Whilst working at Nonconform I recently designed wall graphics for the meeting rooms of Liverpool Housing Trust. The vinyl graphic works as two continuous lines that unfold and travel around the room, the beginning and end of each line connect.

Recently designed a poster for Oxjam Liverpool to promote a gig for singer-songwriter Lucy Rose. She performs on Thurs 16th Oct at East Village Arts Club. See the full poster. I’ll be adding a new section to my illustration page soon.
I was recently asked to create some illustrations for Oxjam Liverpool. The illustrations needed to reflect Liverpool & incorporate elements of the Oxjam brand. The drawings have been rolled out across social media & will appear on printed posters for the event. You can see them here on Facebook and Twitter.
After years of kicking ink across the carpet, using anything in the immediate vicinity as a paint palette, piling sketchbooks everywhere and generally taking over the house with all my drawing stuff, I now finally work from my own studio, hidden away at the bottom of the garden.
This weekend I have been painting at Mark-it, a celebration of street art in Liverpool. You can see more pics HERE. Huge thank you to Pam and everyone else who organised it. It was also nice of the sun to make an appearance, after a rather grim rainy start to the weekend.
For a limited time only you can buy my ‘Mermaid Hair’ design on a t.shirt thanks to the lovely Mister Dress Up. Mister Dress up is an online t-shirt store where they showcase new artists every week. They kindly asked me to send them a design to be featured on their site.
Nice to have a drawing published on Creative Review Feed. The drawing is inspired by a beautiful peacock feather headdress by Louis Vuitton.
I recently spent many satisfying hours typesetting a poem that adorns the entrance hall of the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) at the beautiful Cecil Sharp House in London. This work was carried out at Nonconform.
So I’ve entered a few of my cosmic based drawings in to a clothing competition here. There are 3 designs to choose from, Space Ballet, Star Field Gown & Stellar Curls. Available on t.shirts, vest tops & sweatshirts too.
