I find that characters really come to life when you put them in the right environment, so after designing the 'Blue Nose Friends' and creating their world it was time to throw them all together!

For each plush launch (usually four characters at a time, every three months) I illustrated a full scene to be used on the brand website and marketing materials, such as leaflets, posters and in store displays in retailers such as Clinton's and Tesco.

Occasionally a scene would also be used on other products, such as advent calendars, stationery, partyware and even apparel.

During my time at Carte Blanche Greetings these were the most fun pieces to work on as they included characters, environments and storytelling elements, all rendered with believable lighting schemes - all of my favourite things!
