AOI Contracts Masterclass 22nd November



I’m really excited to be sharing my experience and knowledge of working with contracts at the AOI Contracts Masterclass next month .  As a long standing member I’ve gained a huge amount of confidence and support through the pricing and contract advice given to me by the AOI so it seems fitting that I can impart some do’s and don’ts as an illustrator. If you’re a member you can get discounted entry to this and many other amazing online and live events. Go HERE to find out more

The AOI have played such an integral role in my business growth I couldn’t recommend being a member more.


Providing an accessible insight into contracts, this master class will offer a general overview of contracts before focusing on motion contracts more specifically.

IP Lawyer Robert Lands, will take a look at illustration contracts in depth.  Areas covered will include the clauses that most often trip people up, the essential clauses that should be included to ensure the contract is fair and recent trends.

Media Agent Matthew Dench will then take a closer look at media contracts. With illustration increasingly becoming a cross-industry discipline, Matthew will cover the ins and outs of these often weighty and financially heavy contracts.

Lastly, we will have a word from long standing AOI member Miss Led who will give the illustrator’s perspective on negotiating and standing fast using examples from her past.

Practical examples will be drawn from publishing, TV, film and editorial and there will be ample time for Q&A with the speakers.
This session would suit agents and illustrators who are currently, or are hoping to work across a range of commissioning areas, providing concrete skills as well as building confidence.

This session is perfect for Illustrators and Agents alike, and we recommend to get your ticket now.

Tuesday 22nd November
2.00pm – 5.00pm
Tickets: £25 for Members (£40 for Non-Members). Get your ticket here!

Miss Led Live Painting with Escoda Brushes Barcelona

– Miss Led Live Painting with Escoda Brushes –

I was lucky to be travelling again last week! This trip took me back to Spain to the beautiful city of Barcelona. My main aim being to meet and discuss a very exciting collaboration with the wonderful team at Escoda Brushes

After being in talks for some time, we have been very excited about finally collaborating on a project together.

So on a very typically sunny morning, a roof terrace over looking the most majestic  Sagrada Famalia was cleared and prepared as my studio for a few hours. Here with the view across the incredible city I created a new painting using a variety of Escoda hand made brushes and my very trusty paints.

I’ll be publishing more related images next week as part of a mini Instagram Take Over at Escoda IG headquarters. Please keep an eye out as the social posts will be a lead up to a short video of the live painting

Miss Led Pop Up Solo Show and Product Launch Event, Hong Kong

I can’t believe we were in Hong Kong just over a month ago! I can safely say, that my first visit to the city was a truly incredible one. When Miss Led teamed up with the, two year old accessory brand, THE DOT, we didn’t imagine the collaboration and pop-up shop look so fabulous and to create such excitement. I knew as soon as arriving there, that I was in good hands.

Over my 3 days at PMQ we had quite a blast. From an incredible press pre-view launch party with pink champagne and canapés, to live painting, a solo show of new digital works, a day full of workshops and a whole host of introductions from some wonderful artists, bloggers and fans of the work.

And the nine day introduction to Hong Kong was over in a flash. After the successes of the products, the solo show, sell-out workshops, and sale of my live painting we’ve agreed to do it all again next year.

Here’s a visual round-up of some of the fun that was had.
