It’s been a busy half a year, full of new experience and successes. I’ve also put together a website of selected work so navigation is a less stressful on the eyes! That can be found here! That means that I can really use this space to show more work in progress. I’ve been doing some screen printing experiments lately and here’s a sneak peak of what’s to come…
Over the last few days I’ve been doing some proper muscle training in the way of moving some heavy hardwood doors and sawing bench legs to make some lovely furniture for our little stamp workshop down in Deptford. It’s for all ages an we’re open again for one more day this Wednesday, when the lovely markets will open too. We’ll be open 11-6. (Utrophia, 120 Deptford High St London SE8 4QD… one minute walk from Deptford station). A few more details on the event here!
On Friday I’ll also be selling some prints and things at a pop up shop with a few chums down in Deptford. For other details and info on the other illustrators clickie on the Linkie!

Illustrations showing how electricity has been used to enhance our senses of the world around us. Made using light cast from natural sunlight and ink.

A part of an ongoing project; originally I was researching our water consumption through the food we eat and the products we buy (virtual water) but I soon discovered that every sustainability issue we have is interlinked. These two illustrations about land grabbing in Africa and the people involved.

Here’s something I digged up from the archive, I did these at an internship which took place some time ago which involved designing pattern to a trend (very bright clashing coloured florals) that would be used on teacups, plates, cushions, lamps.. These were some of the earlier rejected designs because the inky – watery quality wasn’t what they were after. It was fun and frustrating all at the same time and I loved working with the creative director which led me to experimenting outside of my usual work patterns. The one below is my favourite!

Illustrations from earlier this year based on the folk tale Bearskin. The story exists in quite a few different cultures, but what they all have in common is a man wearing a bearskin and not washing or shaving for many years (which was actually the reason why I chose the story!) These were some of the more successful paintings done to test out the mood and style of the illustrations. These lead on to the paintings of the nine skin walkers posted earlier.
