Just finished a bunch of freelance illustration work this week that hopefully I’ll be able to share very soon. There’s also a good chance I may be able to share an exciting project I worked on for the majority of last year that has a substantial amount of artwork involved. Anyways until then, in the spare hours over the last few weeks i’ve been pottering away on a reworking of ‘The Goatman eats a sandwich’ painting, I rarely go back to a piece but was never happy with the original, he came out ok so can finally call this one done.
Here’s also a logo I did recently for a local music promotions company in Falmouth, Cornwall, UK. Check them out here at their facebook page: Nettlefold Productions
Just to note i am pretty terrible at maintaining updates on this site but am a lot more active on Instagram @ sawhorse_illustration or find me on facebook.
Standard editions of both ‘Souvenir’ and ‘The Bone Yard Ballet’ are officially out of print, however I am left with a few boxes of slightly damaged stock that I’m selling at a reduced price. All of these are classed as having minor shelf wear, and are still unread editions. In the Bone Yard Ballet’s case there may be the odd scratch when turned to the light, with Souvenir a small imperfection in part of the foil blocking detail. The contents of the book remain in perfect printed condition and are in no way effected. At Sawhorse I always try to maintain the highest standard in the products so simply I cannot sell these as in mint condition.
Editions of ‘Souvenir’ are available form the Sawhorse Big Cartel shop at £4.50 + p&p, ‘The Bone Yard Ballet at £8.00 + p&p.

Stumbled across a couple of bottles of Skinners: Penny Come Quick Ale at the weekend. I illustrated this label earlier in 2016 for the Cornish brewery along with a selection of other talented illustrators who each worked on re-branding their range of of award winning ales. Check them out here.

Been a little quiet on with updates due to moving into an amazing new studio space at the Krowji arts campus, Redruth, Cornwall. Have been working on a few private commissions of late but can’t wait to get down to painting more personal works intended for future exhibitions, prints and also beginning to artwork on the next book.
Please take some time to check out Krowji at their website: here, or their Facebook page: here
So excited to be part of joint exhibition by Howl Projects in Berlin next week at the SomoS gallery. Running from June 23rd – 28th 2015.
Below is one of the new images that will be exhibited. There are also limited edition ‘Ghost Fish’ t-shirts available from the Howl website.
Here are also two in process images from the same series of the above shrouded figure, that i’ve been working on, unfortunately due to time these won’t be making it into the exhibition but when finished will be available as prints.
Just received the printed cards I illustrated for ‘The Labs’ ‘Slow Brew Club’. The brief focussed on moments in human endeavour and achievement in which that person had taken a break to enjoy the slow brew qualities of a damn fine cup of coffee. So we have Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton, the first woman aviator to fly across the Atlantic Amelia Earhart, Neil Armstrong taking his first steps on the moon and Mary Shelley author of Frankenstein.
Almost a year since ‘The Bone Yard Ballet’ waltzed off the press, time has sped by so fast, so just spent the day printing, cutting and sticking the next book into it’s first, rough, but physical form. It’s very exciting to see it finally start coming together.
Back from a great weekend at the Islington Design Fair, and picked up these this morning. Limited edition of 200, printed on quality cotton and available here at the Sawhorse Books Big Cartel Shop. Couple of weekends left until this years 22 Panels Show in Falmouth, Cornwall, more details on that very soon!
