I was recently commissioned by Savera UK to create a set of limited edition hand-illustrated plates and prints for their annual conference for National Memorial Day. Savera UK operates across the United Kingdom to provide services to individuals from Black Minority Ethnic communities who are at risk of domestic abuse. More pics here.

Just a quick post. I spent this weekend starting a mural for the brilliant Hype Merseyside. Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be working on the mural and also working with a school in Birkenhead. I was lucky enough to have a huge tree sheltering me from the blazing sun! I managed an 11 mile run this morning then went straight to paint the wall, must be mad. Here’s a pic from today  (wip) more pics soon…

I submitted my Art Installation called IRIS into Swansea University’s Research as Art competition awards. I won the external / national award! A panel of senior figures from the Royal Institution, Nature and Research Fortnight magazine made the choices from nearly a hundred entries this year. I travelled to Swansea to attend the awards event, you can see all the winning entries here. I would love to create another installation similar to this, hopefully the opportunity will present itself soon.

Trail running in Yorkshire

Quick post. Over the weekend I went off to Yorkshire to run with the fab Due North. I have taken part in 3 of their events now, and enjoyed each one thoroughly. Although I had a terrible cold and slight strain in my hip I ran the stunning 14 mile route, starting in Grassington and then through Burnsall. The weather was completely insane, and very challenging at times because of -3 degree temp, high winds and blizzards with intermittent bursts of sunshine! Thank you to Mel, Sue, Hillary & Sarah!

I’ve recently been working on a sans serif corporate typeface for a logistics company (whilst at Nonconform). A lot of the characters have been built from scratch, but I used Avant Garde Gothic as a base. I’ve created Book, Book Oblique, Bold & Bold Oblique weights. (Click on the image.)
