Migration Myths

So I was asked to be part of Spoonful Zine issue 6 and the brief was to create an illustration of a hummingbird. Not knowing all that much about humming birds I did a little research and found a really funny myth about their migration patterns. For some reason people had trouble believing these tiny birds could migrate unassisted and therefore came up with the theory that they hitchhiked a ride on the backs of geese.
This is completely untrue but the idea made me laugh so I tried to create a kind of retro travel poster for hummingbirds. Hope you like it!! You can check out the zine at just by clicking on the neat little round button below :)

woodland creatures are so hot right now.

Hello again!

Recently I went to a craft market in Sydney and I noticed that almost every stall was selling items that had either owls, foxes, rabbits or deers/ stags on them. It made me laugh, but with the intensions of selling my work at markets soon I thought I should get in on the woodland creature action as they were selling like hot cakes! So I am selling out in my own quirky way I guess. Ah well...

Bath Time!

Another illustration for the spoilt series, inspired by dog spas. I hope you get a giggle out of it!
I think this illustration also works really well for this weeks theme on illustration friday which is Fluid :)
