Tippy and The Bird

I'm a huge fan of Uppercase Magazine so I was pretty excited to have been selected for the
third edition of their Work/Life 3: the UPPERCASE directory of illustration. Each artist created a
bespoke image based on their interests and personal story. This is the image I created. 

I told editor Janine Vangool I grew up on a picture book-like family farm with lots of animals including a dog named Tippy. Here's Tippy engaging with a slightly cautious bird as she makes her rounds. To see the interview and snaps of my letterpress studio get yourself a copy of Work/Life 3.
