Barn Owl

I had to show you this chap I recently created, I think he's rather marvelous! He is a sneak preview what you're likely to see at my collaborative exhibition due to happen in the new year with fellow illustrator and doodler Amy Blackwell.

Back at Goldsmiths

I've now started teaching a five week Illustration course at Goldsmiths. Here's a photo from my first day back on a chilly winter morning. Brrrrr!

Work selected for Images 34!

Yay! I have just found out that my work has been selected for the AOI's Images 34!
The illustration that made it was "Bird Talk" a piece created earlier in the year for I Dress Myself. The work will feature in the illustration annual which will be published next year.
My photo
Inspired by Circuses, Victoriana, and Surrealism I create collage’s combining the past and present through a mixture of found imagery, illustration, photography and drawing. Working with collage and my trusted photocopier I create all of my work by hand, frequenting second hand shops, car boot sales and markets to build up my ever growing archive of second hand books, magazines, photographs and postcards. I always create my work by hand, only using a computer for layout at final stages. I like my illustration to have a certain tangibility, a quality that cannot be captured by digital means alone, even if that is as small as a blob of ink or a smudge on a photocopy.
