Since I live in Scotland now, it only seems appropriate that I draw wee Scottish beasties, ye ken? Next onto the elusive three-legged haggis!

Also while freelancing for Anthropologie, I got the chance to help create from scratch this butterfly window design! Pretty neat to see your hard work looking out on Edinburgh’s busy George Street. The job included 3 parts: butterflies, the swarm and the prisms. First the butterflies which entailed painting hundreds of pieces of large paper a very specific 8 tones, di-cutting an obscene number of butterflies, stringing them all on fishing wire. Then on to making the swarm (which I did all on my own!) from chicken wire and paper mache spray painted gold, and then each buttefly meticulously selected and hot glued on. Finally, the prisms (which I did not have to construct…fortunately) got a paint treatment from 3 layers of greys and silvers, with brown and brass dry brushing on the corners to have the appearance of burnished metal.

Most of the display artwork at Anthropologie is a group effort, so these are some hanging chandeliers that I was on the construction team for!

Was recently employed as a freelance artist for Anthropologie in Edinburgh, these are two of the signs I made for their merchandising displays.
