It's not often that a magazine asks you to decorate it's pages with illustrations and also work on the front and back cover, so when asked by Hitched Magazine to do just that I jumped at the chance. Following in the footsteps of fellow Jacky Winter Group illustrators Emma Leonard and Rik Lee who illustrated issues 1 & 2 I was excited to have my turn to fill Hitched with my images and then receive that copy in the post!
This issue was inspired by the poem The Owl and the Pussycat and I was briefed to illustrate a romantic night boat scene which was fun as (you can see from my folio) I don't get asked to do scenery very regularly. The issue is filled with Owl and Pussycat references including a repeat pattern and quotes on the front and back cover. If you're planning a wedding and bridal magazines make you cringe, you will be happy to know that Hitched is a contemporary boutique wedding magazine without a meringue dress in sight! Take a look below and see the pieces I created along with an interview about my work. www.hitchedmag.com.au
