MURALS

This is a mural I did ages ago with PRSC on Stokes Croft.
It was really good fun and is still there amongst loads of other
fantastic graffiti!
This piece represents ruthless greedy developers gobbling up our parks and country side.

This is another mural that we did as a collaboration with
a few peeps from Jamaica Street Studios in 2008 to advertise 
our annual open studios. The mural painting has become an institution
for us now, we have painted one 3 years running. 
I will dig around to find pictures from previous years!

FLYER for THE ART OF PICTURE BOOKS


I designed this flyer in the new style for a children's book exhibition I curated at the Nails Gallery in February this year. The exhibition was great fun an hosted nearly 30 children's book illustrators from in and around Bristol. The show was well received with visitors from publishers, agents, schools and universities from London, Oxford, Bath and Bristol. We also got good press coverage from the AOI, Venue magazine and Computer Arts Magazine.
I am planning to organise a follow up show in February 2010.

NEW STYLE


I have been trying out a new style, mixing some collage, paint and computer elements...
I am really enjoying this as it is a change from the long hours of painting!
