My new shop will be up and running this summer for anyone interested in purchasing A4 Signed mounted prints, greeting cards and postcards.
I am currently working on a new series of work ...I have been very excited to be able to express my love of travelling onto this current special custom commission (a work in progress)...AMSTERDAM and I will be doing a series of other famous cities and their landmarks in my illustrative quirky style in 2017.
I have been very fortunate to have visited such amazing cities around the world, both near and far! I have LOVED working with bolder illustrative lines of each distinguished landmark and the architectural designs with their own quirky details. A POP of colour reflects my personality and expresses my style onto each painting I create. Here is a detail of 'QUIRKY AMSTERDAM'. #quirkycityscapes #artist #illustrator #ashebickillustrations #colourmadness #architecturaldesigns #quirkydetails #workinprogress
Finally finished and introducing: "The Northern Sights" (2016) [A1 framed] #ashebickillustrations #artist #illustrator #inks #watercolours #giantscauseway #ropebridge #thedarkhedges🌳 #thesightsofnorthernireland

"Toadstool Land" is part of a fantastical land created by myself! I wanted toadstools as my main motif. They automatically transform into little houses for my Fantastical Creatures. 'Ashland storybook series' is a subject I wish to continue to do in my art practice along with my illustrated animal characters I so enjoy painting! AB
Working on my own illustrated children's stories. Experimenting with the focal animal figure using colourful ink and watercolours. Black pen was used for the juxtaposed labyrinth imagery from my imagination, a lot of fun! AB
NEW Up-cycled Vintage Frames will be available in all sizes and jolly colours, to make each animal commission a little bit special and unique! Feel free to get in contact with me, I take any commissions in any animal in my style!
