The first full moon of the year was pretty in purple here in Whistler, it was also approx. minus a million degrees celsius, flippin' chilly!

Here are a couple of illustrations of Whistler. There are idyllic little cabins around every corner, and I spotted this one looking across Alta lake, with a canoe on the jetty and the descending snowline on Blackcomb mountain behind. Hopefully soon Whistler village will have a nice blanket of snow.

Winter is coming, and here are some winter landscape illustrations with a few photos from Whistler, Canada. I was looking at retro travel posters and paint by numbers landscapes for inspiration. The first illustration is an inuksuk at the top of 7th Heaven, inuksuks are Inuit stone landmarks built for various reasons, but my favourite purpose I have read about is to remind travellers that they are not alone and they are on the right path, which is nice. The second illustration is the view from Big Red Chair going up Whistler mountain, it's a really long chairlift, but with some friends on a sunny day it's a pretty good way to travel. The last photo is the glorious early morning view from the Whistler village gondola, full of excitement and anticipation.

I have been working on some illustrations of the London skyline, imagining the sounds of roadworks and traffic drifting up from below. With a colour palatte inspired by vintage travel posters.

This is a little illustration series I created of St. James' Park in London. I used to work near Trafalgar Square and would take a lunchtime power walk to look at the pelicans and colourful ducks and tourists taking photos of squirrels.
