit of time to work on this as I lost out on the job I was hoping to get last week (sad). But, I have found a few competitions and open submissions I can enter so it's looking pretty good. Enjoy the playtime lettering!

So it's been a little busy recently - have been up and down and across the country on trips to Ogmore-by-sea, Falmouth and Brighton so it's been rather quiet on the illustration front. I recently uploaded some old photos from my camera that I forgot about (whoops) so this blog will contain a few of those instead.

British bluebells coating Lanhydrock's grounds

One of my favourite National Trust houses here in the UK is Lanhydrock, a stunning house with a rich history. It's particularly stunning in Spring, as many of its acres are bathed in bluebells at this time, which is what inspired me to take these photos when I was there in April of this year. I highly recommend a visit to this property, especially during the Spring and Summer months.

A short blog this time as I have a few projects lined up, but in the hope of not jinxing them I shall update when I have more certain news.
