Did a little light sketching this evening, without hope or agenda, and just sat down to see what happened. Played around a bit with putting watercolour down and then sketching loosely on top of it, and also had a look at hand drawing some typeface. What I ended up with were a series of little […]
The internet is an incredible place. It brings people together, connects nations, but there’s some weird stuff out there. Here’s some screen grabs that I’ve collected that really make me giggle. Thanks Bing. What the hell is going on here? Wrong line. HOW HARD CAN IT BE? And how many reporters meet state standards, exactly? […]

Those designs are now part of Lush (Fresh Handmade Cosmetics) Summer Footcare Promotion to re-FRESH your feet with products containing fresh ingredients.

I felt I wasn’t really getting anywhere or doing anything to be proud […]
A few pencil, watercolour, and ink sketches of me holding a cut orange. Still going through a bit of a fruit phrase I think!!
Today I went to the much talked and tweeted about Dalston House by Leandro Erlich and hosted by the Barbican. It’s free, it’s about to be everyone’s summer facebook cover photo, and it is a piece which could inspire the most cynical of Londoners to crack a smile. It is so much fun. No, really, […]
