I will be sporting a particularly heavy pencil, and maybe a brush pen or two, at the ICA's regular live drawing/drinking event on Thursday February 4th. Good friend and fellow illustrator John Slade was invited to the event and asked me to partner up with him for some vaguely cinematic musical doodlings for a couple of hours. The event is free so come along if you can.
More exhibition based work for the Futurelab crew and their stand at the BETT 2010 education and technology event in Earls Court, London. The exhibition, which also featured the Spark illustrations I recently finished for them, needed an overall banner design to tie everything together under the header 'Bringing Learning To Life'. A photo shoot of local school kids in Bristol was arranged by Futurelab and lovingly shot by Tom Bunning for the final illustration.

Here's one of those jobs that got away. A couple of pitch illustrations for a Heineken ad campaign that seemed to go down well until said campaign strategy was nuked. Oh well, I'll just have to sup on Pabst Blue Ribbon from now on.

My agent Anna Goodson Management have revamped their website and it's looking pretty sweet. Lots of new features and work from fantastic illustrators such as Paul Blow, Michelle Thompson, Mario Wagner, Phil Wheeler and Daniel Stolle to name a few. Get some.

Had a lovely time in Cornwall over the holiday with the lady wife. We spent Chrimbo week in gorgeous St.Ives and visited regular haunts Sennen, Godrevy Point and the ultra-cosy Xmas light show at Mousehole. The natural light down there is something else. Ok, enough whimsy, work starts in earnest tomorrow after I get shot of this cold. Keep em peeled.
Happy New Year peeps, 2010 and still no flying cars...what the hell?! The builders are aiming for the sky in London again though (nice segue) after a bout of crane stalling during the recession. I'm stuck in the flat with a bunged up head lamenting the loss of my own little view of the 'Gherkin' from the upstairs window. The Heron Tower is going up in front of it like some blocking-view-son-of-a-bitch thing!
