The first illustration is about Hannah Twynnoy, the first lady to be killed by a tiger from a traveling roadshow in the 1700's. The artwork gave me the chance to mess around with some more hand drawn type, which i've been dying to do. I worked for so long hand scratching this type in a miniscule stroke weight that I'm now suffering with Carpal tunnel syndrome (check out the detail), ouch :(( and now having to take a rest from illustrating for a little while if i can. The second illustration, Sloth - what more can i say but they are ace and i want to draw many more!

It was my sister Faye's 40th birthday and I decided to immortalise my neices in one of my colourful portraits. I think everyone was well pleased including me. Have a look at more work like this is on my portrait site www.jane-anderson.co.uk
Each month AOI (Association of illustrators) feature three illustrators who describe a little about how they work and who they work for. I was really chuffed to be selected as May's featured illustrator. Nice exposure, cheers guys!
