It’s been a while…

So it’s been a little while since I last posted… I have been taking a much needed two week break in Croatia, but back on home turf and art-wise, lots has been happening, some of which I can disclose now! I am illustrating a new book from the marvellous Joanna Grochowicz who has written a smashing account of Robert Scott’s tragic journey to the south pole entitled ‘Into The White’ for older children with Allen and Unwin. I have also been selected as one of six UK based artists to spend one month in the Ukraine as an artist in residence. I will be in residence at the artist Alevtina Kakhidze studio in the village of Muzychi for the whole of September – very exciting indeed. Expect plenty of posts from me! And more exciting news as and when I can reveal!

In the meantime – here’s a little drawing from my sketchbook. Dubrovnik Airport from above:



New drawings in the shop!


Stan and Nan is graphic novel of the month in the Observer!


It was also comic of the week over at Broken Frontier. They said some lovely things including:

“[Stan and Nan is] a beautifully thoughtful piece of storytelling brought to life with a distinctive visual honesty, this is a fine addition to the Cape comics library and one that marks the emergence of a most promising new voice to watch out for on the UK scene.”

Dreaming of summer

I’ve been taking a little bit of time out since completing the wall art for Stoke hospital, working away at my first draft for my new book, drawing, playing with my band and dreaming of summer. I can’t wait to be able to go out running in shorts and a tee again…


Installing artwork at Royal Stoke hospital

Yesterday I spent the day installing two large scale wall vinyls at the Royal Stoke hospital. The local paper, The Sentinel came along and wrote a few words about the project. You can have a read here
