Toe fluff collaboration

If you haven't seen it already check out Steve Rack's latest collaborative project where he invites you to customise his kooky creation Toe Fluff. Here's my effort where I decided to doodle with in the parameters of the template. Yes I know I broke out it occasionally, but sometimes it's good to break the rules if it helps compositionally. see work from all the other artists who have participated here!

The site features some fantastic postcards by designers and illustrators such as Anthony Burrill, and Ian Stevenson. My 'Eat Love' design is featured. You can send them to your friends for only a pound. This will go towards building new houses and creating better lives for the people if Haiti. Get sending and spread the love!! To Haiti with love.

Craft Guerilla illustration

I was asked by Craft Guerilla to do a birthday themed illustration for their special birthday edition zine. I drew a teddy bear's picnic. You'll be able to buy a copy from their shop when it's available.

Doll Art Exhibition

Above is a selection of images taken at the private view of the 'Doll Art' exhibition I was involved in this month in St Albans. My work comprised of two original Indian ink drawings entitled 'On the outside looking in' and 'Greetings' respectively, and the rather special Giclee print 'Evolution'. Printed using Hahnemuhle German Etch Digital Fine Art paper, and archival inks, which if kept in the right conditions are UV fade resistant for 200 years. Limited edition Giclee prints of 'Evolution' are available at a rather reasonable £80 each. Please email me for postage options.
