Freelance Illustrator

Penguin and zebra fun!

Started a life drawing night class last night to get back into practise of drawing from observation and life. Going to post each weeks progress for something a little different from my normal posts.

Couple Portrait
Part of a little wedding commission! I love working on anything to do with weddings - need to do more of the same! :) 
The more I look at it, the more I prefer this original to my more design-y version I posted yesterday. Anyone else agree? 
Children’s Book Illustration commissioned as a wedding gift to the parents of these two girls.
Me and Hannah Burlace at Comica in the British Library over the Summer. 

Really glad I had the opportunity to exhibit at the Edinburgh Fringe this Summer with Blink Gallery. Hopefully will be back again next year with some brand new books to exhibit :) 

Rethinking the cover for The Queen behind the scenes. What do you think? Watch this space for new never-before-seen Queen behind the scenes illustrations as I produce a new longer edition :) 
There’s lots going on over at my website - news, updates, exhibitions and a big spoiler of my new book! Go see… 
Had so much fun creating this happy image of some ladies-that-lunch for a friend’s card that I decided to try it out as a piece of editorial illustration. - If only I had the perfect article for it to sit alongside! 

Emma Bowden Illustration takes on London :)

So it’s exhibition week! Preparations have been in full swing for a long time now and its finally here! Tomorrow I will be graduating at the Royal Festival Hall in London, and following that my first exhibition starts at Freerange in Brick Lane, London on Thursday. It then runs over the weekend until Monday. And then its exhibition numero 2! New Designers 2014 Part 2 which is taking place at the London Business Centre. This is a really exciting event for creative professionals, come and find me exhibiting alongside my colleagues at the UCA stand.
