The Line King And Sleeping Beauty

Here are a couple of personal collage pieces I've been working on recently. An off-kilter cyber mash-up of retro peeps and hard tech with some nice knitwear thrown in for good measure.

Here's an illustration in the current issue of New Scientist for a fascinating article on 'Tree Sense' and how trees experience the world around them...before becoming tables.

Kirtan Call

Here's a four page spread I worked on for Yoga Journal in San Francisco tracing the influence of kirtan chanting on music over the last 40 years featuring the likes of Wonder, Glass, Harrison and Boy George!

Destination Solar Sytem

BBC Focus magazine commissioned me to create three double page spread sci-fi vistas for an article on destinations that scientists would most like to explore in our solar system. Those included the The Seven Sisters caverns under Martian surface, Chao Meng-Fu crater on Mercury and Loki Patera lava lake on Io. Had great fun with these as well as racking up a few holiday ideas for the future.

John Bonham vs Depeche Mode

My work for Ryan Cox's rock'n'roll inspired collection of poetry A Circus Mind comes to a close with this double-whammy post of Led Zeppelin's drummer John Bonham and Depeche Mode. I'm looking forward to seeing all the illustrations published later this year along with some great work from Dushan Milic, Julia Minimata, Zela Lobb, Elissa Parente and Jacqui Oakley. Will keep you posted.

Paul Simon

Here's another portrait for A Circus Mind, a young Paul Simon. Let's call him Al shall we.

London Scene

London's so hot right now! (weather aside). Here are a few Instagram-ified snaps I've take from around town recently.

Pippin Time

For my wife's birthday recently we took off for another glampy getaway to South Devon to stay in a charming gypsy caravan going by the name of Pippin. It was placed in a lovely orchard where we could kick back with a drink, cook on the open fire, chat to the pheasants and even take a dip in a hot tub (minus time machine capabilities) tucked away in a corner of the field. In the day we toured the local towns and beaches, including a laid-back Totnes, Salcombe and Bigbury-on-Sea with it's sea tractor to murder-central Burgh Island, the setting for a couple of Agatha Christie novels.
