Here is some of the CD Artwork I designed for a Tuba Quartet, who are aptly named YouTuba. It includes songs from Carnival Of The Animals, The Jungle Book and Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. Check out their website and buy their album here: http://www.youtuba.org/

I've had the flyer done for my exhibition in Here and Now Gallery that will be on display throughout March. The exhibition is named, If In Doubt, Make Tea. Although I'm not a drinker of tea myself, I love the quintessentially British ritual of tea drinking.

This year's Winter issue of Anorak has three double page spreads of my work. The illustrations accompany a short story by Sam Royle about a girl who decides she wants to become a quizmaster. So get your festive behinds down to somewhere like Borders or W H Smiths and have a little look.
This was actually complete a long time ago but I've only just found my camera. This is 'Illustrated Quotes and Sayings 4', a promotional book for BA(Hons) Illustration at University College Falmouth and the students who graduated in June of 2009.

I finished my new kids book a little while ago...It's a story that follows two evil sister witches as they quarrel with each other and sabotage each other's lives.
Got another Guardian job, which was published a few weeks ago now...was going to photograph the magazine but I can't find a camera
I recently helped out for a singular day on an End Of The Road animation for the Low Anthem's single, Charlie Darwin. I helped animate the sea and the boat in the third shot, and helped to carve and stain the legs of the chair that Charlie sits on in the barn. Not a considerable contribution by any stretch of the imagination but it was a fun (if a little tedious and laborious) experience and Glenn and everyone did such a good job with the whole video, that I figured I would share their hard work with you guys.

I now have some representation from the wonderful agency of Folio. I will let you know when my work is up on the site, but for now, check out www.folioart.co.uk to see who will be taking me under their wing. Lets hope it's the beginning of a long and happy relationship...

This is an editorial about Audrey Tautou playing 'Coco' Chanel in a biopic of the pioneering French fashion designer. She is also the face of the new Chanel No. 5 advert, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (the guy that directed 'Ameilie' and 'A Very Long Engagement').

Another experiment with my portraiture. This time I've illustrated Devendra Banhart, using his album 'Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon' as inspiration. By the way, the album is an eclectic joy!
Two days after graduating University College Falmouth, I was delighted to have been published in the Guardian Weekend. If you happened to buy the paper that Saturday and had turned to page 63, you would have seen my editorial illustration for Oliver Burkeman's 'This Column Will Change Your Life'. Here is a photo of the image in action...

I was incredibly chuffed to find out that I've been awarded a First Class BA(Hons) Degree for Illustration. It's been a busy, tiring three years but I've loved it. I now step out of education (after 19 years) into the abyss of real life. Wish me luck...

This was an editorial piece that I did about a month ago. Its about how Bon Iver's Justin Vernon hid out in his father's hunting cabin in Wisconsin after splitting with his girlfriend and contracting glandular fever.
Yet another book cover to add to the collection. This one consists of the optimistic thoughts of contemporary philosophers.
Another book cover for your viewing pleasure. Its for a book of short Westerns, including 3:10 to Yuma...this was recently made into a film directed by James Mangold (the guy that did Walk the Line).
I gave myself a day to do this image for my exhibition. Its pretty self-explanatory for what its for...if it's not then I've obviously done a terrible job anyway.
