I’ve recently finished a lovely illustration project for the Oxford Leider classical music festival 2017 - The Last Of The Romantics – Mahler And Fin-De-Siècle Vienna. I produced a set of four Ver Sacrum inspired illustrations for the inside of the brochure, which is available to see here (There will also be printed brochures too.) I first sketched out each illustration in pencil, then fine line pen, before transferring them to vector. I then applied the 4 colours from their corporate colour palette. Read more.

I have recently finished working on a great project with Third Millennium Books, a publishing house in London. They commissioned me to produce a set of illustrations to feature on the front and back cover of a book called LJMU – The Making of a Modern University. I also attended Liverpool John Moores and graduated in 2008. Its funny how things link back to each other – small world. New section here.

I’ll be taking on more freelance projects, if you would like to collaborate, get in touch: charlottetheillustrator@gmail.com

I’ve just completed my first book whilst working at Nonconform. ’The Nigerian Voices’ is a unique publication that takes you on a journey, sharing the voices of Nigerians who decided to leave their country of birth from the 1960′s onwards, and settle in the city of Bradford. The project addresses the need to record the unique experiences of elderly members of the Nigerian community, capturing their cultural heritage and their experiences, uncovering a previously untold history of migration. This book will aim to positively inform and influence attitudes of future generations and the wider community by encouraging a greater understanding of different cultures. The Nigerian Voices project was led by former NCAB member and chair of NLN Ayo Bakare, and a committed group of volunteers from Nigerian Community Association Bradford (NCAB).

A few things beginning to emerge though, and this is one of them…Average Arts have featured one of my drawings in their recent mag/zine, which is great. There’s loads of other weird n wonderful work in there as well. You can buy one from HERE. I’ll post more stuff soon.

Over the weekend, I joined the Merseyside Civic Society at one of their public meetings to do a bit of live drawing. This meeting was held at The Lyceum, which is situated in one of my favourite places, Port Sunlight. There was also a tour around the village, even though it was bitterly cold! Afterwards I went for a meander around the Lady Lever Gallery (it would have been rude not to.)

This year I’m going to try and collaborate with lots of different people, as collaboration could lead to new things, and a way of learning new processes. I was approached by Hex Ceramic who creates ceramic tiles at DoES Liverpool. We are currently playing around with a few drawings, and they are shaping up well. I will post pics once they are finished, I may sell them as sets. Click here to watch a quick vid of a mould being created by a laser cutter.
