Mid century children's book illustrations

I'm so sorry for the lack of posts this week, I have been flat out working on various designs for packaging etc, I particularly like the fonts they have used.
I thought I'd show you a few of my fave book illustrations in the mean time!
enjoy, till soon..

HYUNDI Depertment store Valantines day packaging

I have had the pleasure to work on some wonderful projects in the last few months. They will have to remain hush hush for some time yet. However to my delight I received a package from Korea yesterday that I am please to be able to share with you!
Inside a beautiful parcel, wrapped in aqua blue paper, was a red box and inside that where the Valentines gift packaging items featuring one of my designs for the Hyundai Department stores in South Korea.
Every year they find an artist that they think will suit the occasion and ask if they can use a piece of their art, the great thing is that I didn't have to do anything! I think it looks gorgeous I especially like the Valentine's Day font they have chosen, it gives it a slight 1950's feel, the colours to are so pretty.
Thank you so much Joohee for this wonderful opportunity!

Native bird illustration and groovy 50's fan!

the kids are back at school and it's time to create in peace!
my first project: a new range of New Zealand themed greeting cards, I'm not sure yet if the hats are a good idea.
I popped into my dear friend Annie's shop a couple of days ago very hot (it's been glorious weather!)
she handed me the grooviest fan that I simply have to show you, isn't it fab!
