I've just made a book using blurb.com, which shows the best of my work during my three years a Blackpool. It only lets you see the first 15 pages, so if you want to see the rest your going to have to buy it! I hope you like it!

We had a VL (visiting lecturer) at college today, Vicky White. She is an old student from the Scientific and Natural History Illustration course at Blackpool and now has a successful career as a wildlife artist. She is represented by the Jonathan Cooper Gallery in London, but has also illustrated a couple of books published by Walker. She has her second solo show at Jonathan Cooper in November.

Here's a polar bear i've been working on for my '10 to watch' project. It has been painted onto a stretched canvas using alkyds.
I think i need to make his fur more yellow, but am a bit worried it'll just make the painting look dirty, as it will probably clash with the background hues.
Here are a couple of illustrations I did over Easter. They are both the same size, about A3, and done on stretched watercolour paper in watercolours.
I've added some extra detail over the top with a pencil and black fine liner.
I have tried to capture the seagulls' movement, and some of the characteristics they display when interacting with one another.
