The Joyful Bewilderment’ showcases the work of a group of like minded image-makers. This exhibition can be seen as an expression of these artists compulsion to create. Fundamentally, the artists in the show all share an essential motivation – to explore the possibilities of enhancing everyday life by making magic from the mundane. The works in the show utilise modest and direct means – including works in pencil, paint and ink along with photographic works which record and celebrate everyday happenstances.
Private View 2 October from 7 until 12, with live musical accompaniment from Einstellung

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...

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!

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!!

I did some illustrations for this story for the latest edition of Anorak magazine for kids. It's about a sock who loses his partner and then gets turned into a sock Monkey. I used a sock monkey made for Cherry by Hazel Nicholls, check out her blog.

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...
