Field Work

I'm heading down to London tomorrow for the Field Work pop up shop launch (among other things). If you're around Hanbury St (near Brick Lane) on Thursday night you should pop by the opening (and say hello if you spot me). There'll be a selection of my stuff on sale including the 'Dead Landscapes' zine pictured above. When in London I shall also be undoubtedly paying a visit to the new anthropologie store, i'm filled with excitement just thinking about it.

I have been bad at blogging recently. I hereby promise to be better in future. Honest.

Spent today with the lovely Lindsay Grime at Marche Marche (an edinburgh craft fair) selling my wares. You might be able to spot some new stuff in this picture which is now (finally) for sale in my etsy shop. See below to check out what has been added

I'm doing an exhibition at Leeds College of Art next March (ages away I know) and this is the very first drawing I've done for it. Will post more along the way I'm sure.

Don't forget to come by Marche Marche this saturday if you're in Edinburgh. I have a tonne of new stuff on sale, it's going to be ace!

AND if you're in London next weekend you MUST pay a visit to Field Work at 65 Hanbury St (off Brick Lane), a lovely pop up shop featuring work by inumerable talented types. I'll be at the opening on Thursday 28th...if you can make it come and say hi!

Jez got a lovely Horizon Perfekt camera which we took to try out at the beautiful beach at Alnmouth. Here I am looking windswept in panorama. You can see a couple more of his nice long photos on his flickr.

Every time I listen to '100 years' by Dr Dog I always think that the line 'I'll marry you out of common sense' is incredibly lovely. This drawing doesn't really do it justice.

Dress Up

Sometimes I just want to draw girls in nice clothes. For no reason at all.

A Handful Of Treats

Every now and again I pop by the Lizzie Fortunato site to eye up what I would buy if I had a tonne of money. Ideally I'd buy everything but on this visit I think I'd happily plump for this beautiful statement bib necklace.

Absolutely besotted with this image by Melissa Castrillon based on the story of Sarah Henley who, in 1855, attempted to kill herself by jumping from the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. As she fell the large skirt of her dress blew up like a parachute and she glided safely the 225ft to land. I have always loved this story and this image is the perfect treatment for it. I love that nude pink too!

Really impressed with this album cover by Anna Hurley

Peculiar Julia

Today is my Mum's birthday and as part of her present I made her a 24 page children's book (that rhymed). This seemed like an amazing idea at the start but was actually a bit of a huge undertaking (24 pages...silly me!). Anyway she seems pretty happy with it so I thought I'd share a couple of the illustrations. Its about my Mum and her sister when they were young.
Oh and this is the very last page...its my family!

New Stuff!

This is Thisbe. She's beautiful. Only not in this drawing. She's a bit wonky here. Oops!

I've just added two different postcard packs to my etsy shop. The print quality is pretty nice so if you didn't want to send them they could double as mini prints perfect for framing!
