Jealous Gallery



I was invited by pal & fellow illustrator Jess Wilson, to contribute a piece of work to the Jealous Needs You exhibition, for Jealous Gallery.

This is a 50x50cm 3-colour screenprint in an edition of 36, and will be available to buy from the exhibition opening next month at Jealous Gallery, and through their website. Especially for Christmas, it also features a metallic gold ink.

This print is part of an on-going body of drawings which explore ideas about growth in the natural world.

You can find Jealous Gallery at 53 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, EC2A 3PT in East London and 27 Park Road N8 8TE in Crouch End, North London.

Brain Magazine (Japan)



I was invited by Brain Magazine in Japan to produce a cover for their next issue, under the theme of 'happy creation'; this was the perfect opportunity for me to explore my love of process & image making in a way much of my commissioned work rarely allows for; thanks Brain! I'll post a picture of the magazine once it arrives in my studio.

Pien-Saimaa for illustration for Destia Magazine



This is another commission from Dialogi in Finland for the Finnish infrastructure customer magazine, Destia. The illustration goes with a feature on the Piem-Saimaa water pump which was installed to make the water in the lake much cleaner than it had been in the past, creating new habitats for wildlife and water sports. It is the second illustration I have done in this series - the last was for the Port of Oulu.

35mm



A year ago, Steve and I decided to say a fond farewell to our apartment in East London's Hackney and move 200 miles South West to Devon. We bought a house from a couple whose family had lived in it since 1895 and set about de-chintzing, tearing down walls, putting up new ones and creating a new home. It has been a brilliant, tough, sometimes extreme & excellent adventure which has in some ways transformed the way we live. When we're not in London or elsewhere, we now spend a lot of our time outdoors, exploring, hiking, swimming and sharing it all with friends - and I have been documenting the time on my 35mm camera - here are some snapshots of life beside the sea.

The Family Project

These are some test spreads from a book project I pitched on a few months ago, which unfortunately went in a different direction. Of course these were just first drafts, but it was great to work on something so loose & playful.

Its All About The River | Film Festival 12 Sep - 12 October 2014



http://www.itsallabouttheriver.org.uk/

This autumn, the banks of Devon's River Tamar will play host to a major film festival combining epic cinema, historical archive and documentary film and premiering specially commissioned films by international artists. With each film linked to a river theme, the festival celebrates the history and explores a future use of the River Tamar. Opening in Calstock with a spectacular outdoor screening, the film festival flows downriver stopping at Gunnislake, Bere Alston, Cargreen, Saltash, Barne Barton, Devonport and Plymouth.

Being staged with funding from Arts Council England, the British Film Institute Film Festival Fund, the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, the Heritage Lottery Fund, FEAST, the festival aims to celebrate and revitalise cultural spaces and communities and raise new questions about the river’s potential as an economic and cultural force in the 21st Century.

The It’s All About the River film festival is part of the River Tamar Project: a major cultural programme, connecting local and international communities with the river. In partnership with Plymouth University.
