'Story Sharers' - Community Project

Made a small contribution to a local community project about, well people sharing their stories I guess. Stories people have been told as children, stories written by children; personal stories, all sorts. A selection of these will be published in a small book for people to buy locally. I’ve illustrated a few of them, here are some of my faves.

Sketchbook Stuff

Not feeling well! Here's some sketchbook stuff I've been doing to pass the time.

 Food & Drink - here's Perkie sipping away and Jen with an orange on her face.

 Fashion - I like that tartan blazer thing and the braids.

Wildlife - an inky lion.

The Tuts girl gang girl


Just a t-shirt/patch/tote bag/anything else design I did for The Tuts again. An all-girl, 3-piece, raucous punk band. 
Inspiration taken from Switchblade Sisters (1975), 80’s hairdos and The Tuts.

After doing This I started looking at Love & Rockets a comic series by the Hernandez brothers which, deals with similar themes to this  illustration: punk, lots of good female characters and black and white artwork!

Kate Nash Signed My Sketchbook!

Kate Nash signed my sketchbook! This was when The Tuts were supporting her at The Shacklewell Arms. Picking an animal from it, she said she quite like bongos, haha. I gave her that ink doodle I did of her in return.

Kate Nash & The Tuts, 1/11/12 at The Shacklewell Arms

Went to see Kate Nash and the Tuts at The Shacklewell Arms. Kate Nash was incredible! The Tuts looked amazing in their mermaid themed outfits, but I could barely see Bev Tut in that weird little lonely alcove. So the venue was a bit annoying, but all in all, a great gig.

Kate Nash Ink Doodle


Just an inky doodle I did. If you look carefully you can see my vain efforts to draw her using a dark pencil. Got angry and rubbed it all out and started fresh using a brush pen.
I might be seeing her tomorrow at The Shacklewell Arms, London. Fingers crossed!).

Shadow Snatcher (Wired Up Series)


Just received a few copies of Shadow Snatcher from the publisher. This particular one in the series is targeted at a slightly younger audience compared to Petrify, which was a bit more gorey. Shadow Snatcher is written by Lou Kuenzler.
I’ll be working on some colour illustrations hopefully in a few months on a girls classic tales series for QED Publishing, (fingers crossed!).

The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling


Any excuse to draw animals.This was a book cover I did a while back. I don't know if I made a mistake by making it monochrome. Hmm.

Mmm, here's yesterday's breakfast, and here's a new song by Dum Dum Girls from their new EP (End of Daze):
Lord Knows.

Colour Me Wednesday Merch!

…and a Tuts patch throne in for good measure. Just wanted to take a few progress snaps, (these aren't very good photos).

My designs have a purpose in life now! CMW have been beavering away relentlessly to get the designs onto t-shirts, and patches. There’s also lovely tote bags that have been hand printed with love too, (very good quality I might add). Need to take pictures of them. If you live around West London go see these crafty, DIY bands live on Sunday at Uxbridge.

To Kill a Mockingbird


Just playing around with some monoprint-ish designs and came up with these book covers for the above novel by Harper Lee. (The Blue design was an afterthought and didn't quite reflect the story). I have to give this one a re-read some day.

Spitalfield City & Hackney City Farm


Really wanted to draw animals, so I dragged my brother and a friend along to these small but beautiful, (and very smelly) farms. I remembered why I drew dead animals in museums, (they don’t move). The best part of the visit was of course the working farm cats! There were signs asking not to pet them…I petted them.

The Handmaid’s Tale: Book Cover Design


Sheesh, this one turned out totally different from what I had initially imagined. This is a book cover I designed for the novel by Margaret Atwood. Great story, (I like post-apocalyptic-y stuff; I can’t wait forThe Last of Us on PS3). However, the situation the women were in reminded me of black slavery, but everyone in the story was white!

Oryx and Crake: Book Cover Design


Just finishing off reading this book by Margaret Atwood and thought I’d do a book cover for it. I readThe Handmaid’s Tale first and fell in love with her vivid style. Maybe I’ll do a cover for The Handmaids Tale too.

I wanted to play around with a simple colour palette for once. I’ve included some process/detail images here too, because it wasn’t so messy/embarrassing.
Oh, and here’s a song by Best Coast: The Only Place - from their new album. It reminds me of the sun, Hope you enjoy!
