A recommendation.

My new favourite blog is Curious Pages run by the incredible Lane Smith (author of one of my favourite children's books ever 'the Happy Hocky Family'). The blog collates bizarre, unsuitable and just plain unsettling Children's books and hilariously explains what makes them so brilliant. Well worth a moment of your time.

Paper Tintypes

I've been working on stuff for the exhibition in Bristol next month and another in Leeds in March. These images are for the Leeds show called 'The Men Who Built Magnitogorsk'. These drawings are of old russian tintype photographs. The rest are on my flickr.


Finally feeling properly festive after a lovely Christmas meal with friend the other night. In two days Jez and I are flying home to South Devon (Exeter and Plymouth respectively) to spend Christmas with our families. Which I, for one, am very excited about. In the meantime I have some work to finish (more on that later), presents to wrap and packing to do! Here are some wintery looking things for a very cold day! (felt snowflake decoration by Donna Wilson)

Love this beautiful pattern by Alisha Henson.

I designed the Logo and scribblings for this rather fancy new online boutique. Be sure to stop by if you're in the UK and craving some international independent labels like Built By Wendy and Ivana Helsinki.

Eeek! Filler post!

I really want to post up some new work but I'm trying hard to keep it all under wraps for the exhibition in January (I hate going to shows and seeing a tonne of work I've seen plastered all over the internet for months!) so in the meantime here are a couple of 'What I Wore Today' drawings I knocked up for my own entertainment.

Land & Sky among other things.

Do you live in/near Bristol? Perhaps you fancy a Bristol based holiday in say...January/Febuary? If so please please please come by the Here Gallery between 22nd Jan-27th Feb to see an exhibition by myself and the marvellously talented Christopher Bettig. It's called Land & Sky (as the poster says) and will feature a load of new work from the pair of us (and maybe a few older bits too) and there'll hopefully be plenty to buy too! I'm very very excited.

If you in the US/Asia/Eastern Europe you have until tomorrow to order stuff from my shop in time for Christmas! If you're in the UK/Central Europe you have until the 16th as after that I shall be heading south for a family Christmas. I added a couple of new cards last night and there's the usual collection of prints and zines and some bags left too so best get shopping!

P.S thanks to anyone who came by Magpie Market on Sunday, especially to the rather enthusiastic girls from 1st Year at brightened up our afternoon!

The Strangest Summer Fete

This is an image for my editorial portfolio that I did a couple of weeks back. Its about strange British events...cheese rolling, yorkshire pudding boats, poo sticks and bog snorkelling to name but a few.

Oh Deer!

This rather fine print by the talented Ms Keniger would make a rather wonderful christmas present no? A red deer? Can't get more festive than that!
