wall art

Morning all! Just a quick one today... a couple of wall-art designs I recently did for a company here in  Australia. The brief was to create cute sea creatures that would be suitable for a boy or a girl's room. It was actually a lot trickier than I thought it would be to make them gender-neutral! Have you ever had that problem? I didn't realise how much I tend to think in terms of gender when creating illustrations for kids, although personally I've never subscribed to the idea that 'pink is for girls and blue is for boys'! Anyway, it was a super-fun project, I enjoyed every moment of it :) Have a lovely Thursday!

Those are soooo adorable Bee! Really! I want them :P Will they be printed on canvas? Are they for sale? I've had the challenge of doing gender neutral kids. Can you imagine that? Basically I drew a kid with funky hair, no ears, a long t-shirt and jeans hee hee.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
