a londonish illustration

Michelle was so kind to have me do the poster/flyer illustration for her sister's new theatre piece showing in October in London. I had such fun with this one!

and bees!

Vicki Thomas teaches the scientific illustration module of our degree course. She's the Grande Dame of botanical illustration in this part of the world, and taught us ways with watercolour (with patience and grace). 

These bumblebees are half-way finished but I think I'll leave them as they are. I paid the Kirstenbosch Biennale a visit on Sunday. Lovely stuff; my favourite was Sibonelo Chiliza's painstaking colour pencil work. The show ends September 24th and entry is free.
