First time pitch

long term plan

risk assessment

team problem solving

As I was still studying at college, a job offer came through, where I was asked to pitch for a corporate visual artist position. (I didnt get the job, but ended up with these humorous drawings)
I'm still quite happy with them and think that imagery of this kind should definitely penetrate the high brow suit district.

Mr Podlesniy

When I was young, a lot of my time was spent in the outdoors of Russia's country houses known as the dachas.
The home grown vegetable patches with some 40 plus types of tomatoes was forte of Mr Podlesniy. I remember him as his house had burned down one year, and yet he managed to carry on.
Somehow when I found this drawing by accident it brought me right back to the time I was a little girl, to the place called Chepelovo, near Chekhov, named after the great Russian writer and playwright Anton Chekhov.

Older Work

I was clearing through debris of rubbish on my external harddrive, when I came across some sweet examples of work I did circa 2004/6. I did a whole series of random portraits using the brush tool of photoshop. Its nice to reflect.

Nina and Dickie

Another beautiful commission I made for Nina and Dickie who tied the knot at the end of 2009. A bouquet of red currents, poppies and clementines adorning their names.
