101 Awesome Women Who Changed Our World

I just wanted to pop a post up about the book I have worked on with the lovely folks at Arcturus Publishing. They saw my series of inspirational women I was working on last year and it was a perfect fit for this book.

You can now buy the book on amazon, and it’s gorgeous, full of amazing writing by Julia Adams and illustrations by me. One to keep picking up again and again :)

Inspirational women series.

Hi guys,

So if you follow me in Instagram (@louillustrator) then you'll already know that I've started a weekly series about inspirational women. Every Friday I'll be posting an illustration and a little bit an inspirational lady.
I'm looking at ladies of the past, and hoping to be able to cover modern day ladies too --hit me up if you have any suggestions :)

Today was Amelia Earhart --

Amelia Earhart by Louise Wright

Amelia was born in 1897 and after boarding her first plane in 1920 she fell in love with the idea of flying.
In 1923 Amelia became the 16th woman to receive her pilots license.
Amelia was the first woman ever to fly solo across the Atlantic, and the first person to fly solo across the pacific! ✈✈✈✈✈
Fun facts:
✈Amelia's first plane was bright yellow and she nicknamed it 'The Canary'
✈During her flight across the Pacific Amelia enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate 💛 

Happy weekend everyone, I hope you go into it inspired and wanting a hot chocolate ;)

Branding for Social Media

I just thought I'd pop on and share some fun work with you as most of what I'm working on has to be kept under wraps, but not this time!

This was some illustration work for a lovely client who needed some professional and friendly images to use on social media and across printed materials.
It needed to show a little group of houses, and incorporate the social media icons subtly within it - Can you find all 6?
I adapted the image so it would suit full Facebook and twitter banners as well as sit nicely on postcards. This meant two versions had to be made rather than just cropping.

Such a fun project to work on - more work like this please :)

January Round Up

As this is the last week of January and I'm immersing myself into more new card designs ready to launch at PG Live I thought I'd share with you some of the new illustration work I've created this month.
I've been pushing my development in between commissions and I'm really grateful I've had the chance to do this as my portfolio feels refreshed and ready and for the new year.
Here is a selection of fiction, educational and commercial work :)

I've been a busy bee this month.
I have lots to share (including the upcoming REBRAND of LWD!!) so I'll be posting again very soon! :)
