Reading Poster



I had the pleasure of making this primary school reading poster for Cheetham Church of England Community Academy, incorporating their school uniform and logo.

It was originally for their new 'entrance library'. A dedicated reading area in their entry hall to promote a love of reading within the school. I had the fun task of choosing the titles for this cute mini-library and helped re-design the space. But now I hear it's to be displayed around the rest of the school too, which is lovely to know.




If you know a school, library or bookshop that might want a reading poster created in a way that's personal to their community, please feel free to get in touch: laura.trinder@live.co.uk

Hope everyone is having a fab 2018 so far! If not, read a Harry book, it will make you happy.

Moon Forest Flow




I was delighted to create these pieces for my good friend Carly Slade, and her new business: MOON FOREST FLOW. Working with her was a dream :)

If you're interested in rewilding, women's circles, nature, menstruality, nidra etc, then please take a look at her lovely new website (www.moonforestflow.com) where you will find info about her wild yoga, forest bathing, moon lodges, menstruality workshops and more.

I always love to see the process of other people's drawings, so I thought I'd include a step-by-step of my fourth drawing for Carly. She had lots of lovely ideas for this following piece and I really enjoyed bringing them to life in this tranquil scene:

I know Christmas and New Year is a distant memory by now, but as this is my first blog post of 2018, I just want to wish everyone a very happy year ahead!

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any enquiries :)

Stranger Things 2



Two particular shots from Stranger Things 2 really stuck with me and I've been itching to sketch them! This is one of them. ✏️

Poem


Last summer a very close friend of mine asked me to speak at her wedding. I'm awful at public speaking but was so touched by the request that I faced my fear! I wrote a poem. Last week (a year and a half later) I decided to illustrate it, to give as an extra little gift on her birthday.

The items included might look very random without the words to put them into context, but I decided to remove the poem for the purpose of this blog. I'm happy to share personal things on here, but only my own personal things.

Hope you all have a twisty cellotape, sleepy ferret kind of day! :)



Halloween

Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year!

2017 Comic Cons

Autumn is con season for us! This year we had a fab time at:


Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival, Leeds




And


Thanks very much to everyone who stopped by our tables to pick up our books or have a chat! Thanks also to all the marvellous exhibitors we made friends with this year and great to see old comics chums too. Can't fail to mention all the amazing support staff and organisers at these events, always so friendly and helpful (especially a fan of the complimentary tea and biscuits trolley which seemed to be in constant orbit at LICAF, don't get that kinda service at NYCC!)  :)

Page detail


Hey all! Here's a little snippet of a comic page I was working on last week. The whole book has been set at night so far, so it was great to start working with some different colours!
