I've been working as Curatorial Project Co-ordinator for an exhibition at House of Illustration called 'Pushing the Envelope' (click link to learn more), and cheekily have submitted my own envelope artwork to be displayed alongside the illustrators we've asked to participate. I know I'm biased, but have a look at the House of Illustration website or follow them on twitter as it is a fantastic place with really fun exhibitions.

I've been working on this painting over the last few evenings - it is based on lyrics from the song 'Farewell Appalachia' by Stornoway (a fantastic band if you don't know them already). I now wish I'd put more time and thought into the composition because I like to think a really fantastic painting could convince one of the members of Stornoway to marry me and/or commission me to illustrate their next album cover. Hey, maybe next time eh?

My friend Dan commissioned me to do a series of 40 small drawings to illustrate his #40daysofredemption series of posts for Lent - they can be seen on his blog Redeeming Sound. I was pushed for time so just did a series of quick sketches in pencil - but I think they mostly work, and they look good as a set below. Not all of the articles went up as planned in the end but I think they'll be going up over the next few weeks so follow Redeeming Sound on Twitter if you're interested.

Keep up to date with my most recent projects.
