Excited to say I will be taking part in Before, I Could Draw, an exhibition where a group of illustrators reinterpret childhood drawings.
The first image is by me Age 5 or 6, the second Age 22 and 3/4. I'm not sure what my six year old mind was thinking, or what this character is supposed to be (some kind of camp monkey?) but he is incredibly sassy. I had a more literal approach to reinterpretating it, as I knew I couldn't beat that original pose. It was fun to try and recreate the shapes and lines I made with my drawing back then. Sometimes we forget to just have fun when we draw and not worry about the final outcome.
The launch night for the exhibition is the 29th of November and with be held at 2022 NQ. It runs till the 7th of December. Click "attending" on the facebook event here!
Recently I helped out a friend of mine by creating an original deer drawing to be included in flyers for his band, Coroner For The Police. Give em a listen. They have an upcoming gig on Dec 3rd at Factory, where you can pick these flyers up for their Dec 12th gig at Academy! It was fun to work on this little project. :)

I have finally finished my latest uni project! The image above depicts houses of famous pioneers in their field, some of which you may not have expected to own a residency in London. It includes plaques, an address and method of transport to visit the existing houses. I'm also entering this into the serco prize for illustration, fingers crossed!
Some details from the piece.

Saturday the 12th of October was the 6th Manchester Print Fair at 2022 NQ. I shared a stall with Jade Muatt-Dodd and a very fun day was had! We met some lovely people and sold quite well considering it was our first ever print fair. Will definitely be getting a table for the next one in April!
Just an example of some products I have been making to sell at print fairs lately, from lino printed notebooks to screen printed tote bags. I will put whatever stock I have left up on etsy after the Manchester Artists Book Fair, which is this Friday and Saturday! Come on down and say hello!
