Benefit Poster


A nurse friend of my wife is walking 2000 miles from Amsterdam to Barcelona for 'Medecins Sans Frontieres' in 2011. As part of his fundraising efforts he's putting on a talent contest and asked me to draw up a poster advertising the event. Head on over to www.walka2b.co.uk for more details and give him some support.

Cheers.

Real Refreshment


Picked this old Coca-Cola ad up from an antiques shop in Gloucester, MA, a month or so back. There was quite a collection of old retro magazine ad's in the place. This Coke one took my fancy. The illustration would probably be replaced by some slick polished photography if it was to be done these days. I like it's style, just need to get a frame for it.

OutSmart

The OutSmart project is the brainchild of illustrator Gemma Randall who put a call out to fellow illustrators to produce a piece of work based around the quirky little Smart Car. Above is my effort depicting the smart car and driver, chilled and relaxed, up on a cloud away from the congestion and road rage below, while the sun shines and beams across at them.

Currently there's a blog supporting the project with a full website about to go live real soon. This proposal features some great talent and prints of a select few, including mine I'm pleased to say will be available at the Smart Festival on the 4th September then through the website store. Unless they all get snapped up at the festival.

You can keep up to date on developments via twitter

Decked


Here's my effort for this years 'Decked' exhibition which will be taking place at the Coningsby Gallery from the 15th August. I do seem to be obsessed with drawing/painting characters in little boats, battling the elements of the open water and the creatures of the deep. Have a look at my work for Ammo magazine for another example. Great to spend some time on this, stepping away from the computer and working with paint for a change, I really should do it more often.

For more details on the project and a glimps of some of the other artists taking part head on over to the Decked blog.

You can also find more details about the exhibition over on the Coningsby Gallery website. There's a private view on the 18th August which I'm going to get myself down to, so I might see you there if you drop by. From the work I've seen from some of the other artists it's gonna be worth a look, and I'm really happy to be a part of it.

MacUser Showcase


Some of my work is showcased in the latest issue of MacUser (7th May - Vol 26 No10) Features a few pieces of my work, accompanied by a little waffle about me and my processes. Always good to see your work in print and out in the world. There's also a preview of the new iphone OS, which may be of interest to those who own one. I don't at present, but it's on my wish list. Maybe later this year. So anyway pop on down to your local newsagents and pick up a copy.

Cheers.
