1. Prepping for Cherrywood Art Fair. I made a stamp for my bags. It’s the first stamp I’ve ever made and it’s not as easy as I’d thought it would be (ha). I also made this little greenhouse thingy to use as the centrepiece of my stall. I had to do an emergency run for [...]

Marvel at: Helen Stratton (1867 – 1961). I’m sure that like me, you will have seen these images before sometime, somewhere. [...]

It has been a bit of a slow week for me in my atelier but that is OK. Sometimes, being slow and going out looking is important studio work too. Here are some pictures from this week — I have been shuffling ships and cities and walking with my boys.

A long time ago, I lived in a northern city in the UK called Sheffield. A few weeks ago, an old friend from Sheffield asked me to create an illustrated, paper-cut, layered piece for his web design agency, Creative Stream. Sheffield is post-industrial but it’s also one of the UK’s greenest cities. It is both [...]
