Just been working of a project designing cute food characters. All these illustrations are designed to be repeating patterns so they can be used on a range of products like bed covers, pillows, and other homewares. It’s been a fun project but drawing food all day makes me hungry especially when it’s ice cream.

Muck Children's Clothing
Muck Children's Clothing. I worked on a collaboration with a children’s clothing company called Muck Clothing from The Netherlands. We produced a new range of clothing for boys and girls using characters from my Chocolate Log theme. It was an interesting project to work on, for the photo shoot they created life size characters that the children interacted with. Also a colouring-in competition was used for marketing with the Disney Club magazine and hundreds of entries were coloured in and submitted.
Water Buddies - Flavoured water for kids (and the young at heart) I've been designing some cute characters with design studio Mount Deluxe on a new range of healthy flavoured water drinks for children called Water Buddies. It was for a client MMC Tradelink based in Auckland who export NZ products throughout the world. I had previously worked with them on packaging for infant formula. Everyone is really happy with the result and they all look super cute and fresh. The range will be released soon in New Zealand so I believe this would be a great and healthy option for kids compared to some drinks currently out in the market.
