< Go Back

i was asked by the lovely viva lewes people if i would like to do the front cover of the June edition of the “what’s on in lewes” (ie EVERYTHING!) magazine.

of course i said yes.

and here is the finished thing that popped through my letter box the other week.

thought i would share my working process for it.

i created a colour palette that i thought would work well


i did a rough sketch

VL_june14 design


i made clunky cut out collage flowers and fauna


i scanned them in and made them nice and shiny

viva2flars viva1flars

then i put it all together and did the typography

am so thrilled how the colours came out.


looks really summery i think!


and i even got a little blurby write up inside…


i will be selling lovely signed a4 giclee prints of the cover (on somerset 330gms photorag paper) for £15 so let me know interested

bah, oh drats, it is raining, and the path has flooded…. let us hope it doesn't stop people stopping by…wb_250

…for marshmallow rocky road, oat and raisin chocolate cookies, banana bread or lemon loaf…


here we are, the worker bees


snippysews smiling and waiting for their new homes


unframed prints, silver jewellery and badges, there has to be badges


shelves all dressed and neat and tidy


books waiting to be signed and read


silly old rain rain go away, come back another day.

now to sit down and listen to the singing detective sound track and try and resist eating all the cake!
