work in progress: garden centre



This image is still in progress and will eventually be one part of a triptych. It is A1 in size, the main reason I decided to try working large scale is because I find it interesting how people react to large scale work. I wonder if the same image would get the same reaction if it was of modest size. However working at this scale does allow greater detail.

Inc Magazine





I have some work in Inc magazine which brings spoken word and illustration together. I illustrated a poem by Toby De Angeli. Some excellent work by many more great illustrators and poets in the magazine. If you would like to purchase one for yourself you can do so from the Inc magazine site or from various shops around London and one in Glasgow which are listed on there.

Secret 7"





Two of my covers for Secret 7" , a project combining music and art for designers in aid of teenage cancer trust. You can go and see my covers along with 698 other unique seven-inch sleeves inspired by tracks from The Cure, Florence + The Machine, Bombay Bicycle Club, CSS, DJ Shadow, Noah & The Whale and Ben Howard, at the Idea Generation gallery in Shoreditch, London from the 18th April. If you would like to get one for yourself then you can do that on saturday 21st April. The exhibition has an added air of mystery as no-one will know who designed each sleeve, or which of our seven tracks is housed inside. Which is why I haven't said which artists my covers belong to, but you can guess!

Sketchbook: faces





Two little Liver birds


I did this illustration based on Liverpool a while ago. The pair of Liver birds watch over the city, thought to be a male and female (may have to do another version!) There are many stories about the pair, one being that the female looks out to sea, watching over the men at sea. Whilst the male watches the city, protecting the families of the men at sea. Other elements were included such as the tall ships that visit, and Antony Gormley's Another place which comprises of 100 iron man statues looking out to sea.

Faces exhibition



I have recently started a masters degree (part time) at Camberwell College of Arts. This work was part of a show based on facial expressions, the larger work was on the theme generic. I will scan in a selection of the faces soon.

Lobstering about


One of my friends ate a lobster for her birthday and I started drawing them to make her feel guilty. Not that i'm a vegetarian, although I am often mistaken for one. So now it has turned into a big project, this is one of the first images before and after cooking. Also, you may notice that these are the same three ladies as in the cake pops illustration. They were intended for the lobsters, the other just happened to crop up in between. I don't know which look they suit more. Though I do like that underneath the lobster suits they have a body and are not just a floating head!
