Meet Bearnard the bear and Angus the Heeland coo!
These are two original illustrations I did for an exhibition at the Open Eye Gallery.
I’ve popped these on Etsy for sale! You can see more of the images and the rest of my shop here.

It’s been far too long since my last post! I’ve had my head in a graphic design cloud and my time consumed by full time work and also creating roughs for two of my commissions. (One of them the QH theatre!) Nothing too exciting to report really, but I’m in the process of creating a small scale piece for the ‘Open Eye Gallery’ in Edinburgh for their Christmas Exhibition, and I stumbled upon this pattern and pointillism concept. But I decided to go with a different ‘eye’dea (sorry..) and thought I’d share this with you anyway! I think I’ll make these into wee little christmas cards!:) Cheerio for now! x

Wow what a mouthful! ^
Life’s been pretty hectic recently! I’m working on several different commissions at the moment and I’ll hopefully have something to show you very soon! I went to my first of 6 weekly life drawing classes tonight, it was a big challenge actually and I felt like it’d been forever since I got the charcoal out, but it just takes a little time to get back into it. Looking forward to next week’s class already, it’s nice to get away from the computer screen! If I’m feeling brave I might pop some images up… maybe…
Anywho my new creative agency’s gallery has moved and reopened in Nottingham! The preview was last Friday and what a fantastic night it was! The new space is completely beautiful, I’ve popped a few photos up by fantastic photographer Jake Jakiewicz (thanks very much!!) which I’ve borrowed from here. You can see my original screenprint cushions and my book Vulpes & Vulpes in the odd image! He’s taken some brilliant photos of the night’s events, but be sure to check out his portfolio too!

Here are a few photos of the Unleashed Exhibition which is STILL RUNNING (GO GO GO!) and on til the 31st August at Mr Tom’s Chop House in Manchester! (Half of the proceeds raised goes to a fantastic charity!) You can see the Facebook site and all of the amazing photos from the auction and awards night and also the judging here. Congratulations to everyone! The talent was unbelievable and I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to take part!! (I didn’t take any of these photos by the way- but I’d like to say a big thank you to whoever did!)

So I’m now living in Nottingham! AND There’s so many foxes here! (It’s a dream come true!) It’s a really beautiful city with art on every corner and when the sun’s shining there’s some rather exciting fountains I can’t wait to jump in!
My first thought was to get involved ASAP in the creative art scene here so when I stumbled upon this beautiful eclectic little gallery called ‘The Davenport Shop of Originality‘ I was so delighted when they said they’d exhibit my work! So now you’ll soon be able to find my Ugly Walruses, Celio and my foxes in Nottingham! (pictures to come soon!)
For a current commission for the Queens Hall Theatre in Edinburgh I took some inspirational reference photos of some amazing street musicians including this jazz player and his saxophone. I thought it was a pretty awesome photo so I thought I’d pop it up on here!
