New Beginnings

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

Howl Projects Berlin exhibition

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.





4 illustrated promotional cards for ‘The Lab’

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.










Here we go again…



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.
