Hand Made - Poster



Just finished this poster design for an upcoming art and craft fair in Leeds called Handmade... (they have a Facebook page here)
May 12th, 12 noon - 4pm at Wharf Chambers, Leeds.

Trying out some new graphic shapes and curves inspired by bobbins, yarn-balls and stationary. All hand-drawn on my computer too. I like the grumpy bobbin the most.

To Kill A Mockingbird



Here's an illustration I produced for Mat Pringle's 'The Book One' zine.

Contributors were asked to produce an illustration inspired by their favourite novel. I chose 'To Kill a Mockingbird' and illustrated the chapter in which Scout Finch gets lost on a dark night in her ham costume. Some amazing artists involved, too.

Delighted that this was chosen to be used as the cover illustration, and I designed the back cover too. I'll post some photos of the zine when my copy arrives!

Make It, Read It

This weekend Make It Mag was launched! Run by a crew of infinitely cool and stylish folks, it's an online arts magazine with content and design to woo over.

I have a feature interview in this issue's 'Comics' section... A very nicely designed one at that!

Read it here.

Walkin' Dawg

I drew a nice dog on an order envelope today, and this afternoon I made an animated loop of him walking... His image was that powerful to me.

Photobucket

Good to be animating again, more GIFs soon!

Snippet


Here's a little peek at some illustration hot off the press.

Can't show it all just yet... But it's magical and Ukrainian.

Lino, You Know



I've been trying my (now slightly injured) hand at lino-cut printing this week. A few stolen minutes here and there and a few minor scrapes later, I have a new edition of mini-prints!

They're printed on 300gsm off-white recycled card stock, with water-based printing inks. Each comes in an edition of 3 only.
They were lots of fun to do, so I've decided to give them away for free when you make a purchase from my online shop!

Have a fun and creative weekend!
