Big news, guys! I’ve been chosen as a finalist in the 15 for 15 award for self-employed businesses.  
I’ve written about the nomination, and why freelancers are important too in this new blog post - http://emmelineillustration.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/15-for-15-award-finalist.html
'Enterprising individuals right across Britain are starting brand new businesses every day.

Most of them aren’t well connected entrepreneurs launching trendy startups and boasting millionaire backers. They are independent, enterprising people making the brave choice to go it alone because they want control of their own destiny.


There are now almost five million self-employed people working in the UK and that number is growing all the time. They are some of the brightest and most independent minds in business and 15 for 15 aims to give the most promising among them a little helping hand.


That’s why we are looking for the independent professionals who are set for big things in 2015. We want to find fifteen independent minds who truly represent the diversity, enterprise and bravery of Britain’s self-employed.’

So Festival Number 6 was beyond magical last weekend. Such a place! I have serious post-festival blues, so threw myself into capturing the spirit through illustration.  New blog post up about it all here.

Brand new Norwegian Wood print in my shop! http://emmelineillustration.mysupadupa.com/collections/art-prints/products/norwegian-wood

Just in time for the new Murakami novel tomorrow as well - exciting!

Just had an order request for one of these Norwegian Wood posters, so if anyone else fancies one now’s the time to ask!

Illustrated this for the release of the film adaptation of Murakami’s Norwegian Wood and ended up a finalist in the poster competition. Had a great little exhibition at the Curzon cinema and I danced next to Tony Leung at the film premiere party. This illustration has had a surge of re-popularity after being featured on the Murakami facebook page recently. Pretty chuffed, I love Murakami’s work (although The Wind Up Bird Chronicle is my favourite!).

So! Drop me an email if you fancy one of these prints as I’ll only be stocking up a small amount. hello@emmelineillustration.com 

Found this oldie Summer sketch hidden away in my files today! Really need to get around to colouring it.
