A view from our flat.

I think we are pretty lucky to look out onto trees like this. I do have to stand on my tiptoes or a small box to see out of all our windows, but it is definitely worth the effort! 

I like Autumn. The smells, the colours, the sunshine. 

I am drawing some Autumn inspired illustrations for an exhibition at Leeds Gallery this evening. It's rather fun. I hope you are enjoying yourselves.

Girls Girls Girls

It's another sunny day. I very much like crisp Autumn days.

I told you before that I have been trying to add a feminine touch to my work. Here are some new drawings of girls. Hurrah!

A sunny day...

A sunny day for printing!

Here is a sneak peak of a few of my prints which will be included in the Pop Up Print Shop at SMUG. Camden Passage, London.

I am at the printers now looking out of the window and it's a beautiful sunny day. The trees look happy. Do pop down to SMUG if you can...

I hope you are having a nice day too.

Animal friends.

I am a collector of those small 'Obervers Books.' 

I often hunt for them in my local charity shops. 

Sometimes, I like to just sit and read them and draw from them. I am just about to read 'Notes From Walnut Tree Farm' by Roger Deakin and I am most excited about it. He seemed like a nice man.

Whilst I was studying my my degree. A very clever man once asked me why all the people I drew were balding, middle aged men with too many chins. Since then, I have been practicing how to draw girls. It's quite a tricky subject matter for me and I'm not sure why. 

Here are some recent drawings from my wee sketchbook.

New work, in my new flat.

I have been scanning and editing today. 

I do not know how people work in front of computer screens everyday. It makes my eyes funny.

Anyway here are some new drawings of mine. It would appear that the 'things on top of heads' theme keeps popping up here and there. 

Some more exciting news for you....

Number 1. I'm taking part in the DESIGNERS/MAKERS Christmas Market in Exmouth Market, London this year. It's on for four weeks and I'm super excited. Do pop and see it if you're from that neck of the woods. My cards and prints and other lovely things will be for sale....
I bought a mug with the Queen Mother on it today, from a charity shop for 50p. Still in it's box.

Pop Up Print Shop

I am rather excited to be taking part in the Pop Up Print Shop at SMUG in London.

SMUG is a wonderful shop situated in Camden Passage. From the 26th of October the lovely folk at the shop are launching a a Pop Up Print Shop, filled with lots of prints by lots of artists, including some new work by me! 

If you are around at that time, I thoroughly recommend popping in and having a rifle through... You might just find yourself a treat.

(I don't have any pictures of my work right now, hence the picture of my excited nephew.)
