I could stay with the penguins all day, I am not sure about if they can see us humans looking at them through the glass or not but it definitely seems like it as they show off and come really close and look straight at us.
In an ideal world there would be no zoo's and lot's of nature for wild animals and no conflict between humans and animals and all that, but now unfortunately there is and event though I don't like caged animals, I like conservation and feel unbelievably lucky that I can go and get eye to eye and observe amazing creatures close like this and with especially the penguins I have to say that I think London Zoo has done a great job and given them an amazing space.
Almost looks cute but a bite would kill you.
I love the expression in this monkeys face!
That's it from me, for once the sun is shining in London so I am going out to enjoy it while it lasts!

I am not working full-time as an Illustrator, I freelance as a Designer and Artworker for various clients and I have done a little bit of styling which has been super fun. Here is some homeware styling that I have done for the lovely Ella Doran that I wanted to share with you. Down below is my absolute favourite project, when Ella was about to release her new lampshade collection I wondered if we could photograph them in a completely different, contrasting environment and maybe hang them in a forest - so we did and I love how it turned out;
That's it from me for now.

I have been blogging a lot about the A Study of Sports and Leisure exhibition but haven't really showed what I exhibited in the show and here it is, the Animal Kingdom Bear, Monday/PMS Unicorn and the Bi polar polar-bear. They will be available as A1 and A3 limited edition prints in my online shops soon.
Have a nice weekend!
