A Quiet Tide

Sometimes grainy iphone photos can look like paintings!

Apologies for the quiet blogging. A few things to update - my show at the Framing Workshop is now over, thanks to all who stopped by and let me know what they thought of it ! For those who didn't make it, four of my portraits are still for sale at Pumice Cafe and will be up there for the next month or so. I have recently finished a whole bunch of illustrations for a greeting card company which I will hopefully be able to show you soon. Much more in the pipeline but unfortunately cant share just yet.

The opening of my exhibition 'The Ship, The Yeti and All That Came After' kicked off last friday. Thanks to all of the folks how came out for it! I really appreciate the support! It was great to meet so many new people and get feedback on the works I had made. Thanks too to The Framing Workshop for hosting us. The show is open till the 2nd of June so if you missed fridays opening there is plenty of time to pop by and see it. Let me know what you think.

A few Iphone pics of the process behind my current exhibition showing at The Framing Workshop till the 2nd June.

You may notice i have had a re-shuffle of things on my website. The curious side of me loves it when others show their process and sketchbooks so I've created a page for my own Here. Ill be adding more to it as I get pages scanned.  Another new page titled 'Projects' features design projects, exhibitions and collaborations and anything else that takes my fancy.. so stay tuned for more on this page. And finally a Links page - which features links to some of the very talented friends I know and clients I have collaborated with.

'The Ship, The Yeti and All That Came After' opens tonight, 120 Silverdale Road, 5.30-7pm - love to see you there!
