king of diamonds playing arts card

a while ago i got an email inviting me to design a card as part of a competition/kickstarter for playing arts. as a rule, i don’t normally enter illustration/design competitions as i don’t really agree with them, but every now and then it’s fun to and/or what you’d have to make is quick and simple.

sweet dreams collage by laura redburn

i love when ideas and collages come together quickly and easily. it’s rare for me but always welcomed!

my work by

collage by laura redburn in betty magazine

recently i had the absolute pleasure of illustrating a piece for the wonderful betty magazine. i was in the previous issue, but with pieces i’d already made (albeit amended) so it was wonderful to make something from scratch this time!

the theme of the issue is all things floral and nature, and the article i was chosen to make an illustration for was titled ‘the perks of being a shrinking violet’ ..something i identify well with! i got a synopsis of the article to help get the ideas flowing, and evidently it worked because i came up with this pretty quickly!
