Last summer I was lucky to work on a design proposal for Royal Mail and their Christmas stamps for 2014. It was a dream job!
Working in such a small scale was a real challenge for me as my work is so detailed. I was pleased with the final result, but my designs were not adopted in the end... Of all the opportunities and jobs that I have missed, this is one of those I still feel sorry for, even after a year. This is part of our work as illustrators though. Not every project and every sample is used or published.
Royal Mail gave me permission to include the illustrations in my portfolio. They own the full copyright to the images though, so please, share the link if you like them, but don't take them or use them in another blog post! Thank you.

In January I had the opportunity to work on a rather unusual project. This new editions of Goldielocks and the Tree Bears, published by Editions Fleurus, has a simple but lovely paper engineering. Each page is made by two rotating disks so the scene inside changes.
I'm very pleased with the print quality and how well the book was put together. One of my favourite projects this year!
