Just a quick update to show my handmade letter set …long live hand written correspondence! In the age of rapid digital communication, the hand written letter becomes quite a novelty and needs to be celebrated. It is with this in mind I created this letter set featuring my illustrations and a bit of hand painted type!

Wow! this has to be a little dream of mine come true -to have my artwork printed big and hung on the side of a building! -surely every artist’s (and illustrator’s!) ultimate canvas! -This was a commission through the lovely people at Eye Candy Festival and Southside along with my excellent fellow illustrators, Michelle Turton and Louise Brangwin. It was great to be able to work with the girls before having previously collaborated on projects with Inkygoodness and House of Aces in the past.

The building is Unity House (134 Bromsgove Street) and has had a long and colourful past, and to celebrate this each artist took a period in time from the building’s history to inspire a series of 4 large scale panel illustrations. My period was the Victorian Era and I wanted to tell the story as if from a Victorian fairy tale.

Beermat Cat!

Freaky eared cat

Hand painted gouache cat for Inkygoodess beer mat character exhibition

Ahh this is the cat that didn’t quite make it as a beer mat for the Inkygoodness Beer Mat character exhibition in London (he just wasn’t finished in time!) poor fellow I was still fixing his ears! But I felt he couldn’t spend his whole life in the shadows so I thought he might make a good (slightly belated!) Halloween post! (He with the freakishly small ears!) -so here he is in all his gouache goodness!
