So our neighbours daughter may play her keyboard far too early, play too much Lady Gaga far too loud and have a devilish habit of screaming at the top of her lungs then telling her mother it was us... fair play to her shes got some great birthday card making skills. I had no idea her and David Cameron were so close.

If you wish to own a similarly rad birthday card, or a greeting card for another occasion, I now have some bits for sale in my Etsy shop. Please have a browse - EMILY MAY ILLUSTRATION SHOP

Endangered Creature Alphabet

I was asked to draw a mighty African Elephant for the first page of the Endangered Creature Alphabet book, Creaturemag's latest collaborative project. It is an illustrated collection of 26 threatened species, drawn by 26 selected artists. Being the most insane animal lover I was obviously thrilled to be involved. I was mostly keen to tackle the task of drawing a leathery beast, which seemed a difficult one to me as I usually spend hours drawing tedious amounts of fur (which I freakishly love). I decided to keep it simple, focusing on colour, keeping the detail in small sections. I am really pleased with my final illustration, and was even more pleased when I was told mine would be making the front cover...
