Lily The Littlest Angel: Winger O'Reilly and Book 2 Cast!

Winger O'Reilly is a new addition to Lily's cast. He first appears in the second book in the 'Lily the Littlest Angel" series written by Elizabeth Pulford.
He is such a groovy character!
The initial rough above was approved when I first designed this character.

When it came to working on the internal illustrations someone mentioned that he looks.. gay.
So I added facial hair and made his boots less pointy and more workman-like-boots! :D

So here goes the entire main cast for the second book, enjoying a nice pancake and tea party :)

Sparkle Creations 1st Anniversary Release & Hop!!!

Welcome to the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps 1st Anniversary Hop
To celebrate a year of SCRS we are releasing 4 new SCRS stamps this month!
First of all I want to thank Sparkle for choosing me to illustrate for her beautiful store. And a big love to the wonderful DT, I am so inspired by all your creations. I just adore seeing all the black and white illustrations I do turn into magical creations in the hands of these talented people!

Being the illustrator for the store I thought I would show the work process for each of the new release, and how I coloured them up! :) ENJOY

Lily The Littlest Angel: Petal

Now that the books in the store I can show you more! 
Petal is a new addition to the wonderful Lily cast in the second book "Lily has a Secret" (Can you guess what the secret is?)

In the Manuscript the author Elizabeth Pulford described Petal as a small grey blue Kitten with big eyes. 
I love drawing animals, especially cats! :)
