'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.
