Weird title for a blog post I suppose, but those tiny frogs really are. I just added a couple of new pages to that Vancouver diary– ooo!
Majestic turtle butts and a wedding (note: not at the wedding though, that wouldn’t be so classy).
Also, this guy!
Steve and I went to Vancouver last year but I’ve been a bit (ok a lot!) slow getting the diary pages from our trip sorted. I’m going to be adding them this week! Hooray! There’s a couple up already and I’ll be adding new ones each day so stay tuned.
Follow our adventures in Canada. Bears! Pancakes! A wedding! A haunted house! And… Nicolas Cage.
Stop pulling that face Nicolas Cage.
I said stop.
Happy new year! Hope you are all having most excellent 2016s so far! I had a lovely couple of weeks off doing nothing very demanding, here is a stupid comic about it. Sadly this actually happened because mulled wine is a bad influence on me and my bro Ryan. Mum puts up with a lot of crap. Sorry Mum!
If you would like to hear a sample of that most excellent dance music, you can listen to it here… oh dear.
I’m busy with some last minute Christmas sorting so this is just a quick post to say yey the fairs were so much fun! Thanks to everyone who came along, it was lovely chatting to you and seeing all the work at the fairs. I’ll do a longer post about them soon.
If anyone in Surbiton/Kingston needs to do some last minute shopping, I still have some framed prints and other bits and bobs so email me. I can deliver in the Surbiton area until 23rd Dec (woo!)
Have yourself a bloomin lovely Christmas!
Ahah so this is what I was up to! Making some fun colouring books ready for an uber weekend of Christmas Fairs!
I’ll be at the Illustrator’s Fair in Kings Cross on Saturday 12th December. Come along and say hello! There will be loads of fab illustrators selling lovely stuff and workshops too. Then on Sunday I’ll be at The Lamb Christmas Market in Surbiton, where there will be much local crafty goodness and Christmassy cheer.
The Illustrator’s fair last year was great. I will be sharing a table again this year with the fabulous Jennie Vallis, now if I can just stop myself from buying all her stuff before the fair even starts…
The Lamb Christmas market was also a total blast. I hope they have the same band this year, they were great.
I’ve got some prints that will be new for these fairs, as well as some tote bags, cards and other goodies. Not to mention a few of these little handmade dudes to sit on your christmas tree… so please spread the word and if you come along, mention the magic phrase: ‘I feel so gosh darn Christmassy dammit!’ and receive 10% off all my stock. Hooray!
Uh oh. What are you up to Crow??
Just working on a little something for the Illustrator’s Christmas fair at Kings Cross on the 12th Dec…
Stay tuned for more details but oh my goodness. Neon green!
I am loving this posca pen!
Oh dear, it’s taken me ages to get around to blogging about it, but what an excellent day we had at the Surbiton Festival at the end of September! Many thanks to everyone who came along and said hello!
I had fun exhibiting by the Church on St Andrews Road (listening to the bell and watching the Vicar ringing it was pretty ace!) and it was great to have a chance to chat to people and see all the other stalls (which had some great artwork). The parade went right past the exhibition space as well. I love me a marching band.
Quite a few prints found new homes too which was a delightful bonus! In fact, someone bought a lonesome beast before I’d even finished putting up the exhibition. I like this enthusiasm!
Hope all those beasties are behaving themselves and don’t forget- if you want to buy a print or commission a papercut from me for a Christmas present, drop me a line! I can pop prints in a frame for you too if you live locally – ooo options! I’m working on some new things for the shop too, so stay tuned… more details soon.
A little sneaky look at more papery teefs!
I’ve been beavering away on some new things for the Surbiton festival and they are nearly ready! The teeny pointy teeth? Those were not unfiddly you guys.
I’ll be exhibiting some prints and new papercuts on Maple Road in Surbiton on Saturday (26th Sept) from about 10am- come say hello and see the finished beasties!
Hey! I’m auctioning a print of my worried little astro crocodile (and a pencil sketch as an extra goodie) for Save the Children UK. Hooray!
All proceeds go to charity, so why not have a little bid? You get a fun, signed, limited edition print for your wall and dosh goes to a great cause. Win-win.
I’m doing this as part of the Twitter Colour Collective, a very talented bunch of creative types who get together on Twitter to share their work, based on a different colour each week.
Have a look at some of the lovely stuff they are auctioning too. Ooooo arty goodness.
It’s been really great seeing so many illustrators get involved. Gives me faith in people. All the warm fuzzies. Feels really good! *sniff* What? Oh nothing. Just got something in my eye…
Only 4 days left, so don’t hang about!
