illustration of An autumnal forest with falling leaves and fox.
illustration of Illustrated scenes commissioned by Marks & Spencer to be printed around their Christmas gin liqueurs. 

The bottles are snow globes- the gin contains edible gold leaf and feature an LED light in the base, so when shaken they become snowy landscapes. I was tasked with illustrating a winter wonderland of animals and trees, and a festive high street scene, including a little M&S shopfront!
