Websites and Secrets

This week, apart from pulling together some imagery ready to  start screen-printing with I created three exclusive illustrations for the Royal College of Art's Secret Postcard exhibition coming up in March!

Always exciting to have my work featured alongside top artists! It is a secret, so I'm not going to reveal the illustrations until they have opened the exhibition....but this image I made on a trip to New York once might give you some clues as to the theme I used this year...

And also, slightly un-work related, I have signed myself up to a bike ride from London for the arts organisation I work for. It's definitely inspired me to draw more bicycles next week! You can find out more here and so I thought today this illustration might also be apt:

I saw a great band called Local Natives last night and they have also inspired me to create some illustrations of mask designs I'll be making over the next couple of weeks.

Aside from tying up a few commissions of design work I've started to get to grips with my own website design which is hopefully going to be a clean, smart place filled with illustrations made by me! More on this next week and in the mean time have a happy Friday!

Large update, studio move and George Eliot Illustrations

Since last October a big upheaval of my freelance work has occurred (in a good way!)

A few things since my duo show in Crouch End that ended in December:

  • I gave an 'Artist's Talk' at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery in November
  • I delivered some illustration workshops to Canonbury School in Islington for House of Illustration
  • My solo exhibition 'From Home to Homes Afar' at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery finished in the first week of January
  • I've been working on some projects involving more design work...more to follow soon!
  • I was given a lovely little commission from a playwriter developing a new play and an accompanying series of events around Warwickshire. The play is based on the writer George's a sneak preview of one of the illustrations I created for the invites! Please visit the writer Vanessa Oakes' blog to find out more about the project.

Finally I moved in to Miller's Junction this month to hopefully start screen printing more images using the Print Club London facilities next this space and in the mean time, have a good week all!
