The other day I was so happy to hear that my work was getting mentioned on the Tigerprint blog. 
Tigerprint are a great company who supply exclusive cards and wrapping to Marks and Spencer
They hold regular competitions on their blog and I was lucky enough to come runner up in the first one I entered. 
I got a LOVELY goody bag and they wrote a blog post all about my work, which was so lovely. 

I am entering another one of their competitions so fingers crossed they like that design as much as the last....or more!

Anyway, go check the blog post out and have a look at their stuff.

All Tropical, Ghosts of Gone Birds Competiton

A few days ago I entered a design for the Ghosts of gone birds t-shirt design competition for All Tropical.
The idea of the competition is to raise awareness for extinct birds, many of which have been gone for hundreds of years, so not too many people are even aware that they existed. It is so sad when you look at the list of extinct birds and see just how many beautiful species we are missing out on seeing.

Anyway, I chose to illustrate the Laughing Owl. Named as such because of its peculiar call. It seemed like a mischievous creature and that's the main reason why I chose it over many of the other birds which were on the list. Also, it had lovely patterns on its feathers, which of course I love.

To get into the final 10 which will then be judged by a panel, I need lots of votes for my design. Please rate my design by clicking on the palm trees. (5 palm trees is the best rating...hint hint)

Hope you like it!

Rate "Laughing Owl"

Thank youuuuuuuu
