Secret 7 @ Pick Me Up 2014

A few weeks ago I went along to the Pick Me Up 2014 at Somerset House. Billed as "the UK’s original contemporary graphic arts festival", I thought that the selection of international artists included in the main exhibition was a lot stronger than in recent years and had a good time at the show. The day I was there, there was a workshop with Secret 7 inviting people to create a record sleeve design based on a selection of seven songs. I decided to join in and produced a sleeve for Ghost Town by The Specials...

Happy Birthday Chantel!

It was my friend Chantel's birthday the other week, and she finally got around to celebrating this past weekend. Here's the card I made for her, featuring her ever-changing hair colour...

And here's an animated gif I made of the card in action...

24 Hours to Go Broke

As part of the online promotion for their new show 24 Hours To Go Broke which started tonight, the TV channel Dave were running a Twitter competition today to create an advert for the show, with the chance to win cash prizes up to £50. As I had an hour to spare, I decided to give it a go and produced the following poster...

And I won 50 quid! :)

Happy Birthday Anna!

It was my friend Anna's birthday the other day and tonight we went out for drinks to celebrate. Anna's done quite a lot of knitting projects recently, so I drew her a card with a knitted version of Anna...

And she was wearing the actual outfit I drew her in!!!
