The Making of...

I completed a day at The Illustration Gallery, in Stroud last Friday as part of their current exhibition. The idea was that each artist would create the artwork in the gallery during the day and it would be hung at the end of that day. The exhibition is growing week by week as each artists adds their work. Here are some images from the day before (screenprinting my basic design) and some of work in progress. More printing pictures can be found on the workshop blog...

Busy, Busy, Busy...

Things have been a bit manic over the last few months, with lots still going on. I a taking part in a few exhibitions and books in the next few months and a few other projects that are on-going. For now here are a few of the illustrations I did for French hypermarket Monoprix, which unfortunately doesn't look like it will be going out after all, but I guess that's what happens sometimes!

This one made it!

This is the one that ended up on Cherry's wall!

The one that didnt make it...

I am just putting together Cherry's new A-Z in a big frame but there is a blank space where the last one was(bad dad!). So I thought I would put an interim piece up while I finish it.She is crazy about birds at the moment, so I reckoned a bird picture would be good... but then decided this one was too dark!!

New A-Z

A while ago I made an A-Z poster for my little one, Cherry, before she was born. She's just turned 1 year old so I though I would recreate the artwork with some new images, perhaps more recognisable to her. Here are the first three letters...


My design studio, New Future Graphic, are currently working with a great organization called We Are What We Do on a new book. I am making a few new images for the book, this is a test image that was made a while ago.

The Workshop

We have been in development of a new studio for some time now - and we are in the closing stages of making it a reality. The new Workshop will also incorporate Get Casual - a screen-printing service to the creative industry. So we hope it will lead to more prints for sale - and even more collaborations with friends. Check out the new blog for news...
