End of the year

I am just getting together some new work for my shop - some screenprints - new litho's for younger ones and for the first time, a calendar. It has been such a busy year with life and work I think I will start doing next years calendar in June! Hopefully there will be a big fanfare whe the shop is updated!

Ink Dot show

I am taking part in the ink dot show at the Howies Store, Queens Rd, Bristol from 26-11 to 24-12. Each print in the show will be available to buy as an A2 Gilcee. Here is my artwork...

Hitchhikers Guide

This one was a spot for the Waterstones Magazine, the main illustration will be up soon...

New York Times

This one is about Gender (and the recent story about the athlete Caster Semenya)


I have been doing a few editorial illustrations recently. I like telling a story with pictures. These are for Monocole magazine.

Back in Work

After an extended period of house building - being back and forth and in and out of work I feel I can now focus. New ideas are forming, new projects are being worked on and it's time to start posting again!

Illustrating a story

I am just mid way through illustrating a story for brilliant childrens magazine Anorak. Its a real challenge for me - I always like to tell some kind of story in my work, but I guess my brief is to translate the words into pictures The other challenging aspect is to o figurative work, which, if you haven't noticed, is not something I often do! I guess we'll wait and see how it turns out. This is an island that the characters visit on their travels...

New studio, new work

There is a lot of new (good) things happening at the moment. I have just moved into a new studio (more soon) and have a new agent in the UK (Skinny Dip). I am just working on some work for a spring show in London next week - then its time to get back to the countryside to spring clean...

Postal Strike

A distinct lack of blog postings usually means being very busy... lots of new projects, sorting out a new studio, a new house and new baby takes up a lot of time. This is a bit of an old design which has just had a new life as Howies T-shirt of the week.

The Guardian

I did a couple of tests for The Guardian a little while ago - it didnt go through but it could of been nice - here is one of the first drafts.

The great Welsh clothing company Howies asked me to do an illustration for their new catalogue. This is one of the versions created. Nice to be working with my fellow countryfolk!!
