Marks and Spencer 'Telling Tales' logo design

Here's the logo I designed for Marks and Spencer's new campaign called 'Telling Tales'. Have a look below for more details on the campaign and how to enter the very exciting competition...

M&S Schoolwear - Telling Tales competition!

Parents, if you or your child has a great and fantastical excuse for their messy school uniform, then let Marks & Spencers know on Twitter using the hashtag #‎TellingTales‬ and you could win your very own illustration from myself or another great Children's book illustrator.
Have a look at the video below and then head to HERE for more details!

Good luck!

Three Little Ducks

 Here's a painting I did for some friends who have just had a baby. I cut out a stencil for the bodies and used a sponge to paint them and then added extra details on top.
