Heels on wheels!

Hooray! I have now finished most of the Illustrations for a new book due early next year. Here is a teeny sneak peak of the 50+ illustrations I've done. The book is a very lovely, yet practical guide for female bike enthusiasts.
I worked digitally for this project, mostly due to time and the flexibility to change things down the line. I'm very fond of photoshop and enjoyed exploring and refining my style but I'm very much looking forward to getting out the ol' 0.5mm again.

Time to get thinking about some personal projects!

Hello Gabrielle!

Thanks so much.

I tend to create shapes using black ink and a black pencil , then scan, layer and colour. Perhaps I should do a process post soon!

I'd love to get a copy of your book when it's released! I love bicycles, but perhaps your illustrations even more!
Please let us know when it's been published :)

totally gorgeous :) they look very hand-rendered and tactile despite the photoshop!

can't wait to see the book!
