A Drawing-a-Day: An Adventure in Illustration!


Artist and illustrator Peter Clayton has been for the past few months embarking on an adventure in illustration with a drawing-a-day project.

Next week will mark the ventures centenary and with what started off as a side-project has since become a little daily obsession. With no real brief or theme the pieces have become a creative stage with which Peter can vent ideas, opinions and personality and also conjure up loveable and playful characters.

Meditation 101: A Beginner’s Guide

Are you new to meditation, and interested in finding out how to start a practice? We’ll walk you through the basics!

This is an animation I’ve been working on for Happify – a company that creates science-based activities and games that help you lead a more fulfilling life.

As with all of my work, this animation was created by drawing pen on paper. Each illustration was scanned, cleaned and coloured in Photoshop and then composited in After Effects.

It was a fun little project. I’ve been commissioned to create five animations for Happify – three which will be launched publicly so I’ll update you with the others when they’re ready!
