Out of the Box


Here's a couple of pics of my humble contribution to the excellent 'Out of the Box' exhibition (hosted by Ink Spot Press) of box art, that finished in Brighton last week. I understand that the show will be touring to an awesome venue in the Big Smoke sometime in August. I'll keep you posted. 

I really enjoyed making this box, it was nice to try something different. It was fun to explore sculptural stuff again.

The piece is called 'Liar' and the brass plate reads, "He's got a nice smile, but he's such a liar."

As Promised...

In my last post I promised that I'd pop some pictures of the various exhibitions I've been involved with lately, here's the first one.

I made these images whilst on a residency in Marrakesh in September 2010. There are a few more drawings in this group, they've all been hanging around the studio for a while now. To be honest I've been uncertain what to do with them. Seeing them in an exhibition context for the first time since they where shown in Morocco has, in a weird way, made them make sense again.

Sample Something New


Here's a sneeky peek of a page from the first chapter of the book I've been working on for a while now:

And just a quick reminder from those in the Brighton area that my work can be seen up close and personal at two exhibitions in the Brighton Festival:


Photo's of these honourable public exhibitions of Art will follow shortly. Have a good weekend.

Off the Hook and Out of the Box

Hallo there,

I'm sorry for the lack of posting of late, things have been busy and I've let it all slip on this front but you have my word I'll be more on game from now on.

Here's a selection of some of the stuff I've been up too:

I'm one of a whole group of exciting artists that are taking part in the Brighton based exhibition 'Out of the Box'.  The show is being curated and hosted by the people at Ink Spot Press and includes box art by artist such as Amy Douglas, John Dilnot, and Hannah Chater, as well as a humble offering from me. I'll post some pics up here in the next couple of Days.

I run screen-printing workshops at Ink Spot, a really wonderful small press and well worth checking out if you're in the Brighton area and fancy learning some inky skills, here's their webpage: Ink Spot. The next workshop is due to happen this weekend, there are still some places available so if you're interested come along, it's good wholesome fun.

I also have a few paintings at an open house on Quebec Street for Brighton's May festival.

 This show is always well worth checking out (the tea and cake an added bonus), with wide range of great artists contributing work. Here's some more info: Quebec St.

My last post was a note about the talk I did at Laydeez Do Comics in London town. I had a really great time, the crowd was warm and welcoming, I highly recommend popping along to one of the meetings if you have an interest in Comics, Art or Literature. Here's a pic of me in Action (follow the link to Laydeez blog for a full write up and info on the other contributors, Laydeez Do Comics).

As I've said I promise to stick some pictures of all these things up soon, in the meantime have a great rest of the week and stay dry (boo to the British weather!)

Bigger news is in the pipe line, so stay tuned...
