Collaboration Nation

Collaboration Nation

I was recently asked to get involved in the wonderful 'Collaboration Nation' project. "Hell yes!" I cried, and here's a preview of my stage one drawing. I'm off to post this to KIWIE in Latvia later today.

For those unfamiliar with Collab Nation, essentially it's a series of worldwide, visual chain latters! The project starts with an artist drawing a picture on an A3 piece of paper, then arrangements are made for it to be posted to 3 more artists to be added to, before being returned to the origi..

T-shirt for Octomuffin

T-shirt for Octomuffin

So, I was asked by the lovely guys at Octomuffin if I would like to do them a tee design. Of course I said yes, and here's a little sneak preview of it!

It's an idea I've had on the back burner for a while and I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to get it out of my head and on to some apparel. I don't think it's going to be exclusively for t shirts either!

Mail Me Art: Short and Sweet

I've been a bit quiet with updates recently; lots of work on and a new born baby has been keeping me busy! Anyway, the first update for today is about the 'Mail Me Art' project I'm involved in. My copy of the book arrived last week, wow! It's a cracking item and, I think, a must for any illustration fans; it sits proudly along side some classics on my shelf already!

The first exhibition of all the works was last weekend at the Framers Gallery in London, and this it's at the Factoryroad Gallery in..

The Surface Gallery's 'Street Art Open 2013' opened for two weeks last night.

Whippets Chasing Rabbits @ Switch Studios

Last week I was part of a cracking exhibition at Switch Studios in Nottingham. 'Whippets Chasing Rabbits' was a one off group show featuring some brilliant work from local and national graffiti artists, street artists, writers and illustrators. The Shrunken Heads have put on some really great events down at Switch over the years, and this was another one to add to the list.
