I will be one of 16 up and coming artists exhibiting at this years "Collectible" show at Aspace's monument gallery, Southampton. All work will be affordable and for sale so come along and check out this fun and exciting show! For more info contact aspace at or check out the website

In preparation for the show I have been working on a whole hoard of new dibbens........


Work finished this week...
"The Dancers" and "The Husband Tree".

My graphic pamphlet (novel seemed a bit strong!)

After seeing a blobfish voted as weird animal of the week on the net I felt compelled to chronicle his search for love and the mishaps he encounters. Just a fun excuse to draw weird and wonky sea creatures really!

Cheltenham Illustration Awards 2009

Thursday 8th Oct was the private view of the third annual Cheltenham Illustration Awards.
Simone Lia and Tom Gauld were guest speakers and also exhibited a range of their latest work alongside that of the student and emerging talent entries. It was a fantastic day out that began with talk from Simone and Tom who were both incredibly engaging and entertaining. As each slide came up there was a hush and a little ripple of laughter as the audience all got to the punch line of each illustration at the same time. The quality of the work was fantastic and the bright modern exhibition space in Gloucester uni all added to the high quality of the show. After crisps and sarnies the awards were presented and mingling commenced!

My piece, "Cast Adrift", was the one chosen for the exhibition.....check out the pics!
