Mr. Snake, made this afternoon without tutorial help. I am pleased I could get the body shapes the way I wanted.

Vector Bunny!

This afternoon I created this little guy on Illustrator. I am still learning the ropes, but a great first attempt! Will start making some other vector animals.

Vector Cambodian

Using my photographs from travelling I hope to make a variety of artworks, including illustrations, web designs, logos and vectors. Here's the start, my little vector cambodian. He's a boy I taught English to.

Graffiti Geologist

After doing some work experience at a local company I learnt how to make a graffiti style image using Illustrator and Photoshop.

Thailand Pt 4, April - May 2014

Back to an old fav, headed across the border for our final stop, Koh Chang. Best part was completing a Thai cooking course with Gip. Making spring rolls, pad thai, chicken and cashew and a masaman curry. Yuuuummmm! After 18 months of travel, wonderful experiences and meeting lovely people,  it was time to head home and step foot into the real world.

Cambodia Pt 2, March -April 2014

After celebrating Christmas in the UK with our families, we headed back out to Australia in January where we worked again for Monkey Mia. After this we headed back to one of our favourite countries- Cambodia! Travelled south to Kampot and Kep. Loved these places, pepper plantations, quad biking, salt fields. Then we volunteered at Samrong Childrens farm near to Phnom Penh teaching English to disadvantaged kids. One of the best experiences of the whole trip! And we got the witness the Khmer New Year with 72 cans of Anchor.

Thailand Pt 3, November - December 2013

A quick trip to Thailand before heading home for Christmas. The Railay was splendid, as were the phallic shape objects placed inside a cave for the gods. Koh Phi-Phi was beautiful from the viewpoint, but is headed towards a terrible time with rubbish, pollution and population. Thankfully there is no tourist development on Maya Bay, where 'The Beach' was filmed. The gorgeous lady-boys of Bangkok.

Indonesia, Bali, Gili T, October -November 2013

Back to Asia! Gili T typically tropical, in all the good ways. No transport apart from horse drawn carriages. Only downside was a problem with sanitation, which a lot of SE Asian islands have. A tour of Ubud and the surroundings meant seeing monkeys, rice paddies and a volcano. The amount of hawkers on Kuta beach was too much for some travellers to deal with, they surround you like moths to a flame.

East Coast Australia, September -November 2013

Hired a sweet little camper for a month stereotypical road trip down the east coast. Highlights were the Daintree, Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef, Byron Bay, Steve Irwin's Zoo and the Blue Mountains. Kangaroos have the most unexpected soft fur.

North WA, Darwin, July - September 2013

A road trip west from Broome ending up in Kununurra where we landed another job. Pasted through the notorious Wolfe Creek crater- huge! And definitely scary, middle of nowhere vibes! Stunning Moab trees. The last two pictures from Darwin, flew there after Kununurra. The weird dinosaur bird, Cassowary and the dinosaur Crocs!

Western Australia, Perth to Broome, March - July 2013

Landed in Perth and then landed an amazing waitress job at Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort in Shark Bay. 3.5 months spent there, designing and chalking all the boards and being commissioned by a friend to do a wall mural. Headed north with Aussie Wander tour to see all the amazing sights the west coast had to offer. Karajinni National park, a rare beauty.
