Got way too sidetracked today looking at the best website of all time zooborns. Fennec, Silver & Arctic foxes have quickly been added to my pet wish list, alongside bears, wolves and bush-babies.

I hadn't done any isometric drawing since school, and I sure as hell didn't stick to the rules here. It looks wrong, but then again right at the same time, its such a higgledy piggledy piece of architecture. It made for a very interesting and enjoyable illustration none the less.
The first drawing for a new collection I'm working on. I want to draw all my favourite buildings in Leeds, the city I dearly miss. Once I've got a hefty collection I plan to put together a montage, but at the rate of which its taking me to draw these intricate pieces, thats a long way off yet.

As if my little sister was about to sell this at a car boot sale! The little pups were staring at me from the top of her mountainous box of crap, feeling like they didn't belong there. Don't worry shar pei lovers, I saved them and now they hang upon my wall. I've named them Wrinkles (after my shar pei beanie baby that's dust-covered somewhere in the loft) and Frank (because he looks like a Frank)

I was asked to create a poster for the Michaelmas Festival in South Wales, based around the mythological character "The Green Man". The artwork is all hand painted, as requested, which made a bit of change from my usual pen and pencil work.

"FREEZE DRIED ice cream for astronauts, a canoe and an emergency distress flare all feature among the most bizarre items donated to PDSA charity shops during the past year. In among the daily donations of clothing, books and bric-a-brac, the leading veterinary charity has received a wide range of weird and wonderful items recently, from the quirky to the downright dodgy! A deadly Samurai Sword was one of the more frightening donations pulled from a PDSA pink collection sack and was immediately handed to the police. Other dangerous donations included live rifle rounds, replica handguns and an emergency distress flare." Catworld Magazine.

I was involved in the remaking of the PDSA's charity shop in Headingley in Leeds, alongside a small group of designers. I was responsible for the new logo / facia / shop window / interior design / artwork to sell / advertising. Come see it, buy some beautiful vintage gems, help out the poorly pets.
Hopefully our concept will be going national, watch out Britain.
