A little hello

Hi there!

I’m Chelsea, an Australian illustrator based in Port Charlotte, Florida. I’m new around this side of the planet so I thought the best way to introduce myself would be to post on here weekly about the projects I’m working on and to show you what I do!

I’ve been freelancing in illustration for 3 and a half years and I moved to Florida in September of this year to marry my husband Justice who is a Floridian. Prior to moving to Florida I was living in Preston, Australia in a shoe box of an apartment.

In this week’s blog post I’m going to give you a little taste of the work I’ve been doing over the last month so next week we can dive into fresh work!

A small collection of digital illustrations I’ve been doing as a part of Inktober on Instagram which has been a really engaging challenge as I’m quite new to digital illustration!

 The cover of my new sketchbook that I’ve started this month!

A little collection of tunes I’ve been playing on repeat while I scribble this month.

I also started making hand painted cards! I’m looking at doing this in a lot more depth when I reopen my Etsy shop in the coming months.

Last of all I’ve been keeping a weekly video schedule over on YouTube! I’ve been sharing my sketchbook, time lapses of my process on Leonardo and I’ve even been cooking! It’s been all sorts of fun.

I think that’s definitely enough to start you guys off with an update! If you made it this far thank you! I promise the coming blog posts won’t be as much of a mad splosh of information! xx
