A New Website!

Lots of new things have been happening recently.  I am currently moving house ( and looking forward to getting that brand new studio space! There are already some commissions waiting for the move, which is rather exciting.  

Recently I have been working on personalised tattoos and school resource packs for the beginning of the 2013 academic year.  Some workshops are also being planned to help sell the product.

But for now, you can keep up with my works on many different sites including Deviant Art, Blogger, Twitter, BeHance, Facebook and now my very own website! If all goes well then there will be many upgrades in the future :)

Please show support and visit my new page, all critiques and suggestions are very welcome!

Tattoo Design

Well, here's something I never thought I would get the opportunity to do! Some people want my designs permanently tattoed onto their bodies! Exciting!
 The above design was not originally created for tattooing purposes, and I didn't even know it was being done! Better pictures will follow
This is the first tattoo I have designed based on the phrase 'Lest we Forget', with poppies added for extra emphasis

An Anecdotal Request

 The author of the book 'The anecdotal drama teen' approached me the other day and asked me to create both a promotional poster and bookmark to raise awareness of her story.   These are the products I ended up creating.  Enjoy!

Secret London: Revised

Some adjustments have been made to the colouring and contrast :)

I have also come across a way to add an old fashioned dotting effect to my work, so obviously I got really excited and just had to use it!

London: A Fairy Tale revised

Revised London : A Fairy Tale (Merzbox Project)

I wasn't happy with how dull the last piece turned out and I could not think of what to do, so I decided to scrap and start pretty much from scrap.  The text and woman are the same, but the background is completely different.

I was inspired y an old book of London maps that I happened across in a second hand book store and instantly fell in love with.

Any suggestions?

Hey, here is a revised version of my piece for the Aesop tale of the milk maid and her pail.  I thought the last one had way too much text and distracted from the actual image.  So I decided to thin it down and try to make it more pleasant to view.  thoughts?

The Princess

Here is a painting I produced as a commission for my little sister :) It is based on a black and white piece I produced last year ( with a few new tweaks!)

The Anecdotal Drama Teen

This is a design I produced for a book cover (which is now all published which is exciting!) It was rather difficult to hide how excitable I was when I was found sitting at the door to my flat watching the post box.  Hope you guys like!

This is the Facebook group :http://www.facebook.com/groups/260337220732172/

and the book can be purchased from this site: http://www.authorhouse.co.uk/


The Fairy Tale of Happiness Book











Here are some pictures of my handmade book 'The Fairy Tale of Happiness' Based on the novel by Kurt Schwitters.

The book has been made from scratch by stitching, spray mounting and glue gunning it together.  This is the second version of my book as the first has been sent to London as an entry for the Macmillan Award.  This
version however has been created for my degree show which opens up next month.

I intend to carry on with its production after I have finished at university, but the book so far has a full covered colour and 5 coloured spreads, the rest being detailed pen drawings.

Pure enjoyment

This is just a random thing i did for the fun of it! It is based on the Aesop fable of the milk maid who spilt the milk because she was too busy thinking of what she would do with the money she could sell her wares for.  Don't count your chickens before they are hatched! May still put it in the degree show though... and thoughts or sugestions?
