I’m thrilled to be included in Uppercase magazine’s Work/Life 3 illustration annual, which is out now! I’m a big fan of Uppercase and if you’re an artist / designer / creative / maker type, then you’ll love it too. I saw last year’s issue and thought it was fabulous, so I applied for this edition and was so happy to be included. Artists are interviewed and are then given a brief based on that — for me, my brief was to use my love of baking to create a new series called ‘Home Sweet Home’. And the images below are what I came up with. I don’t get to bake as often as I’d like these days, but it’s a real passion of mine. And I love all the beautiful ingredients and tools and vessels you get to work with.
Always a good exercise to work to a brief. Up until a few months ago, my work was all self-directed. But more and more, I’m getting brief-based work and it really forces you to shake things up and push yourself past your comfort zone! I’m happy with how these turned out, and you’ll see one of them on greeting cards for Madison Park Greetings one day soon!
