In progress

pygmy hog poster in progress

An A1 poster on the plight of the poor pygmy hog.

Speaking of stuffed dogs

I made this in September

Jenny with some flowers

Jenny with some fruit

Dog head

Dog head blanket

I found this amazing blanket at a car boot sale but it was £20... too much.. I just re-found the photo and now am very keen to make a blanket with a head sticking out from it.

Hamlet the hamster adventurer

She moves so speedily an in-focus photo is essentially impossible.

Hamlet with tube

Hamlet frantic

Hamlet misunderstands horse

I bought her this little horse at a flea market but she just hasn't quite got the hang of riding it.

There's only one great war a century- who'd not be in it?


Figures from the next great war


Part of a series that is on hiatus. We have to 'experiment with materials'.

The new Le Gun, obv

I'm making a magazine (ok, zine) every month from now on until the day I die*. It is, at this stage, a collaborative effort: 20 pages, 21 people (cover too) all in my illustration/graphics class. Fund raising for the degree show. Called Embryo because we are all ickle first years, watch us grow over the course of the magazine's life. Class.

Here's issue one. Theme: erm, embryos.

Oh wait, here's mine first. Look out for it below, see how craptastic the copy quality was. Next time: black line drawing only.

page 1, mark's

the failings of tonal drawings

jess & miles' pages

* or until I get tired of it, or decide to make it more like every year, or every four years, or every century

Another ambiguous animal


Saturday, December 8, 2007



I have a couple more bits and pieces to post. Sadly my tutor's mother died right in the middle of the class last week, so of course the rest of the classes this term are cancelled. I think they will give us a couple of sessions next term to make up for it- everyone was leaving all the glazing til the last week so we've all got hundreds of half finished things lying around. So maybe I'll have a couple more bits to post in the distant future.

My computer is back, fixed, fingers crossed. In the meantime I have almost completely stopped working at all. Ah, exhaustion. My old friend.

Anyway there are still a few bits and pieces from the last while but I imagine I'll run out in the not too distant future. You never know though, maybe I'll start doing some work again. Bright side!

Leave of absence

My computer suffered a terrible death. It is in the shop getting a new brain and new electrics. Meanwhile I will attempt to do a lot of work to put up when it returns. And hey, if you're buying a new computer, don't get a macbook.

page three

It's a grey holepunch next to one yellow punched hole.

It sounds like: a low drone for three seconds, punctuated by a sound like a fingertip tapping a tabletop every second. Can you guess what sounds like this?

A book of made up synesthesic prompts. Meant to be an impossible guessing game, getting gradually more specific and absurd...

Synaesthesia book, first page

Reads: "It looks like: three orange cuboids of equal size on a descending slope. Can you guess what looks like this?"

second page
"It's the sound of a phone ringing" "It sounds like snapping a stick of raw green pepper in half. Can you guess what sounds like this?"

I'll post the next double page tomorrow. Cliffhanger!
