There was lots of snow down home for Christmas, I think they were the biggest snowflakes I'd ever seen, but it all got washed away come Stephen's Day.

here's the final characters that I did for the Concern Fastival tv ad. I drew over the sketches & coloured them in Illustrator and then added texture & shading in Photoshop. Each character's colour palette is based on Concern's corporate colours & ties in with all the other print materials that were done for the fast.

This is the Good Luck card I did for my sister a couple of months ago. I'd seen some pics of some really ornate keys and kind of went with an 'education is the key to your future and opens doors for you' theme.
(she did really well by the way!)

My aunty got married recently to a flight enthusiast who has flown all types of light aircraft including a hang glider with an engine which he flew over part of the French Alps! (I didn't know what that looks like so I did one of these instead!)

This is the card I made for my sister's 18th, I wanted to do an intricate interweaving Rob Ryanesque floral border & then I found a ridiculously ornate Victorian font made from vines and flowers that fitted in perfectly, so I used it as the basis for the numbers.

This is the piece I did for the Tinderbox Circus exhibition that was part of the SoGo festival over the May Bank Holiday weekend. I originally wanted to do a sort of Victorian Freak Show type thing like a bearded lady but decided to go with something a lot simpler and graphic with more elegant lines.

My flatmate & best friend Claire moved to France with her boyfriend last week, so this is the farewell card I made for her, full of French clichés & stereotypes! (and a border of croissants!)
I wish them both beaucoup de luck on their voyages fantastiques, I'll miss her lots but at least I'll have une couch to sleep on in Paris maintenant!

This is the layout sketch I've done for my piece for the new Tinderbox exhibition "Picture Show" opening in Filmbase next Monday. I'd originally planned on a trilogy of pieces of 3 of my favourite films - Shaun of the Dead, Amelie & Blade Runner (hence the sketch of Deckard from a while ago) but it's taken way longer than I thought to do just one so the others will have to wait for now!
The final piece is going to be cut out of black, white & red paper so I was drawing it with this in mind, trying to find a way for all the blacks to join up so they'd hold together when cut.

I got a Wacom tablet for Christmas so did a sketch of Carol from Where the Wild Things Are to try it out & see how responsive it is. It's fairly intuitive and accurate so hopefully with a bit of practice it'll become 2nd nature. Going to mess around with adding colour to it & see how it goes.
