I have to say there's nothing more satisfying than getting paid for doing something you love. The past few months I've been doing a few illustrated blog headers and I really enjoy doing them. You can see some examples here, here and here. If you're interested in your own, drop me an email! :)
I've also been working on a commission for Appliances Online, who are creating an online rainbow cookbook. Appliances Online are promoting some lovely new coloured cookers, called the Newworld colours collection and so they asked 7 illustrators and 7 food bloggers to join forces and create an illustrated recipe based on a colour of the rainbow. I'd been given a blue cheese gratin to illustrate, and you can see the result above!
It's a great feeling once you've finished the illustration and both parties are happy! xo
