Ok, so I'm 100 lovely faces away from 1,000 followers on Twitter! And I think reaching that huge number is something worth celebrating so I thought I'd do a Twitter Giveaway for all my awesome Twitterers. All you have to do is FOLLOW and RETWEET the following post:

"RT Giveaway! FOLLOW @EmilyMayHopgood (Emily May Illustration) and RETWEET to win a FREE PRINT and CARD!"

The more times you RETWEET and spread the love the more times you'll be entered into the draw. Remember, only both followers and retweeters will be entered!

When I've hit the big 1,000 a winner will be selected at random and will get to choose one of the following prints...

...and one of the following greeting cards....

Good luck you wonderful human beings and get tweeting! Peace x

For the past few weeks my Dog Faces print has been available to buy on beautifully cosy cushions all thanks to Oh Deer. Fingers crossed you'll be seeing more of these...


My Jackalope illustration for Brat and Suzie is now available to buy on ASOS!

My illustrations of various clothes and accessories, and also my ASOS Jungle concept (photographed owned by ASOS)


Many hours spent in a studio in Brighton creating this non-repeat print design inspired by traditional Hawaiian print, reworked with wild British flowers and weeds. The illustration measuring 1.5m in width was used by designer Miranda Greenwood to create her range of menswear.

Mariachi Band

Ok, so I've been busy working on two BIG commissions over the past few months which I am very excited to reveal. However, though they may be finished I am not yet able to publish them... so in the meantime here is my drawing of a mariachi band... enjoy

(This was something I came up with when I first started doodling ideas for a Mariachi Doritos UK Tour brief last week but then I massively ran out of time. These guys sadly won't be showing their faces on the tour posters, but at least they are having a good time anyway.)
