Cover image for Corel Painter Essentials 5


My name’s Lawrence. I’m a freelance Illustrator based in the UK. I was recently asked to both beta-test and create the cover image for Corel’s new awesome painting package Painter Essentials 5. It’s the small brother to their greatly powerful Painter 2015 which I also beta-tested. Both of these are great and this year is the first time I had used either. I have to say that they will certainly change the way I paint! I know this is sounding a bit like an ad’ for Corel but I can’t praise these guys highly enough for their hard work.

Donough O’ Malley’s online print shop


I’ve just set up an online print shop to make it easier for all the enquiries I’ve had recently about purchasing some of my prints. The ever popular ‘Giselle’ is available here, as is also the limited edition screen print for Artcrank. So swing on by and sort out all your Christmas shopping in one place!

Yo Illo Illustrators’ Christmas Party (London)


It’s almost Christmas, and that means hearing all about friends’ and partners’ office parties, while you’re left behind at the drawing board, sipping a lonely glass of mulled wine. But no longer! This year, Yo Illo (the monthly illustration meetup group) is coming to the rescue with the Illustrators’ Christmas Party, a night of music, drinking and festivities with fellow creatives!


Join them on Wednesday, 10th December at the Exmouth Market Church Hall near Clerkenwell. The Yo Illo team are very excited that the Dakota Jim Band will be providing entertainment for the evening with a selection of jazz and folk numbers and classic Christmas tunes, and a choice of wines and local beers and spirits will be on offer to help you get into the Yuletide spirit.

In addition to this, Depop will generously provide a number of free bottles of beer to help get the night off to a great start! (Get there early to avoid missing out!)

So, come along and show off your favourite festive jumper, put on your dancing shoes, and enjoy a night with fellow illustrators!
