After breaking my elbow, having the pig flu and a variety of other disasters I can now say that Ihave completed all the fuit and veg illustrations for Moss Green Childrens Books. These are educational colouring pages for children to show them how fruit and veg grow, natural pests and when to plant and pick the food. Here are a few examples of what I've been up to, all the pages can be found on the Moss Green Website. Next is endangered species, which I'm really looking forward to drawing. Apologies for the use of Comic Sans, it was part of the brief.

Just when I thought life couldn't get much worse I manage to go and fracture my elbow. Therefore now I can't do any drawing, and am left doing one finger typing with my left hand. Woe is me. Any suggestions of ways to amuse myself would be great. I'm bored and in pain and have watched all three seasons of the IT Crowd in 48 hours.

I will shortly be producing a limited run of canvas screen printed bird bags, featuring 4 different designs of different types of parrot. These will be for sale in my shop, prototype is seen in the image above. I still haven't decided if they will be full colour prints or monotone, but either way will be awesome and the must have bag of 2009.
This is my flyer for our new night running in London, it's going to be a fabulous mix of lovely people and some very fun music. Myself and a few friends have started to run nights under the banner of Booze tits/Teenwolf is cool and will shortly be expanding to in to running exhibitions of lovely new creative work, so all designers, illustrators, photographers etc. please get in touch if you would like your work shown in some of East London's best venues with some of the most fun private views you could wish for.

Every year I like to check out the graduate work from Brighton, as its always interesting to see people who have been in the same environment that I studied in and how the course is progressing.
Here are a few images I took at Crufts '09. I had a fabulous day out drawing and photographing. I find the relationship between people and animals constantly fascinating, and loved watching the owners get their beloved show dogs ready for the ring. I would send any one who hasn't ever visited Crufts to go along, but watch "Best in Show" first, as it makes it all the more hilarious.
A brief introduction;
This is the blog to co-exist with nataliathorpe.com, in it I shall be showing you what I’m working on, new bits of work and a few explanations. As I am a keen photographer I will also be sharing with you some of my favourite photo’s I have taken on a variety of topics. I also will be ranting lots, adding in images that interest me, and also showcasing the work of other illustrators who I think are of note and worth a mention. Please feel free to have a bit of input, I like emails, and a healthy crit.
