Concertina Roughs

I still wanted to continue making concertina books:

This is the second part of one my completed books, Who Will slay the beast, a collection of knights and soldiers who fight a monster at the end. I thought that perhaps I could make a much longer monster image and perhaps have soldiers on the other side of the book. (No idea how I can get that printed yet.) Still needs to be edited a little bit.

Another Knight that I wanted to add. Not all of them are brave~

Another idea I had for a book was a collection of dinosaurs and cowboys- who start a war with each other.

Southampton Show is officially over.

Its been quite a strange and tiring week but yesterday our Gallery show has finally closed, two more shows in London to go. Thought I'd post up this nice picture Stacey took for me on the opening night.

More Free Napkins

Drew these on napkins today.

Just made these drawings without really thinking too hard about what it should be, a nice little break from my 'Hohum' commision  to make some nice doodles. 

Free Napkins

Maybe its about time I stopped giving these away (unless of course, I happen to be friends with you.)
Honestly? I don't think these are anything special, but according to a lot of people they are- so much so that there are some out there who would want to buy them. How much would you charge someone for a drawing on a napkin?


My blog started as a small part of my final major project but even though my studies are now over (except the actual graduation part which isn't until sometime in November) I'd  still really like to keep my blog going. Right now my gallery is still open to the public in the bargate shopping Centre in Southampton (the show closes this Thursday night):

Version 1 of my Window Display.
I was lucky enough to get a window display. The characters dotted around it did eventually fall off and I just had to end up placing most of it on the floor. (still didn't look too bad.)

Drawings I made in cafes on paper napkins pinned to a washing line. What amazes me is people really want to buy these- maybe I ought to stop giving them away...
The Opening Night was a success, my work seemed to create quite a bit of interest, most of the general public I was approached by felt my work would make some great childrens books.
Speaking of Childrens books, I've got a small commision to work on a childrens book known as Hohum the Hohum. Its a lot easier to draw for a story when its fun to read. I've got at least four drawings for it so far and thankfully its kept me busy doing something creative.

I've also had time to work on some personal projects such as this- I'd like to use this as my invite card to the London Gallery show we have next month.
And also a monkey with a guitar.
