Some New Illustrations

First up, some fast food, and a dessert...

I've been updating my website a lot more lately.
I've got some fun projects in the works at the moment, which I'll share here once they're finalised.
I'm also working on some restaurant illustrations from my recent trip to the Sunshine Coast, including a beautiful meal at The Long Apron in the Hinterland. What a beautiful location and experience.

Happy weekend + a Discount

I've been a busy bee lately...
I've been adding lots of wedding pieces to my Etsy store.
I know that the weekend is the time lots of people are organising and planning their weddings.
Therefore, I've got a discount to offer, as a way of making this process a bit less tedious, and a bit more fun!
All of my wedding sets are completely editable, which means you have complete control over wording. So that means... you get to be as schmaltzy or low key as you wish!
Below is the voucher code.
You can visit my store HERE.
Happy weekend, and happy planning

Photo Shoot Day

Today I had a photoshoot of a couple of my most recent wedding invitation suites. I'm now selling them on Etsy, as a printable set. You can find them at www.etsy.shop/hermanandivywedding
Once a style is chosen, the customer just has to let me know what wording and names, etc, they want. Then, hey presto, 24-48 hours later, a custom wedding suite is born! 
Below are the photos from today's shoot...

A New Wedding Suite

I have just added some new invitations to my website.
One is for a Hen's day

and the other is a wedding suite.

I also made this gif the other day.
Sometimes I am so good at procrastinating. But then I am kept awake at night wondering why I am not a more diligent worker-bee. But then I also remember that that's boring..
It's in those moments of boredom that I create things like the below!

New Wedding Stationery

I've just added this new wedding suite to my website...
You can view the whole suite here.
Plus I've started a new FB page.
Come join me.
I have no followers yet, and it feels odd, seeing as I used to have about 500!
You can find it at here.
I'll see you there...

Weekend Vibes

The way the weekend feels!
I created this during the week.
I'm really enjoying getting around hand-drawing type.
Also, I just realised, I left my full time job 1 year ago today.
So many thanks to my best friend for all of the support he gives me, especially when I'm having an 'all my work sucks, what was I thinking doing this' moment.
 So many things have happened though, and I wouldn't take any of it back for anything!

An update...

So I have changed my mind.
I feel like the decision I made to leave the world of Blogger was not the right one for me at the time.
So, I am back!
I will update what I can remember has happened of any importance since I posted on here last.
I think the least overwhelming way to do this will be to do a few different posts.
Let's go...
The best thing that happened to me, as far as my 'career' is concerned, was that I got a contract to illustrate a cook book. That was FUN! And so unexpected!
I posted a recipe to THEY DRAW AND COOK, which they posted. If you haven't already, check the site out.
Next, GIBBS SMITH publishing got in touch with me based on seeing that one post.
I really still can't believe how it happened, and truly feel so lucky to have been spotted by them.
Here's the link to the book.
And here are a few pics of some of the illustrations I created to go in the book... (the book is about salad dressings!)

Hello and apologies!
I've been away so long.
There are so many places to keep up with posting to now.
So... I have moved my blog.
I hope you will visit me there sometimes.
In the meantime, here's an illustration I did kind-of recently.
